Excellent soundstage for closed headphones. I am unsure why these are getting such bad reviews, likely competition companies buying and rating negatively.
Note: I used an OriGen+ amp/dac with these headphones.
So just for fun I plugged these into my computer directly instead of the amp/dac... WOW. I would have promptly returned them.
Distortion was terrible at max volume and it wasn't even that loud when compared to initial test.
So... is an amp/dac or dedicated sound card necessary for these? Absolutely not because they still turn on and function, however; sound terrible. These benefit dramatically from good amp & dac.
Tried the shorter cable with my amp and sound is garbage. That cable is meant strictly for mobile devices due to it having 2 rings on the 3.5mm jack vs. the normal 1 ring (messing with sound). Sennheiser really needs to include an adapter for the 1/4" to allow people to properly listen to these, I understand the low reviews now.
I am not an Audiophile by any means but I'm loving these cans. Got them on Black Friday for a killer deal of 60% off. Would buy at full price anyways. Only con i can think of is there is no mic. Would have loved to use these for PC gaming.
Update: after extended listening i have comcluded all my other headphones sound like garbage now. I have been spoiled by the 598C's. Its a shame. I really thought my other headphones were pretty good. Now ill likely never use them again.
I bought these again secondhand just a week ago and used the straight 1/4 inch cord instead of using the short one with an adapter and it was great.
For my fellow glasses wearers out there, these can get in the way or hurt if your frames are big, obtrusive and/or not flat. I have ray bans that lay flat on the sides of my head so thankfully I don't feel much discomfort with these on.
Anyway, the product is great. They're basically closed 598s but tuned slightly differently: less warm, midrange isn't as rich, but isolation is excellent and bass is a little tighter. Superb fit/comfort for a closed headphone after some fidgeting on my head.
Just wait for a sale or consider getting some secondhand because you may as well get the GSP 300 instead... you get a good quality mic for gaming and it's cheaper to boot. You just can't use that one in public without looking ridiculous.
-Need comfortable closed backs
-Need a first pair of "do it all" audiophile headphones (If you already own high end headphones it might be wise to stay away as these are emphatically entry level audiophile headphoens)
-Want something that is more musically tuned than studio monitors (monitors are more neutral and have less soundstage, while this gives about the best sound stage you can expect out of a closed back, and has a smooth tuning meant to be pleasant, non-fatiguing, and to facilitate enjoyment of music)
Disclaimer: I run this through a FiiO E10K DAC/AMP so I have no idea how this headset performs on other devices!
Could be a bit more aggressive when listening to metal but aside that, well worth the 109$ price tag I got them for!! I would choose them over my QC15-Sony's MDR-10BT other Sennheisers that ended up as a gift to others!!
Side note these are huge, I don't mind but some might...
