Sennheiser HD 598 Review

15 September 2011
  • Conclusion: Based on the merits of sound quality alone, we would rate the HD 598 a 9.5. These cans sound remarkable, perhaps the best we’ve heard under $500. Unfortunately, their design and color palette are polarizing attributes which are sure to turn off some would-be listeners.
  • Pros: Remarkable Sound, Extremely Comfortable, Lightweight
  • Cons: Unattractive Color, No case/pouch, Awkward with portable media devices (long adapter)
