Sennheiser HD 598

CNET
19 April 2014
  • Summary: The new HD 598's "wow" styling updates the classic Sennheiser look, and the sound has more detail and higher resolution than previous models. We recommend these cans to anyone looking for a pair of headphones with precision sound quality and a wide-open soundstage.
  • Cons: No storage case included.

Sennheiser HD598

Sound & Vision Magazine
27 January 2012
  • Excerpt: WHEN I FIRST SAW the Sennheiser HD598’s beige-and-brown color scheme, woodgrain accents, and air-cushioned headband, images of all sorts of 1970s products fl ooded through my head: Kustom guitar amps with “tuck and roll” covering, lacquered driftwood furniture, waterbeds, Roger Dean posters. Surely the unique look of the HD598 will attract some and repel others, but kudos to Sennheiser for daring to be different.

  • Excerpt: No need for any introduction here. Sennheiser is a well respected brand name in the audio industry and its headphones and in-ears are known to be loved by audiophiles. The new HD 598 headphones are an over the ear headphones with an open-air design. I'll get more into the open-air design later. Sennheiser decided to give the HD 598 headphones a more luxury look with a tan beige color and wood-like trims as well as matching brown ear pads.

  • Summary: For the money, the sound quality is amazing and visually you may want to show them off in the street but the cable and connection make them a little too impractical.

Sennheiser HD 598 Review

thinkdigit.com
8 June 2011
  • Summary: For Rs. 12,990, the HD 598 just doesn't push our buttons. It is expensive for what it offers, but sadly, there are very few competitors in this price category. It's certainly good enough for a non-audiophile, but if it were selling at a good 3000 bucks lower, we'd be more likely to bite.
  • Pros: Bass is a little pronounced, which benefits certain types of music, Fairly forgiving on poor sources and lower quality music, Fairly easy to drive
  • Cons: Midrange is not as sweet as we'd like, Soundstage is flat, A little overpriced in India, MRP is 50% higher than US prices

Sennheiser HD 598 – Very comfortable

etechreviews.net
2 March 2011
  • Excerpt: Sennheiser HD 598 feels really comfortable in the ear and according to me, it is the most comfortable headphone set I have ever seen to date. I had it on for several hours along with my iPod Touch and my ears didn’t feel any fatigue at all. The sound quality is quite clean and audiophiles won’t have anything to complain about here. The treble detail here is more than its predecessors and the tonal balance too is brighter.

  • Excerpt: I've just acquire it. The headphone is very balanced in terms of sound frequencies. Also, the spatialization is excellent. The headphones are light, the look is vintage. on the other hand, they provide almost no insulation (but in a home studio mixing ca matter to me). Also, the sound signal is relatively lower than many o...
