I already own the 58X. Is it worth getting this, too? Or should I get something more different like the HE5XX?

Depends entirely on you and what you're looking for, the 6XX's are a step up in detail and clarity, and have strong mids, if that sounds like what you want then give em' a shot, you can always return them. The 5XX's I can't speak for because I have never heard them except to say I have heard they have some odd qualities and aren't everyone cup of tea, but some people really like them. The 4XX's on the other hand, I have and love, they aren't really a step up, more of a step sideways, but the quality (not quantity) of their bass is great! Another good option would be anything out of beyerdynamic's 770/880/990 range, they have great detail and clarity but are very bright, and are super comfortable with excellent build quality. Many people consider the 990s the Yin the the 6XX's Yang. I personally have the 880s because I wanted something a little different. The Sundara's are another excellent option that you can get from hifiman open box or B stock for $249, so not much more than the 6XX's and a lot of people love them (mine aren't here yet) and swear they are the best you can get under $500

I bought the THX AAA ONE and the Sennheiser TRRS 2.5mm headphone cable in the related installation for the HD 6XX. When the shipment arrived at my house, I found out that I couldn't connect a TRRS 2.5mm headphone cable to my THX AAA ONE amplifier. Please let me know if there is a way to connect a Sennheiser TRRS 2.5mm cable to a THX AAA ONE amplifier.
