as far as i know the HD598's main strength is soundstage (good for positioning in gaming) and mids (where vocals are)
im not so sure about the other 2 though, sorryredface.gif

All three are fine.

 

A quick summary of each:

 

DT880 - Warm neutral, slightly bright.

HFI2400 - Warm, bassy, slightly bright.

HD598 - Neutral, bright.

 

All three do great at vocals. All three have great sound stages. It comes down to the level of bass you're looking for really.

 

I'll throw in another headphone to consider:

 

Sony MA900.

 

Very best,

Heya,

 

The Sony MA900 is similar to the HD598, but a little warmer. It has a massive sound stage. It's not overly bright, but it's not dull. It's another flavor. Search up reviews on it.

 

Very best,

Now you are making me consider the sony's. So many choices. Would the ma900s be even better if using the e10]
