Thanks to TheAudioStore for quickly responding to the request for Home Audition program and arranging quick shipping and pickup. Loved their prompt communication and excellent service :)
First impressions and comparison with hd6xx:
Sound: Immediately noticed much better soundstage, bass, and sub bass!! Slightly peaky treble for my taste but not too bad. Understood what people meant by sennheiser veil. But vocals still sound lovely in hd6xx and not as natural in XS. Still I would consider this a worthy upgrade to hd6xx.
Comfort: Sennheisers felt light and a lot more comfortable. I have a larger head so xs didn't feel like sliding or anything but definitely tighter clamp force and seal. Build quality of senns are much better than xs. Even though they are both plastics, hd6xx feels much better in hand.
Although the headphone was very good, the earpad and seal caused me ear pain and jaw pain so I've decided not to buy them. Something to do with how the pleather pad creates a seal and builds up pressure in the ear.
