The 5401 is one of my favourite phones to be honest. Glad that there's a liking here since i guess it's a low key headphone.    I've got a bigger-than-average head so it just about fits me, but the sound is impressive regardless of headphone price. Becomes even better when paired with a good dac/amp. 
Yea, I'm a big fan of these speakers. Had them every since and haven't considered 'upgrading.' 
These build quality issues are embarrassing really. Fair enough, price it as high as people are willing to pay for it, but shoddy build quality will annoy everyone.   But maybe their standards have dropped since my sig pro's are as tough as ever from over one year of continuous use.  I had the sig dj and ed8 before then and build quality seemed good too. 
 I store my sig pro's folded fully, so that there are always stretch forces at play on the headband. The earpads fully touch each other, yep. I just hated the stock clamping force. Pad thickness doesn't reduce too much to be honest - but putting them on a box would do that.  
Was meant to go to the national audio show, but my mistake, didn't look at the trains service. It was one of them engineering works sundays where it would have been quicker to fly to russia than to train it 60 miles north of London.    Never mind. I'll soon make a trip to hifi-lounge (was their headphone stall I think)   Hope you guys enjoy your ED5's!!
I'd seen that and was thinking to buy it but the reviews were not fantastic    There's quite a few more; just type in ebay 'HD598 cable.'   Might order a few just to see 
The microstreamer is a competent piece of gear. I tried this alongside the dragonfly 1.2, in the end keeping the latter because of it's smoother treble rendition and it worked without pops/clicks on my laptop.   What you're hearing may be down to the headphone as apparently it's not very good. Never heard it myself but I can point you in this direction; http://www.head-fi.org/t/684135/musical-fidelity-mf-100-on-ear-headphones 
        Not great images, sorry.    There's a small 'gap' but it's plenty secure enough. It just doesn't click into place, that's all. 
 I do that sometimes myself when on the move. I'm thinking about getting some other ebay cables for this purpose, ones that fit the hd598.  It's been over a year now and the sig pro has never let me down SQ wise. My favourite closed back, especially with the oyaide cable.  A thing peculiar about this headphone and down to (i think!) the way the ethiopian sheepskin leather works  - it becomes increasingly more comfortable during the course of a long listening session. It...
 Not a problem. I've actually listened to this thing quite a lot over the past few days and should probably write a review soon.
