Are there any other recommendations you guys can give me for less that 250 USD? I use my headphones mainly for PC gaming and movies. I don't listen to music to often but when I do its normally rap and rock.
Does your computer use an add-on sound card (which one?) or built in audio?
When I bought my Senn HD558 it took at least 20 hours of break in time for them to sound their best.
Try leaving the HD598s plugged in over night (a few times). put the headphones under something to block the noise.
I personally like to used Metal music at a higher then normal volume level to break in headphones.
