Product Description

The HD 598 headphones combine impeccable sound quality with unrivaled comfort. This elegantly styled over-ear, open back headphone features ear cups with high-gloss burl wood detail complementing premium metal mesh. Innovative acoustic engineering delivers incredibly natural, detailed and balanced sound. A high-quality leatherette headband and velour covered ear cushions provide outstanding wearing comfort for long listening sessions.

Sennheiser's innovative E.A.R. technology is featured in the HD 598. This positions the transducers inside the ear cups to channel audio signals directly into your ears producing a more realistic, spatial listening experience. The transducers employ a special diaphragm geometry that minimizes intermodulation and harmonic distortion while delivering high output and impressive frequency response.

Thanks for this, i was torn too, had the 558 on order and cancelled for these then i was thinking i would mod the 558 and maybe i should just buy them but one of the posts on that link:

"I wonder if Sennheiser has wised up to this and placed stickers on newer batches of HD558 to prevent the screws from being removed....else, warranty is void."

Just returned these two days after getting them from Amazon. Horrible cardboardy sound, totally disappointed. At work, we have several sets – AKG K701 and Sony MDR 7506 (both sensational), as well as AKG K702 (so-so) plus Bose SoundTrue (crap), thus some decent comparison was made, but Sennheiser HD598 came across as trully awful. Just my opinion, of course.

I have the HD518's and they sound good to me as they are my first decent headphones but they let too much noise in through the open backs. I can hear the PS4 fan through them still when gaming and if my family are in forget about relaxation. I am looking at some decent closed headphones to remedy this as I have just had to make do with a closed turtle beach headset I had kicking around for now to isolate any unwanted noise. I imagine the 558's and the 598's will be just as open so it's worth considering if you have a noisy household
