    I just want to thank you for all your contents I studied music technology for 3 years, never really learned about headphones to the extend you’ve taught me! Even just the basics! I used to live in the U.K. (now Spain) I’ve had lots of different makes of headphones in the past, (beats,house of Marley’s, skullcandys) and I took your advice and spent that little bit more money on some WH-CH710N’s and so far they’ve been great! So thank you! I’m tempted to buy some kz pros too for taking with me on walks and stuff, just want to thank you for all your contents! Keep it up!

    I had a pair of the first koss headset, in my country, back then, they were less than 40$ and they also came with a life warranty. I remember tons of teens smashing them to pieces, breaking them and getting new pairs for free. I've always thought that's why they were so cheaply made. 😅

    It doesn't matter what device I am watching your videos on, the headphones with the V frequency chart always sound more open and wide and 3D than the HD600 to my ears.

      That's an effect of the V shape and why so many people like it. Having the bass and treble up front with the mids recessed gives a bit of a large room feel. But once you get used to more flat responses, than the V-shape starts to sound closed in and missing stuff

    I had to go check Toxic for that sound. Couldn't hear it on my 6XXs, but I switched over to my old 598's and damn, there it is. I've been frustrated before that the 6XX has such severe top end roll off but this is the first time I've missed a sound on it. Now that I know where it is, I can pull it out if I really listen for it on the 6XX but wow...

      @Algis-kun the 6XX isn't a crappy headphone though. Objectively it's better than the 598 and is phenomenal at vocals and midrange (6XX is a Sennheiser HD650), but it's a completely different tuning than the 598 with focus on almost a perfect midrange rather than treble and bass
