Pros: First of all, i will mention I do not consider my self an expert in audiophile equipment (Im a PC guy). However, I can say with great certainty these headphones have the sharpest highs, most spot on mids, and warm lows. the only person who will not enjoy these headphones is a basshead. the bass is present and warm but not to the level of lets say, skullcandy skullcrushers. This is obviously no an issue for me but it is something to be noted. I have experienced other h...
Cons: I would noty consider the lows to be "BaseHead" worthy
Summary: Sound is neutral and very clear. Much wider sound stage than other (cheap) headphones I've owned. Not too hard to drive; bass is lacking from iPod output, but my Creative X-Fi Elite Pro does a fine job. They have a 300 ohm impedance which means they need high amounts of voltage with low amounts of current. These are open back headphones which means sound easily leaks IN and OUT.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Powerful, Professional Functions, Versatile
Summary: As a long-time owner and lover of Grados (most recently the SR-225s for about 2 years), I was skeptical that these would impress me. I was wrong. I haven't touched the Grados since I got these. The balance is incredible. No, they don't have the almost magical guitar sounds as the Grados, but everything else is improved. Bass goes much deeper and has more punch, vocals sound amazing, and brass instruments?! Wow.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Powerful, Versatile
Summary: These are great headphones - neutral, smooth and easy on the ears for nearly all types of music. I've got a few sets of cans including the Audio Technica A900, Shure E2C and Future Sonics Atrio M8's. The new Senn's are easily my favorite, particularly after breaking in for a few days. Typical use is with a Zune 30gb, powered by a Little Dot MK1 portable amplifier.
Summary: I could go on and on about these phones, the umpteen reviews you read on this site indicate what you already suspect, these are phenomenal quality for the price. They are comfortable, sound fantastic, and have stood up to abuse by me and my two teen age sons. I got them on a whim, wanted some nice headphones to listen to classical and jazz music without disturbing my family.
Summary: Before the HD 600 I was used to use an AKG K240, wich is not a great headphone, but is at least a regular one. After listening to the HD 600 I thought that the AKG was something like a consumer headphone. Maybe it's not the "best sounding" headphone, but it is so precise that a good recording sounds good, and a bad recording sounds bad. It does not make anything better than it is.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Professional Functions
Summary: I've been wanting to buy a HD600 for many years because it seemed to be the benchmark for a lot of professional studio engineers and reviewers, not to mention budding audiophiles. But I hesitated because it's pretty expensive in Australia (A$600-700) and wasn't sure whether I wanted an Open headphone. Until recently I only had Closed ones including Sennheiser HD280pro. But I bought Koss KSC75 and Alessandro MS-1 (a tweaked Grado SR80) open headphones and liked the sound.
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.
