HD 598 Review
The HD 598's are a worthy headphone of the Sennheiser Brand. As this headphone is rated for audiophiles, I will be reviewing it at that level of sound.
Pros: Amazing sparkly high's, Very balanced, extremely comfortable
Summary: The Sennheiser HD-598 Open-Backed Headphone is a great value for how it's priced. Found mine used with only two hours use, and I must say that these babies are a joy to listed to for any most any genre of music.
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.
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.
Summary: I've had these for about 6 months and I find them to be outstanding. I think you'd pay double to get anything better. Natural, unhyped response. Nice full soundstage. VERY, VERY COMFORTABLE. I use them with a Fiio E10 as well as a Focusrite TwinTrak Pro. I have quite a bit 24/96 and vinyl.
Pros: Natural, airy, unhyped and detailed
Cons: None...except they'll make you realize just how bad MP3s really suck. But is that really a con?
Summary: The Sennheiser 598 is the new the ruler of the sub-$300 roost.
If you're looking for a headphone with an expansive sound stage that is at once both intimate and expansive...
If you can't shell out for a Hi-Fi set of cans like the HD600/650 and the necessary amp to drive them well....
Pros: Amazing performance for the price, easy as pie to drive, can scale extremely well, forgiving presentation
Cons: Polarizing appearance, needs an aftermarket adapter for 1/8" jack
Summary: I am a headphones aficionado and I enjoy collecting good headphones Just got this pair of incredible headphones today after biking for more than 10 km. Was going to buy another make but when I set my eyes on this one and it's the only one in the store, I seized it because I read such good reviews it...
Pros: So well balanced. No overpowering bass. So real and so natural is the sound. Pads are so comfortable. Stylish look
Summary: Hello everyone. I'm going to review Sennheiser's HD598 audiophile headphones, and give you an overview of my personal opinions on it. These seem to be one of Sennheiser's most esteemed set of cans, so if you really want to know what all the jazz is about, well here you go.
Pros: Light, EXTREMELY comfy, great mids & highs,
Cons: Bass lacks impact, annoying cable, no carrying pouch
Summary: I have gone through many different cans from Grados to Beyers, all kinds of IEMs and still yet I have never been able to part ways with the 598s. I have listened to many high-end headphones and while they are better they are 5 times the price!!
