Review: The Impressive Audiophilistic Sounding Sennheiser HD58x Jubilee

Back in 1991 a guy named Axel Grell joined Sennheiser to work on what would become the Genesis headphone of a series of headphones that as of today are still considered as a benchmark to test other headphones to; the HD600 and HD650.

So what was this headphone that started it all almost three decad...

Good audio can change your game. Recently picked up some Sennheiser HD58X headphones with a DAC/amp and Modmic and I can never go back to my Krakens. The directional hearing is amazing and sounds so much more detailed.

>(bass is important but I can’t stand bass-heavy headphones).

If you aren't looking for deep subbass, Sennheiser HD58X special edition headphones from drop.com are worth considering. They have a little bass emphasis, but a very balanced sound.

Sennheiser HD58X special edition headphones at drop.com. They have a well balanced sound that works great for rock. Also easy to drive. They should even sound fairly good with his smartphone.

Sennheiser HD58X special edition headphones from drop.com work well on most smartphones. They have a well-balanced sound.

For a more fun sound signature with extra bass, Philips X2HR. They are easy to drive.

E-MU Teak, Beyerdynamic DT 900 Pro X, AKG K612, Sennheiser HD560S, Sennheiser HD58X maybe with EQ (basically, an easier-to-drive 660S), HiFiMan HE560SE V4 with EQ (not that hard to drive, and great detail, but the mids may need a boost).

Sennheiser HD58X from Drop. Very durable headphone. The cables are replaceable if you break them.

And if you feel like your phone doesn't have enough power for it, grab a Meizu Hifi dongle

Sennheiser HD58X is very good for vocals. Drop.com used to give a $10 coupon for first time buyers. You can register on their website and see if that's still available.

If you don't know what kind of sound you're looking for or don't have an external amplifier, I'd recommend getting the Massdrop x Sennheiser HD58X. They sound pretty neutral and amazing for their price.

I also recommend the Sennheiser Hd58x with a decent dac/amp. I've used several different pairs of open backs such as the Hifiman HE-4xx, Beyer Dt990, and Philips shp9500, and the hd58x are by far my favorite and most comfortable pair of headphones.
