I will be purchasing a headphone and mainly listen to solo classical piano (and some piano concertos too, but that's not primary).
I am considering the Senn HD598. Would you guys recommend it for this purpose?
What else should I be considering?
Budget is $250.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Btw... just as an interesting question: Most of the recordings I listen to are from the 50s, 60s and 70s (some even older!) and aren't great recordings. Around 40% of the stuff I listen to is in MONO. Is it true that a $250 headphone will fare the same as $20 headphones on such recordings? In that case, I may not buy 'audiophile' headphones at all.
