AROUND THE EAR AUDIOPHILE
From the Manufacturer
Not only are the HD 598 aesthetically pleasing to the eyes but they also provide an impeccable sound quality and unrivalled comfort. These beige-coloured open, circumaural headphones come with high-gloss burl wood parts and matching ear pads for a sophisiticated, premium finish. With Sennheiser's innovative E.A.R. technology, audio signals are directly channelled into your ears. These headphones also incorporate a special diaphragm geometry that minimizes intermodulation distortion while delivering an impressive frequency response range, plus a highly constant compressed cellulose fleece to hold harmonic distortion to less than 0.1%. And to accentuate the already outstanding listening experience even further, their high-quality leatherette headband and velour ear pads provide outstanding wearing comfort, even for long listening sessions.
Eargonomic Acoustic Refinement (E.A.R.) for High Performance
These high-end open circumaural headphones use E.A.R. technology for outstanding sonic accuracy and clarity. Sennheiser's innovative "Eargonomic Acoustic Refinement" (E.A.R.) design channels audio signals directly into your ears. State-of-the-art, advanced Duofol diaphragms deliver transparency and minimal distortion, while highly optimised, field-strengthened neodymium ferrous magnet systems yield an excellent dynamic response. A surround reflector creates an extended spatial sound field for the lightweight aluminium voice coils chosen for high efficiency and excellent dynamics. The special diaphragm geometry reduces intermodulation distortion, while highly constant, compressed cellulose fleece reduces total harmonic distortion.
For more than 60 years the name Sennheiser has stood for the highest quality products and customised solutions across all areas of sound recording, transmission and reproduction.

The sound is clear and very comfortable to listen to. I love hearing all the little details in music.
My favourite set of headphones but I only use these indoors since they're open headphones and leak sound quite a bit.
If you enjoy relaxing at home and listening to acoustic music. The HD598s are the right pair of headphones for you. Here are some great reasons why you should buy it:
-Great for relaxing at home and listening to music with world's ambience in coherence.
-They are open ear designed so your ears don't feel cramped and sweaty.
-Surprisingly great as Studio Monitors compared to closed back headphones. The kind of response and evenness across the frequency spectrum makes a huge difference. If sound isolation isn't a priority, these headphones give amazing quality in detail.
Here's what you shouldn't buy these for:
-Using in the library. (These are open ear. The sound will leak like crazy and everyone will hear whats coming out of your headphones!)
-On set sound recording (These are open ear, you want isolation headphones!)
-Bass heavy music. (The sound from these headphones are very clean and crisp. If you want bass heavy, I would recommend going for closed-ear designs so the bass really pumps into your head.)
Like most people, we all want the best for ourselves. This product is fairly popular in the grey market and hold their value as high-end Sennheiser headphones. If you decide that you want to upgrade, you could sell these back out on Kijiji or craigslist for a bit of money back! (Or just give them to your sibling because you're not heartless.)
Hopefully this review was helpful to some buyers!
Great build from Sennheiser, solid and sturdy, although hinges on the ear cups do not have much room for rotation. The headband is build so that its not foldable, so portability might be an issue if carrying the headphones around on the move might be an issue. Extremely soft headband and ear cups, I can go on for a full day without feeling it on the head. As someone who wears glasses, the pinch of the headphones is just right where I can't feel my glasses pressed up on my head. I have left these in my backpack without a carrying case (definitely do not recommend doing this) for a few times over the past few years and have no issues. I personally love the burl wood design as it comes off as a less childish and more of a mature look for me.
The sound stage is crazy for a headphone of this price range. It's an eye-opening experience hearing the mids and the airiness of a high quality open back headphones. The accuracy of the mids is second to none compared to any other headphones within this price range. As an avid listener of rock and acoustic music, the guitar is extremely crisp and the airiness opens it up as if it is a live performance. The high range is also extremely accurate with the tiniest almost unnoticeable leaking occasionally. The bass of the headphones are just a bit lacking without an amp even for a balanced pair. When paired with an amp, the bass can definitely be brought up if that is something to be looked at. Overall, amazing sound stage and airiness plus top notch sound accuracy.
The 598s comes with a 3-meter long non-coiled cable, which can be bothersome for individuals to carry around.Read more ›
The gold plated hardware and 3.5-to1/4" gold jack was a nice addition, and will allow the user to get them playing music right out of the box. Each set of headphones features two security authentication codes to ensure you are not buying a fake set. They have a 2-year warranty and the good customer service that Sennheiser is known for.Read more ›
