There are enough polls for the HD6XX's. This poll is intended for high end headphones ($1,000+).
Please, do not add or vote for headphones that do not fit the original criteria.
AKA: It's between LCD-2/X's, HD800S's and K812's.
If this is a poll for high end headphones, then the Sennheiser HD600, HD650 (and by implication HD6XX) certainly belong here. In Stereophile's 2017 Recommended Components list, both the HD600 (which I know you own/owned) and HD650 share a Class A rating with the HD800, Audeze LCD-X, and Audeze LCD-4 (the AKG K812s do not appear on the list).
In your mind, I would certainly agree. However, have you or have you not noticed that virtually every single headphone poll includes 600/650/6XX's? Again, there are more than enough polls for those headphones. What if you already owned one? What if you already own/owned all three? Most people are only on Massdrop specifically just for the 600/650/6XX drop. Do you understand that?
Everyone knows that everyone and their mom wants $300 headphones for $200. We get it.
I did not add them for a reason. I did not add the HD800's because they are shit. I did not add the Tesla's because I think they are shit, also. I did not add the LCD-4's because they don't compare, price wise, to what I originally added. The HE6's were supposed to be the 'bargin' option.
K812's on their website: $1,500 (for the same reason why tube amps exist, this is not a reference poll)
LCD-2's on their website: $1,000 (for mini comparison between the 2 cheapest LCD headphones)
LCD-X's on their website: $1,700 (planar-dynamic's vs HD800S's, really)
HD800S's on their website: $1,700 (I want this to drop badly(like many others))
HE6's on their website: overpriced (cheap planar option is cheap)
Massdrop won't work with Amazon. They will work with the manufactures, aka MSRP pricing.
