Please, could someone advise me on this? I have a decend DAC (Audioquest DragonFly 1.2). Would it be a good thing to buy these headphones instead of the HD600? Currently I've got HD598 and I decided to buy the HD600 model, but just a few minutes ago I discovered this massdrop. I'm worried about the lowered impedance of these headphones. Are there any drawbacks? Are they worse than HD600 because of it? Should I just stick to my previous choice (HD600), hence I already have a DAC that can handle 300ohms without any problems, or would it be wiser to buy HD58X from this massdrop?
General consensus is that they have better bass extension but the mids on the HD600 are slightly better and more emphasized.
Keep in mind that the HD600 has a impedance peak to 500ohms around 100Hz, so the DF could struggle to power them.
higher impedances are easier on the amp, not harder!
