Quote from the new review concerns me.
"There is a bit of a problem though, the PC 38X cost $170 on Drop which puts it right in the firing line of the Drop HD 58X"
$170?? I was hoping this would replace the PC 37X instead..
It was not going to come out at the same price, since in the first review that there was of this product, Mad stated that there would be a small additional cost, which worried me, because the phrase small additional cost is relative, it may be that for you small cost be 60 dollars and for me 5, let me understand? I hope so, going back to the above it will be difficult to choose between one and the other, be it between the PC38X and the PC37X or the HD38X and the PC38X.
I do agree this might be a hard sell then, the higher price + yellow colour will put away a lot of potential buyers. Though I guess it's still cheaper than buying HD58X and another seperate USB mic. Tough call.....
to be fair the 58X is pretty mediocre, but it just gets hyped up way too much.
Mine was mediocre until the guys at my local audio store corrected the out of phase driver for me :)
Uhhhh could you elaborate more on that? Also is that a common issue?
I have little idea to whether it is a common issue for I do not know of anyone who has mentioned this here. To elaborate, my HD58X didn't sound terrible but rather mediocre and not very resolving despite being burnt in and supposedly well driven. I brought it to the audio store where I used to work part time at and asked my colleagues about their opinion on the HD58X. They were excited for they heard good stuff about it, but their brows furrowed a few seconds into listening. Leaving without a word, they returned with this electrical device and tested it with the cables connected, inverted and with another cable from one of their HD650s. They announced that the right driver of my pair was out of phase, and one of them fixed it for me then and there free of charge. The sound became oh so tight and clean after that
Ahhh sounds like it could be a manufacturing error, but like you said at this point no one would know how widespread this issue is. I suspect this might be more widespread than we think, but there is no way to know for sure.
Although I'm glad to hear your colleagues were able help you out though! :D
Now you can enjoy HD58X at its fullest potential haha.
Exactly! I was both shocked and happy when I learnt of that. Really grateful to them for doing it for me <3
I think it may be more widespread than it seems as you said- I probably would never have realised there was a problem had I not brought it for my colleagues to listen (it honestly didn't sound terrible even when out of phase)
