Update June 26: The HD 58X will launch Wednesday, June 27 at 9:55 a.m. PT. There will be 1,800 units available, and they will ship in 2 to 3 business days.
Hi everyone, The first production of the Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 58X Jubilee headphones has arrived at the warehouse, and the headphones are now being prepared for shipment. This shipment includes all HD 58X drop participants, which includes members who joined from December 20187 - April 2018. We estimate that the headphones will start shipping early next week. Throughout the production process, we sent various samples to reviewers and we received positive results, as well as some constructive feedback on the sound. Some reviewers mentioned that there was too much energy in the upper mids, and not enough bass extension. We decided to take advantage of the timeline we had, and made changes to the unit as it was being produced. A process like this typically takes years, and we were able to work with Sennheiser to make these changes in just a couple of months. Ultimately, these areas of the sound were improved without any other changes to the headphones. Production is now complete and we’re excited to release the new frequency response graph:

We’d like to thank the community reviewers who helped us through the production process, and we’re looking forward to you all receiving the first production of the Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 58X Jubilee headphones! Some of you received an email from us about a delay in serialization. Unfortunately about 165 serialized headphones are delayed, and expected to arrive at our warehouse by the end of next week. We’ve emailed all of those who are affected and the two options they have. Also, we’re excited to announce that we have remaining units in our warehouse available for immediate shipment. With all the positive response around the HD 58X, we wanted to get more headphones into the hands of audio enthusiasts. We’ll be launching only 1,000 units of the HD 58X on Wednesday, June 27. These units will ship in 2 to 3 business days.

Same. The email update makes it sound like I should expect to receive one of the early shipments, even though I didn't join until mid-April. It'd be nice, to be sure, (I've been champing at the bit since the updated graphs leaked,) but it seems far-fetched. A little clarification seems warranted.

If you're interested, go here: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/massdrop-x-sennheiser-hd-58x-jubilee-review-measurements.867972/page-26 and start reading. "Mark Up"'s post is particularly thorough. The leaked specs are very close to this graph, so I would generally expect similar response. In short, it will be much bassier than originally expected; and may well end up sounding like an HD660S with a little more bass extension. Which is a real achievement for a $150 headphone.

It looks like the leaked graph is correct. A bit more sub bass than the HD650, a tiny bit less in the muddy region from 200 hz to 1 khz. I mean tiny but it will make a difference and higher mids are tamed while highs are improved. A bit more from 9 khz up vs. HD650, so that could please some treble fans. It's also far less dipped, or peaky in the high treble too. With it being easier to drive, no more: "they need a good amp for bass" for this. It's going to be there.

There is some logic to the disparity. One is essentially a clone of a well known and well liked headphone at considerable discount, the other is a related but new edition to the family, so to speak. If the 58x prove satisfactory to the initial batch of buyers, I expect good word of mouth will drive up sales. But as a variant, rather than a clone, it likely won’t ever come close to the 6xx in sales.

I think we agree. The 58x is a variant rather than a clone. As such, until it’s out in the field, people are more likely to go with the clone they know. As for more popular, anything’s possible I suppose, but the 6xx has a gigantic head start.

That may be True but some people love the box, y its possible they'll raise it either in this drop or the next one to show that the 58X y 6XX are on equal footing even if it can possibly affect sales in a negative way, Granted it might change nothing. Although taste is also a big factor in this sort of thing too.

So $150 headphones with a very similar sound signature to ~$350-400 headphones? Works for me.
Also, got notice of shipping on mine as well - has anyone's actually shipped though? FedEx only says the label was created for mine. They weren't actually shipped. Looks like they're coming out of NJ though, so if they ship Monday, they'll likely get to me Tuesday which would mean getting them before we leave on Wednesday for ten days! Gonna be close!

Dear AveryC, I just received an email from Massdrop. Contents from first 2 para as followed:
"It has been brought to our attention that some of the Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 58X Jubilee Headphones shipped out with higher serial numbers than intended (over 501). If you are receiving this email, theres a chance you are receiving a higher serial number than expected. We apologize for this mix up and would like to help get this corrected.
If you would like to ensure that you receive headphones with a low serial number, we ask that you check your serial number on the outside of the box so that the unit can be returned before it is opened. "
THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE for customer who joined during the very first drop back in late December 2017. I understand there is option for me to exchange for a replacement that has a serial number lower than 500 if I received a set with serial number by more than 501. But this is so troublesome as I am using forwarding service for my unit. I based in Singapore and could only checked once the headset delivered by the forwarding company.
What if I received a unit with serial number by more than 501? Would Massdrop pay for the shipping service to ship the item from Singapore back to USA? Would Massdrop directly send me the unit with rectified serial number to my address in Singapore?
I hope my issue will be addressed. Thank you.

I ordered Jan 16. No shipping notification, and when it does finally ship, it’s going to take about two weeks to get to me in Australia.

Feb 15th. Got my shipping notice, but apparently the item hasn't been picked up by FedEx/USPS. Only label created mid last week.

Take them apart and paint them black. Super easy to do.

I don't dislike them, just used to looking at the 6XX's.. I am glad they look different though.. They also have the same headband padding as the 6XX's and not like what they show in the promo pictures..

What they are using the 2 bump and not the 4 like the 580 and 600? I‘m actually mad about that.

I think most people on this site don’t mind giving updates and opinions and if they don’t respond then that’s fine too. I’m not that good at writing reviews but I’m always happy to help when I can.

Oddly enough they seem just as hard to drive as the 6XX, plugged into the aune x1s they sound not as crisp as the 6XX but they do have more low end.. This is to my ears anyhow.. I use the darkvoice with my 6XX's and on a SS these are still more boomy..

I listen to mostly rock/metal and these suit my tastes well, I don't know what the 660s sound like but these are way different than the 600/6XX.. A phone will struggle to drive these, was using the topping NX1s with my phone and on high gain I had it on about 95% volume.. I would say these are closer to my sony MDR-1a to my 6XX sound wise..

I love that and hate that at the same time. I like that style better as far as comfort goes, but hate it because it doesn’t look right if these are supposed to be kind of a retro remaster of the 580s.

A couple odd things.. The matte plastic driver housings are just that, very matte, almost textured.. The forks that hold the housing are not matte, but a shiny smooth plastic.. It looks odd and feels very odd.. And the grills fell very rough..

The headband padding being different than what was promised is disappointing. How can they get away with that?!? Should I worry about them being pink when they arrive too? Shame on you MD.

I’m buying a set when they drop Tomorrow. I have the 600 650 and 660S so I will see how they compare to those.

After swapping back and forth with the 6XX's.. The vocals are very forward in the 6XX, in the 58X everything else but the vocals is in your face..

My concern with the new graph was that the bass would be too powerful and ruin the vocals, even though I don't like when the vocals are too forward or muffled. I like when they're at a nicely balanced level and I prefer when the melody (trebble and a bit of bass) is a bit more forward. From what you've experienced so far, do the vocals sound muffled ?

I don't think they sound muffled, not far off the 6XX, just everything else has been brought up above them..

Oh I see so they have that "powerful" vibe. It's kinda nice depending on what you're listening to ! Thanks for the heads up !
