I bought a pair of 595s the last time they were this price and here's why I think they're almost perfect...

Comfort = 5/5
They're 100% comfy straight out of the box (unlike the 650s which at first, can make your head feel like it's jammed in a vice). The felt pads are soft and gentle and the headband is adequately padded too. The actual ear pieces can be adjusted both vertically and horizontally to ensure you get the best fit possible.

Sound Quality = 5/5
I've got a pair of 650s and the sound of the 595s is of a similar quality. Although the 595s are definitely brighter, they deliver on the bass too. Listening to the bass guitar on Fleetwood Mac's `The Chain' and Pink Floyd's `Money' was semi-orgasmic. The 595s will let you hear with great detail the sound quality of original recordings, for better or worse!

Usability = 5/5
The impedance rating of 50 ohms means the 595s can be easily used with any audio device; mp3 player, laptop/ computer, TV and of course, hi-fi. I use my 300 ohm 650s with my hi-fi and my 595s with my netbook, computer and bedroom hi-fi.

Cable = 3/5
I like that the cable only connects to one side of the headphones, but that might not matter to you. However, because the 595s are so compatible with mp3 players and laptops etc (due to the low impedance rating), the cable should really terminate in a 3.5mm jack. But as it doesn't however, it means that almost all the weight of the 6.5mm jack and 3.5mm adaptor is outside the 3.5mm socket, thereby placing excessive strain on the socket's connection to the circuit board. I'm also not entirely happy that the cable is folded so much for packaging; the cable's now got lots of kinks and bends which I have to be aware of when I store my 595s after use.

Overall = 4/5
The 595s lose a mark simply because the cable terminates in a 6.5mm jack. If not for this, I would easily have given the headphones 5/5 because they really are 5 star headphones; as noted above, they're extremely comfortable and deliver high quality sound and although they might not sound as good as the 650s, they don't cost as much either!

If you want comfy and sonically articulate headphones to use with your hi-fi or for a variety of audio devices, and can live with the cable terminating in a 6.5mm jack, the 595's are the ones for you, because they're almost perfect!

however i do recomend a good amp to drive these


What amp did you have in mind?
#7
they are 50Ohm, pretty easy to drive, an amp is not a must but will improve the phones by about 5 - 10%
banned#8
terrific post wondhoek
What price do these normally retail for?
banned#9
windhoek, even
#10
Crazy price for some seriously good headphones. They normally sell for about £120 to £150. RRP is something silly like £180.

windhoek, have you tried a cable adapter like this:

just ordered these for some studio work =] not hopefully ill get a better grade then last year :P
#12
I got a pair of these last year to use with my imac for watching tv/movies and listening to music with and they are absolutely brilliant.. I think I paid around £90 for them so at 69.99 they are a brilliant buy! But yeah as mentioned above slightly annoying they don't end with a 3.5mm jack but a converter fixes that and the headphones are more than worth that minor problem!

too late, had it in my basket but went out of stock and propably end of game

I went to bed early last night so I'm only now just catching up on the thread.

@ Mascherano: I think £100+ is about the average for these headphones and considering the recent exchange rates, £69 is a fantastic price.

@ Alasrati: Yeah I've got a connector that's similar to that, but I don't use it with my bedroom hi fi because the connector cable drops vertically at the 3.5mm socket which puts strain on the connector and the 3.5mm socket. Perhaps I'm being too fussy, but I generally go on the principle that there's only so many times a cable can be bent/ unbent before its strands start to break.

I agree with you there Windhoek, I use the 595's with my computer and the the adaptor has already cracked the 3.5mm socket on my laptop,
