Pros: Great sound, Looks like a piece of art, Great soundstage

Cons: Gives a weird/hot feeling after long periods of use

My first pair of audiophile headphones. BEST starter headphones. I love them so much.

Sorry, "BEST starter" can is kinda a tall order.
The problem is that they have a sharp rise in the frequency that needs a amp to work out the power. I typically say to stay away from cans that need amps if you're starting out.
I would have to agree with the above guy. A starter headphone should not pretty much require a dedicated amp and dac. However, the hd 598, from what i heard about them, sound amazing with the proper setup.
