I spend some time looking through similar posts on this subject on Head-fi, but I would love a more satisfying answer to reassure my doubts.
Some say the 598 is better, some say it's not.
-595 is much warmer and more smooth than the 598.
-598 has a much brighter signature, more treble and wider soundstage than the 595.
-595 mids are more upfront and into the face, the mids are taken back in the 598.
I am a bit worried about the brighter and more treble (maybe even too penetrating and harsh in some music) part in the 598. I like a smooth warm headphone with good soundstage. I am worried that the treble and brighter signature makes the 598 too thin or more fatiguing, can-like and aggressive to listen to?
Both go for the same price.
Thank you so much for taking the time reading this.
