Summary: Sennheiser launched these headphones for $200 and now they are only $70! For this price it is a great deal. I got my pair for $50 and I use them every day walking from classes in the cold. Pros: Quality design all around! Soft textured metal housing. Covers ears completely without being big and bulky. Soft padding. Cord is on the right side which is good for some phones and laptops. Sturdy cable with angled connector. Folds up and ear cups rotate. Great sound stage!
Pros: Look great, sensational sound...very clear mellow range, not boomy or harsh. Extremely comfortable and adaptive to personal sizing. The white color is more an oyster off white color, very rich looking. Build quality is excellent.
Cons: Generous 10" cable is a blessing and a curse.....it's a lot of cord to be aware of. May not be for some, no problem for myself.
Pros: I paired these with an ASUS Xonar Essence STX with the primary focus being for gaming. I was absolutely floored when I first tried these. With Dolby Headphone, it was like an entirely new world of gaming. The sound quality is of such high fidelity it sounds just like I'm listening to my 5.1 speaker setup on my TV! If you're a gamer looking for that extra immersion, these are worth every penny.
Summary: Here's why: Out of the box these headphones will have a 1/4" connector (big plug for stereo systems) and a 1/8" adapter that connects directly to the 1/4" (what your IPhone uses). So if you are connecting this to your laptop or iphone you are adding the equivalent of a solid 3-4 inch lever on a fragile output jack.
Pros: The headphones sound terrific and they look great. I listen primarily to Jazz, however I noticed that since I have had these I've gained a greater appreciation for other genres, specifically classical.
Cons: Here's my biggest suggestion, get an extended adapter, even if it's ten or fifteen dollars extra.
Pros: A great pair of headphones. To start with Sennheiser is a name that I have come to trust in headphones. They tend to make 'phones with a very clear tonality and great sound stage. These headphones, I am happy to say, fit this trend.
Pros: awesome and accurate soundstage presentation. works really well with warm DAC/AMP combo. however, might be a bit too bright on DAC/AMPs that emphasis's too much on the treble or mid. the soundstage is extremely accurate that it gives more depth and distance attenuation to the recording. even better than my AD700. in comparison to AD700's soundstage, the AD700 definitely sounds wider, but lacks frontal and rear depth. the resolution of soundstage is also better with th...
Summary: These are as good as headphones, or cans, get unless you spend a great deal more money. The HD 598 reproduce sound very accurately without favoring bass, mid, or treble like most cans do. These are so good they are considered audiophile entry level cans, you would have to spend a great deal more money to get a better can. They have a wide sound stage that gives the listener the impression of listening to a live performance.
Pros: Sound Stage, high, mids, lows, all perfect, overall unbelievable... ESPECIALLY FOR CLASSIC MUSIC!! For the price I paid, which is around $180, IT WORTH EVERY SINGLE PENNY OF IT! Great design, luxury sports car style, at least it is for me.
Cons: NONE, well, if they are able to provide a case or something so I can carry it around without worrying breaking it.
