I watched a review done by HardwareCanucks and they highly praised this headset, so I was intrigued and took a chance with this. In regards to the comfort and sound quality, this headset is fantastic. Unfortunately, the build quality of this is not worth the price point, in my opinion. They feel cheaply made, the bridge that holds it all together feels like a cheap plastic and the housing on the outside of both ear cups also feels like this. The metal cover going over the outside of each ear cup feels fine, that's really the only part of the casing that feels legit.
As for the cushions on the sides, they feel great and are really comfortable so far. The same with the foam on the interior, I haven't noticed any pain from my ears pressing on the insides. The top cushioning isn't made of the same material, but it does still feels comfortable. I also own the Sennheiser GAME ONE headset, and I was hoping these would have been built similar (I know they cost more, but they're always on sale for about the same price as the 58X). The cable length is definitely another plus for this headset, most of the cables that came with my previous headsets were all about 3ft long. Overall these aren't the best that I envisioned them to be, but I knew there was a chance they would go one way or another when I purchased them.
This headphones design has been around for a long time, 24 years to be exact, and the HD58x has the exact same build quality as the rest of the HD600 line. In fact the paint work is better than my last pair of HD650s. There's plenty of people that have used them for over 10 years and just change the pads once in awhile. Really they're more durable than they appear, just don't step on them or try and loosen the tension by pulling on the earcups.
