I bought these headphones and I am extremely satisfied with them; When I listen to songs that have vocals I feel like they are more intimate and you can feel what they are truly singing about. The bass is actually pretty good and surprised me because all the reviews that I read about these headphones were saying that the treble is harsh and the bass is very weak without an amplifier.
Listening to Hotel California, when the tom first hit it felt very punchy and realistic when I was playing this off of my iPod nano.
I am very happy that I bought these headphones and I would strongly recommend this to anyone.
Good to know. I got the HD 58X a couple months ago and they have become my favorite open back headphones. I jumped on this drop because this one doesn't warrant a six month wait. I'm giddy about receiving these. The curiosity has been killing me since Massdrop first dropped them. The value is great but not the half year wait. God bless!
I feel the same way about the HD 58X and I'm glad I can finally pick these up to try without waiting forever to get them. That was what kept me from getting them over the HD 58X was that I kept missing drops and the wait time kept me from really trying to get in on a drop. I doubt they are going to be a ton better than the HD 58X but curiosity killed the cat and my wallet : )
Is it only the matter 'waiting time' that made you prefer this cans over HD 58X?
If they were available at the same time, which would you choose?
It's funny how we're on the same exact boat. Hilarious! I wonder who else got the HD 58X just to avoid waiting on the HD 6XX but ended up liking them too much!
I would imagine at least a few people did the same thing. If the HD 6XX is even slightly better I'm going to be really happy.
Which would I choose? BOTH. Because they're different models, I think it's senseless to choose one over the other. Your question is very easy to ask but very hard to answer, my buddy. The only reason I got the 58X first is because I didn't want to wait for the 6XX, but now that I saw them today on this fast drop, I bought them. If I already owned the 6XX, I would've still gotten the 58X, because they're different headphones. I like enjoying the tonal difference in headphones.
Me too. I do not expect the 6XX to sound "better", but highly likable , especially when compared to the 58X. It's a human thing to compare stuff. It's inevitable! Now, "better" is a word that has lost its meaning to me. My cheapest headphones are the 58X, but they're the ones that I always choose when I feel like listening to music. I ignore the others, or postpone their use in that session until I get my 58X fix first. They don't sound "better" than my pricier ones, nor I like them more, but my musical enjoyment with them is superior. Will the 6XX be better in that sense? I guess we'll find out soon!
That’s exactly what I did. Picked up 58X because they were availabl to ship. I used to have HD650s and wish I’d never sold them, but I have to be honest that I don’t really miss them anymore! I also have Focal Elex and I reach for 58X just as often. At roughly 1/5 the price, I’d say that 58X was a good purchase
I think the term "better" still applies to girlfriends and cocktails--those two can never be too good ;- )
While I'm out of both of those games, I fully agree. Hah!
