I have a question about the size of the HD 58X. I have a big head and I'm wondering if I will have issues with these being uncomfortable to wear for any periods of time. Anyone have insight on this?
As far as we know this headphone uses the same form factor as the HD600/HD650/HD6XX/HD660S. Generally these headphone are known to come from the factory with a relatively high clamping force. It can initially be uncomfortable to wear these for an extended period. However they typically break-in with use to achieve a more comfortable clamping force. After breaking in they are usually regarded as very comfortable headphones.
As far as sizing goes I have a fairly large head and my HD650 can still adjust to significantly larger than I use. I imagine you would need a very impressive head to not fit the headphone.
Also if it is too tight from the get go you can carefully bend the head band to obtain a better fit (the metal portion, do NOT bend the plastic). With a bit of googling you can locate the bending instructions if needed.
