Sennheiser and Massdrop Announce the HD 58X Jubilee Headphone
Audio specialist Sennheiser and Massdrop, a community-driven commerce platform, announced the latest result of the companies’ ongoing partnership: the Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 58X Jubilee. The new exclusive headphone is a tribute to the Sennheiser HD 580 Jubilee, an open, dynamic headphone that helped pave the way for a successful range of audiophile headphones including the HD 600 and the HD 650. This recent cooperation between the two companies follows the success of the Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 6XX, launched in 2016 to the audiophile enthusiast community.
The HD 58X Jubilee contains design elements of the original Sennheiser HD 580 Jubilee, while incorporating a brand-new transducer and 150-ohm drivers — which require less amplification than previous driver platforms. This provides increased versatility, so listeners can experience reference-class fidelity while using either stationary or mobile playback devices.
“In Sennheiser, we have found a partner who is listening to our community and is able to respond quickly to input we receive,” commented Steve El-Hage, CEO and Co-Founder of Massdrop. “The design and sound signature of the HD 58X Jubilee were crafted based on this direct feedback, enabling Massdrop to quickly deliver on exactly what the enthusiast community is asking for.”
