The Sennheiser HD 598 is so comfortable, you will hardly know you are wearing them.
The price is a little steep, but well worth it. The adapter doesn't seem to fit on as many things as you may wish.
Over all, this headset is a great piece to own; people seem to love it. They say it's a little tight when you first get it, but after a few days you couldn't be more comfortable with it on. It is great for sound and for wearing for long periods of time.
Sennheiser HD 598
Enjoy comfort like never before
Sennheiser has long been known as the electronics company that melds affordability with quality in a way so that everybody, no matter their background, can enjoy top notch audio without breaking the bank in the process. So it goes with the Sennheiser HD 598 Headphones, the latest entry by the beloved company.
Though the HD 598 is beautiful, looks are way down on the list when it comes to quality headphones. Aural capability is the order of the day here and, luckily, the HD598 definitely delivers on that score. The headphones come with Sennheiser's beloved “E.A.R.” technology, which stands for “Eargonomic Acoustic Refinement”. The sappy pun aside, this technology actually is quite grand. It is set up to channel audio signals right into your ear while removing interference and outside noise. Combine this with the similarly high tech Dufol diaphragm (which eases distortion) and you've got a sound system that can't be beat.
Though sound is of the utmost importance when shopping for headphones, one must also think of comfort because, after all, the headphones will be pressed against your ears for long amounts of time. Thankfully, Sennheiser certainly took that notion into consideration. The ear cups are covered in a sleek and lush velour that makes them a dream to wear. The headband is also cushioned to further enhance the extreme comfort for the wearer.
At first glance, one might think that the HD598 is bereft of extras and special features. After all, it only comes with an adapter. But the truth is that the headphones are actually chock-full of features that are contained within. In addition to the EAR technology, there is also a very advanced neodymium magnet system inside the set which further enhances the listening quality. Compressed cellulose fleece is also found inside the headphones, which works in conjunction with the Dufol diaphragm to eradicate distortion of all kinds.
The Sennheiser HD 598 Open Circumaural Headphones may be the company's finest hour yet. With a massive amount of features all combined within a price tag that is under three hundred dollars, one finds it difficult to recommend any other headphones as of right now. Sennheiser has truly found a winner with the HD 598 and we can only look forward with baited breath to what the company will roll out next.
