There are several bonuses to these headphones. First, due to how comfortable they are, I sometimes forget they're on my head - no exaggeration. They are extremely light and padded with just the right amount of softness on the headband and ear cups - though I would call them "pillows" rather than cups. I haven't walked into the next room and dragged along whatever they're connected to, but if these last until I'm a ripe old 80 then I fully expect this to happen. Second, many headphones have an what I consider an "over separated" stereo field, where it sounds like each element is in a little box and the sounds don't gel with one another. Not the case with the 600's. The sounds are distinct while the music blends together perfectly, a true revelation of what the mix engineer intended. Now that I'm on the topic of how they sound, it is best captured by the word "truthful." Where Sony 7506's hype the high frequencies, scoop the mids and confuse me with the lows, the 600's flatten the line in an honest way. As another reviewer mentioned, these can be used for mixing with very good results because they're like a good set of studio monitors should be: revealing and unflattering to the material. If the mix is already great (or getting better if you're doing it yourself), the 600's will let you know. They represent the best $400 I've spent on monitoring, and I have good studio monitors, but these tell me what I might be missing. Oh yeah - it is obvious to me that the open ear design (opposed to closed back on the majority of 'phones) contributes to a more open sound without strange resonances found in most closed back designs.
Been using these for home recording for the past 5 years -- they are absolutely outstanding. And if anybody says you can't mix with headphones, they may not have tried these (but you should probably use monitors to double-check your work). Anyway, just make sure you get the HD 600 -- not the HD 650. You won't regret purchasing these.
