Using a system-wide sound modification program called Equalizer APO, I created an EQ profile for the HD 58X that lowers the mid-bass through the upper-mids, which will remove the perception of 'haze' in the sound, widen the sound-stage, and generally make things sound more real. Sub-bass will seem extended.
Once installed, click on the green "+" and select 'Graphic Equalizer with variable bands'. Then copy-paste the following into the (pencil and paper) 'Edit text' bar:
GraphicEQ: 27 0; 33 -1.3; 38 -2; 44 -2.5; 50 -2.9; 56 -3.2; 63 -3.5; 71 -3.7; 80 -3.8; 100 -4; 160 -4; 2500 0
Using the columns on the right side of the window (or within 'Edit text'), the frequencies/levels can be adjusted to individual taste. Other profiles can be added for other headphones. To deactivate a profile, click on the white 'profile active' button, and it will turn black.

That's a sick equalization man. I didn't even notice the haze until I put this tweak on. Makes them sound even better.... somehow. Tysm man. :D <3

You're welcome. I don't even own the 58X. But I do have some experience with graphic equalization... and came up with that profile by looking at the frequency response graph on the main page. Enjoy!

Do you have somewhere that you keep all of your settings? I use this and saw your he-4xx elsewhere, looking for 6xx and k701 settings.

Sure, I'll create a profile for the 6XX and post it here and in its discussion. The k701, too? Sure.
