    Yes, sure! for its tight but still thick sub bass response and dynamics. None of what you have, 500 series or 600 series, is comparable to the HD58x in the sub bass and bass. But then again, its midrange, while still good, is probably the coldest amd dryest of all the 600 Series. You won’t get th sweetness amd emotion of the other 600 series in the midrange of the HD58x. it’s your pick.

    I have DT990 600 ohms for Metal and LIVE them. Get the HD 58X FIRST.

    THEYRE THAT good. Listening to Gojira Magma and it's mind blowing off my Magni 3. Drums are presented with a dynamic realism. I'm a drummer so I REALLY pay attention to how drums and cymbals are presented.

    I also like how the volume can be increased and they don't distort. They just keep taking the power in stride. I always start a new album with the volume low and it's surprising how much they come alive as the volume goes up.

    Mine definitely shipped out of New Jersey.

    Same here, from Edison, New Jersey. But it probably varies for others, particularly for people outside of the US.

    You’re missing the first leg of the journey - from the US to Frankfurt. It’s completely coincidence that they make their way through Germany, it’s DHL’s around the world economy shipping method. It’s happened with everything I’ve bought off of Massdrop - it leaves the US and travels through Europe before making its way to Australia. These are not being shipped from Germany,

    almost everything massdrop ships comes out of new jersey that's where the main warehouse is
  8. Assimilator702

  9. Th3Drizzl3

    Hmm that's weird, heres another order from massdrop that did seem to come from the US

    So basically, it's like the low mid/bass end of the 660, but with the mid response of the 580, and treble of the 595?

    I don't have much else to compare to, the high end phone you all seem to have, but after a bit of testing, I think I like the way my old Sennheiser Momentum renders the voices. More smooth, laid back and relaxed, specially female voices.

    Everything else is just wow. Everything seems layered, uncongested and detailed. Althoug maybe a bit cold, maybe not harsh but just a bit below that threshold. I'm gonna test a bit more, yesterday, when they arrived, I was dead tired to enjoy them fully.

    I did the felt mod also except I used green felt,attached it with Blu tac. I cut a perfect circle to start. I'm not sure if it improved anything but I don't hear anything that sounds wrong.

    I'll have to remove the felt and do more listening and replay the same tracks with the felts back in place. If anything did change it was not for the worse.

    I'm really digging these cans. I've been listening to my music for much longer stretches. These are extremely musical and enjoyable cans.

    You're effectively doing nothing with that felt. The felt mod is covering the central hole (which should be covered to stop dust crom entering the voice coil). Inifist cut ovals into their felt to partialy cover the hole.
