Very solid headphone for the price, and about $15 cheaper than the last posting. Not the all-time low with cashback stacks, but more than good in the current market.
A smidge brighter than what you might typically expect from a 500 or 600 series Sennheiser, but also has good bass extension for an open-back dynamic driver headphone.
Pretty well reviewed at this point, and a consideration alongside the HIFIMAN HE-X4 given the current price of everything else you'd typically recommend:
- HIFIMAN HE400 SE - $259
- Sennheiser HD 6XX - $380 (price hike + GST now added)
- AKG K612 Pro - $250-$280 (Amazon UK stock depleted, though around $230ish imported from Thomann in Europe/UK)
If you're getting these for an EDM-focused playlist, gaming and movies, I'd say this is a good option, but the K612 would probably be the better all-rounder there, though perhaps at the slight expense of timbre. If you note the impedance curves, both the K612 and this will perform a little better out of well-designed amplification with the K612 gaining upper treble (air) performance, and the Sennheiser getting cleaner in the mid-bass, but don't expect Sennheiser 600 series scaling from either.
Plenty of impressions and reviews in the previous deal threads.
