Choosing among the legendary Sennheiser HD 5/6__ is a matter of judging among slight tradeoffs. This iteration features the tightest, most extended bass of the lot and is slightly easier to drive than the earlier generation at the expense of some slight resolution. It also seems a little more speedy/lithe/nimble in terms of quick bursts of sound. The tuning in the upper mids is also more laid back, which pushes instruments and voices back a little, which I like; the HD 600 felt just a tad forward or shouty to me, particularly at higher volumes. It's also a few bucks cheaper than even the extraordinarily priced HD 6xx. Worthwhile tradeoffs in my case. Well done!
