My mother-in-law gave me a bunch of money a couple years ago for my birthday and Christmas.
I bought HD 600 earphones and I use them all the time for later evening TV and music.
I love those headphones.

chashint, I had the Senn HD-650s before I got the Oppo PM-1 and the PM-1 improves on every single aspect of sonics over the HD-650s! Yeah they are quite a bit more expensive, but they are one of the best headphones I've heard to date. Not to mention, they feel, and look incredible.

Kid Rock, or whoever, had better have no secrets, because they will all be revealed with the PM-1.

I am using the PM-1 to listen for differences between DACs and headphone amps. With them, I am able to hear differences easily that I was not able to before with other headphones.

Re: Which headphones do you currently use?

I am very open to the notion there are better headphones out there than the HD 600's.
Probably less open to the notion of buying them.

I should add that this is primarily for reviewing purposes, my current fun favorites are Beyerdynamic DT880 Premium 250 ohm.

Look I have a pair of Sennheisers and some Ultrasone 580s that's about as expensive as I can go on headphones for right now.

The Oppo PM-1s are the cleanest, most revealing phones I have ever placed on my head.
I looked at those briefly when shopping for some cans. Just a little rich for my taste at the time. Reviews seem to be universally positive. They definitely go above and beyond with the packaging on the PM-1's.

Re: Which headphones do you currently use?

I am using several pairs of cans for different purposes:
  • BeyerDynamic 880 Studio (20+ years old, 600 Ohms, open or semi-open): for listening to music, when I find time to do so. Very HQ phones, which I prefer for classical and jazz music
  • BeyerDynamic 770 (250 Ohms, closed): for listening, when I need hard stuff with heavy bass at near ear bleeding levels - which happens occassionally
  • Stax SR40 (with simple SRD-4 adaptor, driven by a separate T-amp): just close-by at one of my stereo set-ups. Quite relaxing sound, very clear, but a bit light on bass
  • Koss PortaPro (15 years old, open): while travelling. I haven't found anything better in such a small form factor at a price tag anywhere that affordable
  • Sony MDR-ZX600 (closed): mainly for portable use while filming or travelling, but simply less resolution, than even the lowly Koss Porta Pro and not anywhere comparable to the rest of the bunch.

My dearest headphones are clearly the DT-880 Studios, but the 770 is very remarkable, given its low price.
