i have tried that, the can is very comfort and nice to use. however i scare about the cracking at the "H" word. some people said that the structure would be figile if you do not taking care about the crack. compared it with Sony MA500 or ATH AD900 or 700. which one should be better choice?
The HD 598 are fine as long as you don't abuse them. They are definately sturdier than the Sony.
With regard to sound--all three are excellent and reasonable ears will like each of them.
