Sennheiser HD 598

Sikh64, Crutchfield

  • 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: 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. Coming from Senn I was surprised by how bad it sounded..the first day I got them I was certain I had a defective unit, so I went to Senn and was able to convince them I had a faulty pair.
  • 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. 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: 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.

great quality headphones but absolutely no environment noise protection

  • Summary: Great quality headphones but absolutely no environment noise protection. You can hear everything around you just like you would if you weren't wearing them. While this is great if you have to wear headphones and talk to somebody it also interferes with the quality of the sound you are listening to. On the comfort side they are excellent.

Alright for the price

  • Summary: I been using Sony XB500s for the past 3 years and decided it was time to get a replacement for them. I saw these at sales price and decided they were going to be my new "main." Sadly, I am kind of disappointed with the ergonomics as my ears start hurting after less than an hour. I am not an audiophile but the sound from this headphone feels slightly "distant." Overall, this product matches the price i bought it at. Nothing more nothing less.

Acceptabel

SnowJim, Prisjakt

  • Summary: Jag har nu gått igenom totalt 6 hörlurar som alla passade in på vad jag sökte. Värt att notera är att i början av testet tolkade jag högre diskant som också mer klarhet och detalj. Det visade sig dock snabbt att 'ven här kan det bli för mycket för öronen precis som med för mycket bas. Testen är gjorda med följande : - Logitech Z-5500 kopplad till stationär dator av finare slag - Yamaha RX-A1020 kopplad till Intel NUC - Mp3(hög kvalité), och Spotify Beyerdynamic DT990 ohm...

Das hätte ich so nicht gedacht...

John Springfield "bionic6", Amazon

  • Summary: Nach verschiedenen Reinfällen bezüglich Kopfhörern und einigen Rücksendungen an Amazon (sorry) hatte ich dann endlich meinen heißersehnten Sennheiser HD 598 bekommen. Hammer! Feiner Sound, leichter und angenehmer, luftiger Sitz am Kopf. Meine parallel getätigte Bestellung - den ATH M50x von Audio Technica habe ich nach diesem Hörerlebnis direkt storniert.

Guter Kopfhörer mit einigen Mankos!

Century, Amazon

  • Summary: Nachdem ich nun einige Modelle der Sennheiser-Kopfhörer durchgetestet habe (im grunde die Preisleiter von Unten nach Oben geklettert) und auch einige Kopfhörer mein Eigen nenne, bin ich nun beim HD598 hängen geblieben. In vieler Munde gilt dieser ja nicht nur als einer der optisch außergewöhnlichsten Kopfhörer mit seinem beigen Farbton samt Wurzelholzelementen, sondern auch als einer der Klanglich besten seiner Gattung.
