if I can't tell the difference between these and the 58X jubilees... do I need better equipment? lol
Or better ears maybe?
But honestly, what are you using for a DAC and amp? It may be that you need better gear to drive these to their full potential where you would notice the difference.
That's kinda what I was getting at. I'm using a pretty cheap DAC / Amp combo. i can't remember the specific model but I couldn't have spent more than $70 on it like 5 years ago.
I can hear a difference between certain headphones and both the 58X and 6XX... it's just the 58X and 6XX that I'm having issues telling the difference between.
i think they're supposed to sound about the same.
The sound signatures are pretty similar. The 58x has a somewhat more exciting sound with a bit more bass while the 6xx is a little more laid back with a bit of a mids bump. Overall clarity and resolution is better on the 6xx, but not massively so. Both are excellent headphones. Both sounds quite good out of a normal cell phone or computer headphone jack, but the 6xx will sound much better when paired with a good DAC and decently powerful amp.
