Color: Burl Wood Verified Purchase
The Sennheiser HD 598 considered to be a classic headphone, one of the most bought headphone for a reason. It excels at all frequencies, from the lows, mids, and highs. An amazing sound, combined with superior comfort, makes this one of the best headphones in this market. Let s take a look at the comfort of these headphones first.

Comfort:
The first time I put these headphones on I have noticed that the headphones provided the optimum clamping force. I think I have a medium sized head, and the headphones only moved slightly when I shook my head, and they never fell off. Some people have complained that the headphones are a bit too tight, an easy solution to loosen them is to stretch them over a pile of books or a pillowcase. I have used headphones that are too tight, like the V-Modas, and some that are too loose, but I think Sennheiser did a great job with these headphones. Now let's move onto the sound quality of these headphones, the bass, mids, and highs.

Bass:
The bass was something I was not expecting to impress me. But I think Sennheiser has done it again. The bass on these headphones are not meant to create a big thump, but rather and naturally gently support the entire song. The bass on these headphones also extend very deeply towards the sub-bass, but does not overwhelm you with it. The bass smoothly extends the mids, and creates a very sonorous atmosphere for classical and instrumental music. This is especially true from drums in big orchestral pieces of music that support the entire song. This is very notable in: Johann Sebastian Bach - Brandenburg Concertos No. 3 In G Major, BWV 1048: Allegro, Edward Elgar - Pomp and Circumstance, Op.

Build Quality/Design

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.

Sound

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.

Accessories

The 598s comes with a 3-meter long non-coiled cable, which can be bothersome for individuals to carry around.

Very comfortable but I'm used to better sound. Top end extension is lacklustre but bottom end is decent provided you aren't looking for thump. Mids are there, and smooth but not always the most accurate. There is no Beyerdynamic 4kHz sibilance so that's a BIG pro compared to the DT990s.

These are very easy to get along with and a great intro into open headphones for most people. There's lots of room to improve but when these go on sale, they're a great value.

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.

The HD 598 is my first attempt at entering the higher end headphone market.

I would say these were absolutely worth the price, and at the usual sale price; Everybody should own a pair of these.

Whether you are listening to music on your computer,phone or high end stereo system, the HD 598 headphones sound great.

I would advise that certain cell phones may not have enough power to properly drive these.

Absolutely wonderful set of headphones. Bought them to replace my Audio Technica ATH-M50. These are FAR more comfortable, and can be worn for extended periods of time. The highs aren't as overpowering as the ATH-M50, giving you a slightly more balanced sound. They're a bit more flimsy than the M50s and feel cheaper, but I suppose that's why they're also much lighter than the M50s and more comfortable to wear.

I recommend these for anyone and everyone looking for an extremely comfortable, great sounding headphone.
