Sennheiser HD 598

Perhaps first impressions, and rather lasting ones are experienced upon first sighting this beauty. The producers of this headphone state not only that are they aesthetically pleasing to the eyes but they also provide impeccable sound quality and unrivalled comfort. Their beige-colored high-gloss burl wood parts and matching ear pads certainly impress a sophisticated premium finish.

Technically, these headphones are high-end open circumaural (over-the-ear) with E.A.R. (Ergonomic Acoustic Refinement) technology for sensational sonic accuracy and clarity.

As for personal use, this doesn't seem the optimum headphone if only used with an iPod or other alternative media player, mainly because such devices do not have enough power to provide enough volume even though the headphone provides super-clean sound and a wide-open sound stage.

There are two other aspects  that customers have pointed out, the first is that these headphones are not isolated, which means that they are not suitable for open spaces. The other aspect relates to the headphones Bass, as these headphones are not known for their hard hitting Bass, so if that is what you are looking for in a headphone, you are better off looking elsewhere.

Most customers rave about these headphones. One customer wonderfully said it: "These headphones will make you feel like you're actually getting a personal performance from any performer.

To compliment what these headphones are capable of, a headphone amplifier is also preferred and it really does boost the performance beyond what is expected.

What makes the HD 598 special?

What makes them special? They simply don't do anything wrong. The sound is whole, with nothing missing, vocals sound stellar on these headphones, all music sounds amazing with these. Classified as the best all-arounder, multi-purpose headphone most customers have ever owned.

They're comfortable even for large ears and you can wear them for hours without "hot ears", and yes, you can hear external sounds at home and in the office, but that's really not an issue when the sound is that good.

For the best listening experience, listen to high quality lossless FLAC, WAV files or CDs or else it will not sound as good. Mp3 is a simplified version of the song with a lot of missing instruments and sounds that you will hear when you listen to the high quality audio. If you have an Ipod or Iphone download the app FLAC player to play your FLAC files.

These headphones also provide the avid gamer a serious audio experience, especially with games that use High-Dynamic Range Audio (HDR) to be able to pin point even the most minute of details.

All in all, these headphones produce a crisp, clean and controlled audio experience, while remaining comfortable and classy at the same time. Conclusion is: if you listen at home, you will never go wrong with this beauty!
