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.

Great sounding headphones that are EXTREMELY comfortable. I can wear these all day and my ears don't get soar. They're also very light so you don't notice them on your head after a while.

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.

these are just amazing, absolutely worth the money!
sound is perfect for me, I listen all genres of music from trance to hard rock and metal and everything in between.
these are just perfect for me, they got a good amount of bass in my opinion, but definitely not too much.
I use them without an AMP on my smartphone which already sounds amazing, and with AMP/DAC (FIIO E10K Olympus 2) on my laptop even more! They're also very very very comfortable, like I wear them for 5hours or more straight sometimes.
best headphones I've ever had.

This year's black friday, these headphones were even CHEAPER than last year! (75% off) I snagged one before the sale was over. I actually bought these last year as well but had to sell them for other priorities so I'm writing this review with roughly 2 months of using them.

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 or somewhere with nobody around.
-They are open ear designed so your ears don't feel cramped.
-The sound produced blends right in with the atmosphere around you.
-Clean crisp sound. This works amazingly well with how well the sound meshes with the environment. Very soothing.
-The cups are soft and fuzzy and won't put strain on your ears even after hours of use (I slept with them and didn't feel any pain in my ear after.) Another great thing is they don't sweat like how leather cups make you sweat.

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. Don't be that guy.)
-Sound mixing (Obvious reason of the open ear design)
-On set sound recording (These are open ear, you want isolation headphones!)
-Crazy 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.)

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.

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.
