Sennheiser HD 590 Headphones


Pros: Comfort

Cons: Sound leakage.

I've had these cans for over 10 years and they have been great. Super comfy to wear - I can wear them for 2-3 hours at a time. Rather bulky if you have to cart them around. The sound is typical Sennheiser, clean, crisp and fairly neutral. Lacking in bass possibly. Lovely delicate highs. Being open backed, they leak sound like crazy and used to annoy my colleagues in the office :)





Pros: Comfort, good bass, good sound-stage. Light and easy to wear over long listening sessions.

Cons: Until they are run in, you may get a false impression of them. Slightly muffled midrange

These have certainly paid for them selves and after 10 years of use! To this day they are still the best headphones I've heard when not being driven by am amp.


This makes them really easy to use because you can plug them into any source and get amazing sound. Coupled with how light these are they are a great simple solution for anybody who cares about their sound.
