Are these worth getting if you have HD 6XX? Even without any mods? I would appreciate if someone who has both could shine some light...
No it isnt worth it imo. They do sound different though. The 58x is easier to drive and you can easily use it unamped with a smartphone or laptop and achieve high enough volume. I enjoy listening to the 58X more personally as well. Both are good, but one is not different or better enough to justify owning both pairs IMO. If i had neither, i would for sure get the 58X.
I think so, I actually prefer my HD58X to my HD6XX. I switched the ear pads between the two and removed and removed the foam between the driver and the grill.
What amp are you using for both ?
I have the element from JDS labs, the schiit modi3 and magni3, and a FIIO A5 for when portable. but neither headphone sound bad on a 30 yr old yamaha stereo reciever I have as well. I'm no audiophile or anything but I cant tell a huge difference between the amps and the old reciever.
gotta get an OTL tube amp like the darkvoice 336/little dot mkii/mkiii/mkiv/woo wa3/la figaro 339
