Excerpt: Listening to classical music and opera recordings,the Sennheiser HD 600 exhibit superb dynamic range,lack of IM and harmonic distortion,even at high volume levels.Great mid range and realistic string sound.Exceptional value.Light and comfortable.
Excerpt: At this price there's no other headphone that can match the Hd600's. They are about as neutral as you can get in this price range. Bass is tight but not boomy. The mids are airy and open. They are quite comfortable too.
Summary: These are very good headphones for the money, quite balanced sounding. Yes there are some headphones which can do this and that better technically, but somehow not as balanced overall and not as natural in the midrange.
Summary: Excellent sound, comfortable. The only downside is a cable that needs to be replaced every few years. My first HD600 I got about 10 years ago, and they have performed flawlessly. This is a second pair for work.
Pros: Great sound.
Cons: Mediocre cable (just needs replacing every few years for about $20).
Excerpt: I'm a mixing and recording engineer, and record producer.I've used these headphones for mixing and listening. I also know of mastering engineers that use them for mastering.What's great about them: - Comfortable to wear for extended periods of time Their open back design along with the design of the...
Pros: Clear Sound, Comfortable For Long Use, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Trust Worthy Sound, Versatile
Excerpt: This is my second pair of HD600s they are, by far the most accurate, comfortable headphones you will ever find. These phones are honest, they will quickly point out the shortcomings of your recordings.
Pros: Accurate, Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Hinest, Honest
Summary: I'm using these for mixing (still use my actual studio monitors, just less) and they're a very flat response headphone. Too flat for casual listening, which is why I held on to my old headphones that color music a bit too much for mixing but sound better listening to rock music (more present bass).
Pros: Sound quality Light weight Good fit Price (online/sale) Cord length
Excerpt: I was looking for a Hi Quality set of head phones to listen to music. I am an audiophile but I also play acoustic guitar. I wanted a set of phones that would be accurate and musical. The HD600's are both. I also own a pair of HD 280 pro and they both have the Sennheiser sound.
Summary: I was never an audiophile, I just knew if I didn't get these on sale while seeking a quality upgrade, I would always wonder. Now I won't go back. I ordered from the Newegg marketplace and had no issues whatsoever.
Pros: Incredible sound. Everyone I've shown them to has been blown away.
Cons: You MUST have an amp for these. I was able to use them with the volume@100% on my phone, but it wasn't desirable. I knew this going in, so not really a con, just a drawback. (I do have an amp) If you don't have an amp you might want to check out HD598 or Audio-Technica ath-m50x
