I am going to chime in and also let people know, yes these are amazing. I own a pair. But don't think the price of the headphones is the complete investment. These are not going to work very well just plugged into the headphone jack of your phone. You need to invest in a minimum mid range amp and dac. Not even the entry level stuff. This is equivalent to buying a dslr camera body only without a lens. It's useless without the lens and the lens can cost more than than the body. So the amp/dac combo will most likely cost more than these headphones. If you understand and still want to purchase, welcome to the world of high quality audio. It's an expensive hobby. Last bit of advice, your old mp3 collection is not going to cut. To really hear these shine you need to re-download all your favorite music in lossless quality. It's a lot of work. But yes, so worth it in the end.

agreed, have a pair and tried them before an amp and it was decent, but an amp really brings out the 6xx's full potential

On my second pair in 10 years absolutely fantastic earphones and got me started in the audiophile hobby. Highly recommended and this is probably the cheapest you will ever find it brand new.

I use an old discontinued FiiO that works alright. Otherwise I've heard tgood things about https://www.audioquest.com/dacs/d...gonfly-red if you want something more portable.

Here's a $45 refurb budget option: https://audioengineusa.com/shop/f...one-amp-2/

I use this one at an office https://www.amazon.com/FiiO-E10K-...B00LP3AMC2 as it's USB and pretty portable. Granted it's not the top of the line, but it definitely gets the job done especially at the $76 price point.

I have the Hd6xx and don't notice a single difference with amp (Fiio E12) and when directly connected to the MBP without amp--apart from a warmer sound with the amp (the amp is warm-sounding).

It pairs perfectly with the bottlehead speedball crack. (Do your research). I have one unbuilt still if anyone is interested

Switched from a 558 and really like it so far, build quality is excellent. Soundstage could have been a little better.

Are you using high quality audio files? Or regular mp3s?
