These headphones come highly recommended by me. I simply cannot get enough of these for only $129. As others who enjoy these have expressed in their reviews, I simply cannot get enough of them for only $129. When I bought them, they were a real bargain.video review

Hey guys. Just got mine and noted it's made in Ireland. Did they move back the production to Ireland or did I get an old stock?

Yeah I'm not worried about the quality difference, more concerned that I might be getting a really old stock. Turns out that's not the case.

I recently got the 6XX and it has a sticker on the box that says Made In Ireland. I don't think it's an old box because the original 6XX box had "Made In Ireland" printed on the box (no sticker). The initial wave of Romania 6XX had "Made In Romania" on a sticker, covering up the Ireland printing. Then they started printing "Made In Romania" on the box without the need for a sticker and now we seem to have a fourth variation with a "Made In Ireland" sticker covering up the Romania printing.

These are currently listed as $129, down from the usual $170. Is this a temporary sale/discount or is it permanent? If the former, until when is it discounted?
After Christmas sale, to entice people who got gift cards! I’ve never seen the headphones this low, and I work as Sennheiser’s community manager.
I received emails with the beginnings of two other replies from you, but I wasn’t able to read them in full, as they were removed from Drop before I saw them. The expansion of the Tullamore, Ireland facility isn’t really on topic to this thread here, but if you’re seeking more information you can find the official statement here: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/increased-production-at-the-audiophile-center-of-excellence-in-ireland.961139/post-16711983 As far as the Romanian facility goes, I believe it will continue operating manufacturing other Sennheiser products, like microphones. I don’t know for sure, because I’m attached to the consumer division.

Can these run out of a Quest 2?

The Quest 2 is a virtual reality headset, thanks for the help!

I'm probably going to use the pc38x instead cause it has a built in mic and I don't want to pay another $100 for a wireless modmic

How good/bad are these for fps type games and trying to hear directional footsteps? Better or worse than something like a HyperX cloud headset?

There is no problem and you did not antagonize me at all. I was just thanking you for your infos and was surprised that you mentioned and made comparaison with other brands. I found this to be great for the community of DROP to have someone from Sennheiser. I saw that you edit your comments following this. You took it to seriously. I did remove the original comment cause it seems to offend you. Hope things are clear now. Have a good year.
I don’t want to stir battles 😅 But since I recently started also consulting for grell audio, I have to be able to talk about other brands now. Honestly, I agree with you, it’s really handy to know what you get from different brands. I’ve owned more headphones than my wife is happy with, and through trade shows and borrowing headphones from Dekoni when I made videos for them, so I’ve actually heard most circumaural headphones on the market (not IEMs though… there’s a million bazillion of those, haha). And before Sennheiser, I got their attention because I used to be an amateur reviewer, so there’s always an innate pull to describe other headphones too. On the other hand, I get why some places would moderate against an industry insider from talking about brands other than their own. I could be biased, start flame wars and angry discourse. To some extent, I think/worry that people will always find me biased, even if I leave Sennheiser. I also don’t want to start fights; they’re usually a waste of time, and there’s plenty of conflict and meanness in the world already without adding to it. However, I’m not interested in putting other companies down. People who anti-hype headphones make me cringe; rarely is another company actually doing something unethical, like cloning someone else’s work or trying to misrepresent themselves to customers. I believe headphones are like flavors of ice cream: there’s a lot of good ones out there and I might be drawn to different once depending on my mood (or circumstance), and even a more extreme flavor I don’t find attractive (such as lemon blueberry cake ice cream) I’ve learned to recognize might be really appealing to someone else. Sometimes I can enjoy an unexpected surprise, so I like to explore. Anyway, enough with the rant. Hopefully my position is clear :) Happy New Year!
my setup is: - hd580 precision (original from nineties) -hd58x jubilee (0001x1 number) and if i change 2 cables vs 2 phones i have 4 diverse sounds. what is better from your point of view!? (my amp is now "only" mayflower electronics o2 headphone amplifier)
I think many headphone comparisons are like ice cream flavor comparisons. Sometimes it all depends on your preferences and mood. For example, both the original HD 580 and HD 600 were designed with the intent of being diffuse-field, “natural” sounding reference headphones, with the HD 600 replacing the resonant plastic HD 580 grills with more acoustically transparent metal mesh, and design lead Axel Grell felt he got closer to neutral with the HD 600. However, the HD 580 still has strong followings on forums like Head-Fi and Sonic Visions, because some people really just like the warmth and smoothness of the older headphone. The much newer (about 25 years!) tuning of the HD 58X Jubilee has more bass than the other two and the HD 650, so many people like it’s exciting sound approach. I think it’s great you’ve got two contrasting sounds to enjoy when you’re in different moods, and I hope you enjoy having the power of choice :)

Is this worth getting if I already have the 6xx? Much difference in sound?

I'd say it's worth it. Different sound signature. 58X feels 'clearer' and brighter than the HD6XX.
Similar timbre, but the HD 58X Jubilee has “more” bass and treble. The HD 6XX is very detailed, but it’s smooth and has the treble reduced so that you can listen all day, while the Jubilee is more of an exciting sound.

will These works with a Astro a40 dac? I’m looking to still have the 7.1 surround sound. Also I’m new to this and it would be my first high end set of headphones. I don’t want the px38 cuz I don’t need the mic and hate the color of it. Thanks for your help.
The Astro Mixamp is powerful enough for the HD 58X Jubilee, and the Jubilee’s 150 Ω impedance will actually help reduce the Mixamp’s hiss a bit. It ought to be loud enough, but if you ever buy a better DAC/amp (like a GSX1000 or a Creative BlasterX G6, both which also do 7.1 surround, but the G6 is better for use with game consoles), you will hear more of the Jubilee’s clarity and potential.

i've been using these headphones daily since 2018 - the foam in between the earpads and everything else is starting to break down, how do i replace it and what do i replace it with? the earpads Drop sell don't seem to come with any replacement for the foam. i tried looking online but all i could find were people talking about the earpads, and not the actual foam in between those. thanks.

not really, I've tried different pads from high end to Aliexpress, none of them even come close to original ones in terms of audio quality. If you genuinely can't tell the difference then you probably have a problem with your ears.
The thin foam disk that covers the drivers is just a dust cover, intended to be acoustically transparent. You could call Sennheiser and ask their service/spares department if they can get you the foam disk, or you could also just get a thin, low density foam and use that. Possibly some very lightweight pantyhose?

How does this work with the new MacBook 14" ?

yeah, how well? With the high impedance port that they have now? Could be a portable solution?
Yes, it should work fine, especially since the HD 58X Jubilee has a bit higher impedance than the average portable headphone (but you won’t have volume issues, because the sensitivity is pretty high). I don’t have the new M1 MacBook (I got an M1 Mini instead), but the Jubilee sounds pretty good with my iPad Pro or even the humble Apple Dongle (lightning or USB C version). The Jubilee has modest power requirements :)
