Astro a40 Vs 6xx

more_vert
Hi I'm looking to upgrade from my astro a40s for both gaming as music. I'm worried about people saying the 6xx 58x EST have a narrow soundstage. How does the 6xx soundstage compare to my astro a40s?  I know the 6xxs will be an upgrade it terms of music so as long as my gaming experience stays similar or gets better (hunting footsteps) I'll be happy. :)

The 6xx is an improvement over the a40, but HD700 is what you are looking for. keep an eye out for a cheap pair on black friday. I got my second pair of HD 700 last week because the price dropped down to 380. If the HD 700 price range is too high, then i would recommend the GSP600 with the GSX1000, which is a big improvement over the HD 6xx for gaming.

Haven’t tried it, but most people like the 6xx better than the 58x. I had something similar to the 58x can’t remember the model, and it wasn’t great.

HiFiman 4XX is a good deal right now they dropped the price to 130. Would still rather have the gsp600 over all of those.
