I ordered hd6xx a few months ago(I'll get them in a few weeks), and when these went on sale with immediate shipping I caved and bought them as well. I briefly owned hd 650 about a year ago, and from memory, the 58x is slightly better, I could be off because I'm going off of memory, but I think the 58x is more neutral, with less bass overall, although it goes deeper and is better quality. Comfort is about a 7/10 so pretty good. They come with the Sennheiser 1/4 inch adapter which is normally 11 bucks and is really nice. Stock cable on the other hand is pretty meh. Regardless, these things are a bargain at $150 just buy them. They come with the Sennheiser 1/4 inch adapter which is normally 11 bucks and is really nice. I am using them as my daily drivers over my entire collection of cans that normally cost 2-3x as much.
Audioquest Nighthawk: Nighthawk has better comfort, but is just so different sound wise that I don't want to make detailed comparisons. Overall, 58x wins for its price.
Monoprice M1060: 1060 sound is in the same league, but I prefer the 58x, comfort is a tie. 58x wins because of it's price again.
Hd 700: Hd 700 is the most comfortable headphone I've owned, although it will cause your auditory receptors physical pain. 58x wins for price and sound.
See a trend here? 58x isn't going to hands down win against competitors worth 2-3x what it costs, but it's certainly VERY competitive in the under 500 dollar range. I challenge anyone to find me a pair of headphones under $500 that is better in sound, comfort, and versatility. These are seriously nuts, I still use my other headphones, but these are amazing all-rounders and I'd still recommend them at 300 dollars.
Did you take out the foam inside the grills??
It's absolutely worth it,it'll make the headphones sound a ton better..
