I just got the 58x's, I'm powering them through my smsl m3 and it sounds really bloated. I'm coming from an m40x's and i consider their bass to be more than sufficient. Is my unit defective or is it just me?
Yea, I did this mod and they definitely sound less bloated. I still feel like some clarity is still missing on these headphones on some songs, I might splurge for a HD 600 in the near future :P
few things i did to gain clarity with the HD 58X was...
they now sound clearer, cleaner with very accurate imaging in games and music. the sound stage is very close/intimate and in-between your ears pretty much but the imaging is very precise. I was kinda worried about the sound stage being so intimate but i am in love with the imaging being so accurate and clean.
before I did the mod and these things the bass and mid bass would mix together and overlap causing a muddy and inaccurate sound reproduction, but now they are properly separated and very pleasing to listen to as i can make out sub bass, mid bass, mids and highs equally.
- felt circle over the driver mod
- burned them in with grey, white, pink and blue noise for over 300 hours (when sleeping or not home)
- EQed them (helped alot) used HD-660s EQ recommendation on this list https://www.reddit.com/r/headphones/comments/9o2f5n/psa_oratory1990s_list_of_eq_presets/?st=jnogytxy&sh=e36c15ed
