Holy God, this headphone is amazing. I do not want to use my other headphones anymore (AKG K7XX, HD598SE). HD58X is very comfortable and pads are soft for stock. Build is good for what you pay for and I love the look of it. Great Job MD and Sennheiser!
P.S. I have serial #497
I bought a new pair of HD 598 SE and instantly liked their almost holographic soundstage, but found them not as sparkly in the highs as I like, and also found the lower mids to be muddier and the higher bass looser than I like. I gifted them to a friend after a year of barely using them. How do the HD 58X compare?
The downfall to the 598SE is the lack of sub bass. The 58X makes up for that, bass is tighter and fuller, Mids are present and accurate, highs are crisp, but I think the 598SE has crisper highs. The 598SE is still considered a "Fun" headphone, it just lacks sub bass.
