I'm on the same boat as you, HD 58X vs HD 6XX. I also own the M40X, which I use at work, but looking to replace them with either the HD 58X or HD 6XX. If you don't have an amp, and don't plan to buy one in the near future, go with the HD 58X. Also, for using them with your phone or mobile device, the 58X are probably the best ones to get without needing an amp to make them sound better. The info I've gathered tells me that although there are some differences between them, the 6XX really needs an amp to shine, while the 58X are more "fun" and easier to drive with any device. So, get the HD 58X for versatility, portability, and simplicity. That's what I'll probably end up doing sometime today. Or tomorrow. Or when I make up my mind and decide! Best of luck!

Thanks for the feedback, I actually ultimately decided on the HD 58X after doing some extensive researching and saw some comparisons such as to the HD 600s, 650's and even the 660 S/6XX so I think it's the best bang for your buck and I hope I receive it soon. Can't wait to try it out; it'll be my first open back headphone!

How to connect my laptop to DROP + THX AAA™ 789 LINEAR AMPLIFIER
I have the Focal Elex. I plug it into the mini plug audio output on my HP laptop and listen to Youtube music, and some Wav tracks saved on my computer. How do I connect the following unit into my laptop to improve my listening experience? Do I need a special cable that goes from my laptop into the DROP + THX AAA™ 789 LINEAR AMPLIFIER ?

CTH + SDAC is on the fritz. Can someone help?
So I've been using my CTH + SDAC for a couple years with no problems. However, within the last month or so, I've been running into a few issues: some hissing in the right channel (which is only really audible at 0 volume) and sometimes there are clicking sounds from the box during which the sound cuts out. It seems like it's struggling to stay fully active for some reason. I just bought a replacement 6922 tube to see if that would fix the issue. It seems to have solved the hissing, but there's still intermittent clicks that cut the audio. It's the same clicking sound that happens when the unit's LED changes from red to white and allows audio through during normal operation, but it will happen repeatedly and quickly in succession, without the LED changing, and the audio will go in and out. Has anyone had this issue or know what's going on?

DAC/AMP with 58X Jubilee and Shure MV7 XLR
I'm trying to find a really good sounding DAC/AMP to run my 58X Jubilee's and my Kanto YU2 powered speakers (preferably a button to switch between outputs) and a XLR mic input for my Shure MV7. Any recommendations? PS: I play FPS games (so want the advantage there) and listen to all sorts of music that I want to hear the depth and details of (Classical to NIN/Black Keys).

The upcoming Drop HD 800 in the works vs my existing Drop Focal Elex
I'm very interested in the upcoming custom Drop HD 800 https://drop.com/buy/drop-sennheiser-hd-8xx-headphones#overview. I'm aware some noted mastering houses use the older HD 800(S?) so that peaks my interest in them. It seems the Senn is sometimes used to identify any treble artifacts in tracks. I currently use the Elex, and I really like the relaxed, fairly accurate sound. 10 months of use now, and I just had the left driver fail. Drop is sending another new set as I type. I feel like I'm dealing with a finicky product with the Elex, and that is a drag, but the sound is working and I enjoy them. Oluv, on Youtube, compared the Elex and the HD 800S. The Elex was better in some ways, though some felt otherwise. I guess I could sell the Elex if the Drop HD 800 smokes it. I see that I can return the Drop HD 800 if I don't like it, so I just ordered it. Shipping in November 2021.
