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
