Buying my first set of headphones this week and this popped up. Any reason to buy the HD599s or should I just risk it and go for these?
important part is I don’t have an amp so it would be powered by my iPad Pro 12 in. and would also need them to work well with a playstation 4 controller input
I doubt these will work well on a Playstation 4 controller, since while 150 ohms is less than some say the 6xx, it'll still be decently hard to drive. It might work just it'll most likely be quiet.
Devices like the iPad Pro should work fine with this
Consider buying the dac x6 from fx audio if you want to game comfortably with high impedance headphones. Just plug the dac/amp in the optical output of your console and there you are !
I'd take these over the 599s any day of the week and twice on Sundays. HD-600s sound better than HD-599s out of an iPhone.
The 580/6xx range is just outright a better headphone.
Did you compare 599 and 58X head to head in terms of sound quality?
I have compared 598 (original) and 58X head to head, and the 58X easily wins.
I had previously compared 598 to 599, and thought it was basically a dead heat.
599 is supposedly a better tweaked 598...but for me 599 vs 58X is still unclear
