I have 580 Precisions and. HD6xxs. Any reason why I should go for these?

The reason to buy them is for their decent price to performance ratio. On top of that they are easier to drive so these would work better with a weaker amp and be less muddy on a mobile device.

Thanks. Those are good reasons, but neither applies well to me. To ask a better question, is the sound signature of the new phones sufficiently different from the original 580 and the 650/6xx to justify yet another Sennheiser HP? And I guess I'd ask the same about the HD 600s.

As for sound picture a hd 600 that is 10% less detailed sound on the high end and mid but has punchier bass. Same for the hd 650, the hd 58x is slightly less detailed overall but it makes up for it by being more accessible by price and scales better with lower end equipment.

I can't speak to the 6 x axis but I have a pair of precision 580s I bought 14 years ago and these are clearly different, more Bass 4 sure but I like it. If ur 580s sound flat to you, these might be bassy. If they sound bass light, you'll like em. I have the precisions too and they never had the extension I wanted except when cranked up. I think the precision midrange, vocals might be slightly better but I've only got 58xs yesterday so more listening required
