    Default Sennheiser 598 will I be satisfied with them?

    I had a best buy 25 dollar reward zone certificate burning a hole in my pocket so I bought a pair of these from best buy.com. I never heard them so just going off what I've been reading over at headfi, plus someone on here just bought a pair, can't remember who it was. I am hoping they will see this thread and give me their review. I will be listening to these through my Oppo 105D I just got.

    I was debating on these or the 558's for the past couple of days. I first ordered the 558's thinking they would be ok then after a couple more reviews that I read, canceled the order and ordered the 598's instead. I hope I made the right decision thoughts anyone?

    I have the 598's also along with the Grado RS2 and I liked them both alot. I switch between the 2 depending on what I'm playing I like the SENN's better some times but prefer the grado's most of the time but there were like $500. but until I heard the grado's I like them over my AKG's 172 anf HiFimans HE-400's.

    I think you will like them a lot :)

    Thanks for your reply I know these are considered entry level audiophile headphones but I did demo some Momentums a while back and like how they sounded, if these sound as good as those, I think I will be happy with the 598's.

    I bought them and I enjoy them, but I'm not looking to replicate my 2 channel system. I just wanted good sound with a comfort allowing them to be worn hours on end, and they fit my needs well. Others at the recent gathering did not like them as much, but they are more critical than I am. I'd expect that if you like the senn sound, you will like the 598's. Consider getting a headphone amp for them - I had a bit of a sibilance issue until amping them.

    Yep DSkip it was your thread a while back that got me interested in them. I own several pair of in ear buds for the phone and IPods. I just wanted a decent pair of headphones, to lean back in the recliner and listening to tunes without turning on the stereo. I am already looking for a headphone stand for them any you can suggest? Jeez I hope I didn't start another obsession.

    I'm sure others will have some. My wife made a pouch or them out of very soft fabric that I place them on.

    I have some "BrainWavs" headphone stands I got for $19 at amazon , their clear quartz stands. also look up WOO headphones amps and check out their headphone stands...they look good but run about $60-$70!

    Thanks Voltz, I will be getting this one, on one of the reviews the guy says his HD 598's look good hanging on this down in the man cave. Thanks again for the suggestion.
