Summary: These headphones really are underrated. For some reason, they have relegated to a "stepchild" position for most people ever since the HD650s came out. Don't think that just because the HD650 is a higher model number than HD600 that the HD650 must be better.
Pros: --Accurate--not tipped on the high or low end--just right --I find them very comfortable--the most comfortable cans I've used --Sound better than the HD650s but cost $100 less --Most parts can easily be replaced, which means your investment will last longer --The cable is fully detachable from th...
Cons: --The materials feel just a tad cheap, but the cans are not delicate --They are definitely open cans, so everyone around you can hear your music almost as well as you can --The stock cable is not good; get a Sennheiser replacement cable for the HD650s (they fit these and sound better than the sto...
Conclusion: With the extensive description on your site, I did not feel the need to do more research which I tend to overdue. I had a terrible buying experience a few times and vowed to never go back. I called the Help Center that Sonic offers to have a few questions answered about these headphones.
Summary: Let me just say that these head-phones can handle it all! I listen to alot of music. Try Steve Khan-Public Access. This is my TEST CD! People that listen on these head-phones, well, pretty much have made the right choice. I have a McIntosh MHT200, it works very well with these head-phones.
Pros: Looks and Sound.
Cons: Had to replace the cord that connects to the amp and the bottom of the speakers. The replacements are better. Sorry to say, do not know the brand. GREG
Great Musical sound, outstanding comfort and build.

Summary: The HD600, HD650 and Q701 are in the same class of higher end sound. The rest of my headphones fall below. The next class is HD595 and ATM-500. I will say my QC15 are fantastic noise cancelling but with major quality issues of one side quiting out.
Pros: Out of all the headphones I have, I find the HD600 the most enjoyable. The HD650 are at times better but overall I enjoy the HD600 the most., I have SR-60, SR-80, HD555, HD595, HD600, HD650, AKG Q701, ATM-50, Bose QC15 and some various earbuds.
Cons: There is always better, but these are great headphones.
Precisely clear and detailed headphones with an excellent look!

Summary: I cannot believe I am the first person to write a review for these amazing headphones here on Crutchfield. These headphones replaced my Shure SRH-840 as my primary headphones. Build Quality, Appearance and Comfort: If you're like me and cosmetics have some value, then these headphones will please...
Pros: Extremely detailed clarity across the spectrum, neutral tone and no over-exaggeration in the sound stage. Very comfortable, sturdy, and lightweight. They look awesome and are definitely an eye catcher. Considering the cost of some other headphones, these are an absolute steal. Perfect, in my humb...
Cons: None. Except that you may dislike some recording quality of your music, not a fault of the headphone.....
Summary: Once your've owned these headphones for a few weeks you will see them for what they are, the best value for money headphones on the market for audio purists.
Pros: Their sweet open air sound is so sweat and smooth. Do yourself a favour and connect them to a quality headphone amp to get the most out of them. Live music is full of soul and character.
Cons: Their price initially seems expensive until you seriously sample a range of headphones both cheaper and more expensive, once your've done this their price then seems like a bargain. A quality headphone amp is required to get the best out of them
Summary: One of my greatest purchases ever!!! These really make me fall in love with the music I listen to. Normally I just plug them straight into my laptop headphone jack and they still sound great. They sound better and better every day and make everything else I listen to sound empty by comparison.
Summary: I bought these based on the reviews here, and paired them with a X-Can headphone amp, an Arcam CD-23 players, and McCormick pre-amp, pure silver sound interconnects. Initially, I was really disappointed. The sound was muffled.
Summary: I have owned these headphones for probably two years. They are very well likely my most prized possession and this review could be summarized in one word- perfect, but I won't write that, because they're not.
