Sennheiser HD 598

  • Summary: For the price, I would say it is a reasonable buy. Good to listen to music / videos. My child uses it to hear his online lectures. The Sound Quality is very clear, is fairly comfortable, but no significant noise reduction.

  • Summary: Sennheiser's build quality is a little off with this model, but given it's budget status, it's fully understandable.
  • Pros: About what you'd expect given the price, relatively comfortable, attractive styling
  • Cons: Given price, no real cons. Can sometimes feel a little cheap.

  • Summary: Decent headphones, I got this on sale for $25. The cushion around the ears are soft they do not block out alot of the ambient sound around you but...
  • Pros: Good Price
  • Cons: The feel, does not collapse for storage.

  • 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. I'm still saddened they didn't switch to a 1/8 inch connector as most devices use that nowadays. Another problem is the impedance varies among the frequency greatly, especially in the mid-bass.
  • 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: For relaxing with a nice glass of wine while reading a good book, the wash of music from the HD598 is very soothing. Sadly, its mid bass bloom makes my delicate lute music sound like guitars. In fact, everything seems to have the same over-weighty mid-tone about it, however it was recorded. Deep and full, politely sweet but never exciting.
  • Pros: Smooths my older, rougher recordings.
  • Cons: Makes all my music sound like it's been recorded in the same venue, on the same day.

  • Summary: Had these and couldn't wait to get rid of them. I agree with What Hi-Fi? who gave these 3 stars out of 5 and said they were dull and boring. These headphones do manage to suck the life out of any music. If you want something to help you relax then these are the right cans for you, but you will get bored and you won't feel much from listening to vocals and music, which for me is like missing the point of music. I now have Creative Aurvana Live!
  • Pros: Comfortable to wear, help you relax.
  • Cons: Makes your music sound dull and boring.

  • Summary: Ljudet är "rikt" men känns ändå inte riktigt där. Mina gamla HD555 har ett fattigare ljud, men är mer naturligt. Antog att ljudet skulle vara ungefär detsamma (då lurarna är i samma serie) men skillnaden är markant. Ljudet är inte lika "uppslukande" på något sätt. Svårt att förklara i ord (duh!) men ja, antar att detta är det bästa man får priset.

Schöngefärbter Klang: Gut für Surroundfans!

  • Summary: Ich habe den Sennheiser HD 598 jetzt ausführlich getestet. Das Design ist ungewöhnlich: Man möchte damit im Fond einer Luxuslimousine sitzen, deren Wurzelholzinterieur zu den Einlagen auf dem Bügel passt… Der Hörer ist sehr bequem, ein Wohnzimmerohrenschmeichler. Die Verarbeitung ist tadellos. Man kuschelt damit gern, zumal das Gewicht kaum auffällt.

  • Excerpt: Na domácí poslech ideální sluchátka! Doporučuji připojovat přes zesilovač nebo av receiver, vaše zvuková karta nemusí být to pravé pro dokonalý přenos zvuku, jaký si HD 598-ky zaslouží. Na hlavě sedí díky nastavitelnému hlavovému mostu dokonale. Nikde nic netlačí, vše doléhá, jak má a sotva poznáte, že je máte na hlavě. Komfort se povedl na jedničku. Stejně tak i zvuk...nejsem extra znalec, ale na kvalitu si potrpím a tady se mi dostala!
