Due to comfort, it beats out the HiFiman HE-350 and HE-4XX. I use them as my daily driver for music, gaming, and streaming. They are fantastic for game soundtracks as well as spatial audio in games like csgo. My music taste is typically metal-death metal, which these do their job with. I'll be honest, they aren't the best headphones I own at anything. But if I averaged a score in every category, they are the best all around. That's kind of what Sennheiser has always been, so with this price, I recommend them. P.S. I ordered these back in Feb. and just got them a few weeks ago, and even after that wait time, I still recomend them wholeheartedly. P.S.S They are actually the best at something. Voices. Talking with friends in teamspeak sounds it's best on these.
Do they have a bigger soundstage than the HE-4XX?
The HE-4XX have an insane sound stage. They are the only planar magnetic headphones I've used, but I think that the wide sound stage is part of the deal. That being said, the 58Xs sound stage isn't bad. Its wide enough to keep that "walking into a room with music" feeling, but small enough that it isn't impacted by whats around you. If I raise my hand anywhere near the cans of the 4XX, there is a major change to the sound. Final verdict- The 4XX is better for ideal listening conditions, but due to the weight, size, and build quality, I recommend the HD-58X if you plan to use your headphones for multiple hours at a time, or daily.
When you raise your hand behind the driver of the HE-4xx and it changes the sound, it is because of the fact it is an orthodynamic headphone, not because it has a large soundstage.
