58x or 6xx, as someone trying to not spend too much which would be the best choice?

The 58xx is 50 bucks less but the people in the reviews say it's just as good as the 6xxs, but with a different sound to them (the reviews weren't that clear abt this ._. )  I'm willing to compromise on price but not sound quality, if the 6xx's sound 50 bucks more than the 58x then they win.

IMHO The HD58x are slightly better than the HD6xx due to an improved Bass response closer to the Harmon ideal curve. https://www.headphones.com/pages/measurements-and-frequency-response

I think if you got other good audio equipment like external DAC/amp then just go with 6xx. 58x seems like a good choice if you are using them with a dap or phone. Bass difference is only noticeable to me listening to edm music otherwise not really

I like the 58x. To my ears (your ears may differ), I like the slight boost in bass the 58x has over the 6xx. With the 58x you are less likely to feel like you need an amp to power them. The 6xx does do other things better so it still is a good choice for some. I think I've heard people prefer 6xx a lot for vocals or classical music.
