Both links go to the red version, how do they compare to the 6xx? They ship much sooner.

I updated the links. Thanks.

I'm curious to that as well, but I'll find out soon as I purchased both... Well in December "soon"​

If you mean Sennheiser 650, they are sounds way different. I own both, and like them, but for easy listening i prefer AKG, but this is for original 650 not 6xx massdrop. They may sound slightly differ.

Just out of curiosity, I own a pair of Sony MDR-V6's and their primary use is for gaming. I don't listen to music or watch movies through them 95% of the time. How much would I be gaining with upgrading to something like these? Would my money be better off going toward something else?

Read the thread. Widespread reports of low-quality materials and construction.

I have no idea about the quality on these, but I have a pair of modded AKG Q701, easily my favorite headphone to date.

I used to own a pair of AKG headphones. They sound good but they looks so ridiculous on your head. These are meant to be worn inside away from other human beings. You will get strange looks like: "What is he wearing on his head, was that made in the 1970s?"

Well I was asking because both Massdrops are currently ongoing. It is my understanding that the 650 and 6xx are pretty much the same though I've done very little these to this point.

They're 1:1 rebranded 650s.

They're pretty much slightly tweaked Q701's. If you did the bass mod you're in a good spot. The construction is a bit weaker on the 7xx as well.

The 7xx will tire you out quicker as they're overly bright. They are more analytical than fun. They are also much much pickier when it comes to amplification even though they have much lower impedance.

That was pretty much the conclusion that most came up with: the bass port mod and the new pads were all the difference.

With those two changes, I've loved mine. I don't think they're analytical anymore. In fact, it took some time for me to get used to the more bass-filled sound. I almost felt like I was going to reverse the bass mod, it was quite a change to the sound signature. Super wide sound stage is still there, so no worries on that.

Sucks that the construction isn't as nice, though I can say that the only thing that bugs me about mine is that the little bungee things don't really do anything on mine anymore. Mine were made in Austria, FWIW.

The construction quality between both is different.
