Product Description
In 1991, Axel Grell joined Sennheiser and designed the HD 580 Precision: the headphone that would launch a much-loved series—and the peak of the company’s audiophile headphones for more than 25 years. Four years later, to mark its 50th anniversary, Sennheiser released the HD 580 Jubilee, which would later become the HD 600 and lead to the HD 650 ... Read More

Since I have two HD58X's, I wanted to mod one a little more than normal to see if I could like it better than stock and have a more dedicted unit for gaming. Mods consist of Yaxi Alcantara pads and headphile standard depth wood cups (zebrawood) and it currently looks like this:
search
Made it fully sealed via Loctite Fun-Tak acting as gasket between the cups and frame (the blue you can see in the picture). Isolates well and no sound leakage. Adding wood cups and Yaxi pads seems to give bigger sense of space to the music, definitely less intimate than stock. Also seems to have better presentation of the details. Sound is darker and warmer with this setup, and low end a bit more emphasized. Sounds very good in gaming, more sense of space to the sound along with detail, imaging about the same. It is noticeably heavier than stock, but still more comfortable overall due to the Yaxi pads... Alcantara and a little more room for ears = noticeably increase in comfort. If you don't mind darker and warmer sound that is a little more relaxed and distant, then Yaxi Alcantara pads are a great option... and comfort is much improved over stock. Regarding weight increase with the standard depth wood cups, they are still no heavier than a TH-X00 Purpleheart (less cable)... so very manageable and not rediculously heavy. Not completely done with it yet... still want to try a few tuning things with it, paint it an Anthracite/metallic color, and add a sort of trim piece to cover the frame-to-cup seam.

Need some advice. I need a nice set of headphones to use with my regular stereo system. I want to sit down and listen to LP's. I have a decent Cambridge Audio integrated amp. I have no headphones. Right now I'm looking at the Sennheiser HD 58X and the HiFiMan HE4XX. My budget was $100, which became $150, and you can see how that's working out. Any suggestions between the two...or should I look elsewhere? Thanks!

Is it worth getting these over the 6xx? Is it worth the 60 dollars difference? I will run these with a cheap amp/dac like the Fiio E10k because I cant afford myself an expensive amp/dac.

Hi guys, I'm a casual gamer, recently i have been playing Elite Dangerous, I have bought this game like a month plus and have already invested more than 200hrs. I'm looking for a headphone that i can use it for gaming, listening to music once in a while and piano practicing (but mostly for gaming purpose) then I came to massdrop and eyeing the two of these model. i have no amp in my pc setup, and not planning to get one. Im currently using logitech z625 as my speakers which came with a 3.5mm on the satellite so i can plug the headphone to my speaker. Add on: I have external mic, so whether the headphone has mic or not, it doesnt matter. from what people said, pc37x is for gaming while the hd58x is a bit flat, which one should i get?

I think the SHP-9500 is better in terms of soundstage for gaming. Neither need amps to sound good. Detail is better in the hd58x.

I have HD58X and now I have HD6XX after all these months , First of all I have to say Build Quality is WAAAAY better on HD6XX I know its strange but its true , I got HD58X first and I got bad quality plastic that I got squeak noises and some harsh plastic endings also the pads was very stiff and bad shaped ,  When I first open my HD6XX I was expecting the same build quality like HD58X , but I was surprised plastic are very good refined and there are no squeak noises , the pads are good shaped and softer and bigger .  About Sound , keeping it short HD6XX are cleaner to me more warm , and HD58X are brighter with deeper bass.

I will copy paste my answer that i give to some other person. HD599 was my pair before HD58X when I first open HD58x I felt bad because of the quality to me HD599 looked better , About the sound I use all my Headphones with LG v30, Fiio, PS4 controller and my favorite IFI micro nano dac . About Sound HD 599 on games ps4 have bigger soundstage from both HD58X and HD6xx also they sound louder on PS4 controller ( hd58x or just ok and HD6XX they are silent) When o put them on LG v30 I start hearing differences HD599 vs HD58X the HD599 sounded more open again a little bit brighter and with more high bass notes I felt that the bass was on every song , HD58X on the other hand sounded way more closer and the singer its like its in front of you in your face , they don't have the mid or high bass , but they have low bass notes . For music HD58X are better and more singer focus and the instruments are closer to you like you are in a room , For games HD599 sound more open like a stadium more bright and how can I say it more air in them with faster response way faster . HD58X vs HD6xx , as I said only HD58x can used on ps4 controller and HD6xx are just ok on a good mobile dac like LG v30 , on my IFI nano black HD6XX are perfection for my taste. Sound characteristics , HD58X sound for my ears more Harsh more grain on them (not bright open) they remind me some Beyerdynamic 990 that I demo very similar from what I remember , HD 58X have more low end bass but not like they side huge difference this is not true , just a little bit more bass . HD6XX are more OPEN than HD58X but not open like HD599 not even close, they are perfect open for music . Let me give u an example HD599 it feels like you are in a big big place like a cinema or something , HD58X feels like you are in a table with the singer 1 meter from u and HD 6xx feels like you are in a studio with the singer 5-8 meters from you . Also HD6xx are way smoother so easy to listen (that's the only pair that I could listen hours and hours) there is no brightness no harshness no fast bass all over the place , you can understand the bass notes difference better than HD58X but they don't hit you like HD58X they just came smooth and progressive . At the end HD6xx for me are smoother more technical headphone that music lovers will love and people with a lot of headphones like me will love because they have something different . HD58X are the most easy to love headphones of all I have , all of my friends seem to love them more because they have a sound signature that is modern and give everything in your face . HD599 are way different headphones that you must have because they have bigger soundstage and easy to drive on consoles for gaming so if I had to choose then HD599 for gaming and HD6XX for music with dac if I had to choose just 1 headphone to use it for music movies and gaming without a dac then HD58X is the best. I hope I helped.

I'm just wondering could anybody tell me why there is a cable going into each ear? Not really into headphones and it seems to be a thing on the higher end headphones. Is it because the drivers need so much power or what is the reasoning behind this? I've tried googling info on it the past 2 days but only get info about why cords keep breaking or how to prevent crods from breaking even typing in "why do some headphones have a wire coming from left and right side while some only have one". Any info on the subject would be greatly appreciated!

I find that there's still one aspect to this missing, which is durability and maintenance. I have a suspicion that one of the reasons you primarily see this on higher end headphones is because there's expectations that if you put down 200$< on a pair of headphones they need to be able to last. (Yeah, the HD58X are technically cheaper, but their model design originates in more expensive headphones.) As Michael mentioned, both cups on a headphone need power. The actual component that produces the sound is the driver, the small mechanical device that pushes the air in rapid succession, creating sound waves. One of those are housed inside each ear cup, and, if it's a normal wired headphones, those are usually the only components that require power. Chances are, that if a headphone has only one cable going into one ear cup, the other one is actually connected to the first one by a cable routed through the headband. This is visible on some headphones, like the HyperX Cloud 1 and 2 headsets. I have not yet seen a headphone made in this way where that cable was easily detachable, which means that if it breaks for some reason, you'll basically be stuck with a headphone that can only play sound in one side unless you have some moderate tinkering experience and spare time to kill. Having each cup receive power through the external, usually detachable wire just means that there's a few internal components less that could fail and cause the entire headphone to need replacement. Buying a 5-20$ cable replacement is definitely preferable in such a case to putting down another hundreds of dollars on a new headphone. Furthermore, as AudioJR mentions, if you want to upgrade the cable to a balanced XLR connection (I hear this has some bearing on sound quality, if you have the setup to make use of it) I guess it kind of won't work optimally if both drivers aren't fed signals directly through the external cable. Lastly, the HD58x and its HD600 series siblings are designed and constructed to be easily dismantled, which a wire running through the headband would complicate needlessly. You can basically pull them apart and reassemble them almost without any tools at your disposal. Sennheiser seems to be selling spare parts for their headphones, although most are sparsely available. Still, it's a nice, quality of life feature for something like this to have, I find. Also certainly makes it easier for people who like to paint their headphones to do so.

I am a glasses wearer and I recently purchased the HD58X (5.6.2019). Read many reviews that spoke to the high comfort level, however they come out of the box extremely clampy, however after stretching them out slightly the comfort improves a bit. I previously owned Bose QC 35 and these are FAR less comfortable out of the box. Does that mean I wouldn't buy them? Not at all, just want to temper expectations. You will definitely want to follow instructions online somewhere on how to soften the material. The exterior material is noticeably cheap, most likely to get these headphones down to the list price, however the sound quality is superb. I have paired it with the GSX 1000 and the Modmic 5 and it looks great and sounds great. 4.5/5 Stars

If I use a 3.5mm male to female cable to extend the headphones to my tv will I loose sound quality because it's a balanced headphone?

It's a headphone that can be converted to being balanced with merely an after market cable. I wouldn't call it balanced out of the box. Even if the return/neutral wires extend all the way to the source, eventually they do combine into 1 - just like the extension cable. I doubt anyone on the planet can quickly hear a difference 100% of the time if you used the 3.5mm male to female extension cable. At least, I'd be completely shocked and in total disbelief. Not plugging into a dedicated amp or dac is often very audible though. What I'm trying to say is if it is possible to hear the difference using the extension cable, the difference is significantly less than the loss of quality due to merely plugin into a tv directly. (not trying to sound snobby, I've plugged directly into monitors/tv's in the past as well. I'm just trying to put things into perspective. Simply put, it'll be fine.)

I have a question for the guys in Europe. Has anyone of you chosen an upgraded shipping option? Did it come by your local post office or by e.g. DHL? I know the Standard option comes by DHL from the USA to EU and then it's given to your country's post, which takes ages.

Is a DAC/AMP required with these headphones? Been running it on my motherboard at 50% volume as standard. Would a DAC/AMP improve audio quality at all?

You have to go big to get a worthy improvement unless dirty noise is an issue. However, bang for the buck always lies with headphone improvements, unless they are very underpowered by the source. I guess you could say dac/amps are a platform that allows better headphones to perform even better, but you would need to jump into ever growing price tiers to warrant noticeably better improvements. My mobo jack is kind of noisy, so it's an easy choice on my end.

I'm waiting for my pair, and if it squeaks and it's mostly the left cup that does from what I've read, I would try a droplet of silicon oil to the plastic area where it squeaks. Silicon oil doesn't deteriorate plastic so it's good.

I bought these as well as an Amp/Dac on Amazon. They sound better plugged into my mic preamp (AT-2020) (Focusrite Scarrlet Pro Solo).
What Amp/Dac do you use with these cans, and how do you like the setup?
I mainly use these headphones for playing PC Games.
What Amp/Dac would you prefer?

When a Massdrop made product is in stock, the drop "timer" is cyclic, and set to one day. But don't work, you won't miss out. I think it's just used to help with internal logistics. So if the button says "buy", that means there is product stock waiting at the NJ warehouse waiting to be shipped. If it says "pre-order", then more are in the manufacturing process or the product has yet to be made (the first run of a new item)
