Sennheiser HD 598 Impressions Thread - Page 255
Gear mentioned in this thread:
I borrowed them and returned them to the owner, and he says something is clearly loose in the left side... rattling I guess. Loose screw maybe? I'm going to meet him to try and fix them in a bit. I don't remember any issues when I had them, I used them daily during the time I had them... my only thought is that something rattled loose in the car ride over to meet him, but considering it happened on my watch it's my responsibility to solve. Wish me luck!

Nahhh... he's a great guy and I've met with him many times... no tomfoolery there. Yep, peel the pads off, three screws, and that's it! Very easy, and well constructed. Whatever it was, went away when we tested them... I guess we'll never know what happened.

Um... What the hell
I always had the curiosity of listen the 598's in a awesome desktop amp like the Leben CS300X, WA7 or HDVD800. With a better cable and the iPod touch 5G as source, my god *-*
Some people here say the 598's recabled is even better. (More refined, more detailed, and more clear). Instead of buying a new cable try to recable it yourself to improve it!
I've listened the HD598's with some top tier amps but they doesn't scale much. The impact on sound can be noticed when you use a good Dac.
I had this great idea: Sell my hd598's, then use the money to "upgrade" to hd600's or something. Well I still didn't have enough money for new cans, spent the hd598 money, so now I have no cans and no money lol
