Excerpt: For the price, it's amazing. As a classical music affictionado, this pair of headphones produces symphonic music beautifully. The sound is incredibly open, and soundscape is huge comparing to other headphones at this price range.The design may put some people off but I personally enjoy the...
Excerpt: I bought these headphones mainly because of the reviews. At first I thought about buying a Beat by Dr. Dre, but changed my mind when I read that these are fashion design more than good sound. Now that I have the Sennheiser I like the sound quality, although not sufficient insulate outside sounds.
Summary: The Sennheiser HD598 phones are an unusual color but they do sound excellent. Any shred of veil is gone now. These phones are lively, have long bass extension, real presence, excellent detail, good sound stage and are very easy to listen to for hours.

Summary: These are my first pair of audiophile headphones. After getting past the hype of audio technica's ath m50, I found these. I read reviews & opinions on youtube & Head fi, also a quite a few comparisons, & I went ahead with this one.
Summary: There's a lot of reviews on the HD598, so I'll just give a short simple review. Durability of the headphones are great, as expected from any high grade headphone. It's light and plasticky but don't let that fool you; it's DURABLE unless if you tried to smash it with a hammer.
To sum it up, I just prefer wearing them over my other 2 headphones.

Summary: Cable's like 2x too long. Apparently that's easily fixable. Sits nice around the ears and on the head for extended wearing, unlike on-ear. Sound leaks through the open-backs (in intense scenes in movies or crescendos in songs) but that means you can hear out, too.
Summary: There's no doubt that Sennheiser HD598s are "comfortable to use for long periods of time." Sonically, however, they are tiring on ears with their over-abundance of presence. There's about* 7 dB excess around 4.8 kHz — right around the range that ears are known find particularly harsh.
Summary: They sound pretty good for the ~150 I paid, but I don't know that I can justify paying any more than that. (Stay far away from MSRP) Lackluster build quality seems common for Sennheiser even on their higher end products.
Nice headphones for the “sale” price and sound very good ...

Summary: Nice headphones for the “sale” price and sound very good without a head-amp like when using my iMac or laptop. Against my HD700s or AKG K712 it’s obvious the HD598s they are not at the same level of sophistication and sound slightly artificial in direct comparison, obvious when using a high end...
