Just as a FYI, a coworker got in his HD6XX recently and let me listen to it for the past 2 days on my system. Really is an extremely smooth and pleasant listening headphone, yet with insane amount of detail for such smooth sound along with a beautiful low end both in extension and presence. Yes it has a certain 'veil' to the sound compared to the very live sound of my TH-X00 PHs and is not as comfortable either, but all in all, I am really impressed with it.
My setup chain is as follows: laptop USB -> Gustard X20U DAC -> Schiit Loki EQ (bypassed for HD6XX and TH-X00PH use) -> modded Gustard H10 amp with full compliment of Burson V6 Classic opamps replacing the stock ones. The sound from that HD6XX on my system has me really wanting to try out the HD660S as it apears to mostly alleviate my minor gripes with the HD6XX from what I've read.
