I just moved to Germany and since Sennheisers are made here its only natural that i get myself a pair , it doesn't hurt that they're cheaper here too, I love the HD 598, i think the price its ok for high end headphones 150 EUR, i tried them on a store and they were very confortable and beautiful but they were off so i couldnt test the sound :/ the thing is i will be using these headphones without an amplifier and only on my (future) nexus 4 and my macbook , i keep reading that without an amplifier the bass is weak and also the standard plug is 6.3 and i've seen pictures of this horrible and huge 3.5 adaptor that comes in the package , i thought about replacing the cable for a 2.5 to 3.5 mm cable, sennheiser supposedly released this exact cable i wish, a month ago or so.
I will be listening to 320 and v0 mp3s most of the times, maybe apple lossless in the future
Are these headphones for me? I listen mostly to indie and pop music: synthpop, new wave, shoegaze , dream pop, post punk, electropop,and just a bit of folk
Should i look elsewhere? I like the V-Moda M-80s too but they're more expensive , 180 euros , they have a standar 3.5 mm cable and come with a carrying case , the bad thing is that they're on ear and I've had some regular/cheap on ears before and after a while my ears hurt, i don't know what to do, also 180 EUR is no doubt the most i can pay
