Everything sounded veiled, and the high frequencies sounded like they were very veiled.

I can only add that the best way to hear the difference is to listen to the classical music or to jazz, where natural sound is paramount.

Unfortunately very few recordings, especially mainstream commercial ones, have really good sound quality.

This is the best dynamic headphone in the world, and is rivalved only by the Grado RS-1 headphone. Many studio engineers and audiophile's use these as their REFERENCE headphone...they are a steal for such a high quality headphone. The Grado RS-1 [costs more], and is definately less comfortable than the Sennheisers. These headphones have an extremely detailed, open, airy sound, that nears electrostatic sound. They are also unique in that they suit all types of music very well, they have great punch for rock music, but can perform clasical pieces with all the fullness and detail they were designed.
It should be noted these headphone have an impedance of 300 ohms. Most headphone are 16-32 ohms. What this means is to get the full potential out of them you will need some type of amplifier. Headphone.com offers a couple inexpensive sollutions to this problem, as does audioadvisor.com. Althought they are not true audiophile components, they will greatly enhance your experience with these headphones. If you are planning on travelling with them, you can almost bet you won't be content with their sound when powered only by a portable CD player. I use a Audio Valve RKV Mark II Headphone Amplifier at home, and the headphone.com Airhead on the road. Buy these headphones if you are looking for true audiophile sound, or just the best dynamic headphone, but be aware of their limitations without am amplifier.

Verified Purchase
How can four hundred dollar headphones be a good value?
Consider it this way: Let's call a CD 10 dollars. Let's say you get a certain amount of pleasure from a new CD: new sounds, new music, a new experience to last you a few weeks before it gradually inches its way into the dusty corners of your collection.
Now, let's say you have about 100 CDs.
These headphones are now worth about ... because you have never heard any of those CDs before. These are headphones that revolutionize all the music YOU ALREADY OWN!
But be warned: remember how when CDs first came out there were all those pretentious warnings about how the superior quality of the recording may expose flaws in the master that you could never make out before? I always thought there might be some audiophile somewhere who could hear some "flaw".
But with these headphones you can hear a good studio from a cheap one. I can hear the buzz of unshielded electronics in the second rate studio on some indy cds. Some of my beautiful old classical music suddenly sounds muffled and dead, flattened by an unflattering production job that my speakers could not convey.
The clarity is unreal. Guitar strings are made of gold and they ring clear as crystal; layers of techno pile atop each other in multicolor, multidimensional textures that knock you breathless; the exotic reverberant groan of a cello solo that you have heard a thousand times will bring tears to your cheeks.
And all of this at a fraction of the volume you might play music on your speakers with: these headphones are brilliant and clear and perfect at low volumes. Given their open air construction these things may well preserve your hearing for an additional decade.
I cannot recommend these highly enough.

I have been building and listening to audiophile sound systems for more than 20 years. Having listened through Sennheiser HD580s for several years and finding them excellent, I feel comfortable saying that the HD600s are a very significant improvement in clarity and overall sound quality. The main differences between the HD580 and HD600 appear to be in better reasonance control throughout the entire mechanical system and evolutionary driver improvements. The HD600s do indeed approach perfection. Their sound quality is not easily surpassed by $10,000 loudspeakers.

However, several caveats are in order. Like loudspeakers, these headphones do require several days of playing time to break in and open up, particularly in the lower frequencies. The reason for this is simple physics: when new the suspensions are stiff and need some work to loosen up and allow larger, low frequency excursions to happen more easily. The may sound a little cool at first, but will warm up after many hours of playing time. They will also sound clearer. When breaking them in, don't play them louder than you would normally listen.

Second, these headphones are extremely revealing of the electronics feeding them. An audiophile-quality headphone amplifier, such as those made by headphone.com, is necessary to get the best sound of of them. The source electronics are also clearly audible. It would be appropriate to use these with multi-thousand dollar D/A converters or CD/SACD/DVD/vinyl rigs. Used with cheap or inferior source electronics, the sound will be severely limited. It's a bit like putting ketchup on a $20 steak.

Third, these headphones are extremely revealing of the quality of recordings.

I just bought the Sennheiser HD600's and was able to compare it directly with the Sennheiser HD580's and an old pair of Sony MDR-V6's.
One of the best CDs to use in listening is the Buena Vista Social Club CD. Ry Cooder, et al. did an excellent job miking and mastering, capturing the natural sounds of voices and instruments.
The Sennheiser HD580s were rated as a "B" component by Stereophile Magazine, and the HD600s receive their top "A" rating. The HD580s (discontinued) sounded wonderful -- very spacious and detailed; however, the higher frequencies seemed a bit too high, making cymbals sound a bit harsh. Since the HD580s use basically the same components as the HD600s, I was expecting the two headphones to sound very similar. But when I put on the HD600s, I was floored. The headphones seemed to disappear and I was listening to the instruments directly. The HD600s had all of the spacial qualities of the HD580, but the sound was warmer, closer, and more realistic. For example, the piano on Track 4: Pueblo Nuevo sounded pretty darned good on the HD580s, but it seemed like I was really in the same room as Ruben Gonzales when I listened with the HD600s. The HD600's presentation of the piano timber was spot on. Track 12: Murmullo was incredible -- you can hear every detail, every nuance, every whisper, of Ibrahim Ferrer's voice. Once in a great moon, a new product will bring a smile to my face...the HD600s did that.
After listening to the Sennheisers, I wanted to throw away the Sonys. You will also be tempted to throw out all of your CDs that aren't recorded and mastered well, because you'll hear all of the imperfections. If you don't have enough money for the HD600s, then do a little overtime to earn the bucks...the delayed gratification will be worth it, guaranteed.
