the tan colour on the HD598 is a little too yellowish and saturated imo

I guess you're into the futuristic designs . For me those are a little too futuristic as headphones.
Can you actually define the term 'detail,' and give specific moments of specific songs where 'superior detail' shows through? I'm having a hard time believing that HD600/650 aren't very detailed. They have a very fast decay and their frequency response is very smooth, that should be cause for a great amount of detail. Might you be mistaking treble emphasis for detail?
well, that is where detail comes from. Grados, Beyers,and k701s are said to be very detailed, and what are they? Trebly. Same thing with all bright cans, the treble emphasis gives more detail.
Detail and treble emphasis does not go hand in hand. Just saying.
Personally i don't find the k702 overly detailed, just trebly.
When I think detailed, i think etymotic or very high end cans like the tesla t1.
I do agree that faster decay is a good thing and contributes morre to detail than treble emphasis does, but to the average person, trebly cans seem to be more detailed and clear.
Just didn't like your statement xD
Not that i own any high end cans, but after owning the etymotic hf2 and trying the t1, i think i know what real detail is. Treble fools you
