Sound & Vision Magazine

  • 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.

  • Summary: Note: This is my first audiophile headphones so i can't compare them to any other headphones out there for the same price.   These headphones are well designed, fit your head perfectly and are extremely lightweight. They are made out of plastic but they don't look cheap.
  • Pros: Amazing soundstage, extremely comfortable, Outstanding sound quality
  • Cons: Come with 6.3mm jack plug but you end up using them with 3.5mm adapter most of the time

  • Summary: Want to preface this by presenting this picture, I'm not a TROLL or a A-Hole, I just like to mock the fu** out of headphones I dislike. This time its time for the "Fehlerhaft HD598".   I'm a fan of the 580-600-650, I own all of them. The 598 is interesting because it sounds crude.
  • Pros: Natty, Removable 4 Conductor Cable.
  • Cons: Hits Excursion very early, Poor Headband Ergonomics, High Level of Distortion, Overrated and Overpriced.

  • Summary: Firstly, this headphone is the prime example of something I'd love to hate. I did like the HD595 as a non fatiguing headphone... and yeah the HD598 is better. But that ugly design and MAP restriction left a sour taste.
  • Pros: never harsh sounding, no sibilance, easy to listen to, wide soundstage
  • Cons: bass rolls off, not very detailed, a bit muddy, dark sounding, overpriced

  • Summary: I got the Sennheiser HD-598 based on all the existing rave reviews. It's amazingly comfortable. That's all the good I can say about it. I just hate the sound.   Okay, I am no "audiophile". I am not using these headphones on any fancy sources. First device is my laptop...an MSI GE70.
  • Pros: Comfort
  • Cons: Too much seperation, distance, and empty areas. No "immersion".

  • Summary: The HD 598 is a terrific mid-fi headphone. They sound very natural and almost effortless. They are extremely comfortable headphones. Also, they look like a luxury product. These are excellent for gaming and watching movies.
  • Pros: Airy soundstage, sparkly treble, slightly lush mids, neutral bass, comfort, great looking, serious bang for the buck.
  • Cons: Mild upper mids coloration preventing them from sounding totally natural.
