  • 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.

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. Also, their tendency to bleed sound and lack of noise isolation, while a by-product of their terrific-sounding open-air design, are problems that keep them from being a suitable solution for listeners on...
  • Pros: Remarkable Sound, Extremely Comfortable, Lightweight
  • Cons: Unattractive Color, No case/pouch, Awkward with portable media devices (long adapter)

  • 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 getestet: komfortabler Kopfhörer mit präzisem, detailliertem Klang

CNET
11 May 2011
  • Summary: Mit einem Straßenpreis ab 145 Euro ist der Sennheiser HD 598 definitiv nicht der Riege der Billigkopfhörer zuzuordnen, aber auch weit von den Preisregionen der Highend-Modelle entfernt. Dafür bieten die Mittelklasse-Klangschalen außergewöhnliches Design, detaillierten Sound und komfortablen Sitz für faires Geld – was will man mehr?
  • Pros: leichtgewichtiges Design ist extrem komfortabel, sehr dynamischer und detailreicher Klang, 3,5-Millimeter-Klinkenadapter im Lieferumfang
  • Cons: keine Aufbewahrungstasche im Karton, nur einschränkt für mobilen Einsatz geeignet
