By the way you guys should try the J. Meier setting of the bs2b crossfeed for the 598 SE. The sound is a match made in heaven for these cans IMO.
Can anyone post any free albums that sound like this style? https://bauer1.bandcamp.com/
ahh so the power handling is not just an issue with the SE. Good to know. Weird though because I never noticed my old 5xxs having a problem with volume. Maybe I am just noticing this now coming from Grado E series cans which can play insanely loud before distorting. Sonically speaking, I am happy with my SE though. I find them way more musical than Grados in general due to the smooth long term listening factor. Add to that the 598 is a match made in heaven with the JMeier...
I believe in both burn in and manufacturer inconsistency. Both play a part in this Beige vs SE saga I think.
Those seem to be very random impressions there so it may just be a batch to batch thing and not due to them being supposedly different.
Are your 598s the SE model or the standard beige one?
It was with any source since its way down low around 4khz or so but I know some people are more sensitive to it than others. I just happen to be one of the people that found it slightly unnatural.
I had the 558 and find the 598 SE to be more refined without that weird peak around the low treble that the 558 had. Vocals are more natural on these as well. Just the power handling though grrr
These sound almost ideal to me just except for the power handling that I could use a little more of
thise distortion levels arent that bad for a 2011 dynamic headphone. Cant touch a current production planar though and some new dynamics. Too bad no new dynamics have the nice tonality these have though. These are just so airy and nice almost like an electrostaic
