As nice as these are I really prefer the 6xx and these seem to lag behind for a matter of 50$.. On the other hand if it was a massdrop rendition of the hd600 I would be all over it for analytical purposes. Comfort wise and athetically sennheiser is giving the hifimans an other budget cans a run for their money.
Thank you for the design compliments! The photographs on this drop with the models wearing them are especially good representations of the true to life appearance of these, with a black headband/c clamps and dark grey grilles.
These HD 58X Jubilee are a mix of DNA from the original HD 580 Jubilee (which were a limited run until we released the HD 600 with the same sound signature), the HD 650, and the treble extension of the HD 660 S. So, they are not a direct rebrand of an existing model, but a new member of the family. When these are delivered early 2018, it will be the 25 anniversary since the launch of the HD 580 Jubilee, which set the stage for Axel Grell’s contributions and the HD 6 series line!
Im curious how they place in terms of other headphones. I currently have the hd598. Is this an upgrade? Or sidegrade?
The HD 58X Jubilee is really the entry to the HD 6 series of headphones, and should present itself as a more refined headphone than the HD 598.
Historically, the limited edition HD 580 Jubilee was so well liked that we brought the same sound signature into continuous production as the HD 600. When the new headphones ship early 2018, it will be the 25th anniversary of the headphone that started the HD 6 series!
Sonically, the HD 58X Jubilee will mix some of the “DNA“ characteristics of the HD 600, 650, and 660 S, but in a new affordable easier to drive package that provides a great entry into the series above the HD 598. It is also physically larger than the HD 598, so the HD 58X Jubilee will serve more as a “transportable” open headphone rather than an “on the go” portable headphone, so in some use cases (the office? Hotel?) you may prefer to bring your HD 598. Although it will arrive in 2018, the HD 58X Jubilee will also make a great “Gift” Headphone to start someone on high quality audio.
Very cool, thanks!
It sounds like i have to grab myself a pair, especially considering how great the price is.
Is the fit the same as the hd600/650?
Same fit! Interchangeable replacement part, too, so if you ever need future repairs, we can do it or send parts like Earpads or headband padding to you so you don’t have to go without for awhile.
