Phenomenal TRUTH cans!

I really don't need to say much in my review because I would be repeating what so many others have said. I'm the type of guy that prefers a flat and true sound. I enjoy hearing music exactly the way it was produced to sound like. My amp/DAC has a "Direct Mode" that when checked gives me the audio, mostly lossless FLAC or Monkey's Audio, in its purest form straight from the source. Any time I'm listening to music that mode is always enabled. I don't even use any EQ's at all. I'm addicted to these and also my pair of HD 650's. I bought lighter and shorter oxygen free cables for both pair. The longer and heavier stock cables are in the boxes safe from harm. If you want a good quality case for the 600 or 650 check out the Geekria EJB-0034-01 case. They fit perfectly in that great looking case. The only negative I have to add is that I regret not getting these sooner. I've known about them for many years. Many hours disappear quickly with these on my head but I suppose I'm trying to make up for the time I've lost not being able to enjoy them. 10 out of 10 stars!

Solved my problems of mixing audio in a suboptimal room. Comfortable too.

THE headphone for mixing

You can't go wrong having these headphones in your collection. They really open up mixes and gives the music space that closed back headphones just don't give you. Deciding between these and the 650's really comes down to your application. These headphones sound flat and are there for great to mix on. The 650's are more suited to any audiophile who wants to "enjoy" music or even a movie. They have a great surround sound effect and really bring you into the audio. If you A/B the two, you may find the 650 more appealing, but ironically this is why it's bad to mix on per say, the sound is colored to be appealing vs being true and boring. I went with this over the AKG's and DT808's because of their delicate high end that doesn't get sibilant like other headphones tend to. Also, the price to performance ratio buts so many brands to shame...Cough Beats Cough

Absolutely beautiful listening experience from these classic, reference-quality headphones! These are a step up from my 13-year-old HD580s, and I'm really spoiled now! Clean highs, just enough bass without any bloat, and that magical HD600 midrange! I've had this pair for nearly two weeks and have noticed some improvement in clarity during this break-in period. Looking forward to mixing home recordings! Comfort is first-rate as is typical of most Sennheiser models. THANK YOU MR. CHRIS LEONARD AND SWEETWATER! ORDERED IT ON A THURSDAY AND HAD IT BY SATURDAY!!!

Brian VanDeKeere has never failed suggesting best quality items to me, and THIS product simply makes me happy yet again. The CLARITY is so crystal, clear! Also VERY comfortable. I'm now using ProTools 11, and listening to playback with the HD 600 is truly pleasurable, facilitating my recording mixes. I looked at lower priced sets of headphones, but wasn't afraid to pay a bit extra if it made a difference. For this price range, you CAN'T beat these headphones!
