Scan Pro Audio Recommended - The HD600 are well known as being slightly more "flat" response than thier HD650 counterpart, which makes them well suited to critical listening and studio mix work.
These headphones are engineered for the true audiophile. Thanks to an open circumaural design, computer optimized magnets and aluminum voice coils, you won't find cleaner, crisper stereo sound anywhere.
The HD 600 Avantgarde are audiophile-quality, open dynamic hi-fi/professional stereo headphones. The advanced diaphragm design eliminates standing waves in the diaphragm material. The HD 600 can be connected directly to hi-fi systems of the highest quality, in particular DAT, DVD, MD and CD players. These headphones are an ideal choice for the professional recording engineer recording classical music.
"The HD600s sound wide, open, spacious, and very extended at both frequency extremes. Being open-backed, there is a fair amount of high-frequency spill from these headphones, which makes them less than ideal in the studio when recording vocal overdubs, for instance. However, in general high-quality and reference monitoring applications this spill will be of less concern than the influence of external sound passing through to the listener. You really do need to use these headphones in a quiet environment -- trying to assess sound quality while the same signal is blaring over loudspeakers is completely pointless!
I found the bass end was tight, tuneful and accurate, the mid-range clear, neutral and detailed, and the high end open and 'airy' -- the last being a particular strength of open-backed designs, of course. Dynamic and punchy on rock and pop music, these headphones really excelled on classical music, with immense detail and resolution, and a silky smooth string quality.
The HD600s were comfortable to wear for long periods without being physically or sonically fatiguing, and I actually forgot I was wearing them on several occasions... until I tripped over the cable!.... If you are looking for a headphone capable of reference-quality monitoring and the open-backed characteristics are acceptable to you, then you will struggle to find anything better than the HD600." - Hugh Robjohns - Sound On Sound
