Sennheiser HD 598, starting to crack. - Page 5

post #61 of 74

I've never heard the 598's, but from what I've read they sound like an absolutely cracking pair of headphones.

I have read that a few of you may be self-correcting this cracking problem with super glue. I just wanted to know in the longer run how is this working for you? I sorta want to avoid the hassle of sending them in for repair, if there is a homemade fix.

The more recently made ones have the issue solved apparently.  Mine don't have any cracks at all.

I have a pair of HD 558's and I just slightly loosed the screws that hold the band together behind where the cracks start. Maybe it will remove some of the pressure that causes them to crack. There are 2 little screws on each side. Let's see how they hold up :)

Has anyone sent theres in to Sennheiser for repair/replacement. I have sent in my Hd 558s and they told me it would take about 2 weeks before they send them back. In the mean time I was wondering if anyone had any pics of a repaired/revised version that fixed the cracking problem?

--Grado sr60i > ATH M-50 > V-MODA crossfade M80 > Sennheiser HD 598--

I had locked my decision for this delicious "capucino" looks and gorgeous sound stage. But, after see this thread, hmm.. 300$ (indonesia) is not worthed.

"Crackpucino"

M80: Bass Lover
SR60i: Uncomfortable

So I will buy ATH M50 for my 1st Headphone

No cracks on mine, but I'm getting a short in my cable connection. How long is the warranty on these headphones?
