...my Anandas died after 2 years of daily use. I always thought "why have multiple pairs if you can have one really good pair?" Well, I had my 6XX's shelved for 2 years. I immediatly switched and got adjusted to them the next day. And they sound great too! Sure they don't have the same imaging capabilities and clarity as the Anandas but wow they sound pleasant still! omegle xender\nLesson learned: keep multiple pairs, even if you think you'll never use your old ones again.
