I have Senn HD 6XX. Its absolutely awesome. Costs 220 now. I bought it for 195$. You need an amplifier, though. Even a low-end DAP like Shanling m0 drives it well. Clarity is very very good. Used with Objective 2 amp, and Centrance DAC (size of a big USB stick), it opens up even more. I guess you are looking for a top-end set, with a 600$ budget. These days, it's not just entry level audiophile headphones you can buy for this amount. Have you considered buying more than one? I usually shift between Meze and 6xx. I alternate between them. And try this info too, though all these might not be available in Drop. https://diyaudioheaven.wordpress.com/ The community has a very knowledgeable and helpful set of ppl. I'd be surprised if folks suggest MASSDROP X FOCAL ELEX or Mr. Speakers ether CX.

Yeah the HD 6XX was calling my name, but someone mentioned that I would likely be better off with a Closed pair. I looked at the Mr. Speakers Ether CX, but sadly even with the sale price, it's out of my budget =/. There's not a whole lot of in-stock items to choose from on Drop as far as I can tell. The only Closed pair that seems like a strong choice is the BD 177X GO, but I've read so many complaints about the cable. My FiiO accepts the standard 3.5mm plug, so not sure how that would work. If you or anyone else has any more recommendations, please let me know. All the good headphones appear to be sold out and discontinued. Also from Canada, so still curious to know if there are any fellow Canadians that dealt with import fees/duties, which would be a deciding factor in buying from the site.

Drop + THX Panda -- Bluetooth Audio Clipping Whenever Resumed from a Pause of More than 2 Seconds
I don't have much experience with Bluetooth headphones and figured I'd ask here to help set my expectations a bit. I just bought some Drop + THX Panda headphones. They're well reviewed for sound quality and supporting higher-end audio codecs, some of which Macs support (eg: aptX) and some of which they don't (eg: LDAC). Anywho, upon unboxing them and pairing them to my 2020 iMac running Big Sur, I noticed that audio over bluetooth sounds totally fine until it's been paused for more than 2 seconds. When I unpause, it almost feels as if maybe the headphones are coming out of some standby or low-power mode and are rushing to start a new bit stream. The sound is clipped / distorted for a second or two until it "catches up". This is particularly annoying for things like notifications and other sound effects which, by nature, are essentially really short audio clips. I can't find anything online explaining if this is normal behavior or just a shortcoming of bluetooth or these specific...

DAC/Amp Combo for MASSDROP X SENNHEISER HD 6XX HEADPHONES
Hi! I am seriously considering buying the HD 6xx's, and I'm very new to advanced audio. I was wondering what is the best DAC/Amp combo for these headphones around $100. Thanks in advance! Edit: Would FiiO E10K work?
