6XX with O2 + ODAC
more_vert
Just received my new headphones and DAC/Amp. I'm loving the sound quality, huge upgrade over my Cloud Aplhas ran off of motherboard. Music sounds like it's in the room with me rather than coming through some headphones. Anyway, I posted this to let anyone who is going to order to go ahead and get the ear pad upgrades. I'm ordering the fenestrated sheepskin as soon as I post this.

I tend to recommend that you don't swap pads on new gear until you've spent a good amount of time with it. If there is serious issue with fit then I'd say go ahead and swap 'em. If sound improvements are your aim most are not happy with the sound changes from stock pads on the 650/6XX.

That's good to hear! Thank you. I struggled with this decision for weeks. I had a limited budget of about 300 and many choices.
I do love how the 6XX has made a classic very affordable. I paid $319 for the 650 alone and it was the first time I found it that low from a reputable source. The O2 is also a classic and the SDAC a great no frills DAC.
