Pros: Smart looking and looks very durable

Cons: The white may look dirty over time if not taken care of

While having a listening session with a friend on my newly made valve headphone amp we swapped phones. I was using the Audio-technica ATH700 Air and my friend The Sennheiser HD598s. My tube amp can drive two HPs at the same time with both being close to each other in impedance and efficiency. For the extra $100 over the cost of the AT I would say the Sennheiser are good value. They were not as bassy but good bass extension and mids and treble was airier and cleaner. By no means are the AT a slouch and for $160 they are really excellent value. But if you want something better and happy to pay around $100 more I would suggest the Sennheisers.

I do believe you can regularly find the HD 598's for regularly at $170-$190. At Fry's, they're usually priced at $150.
That's a good price for a very nice pair of headphones. I'd go for that.
