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

I guess you're into the futuristic designs wink_face.gif. For me those are a little too futuristic as headphones.

I don't know if anybody said before me.

 

-They look like a comfortable, but rather ugly sofa

 

For HP's they just look average, perhaps a bit more exciting

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.

I liked the look but not the sound. redface.gif

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 purely on looks alone if someone said I had to wear either the HD598's or Dr. Dre Beats out in public I'd have to flip a coin.  I can deal with ugly cans.  But not bad taste.

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

I love my custard pudding cans. IMHO, HD598 is a multi purpose headphone. It is also suitable for gaming, DVD/BD watching, youtube movie....
