Thanks for this.  I will hold off on picking up an external dac/amp for now. 

 

Amazon REALLY need to stop discounting headphones - just picked up a pair of on sale AKG K551's without knowing anything about them.

 

Ok, I lied.  I just splurged on an E10K - will take a few weeks to arrive but I'll post my thoughts on how it pairs with the 598.

I just got my E10k with my 598s. I never imagined a laptop could sound so good!

The 598 looks like old yellowing computer components to me, but whatever...I have really enjoyed how much better they have sounded over time. Great for gaming too.

Read about the HD 598 s and heard good things so i bought some. 

 

Overall im pretty pleased. As its been said you dont really NEED an amp but it does help. These are very comfortable cans.

Very pleasing to the eye and sound is decent for the price. 

 

Some short falls are the bass as has been said a million and one times. They are great for technical songs and are perfect for 

classical music and jazz which is what i mostly use them for. Not everyones cup of tea. If you have doubts these are probably not for you.

Bass is pretty good to my ears even coming from xb90ex :/ these won't wow you from the get go, they grow on you.
