Picked up an HD580 Jubilee on eBay. First impression: HD600 with a slightly better look. May 9, 2018

        Carbon frames are sexy. I envy you!

        @ultrabike $510. A lot for HD600s! @Cspirou I've heard things about driver matching and/or slightly better materials. Can't say listening makes any such advantage obvious, though.

      Hit the Schiitr last weekend! IMO: Asgard2 is A+ with planars, maybe > Jotunheim. Loved Mjolnr2/Gungnir Multibit; surprised it didn't pale vs Rag/Yggdrasil.

      Picked up an AKG Sextett (LP) out of curiosity. Not bad for 70s cans! Familiar sound; K240M were my first decent headphones.

        Big power wakes them up. Pretty fun and capable headphones when well driven.

      Thinking about getting an M1060. Would be my first planars.

        Yeah, there are a lot of people raving about the M1060 here in the 1060 thread. Especially after they have released version 2 with improvements made based on feedback. Either way there will be more opinions and reviews soon as Marv has ordered a pair for the lending library. Maybe wait a bit and see what consensus forms.

        @Ishcabible can probably give you a great rundown, his review is very expansive on what to expect.

        Stock they are not very good cans(though the QC seems to be improving at least), I mirror Ischa's experience, I think the driver has potential and I like where I've gotten my pair to. However a used HE-500 is a compelling competitor. Though the M1060 is much more comfortable and much easier to drive.

      Comparing HD 6XX to my trusty HD 600 (mostly on Bifrost Multibit -> Valhalla 2). HD 600 highs are hard to give up, but maybe I'll warm up to HD 6XX...

        I had the same conundrum once.Try a simple experiment. Pull off the pads from the HD650, then remove the foam ovals, and replace the pads. Have a listen and if you find the changes interesting have a good look at the HD650 mod compendium thread.

        You'll never give up the HD600 highs. NEVER! Nor will I.

        There are HD650/6XX people and there are HD600 people and ... I don't know what you call those other people. :)

        ^^^ I would have said that if @Claritas didn't. The Bifrost Multibit might have an upgrade option this year, and the HD600s are fine headphones...

        @zonto I like this setup a lot. My biggest complaint is that I could still stand a wider soundstage. But mostly I've just been listening to it for almost a year now and I'm curious whether I've settled in too soon. I'm wondering if I might like HD650s more, whether to explore planars, or if the move up to Gungnir Multibit is worth the massive jump in price.
