You said sound quality is not important and the Bose meet your criteria. Get the Bose. They're comfortable and inoffensive. Head-fi has a general focus on sound quality and traits so I'm not sure how much help these forums will be to you.
Sometimes. Fiio E17 and Rockbox and other apps fix that by changing the balance.
Can't go wrong with the Grados.
When taken out of context all this Maddog Schitt stack talk is really funny!
Lol Lumpiesorz!
The $10 ones on the Target rack will do just fine.
Have you listened to them yet and do you like how they sound? That's the first thing you should ask. You can play with Realtek settings and determine what's best for you. As for burn in just use music you like and don't obsess. No amount of burn in will change the phone's sound signature.
Mixing techniques may contribute as well as differences in hearing from left to right ears. The soundstaging of the 598 will accentuate these as well. I would get similar effects with various headphones and it would drive me nuts ha. A left right balance feature on a source or amp will help.
How did you manage to find K550 for $178? That's great!
The Senn HD280 needs a bit more love around here. I find the bass to be some of the best I've heard and felt. Rock and hip hop done with ease. Only drawback is they are a bit big.
