placed an order for these today so they should be coming sometime next week. it was a tough decision between these and the ue 6000s, but I'm hoping that these don't disappoint, particularly in the comfort factor.
So I actually read through most of this thread to try and decide whether or not to get these. After doing so, I'm left a bit confused.
Are these worth it or even above their $200 price point?
Are there similarly priced, or even cheaper, options that are equal or better in overall audio quality that are as comfortable?
so how low in quantity is the bass the hd 598's exactly? how does it compare to something like the Skullcandy Aviators (which I thought was sufficient in bass quantity) or the Citiscape Uptowns if anyone has heard either of them? Or maybe even the ultrasone 580s?
i'm a bit new to the over ear game so i don't have many reference points, but any help at all would be appreciated.
As a general question in cases when someone wants to buy something and asks you for your advice or opinion on it - be it a pair of headphones or speakers or whatever - how far can you advocate your recommendation (that differs from theirs in this case) before you become overbearing or imposing?
I'm completely with you on this one. The only reason I can think as to why these constantly keep popping up is because people feel better about themselves for putting down stuff that a good number of people like. But surely people aren't that petty, right?
