I am buying a 58x. And mainly used for music listening(likely long session wearing). Which of these will not negatively impact my listening experiences?

A KSC75

The KSC75 is a $20-ish thing from Koss (there's an 'x' model on here too with a thinner cable, mic and a dark blue color) that combined with the headband from a $5 Parts Express headphone and Yaxi's Porta pro pads, or by itself too,, will honestly do you about as well as the 58X and costs $36, but not as well as the 6xx. The 58X has more in common with the lesser 500 series models from the '90s than it does the HD580, HD600, HD650 or HD6XX, the thing should be priced a bit lower than it is ngl. I wouldn't even call it a Drop version of the 580, really. As for the pads for 6XX and 58X, you're honestly gonna want to keep your stock senny pads and then replace them with stock pads when they go flat in a year-ish at some $50. Alternatively, I've heard of using he-60 pads, which don't do anything super crazy, and can have about half of their foam taken out to roughly preserve the midrange. Pads are a pretty huge part of what makes a headphone sound the way it does though, so it's typically best to just run with stock.
