Sennheiser HD 598

 

The superb-sounding Sennheiser HD 598 offers some of the best sense of space we've heard from $250 headphones.

Superior audio experience. Excellent balance of the entire frequency range with a strong sense of space. Very comfortable.

Light on accessories. Retro color scheme not for everyone.

The HD 598 isn't the only pair of headphones with an open, airy sound. If you're budget is (extremely) flexible, the Grado GS1000 is legendary. In this price range, if you're looking for a similar sound signature, but want something more...

Sennheiser HD 598 review

 

The Sennheiser HD598's high-gloss burled wood accents, thickly padded headband, and ear cushions all lend a luxurious feel to the design. The tan-and-beige color scheme is a nice alternative to Sennheiser's usual gray or black finishes. In addition to...

Lightweight German design is extremely comfortable; highly dynamic and detailed sound; 3.5mm headphone plug adapter.

No storage case included.

The new HD 598's "wow" styling updates the classic Sennheiser look, and the sound has more detail and higher resolution than previous models. We recommend these cans to anyone looking for a pair of headphones with precision sound quality and a...

Sennheiser HD 598 HEADPHONES

 

The Sennheiser HD 598 are comfortable open-back headphones with good studio quality sound. They're well built and feel durable but offer no control options for your audio. The open back design also leaks a lot of sound and doesn't block any ambient...

Lightweight and comfortable design. ; Sturdy build. ; Good audio reproduction.

Poor noise isolation, by design. ; Leaks a lot of sound, by design.

Sennheiser HD 598

 

We typically scoff and prepare for the worst whenever we see the word “audiophile” in the marketing for any headphone that we see cross our desks, because we've been exposed to some of the crazy things that people will buy simply because it's branded...

Superb frequency response ; Very comfortable

Not at all portable ; Isolation is all but nonexistent

Stunning headphones, another good showing from Sennheiser.

Sennheiser HD 598 Headphone Review

 

The affordable Sennheiser HD 598 is styled differently from its famous and more costly sibling, the HD 600, but is just as beautifully voiced and just as insanely comfortable.

Musically coherent sound; Comfortable velour earpads; Moving parts don’t creak

Not especially rugged; Limited low bass; No carry case
