I have not owned anything more expensive than the AKG 371. No experience with any of the HD 6xx models....So maybe 600 is a good start. Thanks!
Or the HD 6XX from Drop, pretty much an HD 650 with shorter cable and different color for $220. HD 6XX
Drop also has the HD 58X Jubilee for $170, another nice headphone if you want to try Senn's HD 6xx line. Link

Unfortunately, I don't see it anymore. Seems like a very short duration deal.
: (
Tis there now, 15% coupon savings, & delivery looks like 2 days, & free returns, if in need seems to be a pretty good deal.

Would also seem that some of SMSL items also have a 15% discount coupon

I think you'd indeed be better off with the HD600 rather than HD660s. I'm inclined to recommend you the HD560s though as an alternative though because it has better soundstage - it has angled drivers. I would say it's also a great frequency response which needs only a little EQ, also a low distortion headphone, some reports of good/excellent & poor channel matching (so that's variable), but it's less expensive than the HD600 too. Here's the HD560s owners thread for detail:
I have both the HD600 & HD560s amoungst other headphones, and the HD560s is my favourite headphone along with K702 (both EQ'd using Oratory's data).
I have an HE-560 v.4 into Amir for review

That's cool, but I was talking about the HD560s (Sennheiser)....but good that you're sending in a headphone for review to Amir, you're doing your bit!

I talked to a Sweetwater sales rep and got a price for a JBL 708P in the low 1700 range, which is a better price than everywhere else. If they carry what you want, it's worth contacting them.

HiFiMan HE6se V2 is $549 at Adorama - LINK
Is this the lowest price so far?
I think so, got mine for 600 o.o

It's kind of strange though, I think all those units from adorama are just basically open box or refurbs idk with new outer shells. Cause the adorama edition is blueish. I've seen some people purchase it and it will take a dump really quick, but it is covered under warranty. I've had mine for a year now with no issues.

Next thing to consider is unless you got a real high current amp, I would assume that's what it is, the headphones dont sound that amazing. But with a large reserve of current they are amazing to say the least.

For folks who don't buy music (like, instruments, not hifi) gear much, generally if you call them you can get up to a 15% discount pretty easily. This goes for Sweetwater, Guitar Center / Musician's Friend, Zzounds etc. Not sure about Sam Ash. It's not perfectly reliable and doesn't apply to sale items blah blah but it's how that industry niche tends to operate, to try to build customer loyalty with your 'sales rep'. So if you're looking for a music interface, PA power amp etc bargain and don't mind speaking to a human, it's a viable angle.
