Warm yet very detailed and spacious sound with right amount of low end. I did not expect that quantity and quality of bass from open-type headphones actually. Source is mostly FiiO X5-III, excellent fit. Other source tried is Idol 4 (AK4376-based phone which is btw much better that M1 and other portable ESS-based gear including Vxx phones) is kinda ok with them (capable of driving them at 100% volume but resolution is noticably lower than FiiO) so their sensitivity and impedance are just right to pair them with basically anything, but be prepared to upgrade your source, they deserve that. Compared to DT880, ATH-AD700 and Focal Listen I also have, 58x are better in each and every dimension. Compared to common benchmark M50x I've listened a lot but don't have 58x clearly wins in clarity and details, esp in midrange while bass (which imho is the best thing about M50) is surprisingly almost the same. Excellent value, easy to recommend. Thanks Massdrop and Sennheiser, great job!
