Hey there everyone,
I am new to the forums but felt that this was one of the best audio related communities out there so thought i would throw my question here :D.
so here goes.
as the titles says i wanna buy a headphone and i dont know which one to choose out of 4 models which are;
atm i am in the netherlands and apparently it seems they dont sell the HD 555 here anymore, or atleast i cant find it.
so i have read 3 articles about these headphones on this website, but there is something i am not getting,
according to the sennheiser's website and their product sheet i understood that the HD 515/555/595 are one series and the HD 518/558/598 are another series, which leads to the HD 598 being the successor of the HD 558 and the HD 595 being the successor of the HD 555.
according to the article it says otherwise, but i am not sure of my speculation anyways so if ppl could enlighten me :D.
so now according to the shops i can get these 3 headphones from, i got these prices
-HD 558 ---> 125 euros
-HD 595 ---> 145 euros
-HD 598 ---> 150 euros
so the price is not that much of a difference so i am looking on quality and i am trying to not go for the HD 598 as i dont really like the looks that much but if its superior in quality and the difference is big i might change my mind and go for it.
i will mostly use it for Music, movies and gaming, i might go out with it sometimes so home it is durable enough :).
so what i basically wanna know;
1) whats the difference between them and which one would be better.
2) if u know, i would also like to know which one is the newer model and which series each belongs to.
3) do i need an amp for any of them? will it work fine with my ipod 60GB classic? (knowing that i only used Sony earphones Bassboost up till now :) ).
4) for gaming do i need a good soundcard for it or will the soundcard on my Asus P5N-T deluxe , and on my Medion X6813 preform good enough?
Any other information or details needed or i need to know just ask me :)
thank you for your time, and sorry for the long read.
