This is too confusing. I bought the 58x because it was meant to be like the 580, closer to the 600. Now in production, the chart profile of the 58x looks more like the 650 with slightly more bass, How does that make sense??? – prototype vs production excuses don’t count!!

58X never sounded anything like the 580, even the pre-production.

So it is, but it‘s Not??.... When 58x first came out the charts showed something closer to the 580., then don’t call it 58x, call it 65x.

It is just a tribute... Calm down and read some reviews if you want to have an idea about how these sound.

65X is the 6XX. These are more like the 660S with a huge bass boost than the 650.

But these are bassier than the 650/6xx right ?

Yes, a lot bassier. That’s the problem.

I just received my 58x, whatever they did or say, it does not matter... I am enjoying them a lot, so I'll be in my quiet moment for a long while... now I'm wondering about the 600s... somehow the bass does not feel overwhelming... the highs... hmmm... detailed.... very nice... very nice... very nice.... .... ... ... .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Why do you think it would be a problem?
From what I have read the hd 6xx would do well with a bit more bass.

Because that's not the point of the 600 series, they are supposed to be on the flatter side to be analytical headphones and pushes the 58X even farther away from the HD580 sound.

To me the purpose or headphones is to sound good. Not sound like they are supposed to according to their name.
The goal of the 58x clearly was not to reproduce the 580's one.

Yeah, but the bump in the mid bass could cloud the mids. It's not characteristic of this series, if you want bass, you don't buy the 600 series, not their purpose.

OK.
Will see what you are talking about for the 600 series' sound signature when I receive the HD6xx.
Long wait. I hope the bass is still present as I think it brings some '' liveliness '' to the sound.

Apparently it is now. They said the feedback was for increased bass output, I read that b4 going in. All I can say is that the bottom end on my pair is quite respectable, way better than my hd580s which only sound flat when cranked up loud. I will do some,more listening tonight against my hd800's for reference but my initial listen was enjoyable. Taste probably is to blame but I wonder if There is production variation in this model?
