Price Point

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/1)

These headphones sound great and are very affordable, but just know what you are getting. If you're looking for some great sounding headphones to listen to around your house using a headphone amp, these would be a great buy. But if you're looking for something to take to the gym, or use at work you'll probably want to look elsewhere. Pros - Excellent sound quality

Sound Quality

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/3)

My wife disagrees, but I think movies sound punchier and more intimate on grado cans. And they have the side benefit of letting two people listen to something and just talk like nothing since they leak like mad. But again, all round? These babies, hands down.

Sennheiser HD 660S

(1/4)

It seems like pickings are slim. There's the Sennheiser MTW2 and while those are said to have the best audio quality for earbuds which is a plus from me, you can't use the left earbud by itself and people describe the ear-fit as being similar to the Jaybird Vista's and that actually terrifies me.

Comfort

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/2)

All-day comfortable with ease (they can get a tiny bit warm with the alcantara pads in a hot room, but not even close to unacceptable) and utterly zero squeaks or creaks (looking at you, Audio Technica AD700's) The one, ONLY gripe I have with them is the nice cable they have is too short for anything other than a desktop amp or device RIGHT in front of you. BUT, it's replaceable, and lots of companies make cables for them. Side benefit is you can get a balanced cable for them, and if you get a BTR5 as well, that amp has a balanced output option. So they can sound EVEN BETTER

Sennheiser HD 660S

(1/1)

I want to add that it's very important for me to find something that's comfortable to have on for very long hours; I'm able to wear my m50x's for 6+ hours and not experience any discomfort.

Fit

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/1)

It's not long enough for comfortable PC/ living room AV receiver use for me, so I ordered a replacement cable when I bought the headphone. The replacement cable is that red one that everybody else is buying. I clipped the "braided" part off, and now they're really cool looking red cables. They click really nicely into the headphones - better click than the stock cable

Sennheiser HD 660S

(1/2)

I have the hd 660s and drive them on a second hand LG V30 phone. This series has a quad dac of pretty good quality, so phone, dac tidal player all in one.

Durability

Sennheiser HD 660S

(1/1)

It is more durable and more ergonomic. The "paper" foam between the driver and the outer shell inside 58X and 6XX is replaced with complete metal one. It is quite obvious when you look inside the shell. Also, the earcups on 660S "swivel" a little while 58X and 6XX is firm in place
