Had these for a few weeks.. coming from hd 650s.. theese are more of a fun headphone.. more bass and treble' but quality does suffer a tiny bit.. treble is very detailed but can be grainy if your nit picking.. midrange awesome sennheiser mids.. no complaints. Bass can be a tiny bit bloated but still good.. a bit more listening fatige then 650s.. but for 149 its an awesome buy
i had both pair recently and my finding are prettey much similar (up to now).
the 650 (6xx) has the best bass definition of anything i have ever heard, making for very 3D like an «rythmic» sound, but the response is pretty uneven and often instrument are missing or overly present. the higher bass hump is the most annoying thing in my mind, which you can equilize well, but in the midrange and in the very top there are part of the spectrum missing. they benefit a lot though from burn in.
hd58x has a better equilibrated, sound more realistic overall, and poundering bass though not as tight or extendend, and the highest frequencies it outputs are a bit too loud, like cymbals, and it becomes fatiguing to MY ears, but the overal balance is better and you feels the presence of every (more) instruments in the song. it has also a tiny less bit of detail overall than the hd650. I prefer them to the hd650 for movies.
The graininess i have remarked also, but it gets better, but not perfect as it burns in.
Both have defenitly strengths belonging to a more elevetated market segment, but they also have their small quirks, which one may be picky (like me) or not about.
