I have just received my Senneheiser 58X, and I am enjoying them. However, I realize I want the option of a bassier headphone, and I am considering these and sending them to modhouse for conversion to Argons. Is it worth it or there are other better or more affordable alternatives with the same or more bass extension?
Yup the blues are already a mod of Fostex t50rp, but if you look at the frequency responses for those 3(dekoni/fostex/modhouse) you can see that the driver really can't do subbass. Also you need a lot of power to drive them (recommended is at least 1000mw). For bassier headphones i would look at the meze 99 noir or beyerdynamic dt770

These are barely modded. Different pads, blue plastic and supposedly some sort of change to the baffle, but the Dekoni Blues have none of the type of internal mods you'd see for most t50 mods, so you definitely can send them to Modhouse to be fully modded and get some benefits. I would agree that OP would probably be better off with a dynamic driver headphone like the Meze 99 Noir if they want real bass impact.

Just to put it out there, even on the Dekoni website the ones they're selling for 250 instead of the 200 here ALSO don't come with the second sheepskin earpads. They apparently haven't shipped with 2 pairs instead of 1 for a couple years now. Edit: Also if you're on the fence, take most of the criticisms with a grain of salt -- everyone has preferences on their audio. Some prefer warmer, bassier audio (which these seem to have) and some prefer flat or mid-heavy sound. A lot of times you can pump the bass up or down just by changing earpads, which Dekoni also sells a ton of different styles of. These are NOT flat headphones so you won't be using them as much for reference, but even a lot of audiophiles admit that reference headphones with much clearer mids and highs can be fatiguing to listen to because of just *how* crisp and jarring the highs can be -- "p" sounds, "s" sounds, and stuff like cymbals can become grating for longer sessions.

A couple of years is a little bit of a stretch, got mine 1 1/2 years ago and they still came with both pads. But yeah, they are V-shaped which makes the 10k peak a little too prominent in comparison to the mids... for my preference at least. Also comfort wise they were not the best for me as the headband padding is abysmal and both pads were getting uncomfortable after some time. Not saying i don't enjoy them but i really can't listen to them for long Edit: Could also be that my ears are just too big :P

The reason I say "a couple of years" is that it seems like the complaints started in 2019, from most sources. I've read a lot of complaints about lacking the second pair and even on their main website they don't advertise it any more. You could certainly gamble on the slightly higher price and hope you get some old stock that has the extra pads, but with knowledge of the fact that cables and wires of all types are waaaaaay more expensive at the moment than they were pre-covid, I could see that being a justifiable reason for them needing to cut that corner. You could still probably find old stock with the extra pads still in, though. And yes, the comfort is a bit subjective. I see a lot of people saying they're super comfortable and a lot of people saying they're a tad small too, but also people praising them not being massive for aesthetic reasons lol. Edit: Editing this again because the overview has been updated to clarify that yes, there is no second set of pads with these*. You may still be able to find old stock with 2 pairs of pads on other websites, and you can always buy the velour set yourself for 40$ extra on the Dekoni website. And yes, I've seen comments as late as like August* 2020 that say they have the second pads included, but far more that are complaining about the fact that they aren't. My sample size here isn't massive though lol

Note: Unlike previous versions of the Dekolni Blue, the headphone no longer ships with an extra pair of pads. But we're going to charge you the same price as the versions that did. Cause people just love those Drop points apparently.

If I remember correctly, these sold at lower prices at first for a few drops. From what I can tell, Drop has increased prices for headphones, even their own, across the board.

too bad it comes with sheepskin, would've considered.

Should these headphones be “broken in” with white/pink noise to sound as intended? These are my first planner phones and they sound really good right out of the box... so not sure about breaking in for planners. What is the best practice?

You guys may already be aware but I was surprised to find out that these cans do not come with any kind of warranty. Not even 30 days. As I was reading some of your posts, it seems like Drop (1) increased the price, (2) removed the 2nd set of pads and (3) does not include any warranty. All for the price of $199. I got this during the last drop but mine had a defect and that's when I found out about the warranty. Drop was willing to accept the return for full refund but I'm not sure about ordering a replacement due to the lack of warranty. Best of luck to all who committed to the drop.

of course they have a warranty...just like everything else that’s sold by any other business.
