Yes. The 660S also sounds different than the older 6 series.

I just grabbed a pair of HD 58X from drop and had to pay about $40 in duties.dbdudley wrote: ↑Agree with the 6XX recommendations, but if I recall, I had to pay duty on mine years back. Is this still an issue? Or am I misremembering? Not saying it's not a good deal (bought them myself), but it's a consideration for the cost.

It is. I got the HD6XX a few weeks ago from Drop and paid DHL $50 for duty and taxes. I was annoyed at the time but the HD6XX are fantastic.

Well now I don't feel as bad, I thought I was just unlucky. I got some Holy Pandas switches coming from Drop so I will be expecting the fees this time.

Over 3k is a crazy amount to spend on a headphone amp. I run my Beyerdynamic T1 with Liquid Carbon X + SDAC and I see no reason to spend anything over that for a headphone amp. I rather spend the money on more headphones.

I don’t like the HD820, might be a sour grapes thing, but I think the HD800s sounds better (based on my limited time with both). If you are getting either of these I would say skip the amp and get something that has measured well and that you like to listen to.
I’d sort of agree with this , the HD650 for me (which is what I own) is great with certain types of music and great with detail, but somehow I listen to it less often than I do pretty much everything else, maybe because I have had it so long the novelty sort of wore off or maybe I just have better headphones now lol. Even the HE4XX that I paid 1/5 the price for I enjoy so much more.

I see the local headphone store has the Stellia at $5200 and Utopia at $6500 with the Arche. Think there could be more discounts?kimwoobingsu wrote: ↑ I don’t like the HD820, might be a sour grapes thing, but I think the HD800s sounds better (based on my limited time with both).

I really have started to like the Focal sound, and I would maybe buy a Utopia or Stellia if I was going to drop that kind of money on one headphone. The mark ups on these are high and they will often discount them by $1000 or you might even be able to bundle with their amp for a little bit more.
