I would want to settle for these and save some money because I got a good deal for them.
Brick&Mortar Retail stores sell the HD558 for more than 170€, Online retailers sell it for 150€ and I got a 130€ special!
The 598's are 1.42x the price so are you saying they're worth my money compared to the sound of the HD558?
Am I getting 70% of the sound of the HD598's for 70% of the price, is that fair enough?
I'm not an audio fanatic but I may come back with more serious intentions on getting a GREAT audio setup in the future.
For now I want to balance my budgets to spend on things because I don't have a fixed income.
Who would you guys be suggesting the HD558 for?
Just remove the black rubber tape from inside the cups of the HD558, it makes the HD558 more open.
Also give the HD558 sometime to break in, need to leave them plugged in over night (a few times), maybe with the volume a little higher then normal.
Cover them with something like a blanket, to block the noise.
