Sen. 598 vs speakers

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi, I currently have a Sen. 598, and I just bought 2.1 speakers from Amazon (sound science rockus). 

 

I'm curious as to what I can expect from these speakers and how they compare to my 598. The audio card I'm using is a xonar Essence STX .

 

Thanks, thanks!

Why don't you just wait and see since you already ordered them? :P Worst case scenario, you don't like them and return them to Amazon. They have an amazing return policy.

I use the Rockus as my main computer speakers and the HD558(very slightly step below 598) as my main headphones. I bought the Rockus for $80 back in november, and the HD558 for $100 last week. As is true with every speaker vs headphone comparison when the two are in the same price bracket, HD558 blows rockus out of the water in terms of clarity, detail, portability, and general sound quality.

 

Speakers win in comfort and soundstage. Loose in leakage. I know, mind blowing stuff.

 

Frankly, when I got the Rockus for $80, they were a steal. For the going price now (nearly $190!) there are better computer speakers available for less money.

That. Please do give impressions after listening to them. I've never heard the Soundscience Rockus and would like to know.
