Im going to go against the grain and say I absolutely hated these. Popped them on fresh from amazon and the mystical Sennheiser veil was in full effect making everything sound like it was coming from the other side of a cardboard wall. Bought the HD6XX instead and the difference was night and day obviously enough being in different price ranges but still. I recently got the HD58X and being the step down from the 6XX sounded every bit just as good so if you have the money and Drop ships to your area I'd consider that instead.

Just my two cents.

Thanks, was wondering about this vs HD58X. On Cyber Monday, it's going back to $135 on Drop.

Ah yeah, I snagged it the last time it was that price. I'd definitely go that way. The build isn't as nice as the 6XX but the sound is definitely there.

Aren't these suppose to be similar but newer versions of the hd 598 se? I love mine, it's perfect for gaming and no significant veil to me. Easy to drive without an amp/dac.

I had the hd 650 before and that sounded warm and had veil. Although I only had the cheap schiit stack so maybe the ampdac was not sufficient to drive it.

From what I understand it is indeed just a rebrand of the hd598 with some cosmetic changes or something of that nature. Thats why I was so blown away when I got them as Ive read everyone say the hd598 are perfect for gaming.

Yeah, ears are weird man. We all have these different nuances that we hear or dont hear and so on. Thats why headphone shopping is so hellish in the first place. Just thought Id chime in this time around since id tried all of the units in comparison.

Wonder if you got a bad copy. Definitely much more open. I wouldn't necessarily call them airy and bloated, but definitely not veil to my ears. The HD 650 were veiled. Even my Denon D2000 sounds slightly more veiled compared to these (and I do not perceive those to be veiled).

I have been contemplating getting the HD 600 though, just curious to see how they sound - but then I would be stuck in having to buy another AMP/DAC again because I think are also not easy to drive

These typically require some breaking-in.
