    Butcher, do you buy all these cans you post? I kinda do.

    Saw these and very tempted .... a Producer friend of my daughter's uses them for rough mixing and claims they are the most accurate cans he's ever used, with zero fatigue.

    Got in on that drop during the last iteration.
    Won't ship until July though, so no comments/reviews until then.

    I only listen to headphones or ear buds when traveling with wife driving and her listening to pop. Or when I am at the dog park or doing something outdoors. Inside I listen to speakers in my systems. I have the Sennheiser HD558 and Polk ultafocus 8000. Those are the most expensive cans I own. And lots of cheap ones . Peace. D

    Cans are fun although I don't need em anymore since I ditched the ball and chain. Cans keep me calm and mostly keep me from chewing my restraints.

    Yes. They're pretty spectacular. You will benefit from a headphone amp that is designed to drive them properly. I have a Massdrop Objective 02 headphone amp and it does the job. However, the Schiit Valhalla Triode OTL Headphone Amp AND Preamp is said to be the perfect compliment to the HD6XX.

    Mine are in a box, in a box, in a storage unit right now. Won't see them again for another 5 months... :(

    I use these with my laptop and never felt they needed an amp. Out of my iPhone...absolutely need the amp.

    Topping A30 worth a look.

    The O2+SDAC they also have is not crufty at all.
    I have them both in my work office & I'm happy

    I've been saying I'm going to buy a pair for about the last 5 years.... its still yet to happen. Maybe I should try to find an amp first.. see who that approach works. One day.....

    I like my Little Dot 1+. I got it for $120 plus $25 for some GE JAN5654w tubes. I have been using it 5 days of the week for around 5-6 hours a day for the last two years or so, not one single problem.
