View Full Discussion This is a great deal for what the product usually sells for, but Sennheiser makes a better headphone unit IMO that's intended for music producers at a cheaper price point. See this: http://head-phones.findthebest.com/compare/315-4388/Sennheiser-HD600-vs-Sennheiser-HD6-Mix
Lower impedance, wider and flatter frequency response with a higher output. You might say that 112 dB output is unnecessary, but the reality is with any set of speakers when you are limited by a low max output the speakers start to self compress the signal far before you've hit the output ceiling. Higher output speakers, whether they are loudspeakers or headphones will produce a more open and dynamic sound.
What's funny is that the HD600's have a MUCH higher MSRP than the HD6-Mix even though the HD6-Mix beats the HD600's on all specs. But the "Audiophile" market is one that's easy to upsale to unfortunately.
I'm sure anyone getting these headphones will be very pleased, but wanted to let the community know that there are other options out there, and maybe in the future we can get a massdrop for some HD6 Mix headphones. That being said, I'll probably purchase a pair of these headphones myself because I'm a bit of a gear addict ;-)
The HD6-Mix are closed back headphones, so a comparison between the two is pointless, as they serve completely different needs. The HD6 is meant to be a studio monitor, which means the sound is very analytical, what many people refer to as "boring", whereas the sound of the HD600 is catered more towards listening to music. The Biggest difference, however, will be the much larger sound stage of the HD600, which is something that is really only found in open back headphones.
