    Does anybody who reviewed or tested the 58X know if the driver housing is the same size and layout as the hd600 or 650? driver swapping would be nice since i like the colors of the 58x a lot.

    I'm waiting for an HD1000 Charleston version with whatever drivers they can shoehorn in there...

    Now there is a design of merit !

    Look like anything out there today (basic design architecture) ? There's a reason the finest cans have such a basic 'design' -headphone manufacture is not (as some seem to envisoin) rocket-science. There's valuable lessons to be learned from the past -moving forward.

    Does anybody know when this Sennheiser HD-5/6XX madness will ever end ? lol

    Happy 2018 to all ...

    Those "puffy" balls (those individual headband "foam pads" attached to the headband) on some Senn's (including Mass-poop's -oh, I mean drop's- 58X Jub. is the correct way in this type of headband design -as opposed to the single foam piece.
    (After time, the single foam type pads will compress so much it will impact the headphone's performance and listener's comfort level -that will deteriorate significantly.)

    Just a heads-up (pun) for any considering headphones with/without this design detail.

    Happy New Year,

    pj
    P.S> I edited this reply for clarity -hope it helped.

    Huh?!

    BTW, you’re missing a parentheses.

    At least he remembered the important stuff - bolding, italics, and underlining. I don't consider his posts successful until they have all three.

    Lol. Where's the missing parentheses ?

    pj

    Lol. Touche' !

    What a great start to 2018 ... (you guys are great -and funny) !

    Point taken.

    pj

    .... That and a Michael Jackson mask (oh, and the gloves) ...

    pj

    Hi Peter: The individual headband foam pieces -is there 4-6 on the headband ?

    That is a much better design than the single foam/sponge/padding on the headband -I don't know what to call it ? (Headband padding ?)

    Cheers,

    pj

    I just sold my HD580 to regret it immediately, and the drop arrived in due time. Can't listen to Grado's 325 after my beloved Senns.

    Would the 58X make a good first pair of open back headphones or should I consider something else first?

    Depends on what you are looking for and what you currently use. I'd say its probably a better choice than the HD600/HD650 since they are easier to drive but since I haven't heard them yet I can't give firm yes or no answer.

    Thank you for the insight.
