The most beloved headphones in Sennheiser's history are probably the HD600 and HD650, and to many, they sound more balanced than the much more expensive flagship HD800 series, and the HD800 series has had its share of criticism--particularly about its tendency to be excessively bright in the upper-mids, causing fatigue to the listeners.
The common criticisms of the HD600 and HD650 is that they are a bit lacking in the gravitas of the sub-bass region, especially compared to modern headphones with sonic signatures similar to the Harmon Target Response Curve. The other criticism is the slightly "veiled" treble (which I don't necessarily agree with. I feel that it actually makes them sound more pleasing and less grating).
So the question is, are there any plans to update the HD6XX series to modern standards in terms of sonic signature? Maybe a new model that closely matches the Harmon Target Response Curve?
