I just got my HD 58X and I could not be more dissapointed. Everything you said you about the tweaks to the production are exactly what I now find lacking. Bloated bass, lacking upper midrange detail. As a recording engineer of over 40 years I have to say that these are useless as a reference tool in my work. I am listening to original stereo master recordings through a Grace 902 and 906 DA and headphone amp. I gambled, I lost. I hope other finds these more enjoyable.

Given your experience and equipment, I think Focal Clears would be your best bet.

Try removing the foams behind the grills, maybe you'll like them more this way

Considering ur experience and equipment, exactly why are you buying these cans? You sound upset so I can't help but think... Sounds like you expected an awful lot for 150$. Maybe u won't be disappointed with hd800s or Eclears or Audeze? No 150$ cans there for sure.
