Just dis-assembled my HD58x to examine the new driver assembly. This unit is quite different from the HD600 and HD650 driver. The speaker assembly and the connector bracket are separate pieces. They are also using a small gauge wire that is soldered onto a board at the driver and then directly to the connector springs. This is much different from the HD650 driver which uses the voice coil wire to directly connect the speaker to the connector spring. Pretty interesting changes and I suspect this is a cheaper way to build the driver unit. However, this setup should be more durable and easier to repair if something were to happen.

Thanks for sharing! I no longer own an HD600 but that was my favorite Sennheiser of the bunch. Hoping my HD58X will be worthy of its heritage.

The above image is of the earlier 580/600/(650?) driver with the copper ring.....excluding the wiring the current 600 and650 drivers look a bit more similar to the 58X's.

omg plz read ! "The speaker assembly and the connector bracket are separate pieces. They are also using a small gauge wire that is soldered onto a board at the driver and then directly to the connector springs. This is much different from the HD650 driver which uses the voice coil wire to directly connect the speaker to the connector spring. Pretty interesting changes and I suspect this is a cheaper way to build the driver unit." if ur reply ar nothing related to what he said, then u just trolling here. hes not talking about the copper ring here and if u "excluding the wiring", then i don't c any links between ur reply and his comments. yes ! the current 600 and650 drivers look a bit more similar to the 58X's then the older version, and so what ?! we ar not comparing whos look more alike the 58X's here! "a bit more similar" doesn't mean they looked similar !
