If you like the sound profile of the 660's then you should get Drop's HD6xx for about $200 usd, practically identical and you can use the leftover money to order Dekoni pads and pocket the rest.

I have the 660s, great headphones. I got it for $600 awhile back, this is a good deal. It's nice to see it drop in price; wish I held out.

And lol at the people trashing the price. Do you laugh at people buying cars or houses out of your price range too? Or bottles of alcohol in the thousands that you can drink in one night? There's the finer things in life, and Sennheiser high end headphones for audiophiles are one of them.

Anyone recommend any budget DAP/DAC for headphones like B & W PX?

I don't think so. If I didn't already own a HD650, I would take the drop 6XX over the 660s, its not the same but for half the price its pretty close.

$220 USD vs $515CDN. More than half price, but still, the 6xx is the better deal.

These are the same price on the Sennheiser CA website, so seems like Sennheiser wants to move some stock and this is an official price drop

I guess lots of time to enjoy these while working at home
RFD is not just about saving money, it's about the thrill of the hunt and getting the stuff I want without paying full price like Joe Shmoe did.
This applies to everyday items as well as high end items that I don't really need.

HD660S on Sennheiser website goes back to regular price at checkout though...

I had the Sennheiser HD700, then I upgraded to the HD800S, both driven by the WA6SE.

In my honest opinion, you have to consider the marginal diminishing returns for higher end headphones. At the end of the day, the audio quality was a bit better, but it was nothing mind blowing.

Well the HD660 and HD6xx aren't practically identical, the HD660 are closer to the 58x than the HD6xx. Also Sennheiser's are known for sounding worse with 3rd party pads. That said, I personally don't believe the HD660 are worth anywhere near what they cost when the HD6xx and HD58x exist.

Is importing through massdrop the only way to get a HD58x in Canada?

Yes.

Although sometimes drop sometimes sells items through Amazon.ca where currency conversion and brokerage have already been factored into the final cost, these haven’t been sold on Amazon.ca yet, but they might sometime soon.

I hear they're pretty different but how do you feel the HD700s stack up against the HD650 / HD6xx? Looking at purchasing them but heard that the treble on the HD700s make them pretty unbearable at times. Would be driving it from a Schiit stack.
