The quality of these headphones is good, but not impressive. From the reviews I read, and the $xxx price tag, I was expecting more from these headphones. But I was sadly disappointed when my $xx Sxxy headphones sound just as good as these.

The most comfortable headphones you will ever wear

As others have said, anyone else even within 20 feet of you can hear these headphones. Take my word for it, they are not over exaggerating! Unless you set the volume pretty low, it can even annoy those in another room ; The sound quality of these...

SENNHEISER HD590 3.5mm/ 6.3mm Connector Circumaural Headphone

 

I have owned these headphones for over 3 years now and they are truly amazing. You can hear every nuance of the music and it really revolutionizes the way you listen. These are no good for clubs or D-Jing though and best enjoyed in a quiet environment...

Amazing sound quality ; Extremely rugged design and stellar craftsmanship ; Can be used as earmuffs during the winter

These are the most underated headphones in the world. The reason is that most of the headfi forum users love the classic HD600, which is flatter, less bright plus better mids. Everything started when Headroom ( major amp and headphones vendor)...

Product Specifications

Sennheiser has extended its range for the audiophile: enthusiasts of classical music will want to try the open-back HD 590 Prestige. Using selected quality materials, these headphones have been designed with unadulterated listening pleasure in mind, making them the top model of Sennheiser's 500 Series. The HD 590s feature large-surface "Duofol" diaphragms, a special diaphragm consisting of two foils welded together to reduce standing waves to an absolute minimum. A new transducer orientation ensures better localization of sounds and a superbly natural sound reproduction.
