Sennheiser HD600 Refurbished (official) for $119
These were my first ‘real audiophile’ headphones and an amazing deal for $119. With a balanced cable and amp they are very neutral and sound much richer/deeper than their image or reputation. My guess is that most sources of their release era (~20 years ago) had trouble driving them, leading to the bass-boosted 650s.
They bumped the HD-650s off the Innerfidelity (Tyll era) ‘Wall of Fame.’ Their primary limitation is of rounding off dynamics and transitions – becoming too smooth/slippery. However, this profile is easy on the ears.
Yea I ordered one at this price. I hadn’t listened to one in years and can’t complain at this offering price
great price…too bad I’m trying to reduce my headphone collection at the moment… seriously well within impulse buy territory right there!
Yes this was a total impulsive buy, as I am also trying to downsize my collection after my big spends
That didn’t last long. I was thinking about it and they are gone…
If Senn is marking refurb HD600 down to $119, what does that do to the market for used/refurb’d HD6xx ? I would think with the lower asking price to start with, they’d be $99 maybe?
They do still have HD650 refurbs in stock for $220
Yeah, but you can get brand new HD6XX’s for the same price.
I guess you have to live online for deals like this or you simply miss them.
I assume as they’re official Senn refurbs that they come with some warranty, so you can at least tell if you got a thoroughly checked out pair.
With all the >$2000 cans floating around this is simply a no thought purchase if you have balanced gear.
Sorry I missed it, as I’ve wanted to replace my sold 600s for years.
