I’ve since come around on the 558, and owned a pair that didn’t fall apart. Also owned the 598s for a while and loved those too…although I don’t have a lot of room in my collection for open headphones. But that’s just my thing.

I really wanted to like the Lola. I liked the Mo-Fi for a while, but then I gave them to my dad since the headband was better suited to the shape of his head. He kept them packed up in their bag in a drawer for six months, and when I made him take them out, the amp no longer worked, which was strange!

Blue refreshed both of those headphones recently and created whole new names for them, and also launched some with Planar Magnetic drivers. It’s interesting, but I’m kinda sad to see the old names go as they were fun and weird.
