The best choice for most people
After a few months trading back and forth between these and the HD6XX, I really think most people will be much happier with these. I do most of my listening to my ripped ALAC collection and/or Tidal on my iPhone through the lightning adapter. The Hd6XX are fine with this, but definitely don’t shine like they do when plugged into my desktop computer or receiver, whereas the HD58X sound pretty much the same (great) no matter what you plug them into. If you had to have just one and will do any listening through a portable source, go for these. As for actual performance, they sound like a slightly more energetic set of Sennheiser open-back headphones. Bass guitars come to life on these, and there is enough sparkle on the high end to satisfy most folks. A really great set of headphones at any price.

This is a tough review to write. I know these are not 5 star headphones but every time I change it to 4 I feel like I am selling them short. I have plenty of headphones that are technically better in every single way but found myself having to listen to music I normally wouldn't in order to appreciate what they had to offer. The problem I always had was the music I like is normally poorly recorded and those headphones would just suck the fun out of most of my favorite albums. This includes the 600's and 6xx's. I'm not sure what I expected when I bought these. I've been daydreaming about the 660s and seen another 150ohm Sennheiser with the 6xx series looks for $150 and figured why not. Massdrop shipped them quick and they got here in no time despite the normally slow fedex/usps thing. I have a regular new headphone ritual where I open up foobar and play Reasonable Doubt. Normally I skip through that album in a couple minutes because those other headphones makes the poor quality samples and overall poor recording quality unbearable to listen to. I usually have to use my jbl s700's or ATH-WS1100's for old school hip hop. This is where this review may get a little weird so I apologize in advance. Now I have these on and hit play. Can't Knock the Hustle starts playing and the heart beat starts. At the 30 second mark it dawns on me I am sitting here with my eyes closed remembering when I first bought the cassette back in the day not really even listening. Then the 42sec mark hits and sitting in a room alone I actually say ooh. I sat there with my feet up and eyes closed and listened to the entire album. Not once did I have the flaws of the album forced on me or even thought to look for them. The entire time I was having memories of the first time I listened to the album and enjoyed it just as much as I did then. I know all that probably sounded weird but what I'm about to say may sound even more weird. All of my so called "audiophile" grade headphones always gave me the impression they were tuned by someone a generation older to fit the music they enjoyed when they were younger. These are the first quality pair of headphones that feel like they are tuned by someone from my generation. A lot of audiophile headphones don't seem to like hip hop or at least late 80's early 90's hip hop but these do. Everything just sounds pleasurable. My collection of music is just not hip hop and I normally have to switch headphones depending on what I want to listen to but I haven't felt the need with these. The only real shortcomings I think these headphones have is the soundstage and separation. I'm strictly speaking stock in this review because those can be improved. I find the soundstage to be very close to the 600's and separation of instruments to be a bit less or softer than both the 600's and the 6xx's. I would definitely like more soundstage stock but I think the way these do separation is part of why they work so well with all music and are so pleasurable. If your playlist goes from wu tang to rage to Biggie to Nirvana to Dessa to Wayne to you get the point these are for you. I have seen some comments of owners saying they had some graininess with theirs but I have no sign of that with mine. I did have that with those ATH-WS1100's but it went away after a week of use so hopefully those who have/had that issue with these will have the luck I had with those.

Are these better than my Beats?
That is a definitive yes. I think the only place that the beats can beat the sennheiser hd58x to is who is going to be quicker in going inside the trash can and I believe that beats will win that round hands down, no competition xD. But on a serious note, there is no way any beats model could surpass the sound quality that this can produce
Will this work with my phone?
Short answer: Yes. Long answer: They won’t sound like the $160 you paid for and you will also need to crank up the volume quite a bit.

Poor CS team on DROP I put commentary here, hope anyone from drop management team can see my feeling when I found the CS became sxxx with this cyber Monday promotion. I didn’t get the bonus I thought I can get because I made orders separately (drop updated their promotion rules after campaign ended, before that I see nothing about the order amount should be in single order) . Then the CS can only replied with same words and didn’t understand what I’m talking about. If I knew it should be in one single order, I can easily cancel the older orders and make new one. Don’t know what are CS thinking about, I think I will no longer buy products from drop with such bxxx sxxx services.

I have an issue that just popped up for the second time. on higher volumes (moderate) the sound gets very grainy. I fixed I once by jiggling the cables and everything seemed fine for like 6 months, but with most recent Nvidia driver update the problem is back and I have no idea how to fix it because jiggling the cables isn't working this time.

Prioritize FPS gaming with this headset such as popular titles like Valorant and FiveM. The soundstage on this headset is amazing and can catch a great amount of footsteps from a distance. Definitely accurate soundstage and can immerse yourself in whatever you are experiencing. It does lack bass, however it is not that important especially for a gamer like me. 5/5 stars and would buy again for a friend in need of headphones. (mod edit: removed affiliate links)

lakkrtt202Interesting what the SEO algorithms find important for bot reviews to try to disguise affiliate links. In case anyone else reads this, the comments about the signature don’t match this headphone. Bass is emphasized (not lacking), soundstage isn’t a particular strength of this headphone (better than average, but it doesn’t have particularly elite sense of separation and the bass is too thick to have a holographic sensation of being in the game environment). This is a fun, emotional headphone, not audio VR… the PC38X, HD 560S, and AKG K7XX are better at tactical audio for gaming.

I am just wondering if there's only a single revision of the HD 58X? I was getting emails saying the HD 58X with new drivers. And can anyone tell me how is this compare to the Hifiman Planars?
(Edited)
ConroeDynamic drivers on the HD 58X are way different when compared to Planars. The Hifimans I own have little bass and really clear treble. The HD's are punchy and fun but the treble is not as clear
ConroeThe HD 58X Jubilee has new drivers in comparison to the HD 599 and HD 6XX… they’re like a warmer HD 560S. Hifiman’s planars have a wide range of sound signatures. I generally think they do highs better than lows, but I was pretty happy with some of their higher end models. Planar Magnetic and Dynamic drivers are both mature technologies with decades of history. They both have pros and cons; I wouldn’t say one is better than the other.

DreadTaxThe price went up, but I opine there's no way the PC38X are better for music. I can take off the HD 8XX and put on the HD 58X and still find them amazing in comparison. I cannot say that of some of my other pricy headphones. Sound-wise, even at $190 they're a fantastic buy in my opinion, but it's saner to wait for them to go down in price for a much better value.
DreadTaxThe PC38X and HD 58X Jubilee have very closely related drivers… but better is definitely dependent on what you are looking for. As a gamer headset, the mic on the PC38X flips up but cannot be removed, but it does include two sets of pads for two moderately different tunings (and two lengths of cables). While both headphones have an “exciting” tuning, the HD 58X Jubilee has a more intimate presentation that suits certain music genres while the PC38X presents a wider soundstage and is better at creating the environment in a videogame world. As someone who listens to music and plays videogames (probably more gaming than music, but I love some good tunes!), I use my PC38X almost every day! It’s also been handy for conference calls. The PC38X makes sense in my situation if I could only choose one… However, the HD 58X Jubilee is definitely a versatile headphone (150 Ω impedance and the high sensitivity is IMO a sweet spot for being easy to drive and some dampening benefits to help stabilize amps) with a sound signature that will please and excite most people. I don’t think you could go wrong with either choice.

I recommended these headphones to a family member and they told me they couldn't afford them. I come check out this page and what the hell is this $190 crap?

Unnamed__BeingI'm probably going to use the pc38x instead cause it has a built in mic and I don't want to pay another $100 for a wireless modmic

How good/bad are these for fps type games and trying to hear directional footsteps? Better or worse than something like a HyperX cloud headset?
Hey @Rocket58, I’m not recommending for or against Beyerdynamic or Audeze. I respect both companies. You make a point though, by mentioning these companies detracts from my general closed vs open points, which I meant as the focus of discussion. I don’t think I’m all that important, but I have been given insider information, and I do what I can to share info from Sennheiser to the public. I certainly didn’t intend to antagonize you. I wish I could privately discuss with you to help smooth things out.
I don’t want to stir battles 😅 But since I recently started also consulting for grell audio, I have to be able to talk about other brands now. Honestly, I agree with you, it’s really handy to know what you get from different brands. I’ve owned more headphones than my wife is happy with, and through trade shows and borrowing headphones from Dekoni when I made videos for them, so I’ve actually heard most circumaural headphones on the market (not IEMs though… there’s a million bazillion of those, haha). And before Sennheiser, I got their attention because I used to be an amateur reviewer, so there’s always an innate pull to describe other headphones too. On the other hand, I get why some places would moderate against an industry insider from talking about brands other than their own. I could be biased, start flame wars and angry discourse. To some extent, I think/worry that people will always find me biased, even if I leave Sennheiser. I also don’t want to start fights; they’re usually a waste of time, and there’s plenty of conflict and meanness in the world already without adding to it. However, I’m not interested in putting other companies down. People who anti-hype headphones make me cringe; rarely is another company actually doing something unethical, like cloning someone else’s work or trying to misrepresent themselves to customers. I believe headphones are like flavors of ice cream: there’s a lot of good ones out there and I might be drawn to different once depending on my mood (or circumstance), and even a more extreme flavor I don’t find attractive (such as lemon blueberry cake ice cream) I’ve learned to recognize might be really appealing to someone else. Sometimes I can enjoy an unexpected surprise, so I like to explore. Anyway, enough with the rant. Hopefully my position is clear :) Happy New Year!
