Natural sound -- Love them -- best sound stage I've experienced

Even tho they are open back, you have to be right next to them to hear anything. Ears don't hurt, or sweat, and doesn't sound like your in a tank. Decided noise cancellation was only nice on an airplane, and I preferred wired, donl't have to turn on or charge. If you have eyeglasses or hearing aides...

Just got my Sennheiser hd6xx in today and I have to say I love them for sure. My Sennheiser fill one part of my life than my dt990s for the other. Talk about enjoying the different sound signatures


I also have the schiit modi + magni heresy with sennheiser hd6XX and its the perfect gateway into the audio world....also nice setup, I'm not really a fan of the minimalist setups, I think they're sort of soulless tbh

I just got that same Schiit stack with a pair of Sennheiser HD6XX phones, and I fall asleep to them every night. Gratz! Im about to redo my entire soundbar setup to reproduce that sound via movies. Well done!

Fiio K5 Pro is probably the worst dac/amp I've purchased can hardly power my Sennheiser HD6XX


Surprisingly, I’ve been happy with my Sennheiser HD6XX lol

Open back headphones! I know they are not speakers, but they sound like one! Sennheiser hd6xx is my next pair


Topping DX3 pro, Edifier S2000 MK3, and if you want headphones as well, Sennheiser HD6XX.

Sennheiser HD 6XX

The Sennheiser HD 6XX are open-back wired headphones. They're a collaboration between Massdrop and Sennheiser, and can only be purchased on the Drop website. They have a neutral, balanced sound profile that's suitable for listening to lots of different audio content, and their open, spacious soundstage can help create a more immersive listening experience

I have the Sennheiser HD6XX and I really like it for metal. Great for both badly recorded music and good recorded music. I also really like the Grado sr80e. There is just something with them together with metal that just shines
