Not an audiophile myself perse, but asked someone about it when the 599 SEs were on sale for $100. He owns both, said that although he can tell the difference between the 58x and the 599s if he tries to, they sound similar enough that he doesn't have a preference between them for general use. He did recommend 560S if you want to spend a little more for better sound though. Having said that, audio is really subjective, ymmv.

I own both. The major differences are

- Jubilees clamping pressure is much stronger. I find myself using them less because of this
- 599s are more open, and thus a wider soundstage
- 599s have more bass, but Jubilees are clearer
- 599s are easier to drive and get volume out of
- Jubilees have slightly fatiguing highs whereas the 599s dont

For movies and games, I would always choose the 599s. For music the Jubilees, but not for long listening sessions.

One annoyance with the Jubilees for me is the dual wiring. It constantly gets caught on my chin when I try to put them around my neck.

Wired headphones.

This user probably has a massive skull. I have short-med length hair and have no complaints about comfort. In fact I can wear these with glasses.

Got these for about $140 or $150 about 18 months ago IIRC. The headband feels cheap and plasticy, but…

Comfortable and good balanced sound. Can't go wrong at this price point.
Thank you. Bought mine three weeks ago for $150 and I'm going to try to get the difference refunded.

Update: Drop refunded me the price difference with an email request.
I have both and I would say the X2 are better for gaming/movies as they have more bass, soundstage is great, and you can slap a v-moda boompro mic and you're good to go.

The 58X are better for music imo as they are more detailed and have amazing mids, so it's preference, really. I always switch out between the 2 headphones.

IMO these are the best headphones for the price. I recommend these over the 6xx for both sound and that you don't need a dac amp. I got them for $150 about 2 years ago and they are still my daily drivers.

These are my favorite pair of general use at-home headphones. Great-all rounders and I can hear others in the house easily.

Agree with this 100%. I've had them about the same amount of time and love them.

Easily these unless all you're interested in is bloated bass

I've been on the fence about spending the money on the 6XX. This is perfect and just about the same quality for nearly half the price. Really excited to get my ears on these with the hybrid velour ear cups.

for gaming and movies because of the soundstage, the X2s are better...they say the Sennheiser PC37X or new pc38x is good for gaming too
