Compared to the 6xx I find they get hot on my ears, they sound a little bit harsh in some of the mid range, they don’t sound as musical and relaxed and they are not as comfortable.
But, I like the bass and I love how dark they sound. Quiet bits are deathly silent, it’s a cool affect.

I haven’t listened to the 6xx since I got the 2c, that’s partly lack of time and partly worrying I will like the 6xx more and then regret getting the 2c lol.


 


Well that's rather disappointing! I tried the most recent LCD2 and thought they were "good" and I *love* the LCD3 but just don't want to spend that much money on cans so I thought maybe the LCDC2 would be my holy grail for an open-backed over-ear set to compliment my Final Audio Sonorous VI's. I am looking for a warmer, lusher sound.


 


The Mr Speakers Aeon Flow are also on my list - maybe they would be a better option? Also considering the various HiFi Man options, but I am so leery of their build quality and longevity...



So, I’ve had a chance to do some back to back comparisons between the 6xx and the 2c.
In summary, I’m now 100% in love with the 2c. I realised I should swivel the cups a little and the pressure on my jaw is completely removed, they are now very comfortable.
I love the sound compared to the 6xx, the bass and ‘moodiness’ is sooo nice. Not sure exactly how to describe it, but I’m addicted. I changed the driver tubes on my amp and I feel it’s become just a little more musical as well.
I’m a total fan now!

I liked the Audeze products I've tried from a sound quality perspective, but comfort is a real concern and I see it's reflected in the latest reviews as well. I don't understand how, given the attention to detail regarding most things, they could have ignored all the feedback on comfort I have seen over the years, especially when you compare to almost every other brand.

 

In that price range, there are headphones that sound 99.9% as good, but are 30% more comfortable. You can't even buy alternative pads..

I do my listening at night lying down on a bed, with pillows behind my back and supporting my head. This helps with the comfort of these, especially as they are on the heavy side.

Hi. Does anyone have any opinions on the Bose Noise Cancelling 700 vs Sennheiser PXC-550-II? 

 

If it helps I tend to like to hear a lot of detail in stringed instruments, faithfully reproduced piano notes, and warm vocals. Most reviews seem to suggest that the sound character of these two headphones is very similar, so I have a feeling that I may not notice the difference.

I don't know either headphone. But based on my experience with the Bose Quietcomfort I would say odds are you will get better sound quality from the Sennheiser.

 

I would recommend you go somewhere you can test both, and test it with music that you know well and want to sound good.

So FYI Drop (formerly Massdrop,lol) don’t ship some Sennheiser stuff, in this case the hd6xx. Probably have something to do with the gst laws or sennheiser distribution reasons, other products can still be shipped here.

Sucks for my mate who wants one now considering I got one shipped sometime at the end of last year.

I have the Bose QC 35IIs and the Sony 1000-XM3. 2 weeks ago while in Singapore, tried the Bose 700, they don't seem to have an adjustable headband and were slightly big for my head. Unfortunately I couldn't test SQ as they wouldn't sit nicely on the ears - I promptly put them back!
