Why has the price dropped so much on these - an older model is still almost £160?
#2
whats the difference between these and the 598?

These have a bit more bass and the treble is a little less pronounced. The 558's can easily be modded (remove foam section in pads) to make them almost the same as the 598's.
For this price they are a steal tbh. I just can't justify buying more headphones though since I already have similar sounding cans already.
Heat added !

They are so cheap that if u keep em a few years you could still prob get all your money back.
I have about fifteen pairs. I get reminded that I only have one pair of ears :p

Yeah I know,I used to have these,sold them when I had a clear out,but still have HD600's, AKG 612's and GMP400's which all sound similar and better tbh,so really can't justify,now if the deal was for some half price planar cans then it would be different :p
But these are tremendous value for those looking for a quality open headphone !

The new 559 etc, these are discontinued.

This is a good price for these phones, but I am as usual voting Prime only deals cold, as the deal is not available to me. I suggest non prime members do the same

Don't you know anyone with prime who can help you buy a pair if you really wanted them? I would buy you a pair if you were nearby. No point voting cold, mate.

Voting cold because you don't have prime is a bit counter productive, just move on to the next deal.

Voting cold because it's a prime only deal is a valid excuse for them, that's the point of the site. I voted hot because it's a good price, but I won't be buying them.

So you are basically saying "vote cold" on any deal that we can't get personally ??? There is no Morrisons near me,but if there was a good deal in their stores I would still vote hot,even though I couldn't get it personally 8)

I don't think anyone has the guts to post a HUKD on planars :D
Premium/boutique cans are rarely discounted, my current faves are the Focal Elear.

Great headphones for indoor, private use. If you're after some headphones for the daily commute, AVOID. The noise leakage on these is unbelievable, you could almost use them as a stereo system if you wanted lol

Thanks, I'll take a look!

Just got these delivered, hmm not really impressed.
The audio clarity is good but not enough bass. Thought the bass would be better.

Are the 598's better for bass?
#26
I think these are meant to be more bassy than 598 so I doubt it. AD500x are a decent pair of open backs but they tend to be more expensive here in the UK. Beyerdynamic DT series is however pretty good, if you're alright with closed back I have a pair of custom one studios that I would highly recommend.
