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.

Would recommend to a friend.
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.

Significantly better from any gaming headsets I’ve owned and Beats Studio https://www.linsoul.com/products/harmonicdyne-athena?sca_ref=5542004.MzJekDCen6

At this sale price if I didn’t already have two HD 58’s on hand I’d have to order one today. These are a great buy.

If one were to buy these as their forst 'audiophile headphone' what would be a good amp to run these on a computer?

Dylan.AragornThe HD58’s aren’t truly power hungry, but they do require an ample amount of clean power to really shine. Something like the JDS Labs Atom or a Schitt Magni would be very good inexpensive amplifiers that a person could easily be more than satisfied with driving the 58’s or most any quality headphones.

I noticed a few couple of posts about the ALC1220-VB Realtek being decent. I have that on my current motherboard and was thinking of add these SENNHEISER HD 58X to take advantage of Tidal Music hi-fi. Do you think it would work well or has anyone tried it?

SouthpawStevenIt'll be passable, but a good, clean DAC/amp combo will really make them sound their best. They're especially impressive with a proper DAC and beefy amp.

I have a amazon HD 6XX, and never fell in love with it. I had the fortune of comparing the HD 58X next to the 6XX at CanJam NYC, and found I prefer the sound signature of the 58X, so I picked one up and am happy as a clam! No knock on the 6XX - it's just a personal preference thing - but just noting it so that folks know that it's not that one or the other is objectively "better", and it's worth trying both to see what tuning fits your ears.

Hi Drop Community I recently purchased the hd58x and am really loving these headphones as I'm on my journey into the Audiophile space. Convenience is key for me, I am running these with a fiio btr5 dac amp, listening to tracks off mobile devices. I'd really like to know your opinion and recommendations as to other bluetooth dac amps that can not only run these but have a bit more grunt, up to being ok to drive 300ohm cans, Cheers Dave

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.
