Pretty strange how Massdrop is cannibalizing the sales of the 58X. I just can't hang with that June shipping date so for $50 more I'm gonna go with the better 6XX instead.
True if you don't have either. I just got my HD6XX so I'll play around with those until my HD58X arrive next year. Then I'll either mod or sell my least favorite of the two.
shit takes time to manufacture m8
$50 represents a 25% reduction in price vs the 6XX, or a 33% increase over the 58X. It's a similar price point, but not an insignificant difference for a lot of people.
How soon would the 6XX ship compared to the 58X?
6XX - March 2018
58X - June 2018
So I guess the extension of the drop for the 6XX does push back the ship date. For whatever reason I'm still debating between those and the 58X.
I opted for both. It's my first foray into actual headphones, always been a ciem/iem kinda guy but Im looking forward to testing both of these models out, especially the 6XX.
If I could afford both I would glad buy both.
I was nice this year so Santa brought forth blessings ;)
hehe fair enough. I may bite the bullet and splurge on the 6XX as there are plenty of reviews out there for them. The 58X are virtually untested. But I like the look of the 58X more but hopefully they're both equally comfortable. I'm using 598s right now.
