I'm still looking for headphones that perfectly meet the requirements mentioned above for recording. Nevertheless, these are excellent headphones for listening, and even for my purposes to a large degree. In this price range, the HD600s are the best I'm aware of.

Very good stereo imaging for headphones. Great frequency and dynamic range, not harsh or fatiguing, probably because they start to roll off a little somewhere around 8kHz. They're great for listening to commercial recordings and, to some extent, mixes in progress. But, unless mine are defective, you need to be aware that there may be more ultra high-end energy present in the source than can be heard with the HD600s. I do find them great for tracking instruments on a DI in the control room.

Straight cable, nicely padded all round, and the 1/4" adapter pulls off (to access the 1/8" plug) instead of unscrewing, which has saved me from damaging the cable by stepping on it about fifty times. They cup the ears pretty snugly, which is necessary for good bass response. Still, they're comfortable for me.


I haven't heard any other headphones as good, but I've compared only one other make in this price range. What do I know about value? They were worth every penny to me.

Manufacturer Support
No experience. I've had mine for a couple read more of years without any problems, despite pretty heavy and careless usage. I roll my chair over the cable all the time.

The Wow Factor
As impressive as the HD600s are, I still prefer, and mostly use, monitors. I simply needed a good pair of reference headphones for checking details in mixes and when I'm recording in the same space as the musicians.
