Sennheiser HD 598 Impressions Thread - Page 182

post #2716 of 3967

Looks like the cats out of the bag. Some chinese shop came up with a "universal" connector for these cans and now were going to start seeing cables galore getting pumped out. LINK and LINK

 

I must say, it certainly took them long enough.

I believe they are around $150 USD from Sennheiser though.

Roughly $80 from Sennheiser. Just got my Momentum On-Ear headphones and that cable also fits. It's lighter (less metal, more plastic) and will cost about half that, but since it's a new headphone, they may not have the cables to sell for a while.

Im sure just like every other cable... I have three cables for my HD-598s now and they all sound like metal conducting electrons to me.

Alright then. Because the sennheiser cable from what I remember made the shure srh940 sound metallic and harsh.

Hi guys,

 

Just got my 598s here with e17 do you think this is good combo? and how to do "burn in" with 598s ?

Some insist on playing pink noise, but I just set my iPod to shuffle and let it play for a few nights.

Is there a shortlist of recommended budget dac/amps to pair with the hd598? Or good dac and amp pairings perhaps?
modi/magni? o2/odac? hrt microstreamer? audioquest dragonfly? Meridian explorer? Has anyone done a comparison of different components compared or built systems around these cans?

I'm not a believer of burn in, that being said my iPod was on shuffle for a few nights in the storage closet smily_headphones1.gif great cans, in the future I would look at a good tube amp to pair them with (I just like the tube sound I guess and thought a nice ss amp put just a touch too much treble for me where the tube made them even more airy, a plus IMO.) happy listening

Nor am I. I dont really believe nor have I ever noticed it making much of a difference. But I do it for 100 hours with all my cans right when I get them. I figure it certainly cant hurt, so why not? Then I can say "yep, sure did" if any one asks.

And now it looks like they have them available with an iPhone mic and controls built in, in two colors and with two different colored connectors to the cans. I bought a red and a black, Ill let you all know what the details when I get them. LINK
