I'll try to keep this fairly brief as so much info has already been posted regarding the 58X's. I replaced a HyperX Cloud II gaming headset with these, and as expected, there is a world of difference sound quality wise. This is the first audiophile grade phones I've owned since the early 90's and for the money, I can't imagine being able to do much better. The one thing I wanted to specifically remark on is the comfort. As I sat and auditioned these with at least 45 minutes of continuous music, just to follow with a couple hours of watching various reviews of DACs and AMPs (my next purchase for sure, still trying to figure out what to go with), it struck me that I was virtually unaware of having these things on my head. After 30m or so with my previous headset, I was starting to adjust them, move them about to get comfortable again. I know this is going to sound strange, but except for the sound I was hearing, I literally became unaware of wearing headphones for the 3+ hours I used these last night. The SQ is one thing and of course we all know they deliver, but honestly the comfort and being able to wear them 'unaware' is the single most surprising thing about them. As I sit here thinking about it, it may be the most important part, because it means I can truly enjoy them, and never hesitate to reach for my headset when sitting down for any activity at the computer (gaming, youtube, whatever). 100% recommended without hesitation!
