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.

Sennheiser's HD 598's are great looking headphones that fit well and offer up impressive sound. Whilst many people like to point out all the high points, I want to make a critical analysis and point out some of the other things I have come to find in my time with the Sennheiser HD598. Headphones from this manufacturer are somewhat known for a break-in period of about 100 to 200 hours, the equivalent four to eight days of constant running at slightly higher than normal listening levels. The theory is that this works the outer ring of the driver's diaphragm, and creates a more pliable suspension. I am not sure that I buy the claims, as no other headphone or loudspeaker that I own has ever changed. However, I've had mine breaking-in on a headphone amplifier and stand for approximately fifty hours, and this was my second listen since taking them out of the box. I've been using a couple sources and means of amplification, and I think that solid state headphone amplifiers will work better than tube amplification, unless the output is taken off a cathode follower setup with a sufficiently low output impedance. The HD 598's have an impedance of 50 Ohms, so bare that in mind when seeking a source. With this in mind, I will tell you a bit about what I am experiencing while i uncover some interesting casual observations. Read on...

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.

I have spent time with many a headphone, including Sennheiser HD 650 and 800s, Denon D5000s, Audio Technica W 1000x, Ultrasone PRO 900s, etc., and these HD 598s, may be, with sound, comfort, aesthetic and price all factored in, the absolute best value I have ever come across. Astonishing comfort, versatile in terms of what you throw at them, with a lovely, balanced sound with little fatigue.. Yes, they are made in China, but if you can get past that, and can find them for about $300- (they are considerably cheaper in the US), they may be the only headphones you ever need - at least for rock/pop, jazz and classical. They are open, so you do get a bit of sound bleed, but they really are a great pair of cans, which benefit from amplification, but perform admirably without it. 1/4 jack with a 1/8 adapter included for iPod use.

From initial use of these headphones, the biggest thing I could notice was how nicely put together they were. The synthetic leather, velour ear pads and burl accents really do give it quite the sophisticated look. I purchased these headphones after coming from the Sennheiser HD 515s and I am incredibly satisfied with the sound quality and the build. When listening to music of all kinds I can hear everything more clearly. The bass and deeper sounds feel more "real" and lossless audio sounds incredible. Audio of all types sounds absolutely great and extremely well defined. Additionally, listening for extended periods of time is considerably comfortable and the headphones are surprisingly lightweight. I would highly recommend these to anyone as an upgrade and I absolutely love them.

PRO:
- Great sound
- Easy to drive
- Extremely comfortable

CON:
- Not in love with the industrial design (this is a matter of personal preference)
- A bit too big to travel with
- Stock cable is ridiculously long
- 1/4 inch to 3.5mm adapter is inexcusably large

Overall the cons are not really cons and/or easily remedied. Recommended.

These headphones are some of the best sounding head phones available for the money. The sound that sennheiser makes is phenomenal. These head phones replaced my HD 555 and they are slightly brighter sounding than those were. These headphones dont have a lot of bass so they aren't for the crowd that is looking for that specifically.

These headphones are superb. They are without a doubt the most comfortable set of cans that I own. Sonic accuracy I find is a little off from the renown audio Technica m50x or Sennheiser HD 280 pro only because the mids are so prevalent which can also be the greatest thing about these. Vocals are unbelievable to hear, the sound stage is undeniablely huge with the ability to pick instruments clean away from each other. These are my go to headphones for long gaming sessions and movies. I perform so much better because I can hear footsteps and voices from what seems like a mile away. You will be lost in the detail that you otherwise missed before.

Bass is a lot of peoples concern with these, if you are a bass head you should look for a closed back headphone , or maybe something like the HD 600 if you have the money and want open back for recording and mixing. If you put a bass test song on these headphones they still will rumble your ears if that's your thing, the extension is low and 808s can be heard very well. But they are not beats and do have more of a balanced feel to them which again , is a great asset .

Overall an amazing value and if you are looking for headphones that can be worn for long periods of time with no fatigue these are your set.
