First Time Listener Considering Sennheiser HD598 - Your Thoughts? - Page 2

post #16 of 19

Loved the 598s and regret selling them a bit also (maybe I'll pick them back up if there's a deal I can't refuse). Listening to these is a beautiful, magical experience IMHO and they shine with everything from rock to electronica and definitely movie soundtracks. It's an amazing headphone. If you get them, I hope you enjoy them.

Thank you Bngbox and Streetdragon for the follow up.  That's pretty much what it comes down to then, whether or not I plan to use headphones in a noisy room or not.  For the most part the room is quiet and I can set time out for myself for listening but I was hoping it wouldn't be an issue.  I still got some time before I make my decision and I'm sure I'll debate this with a closed pair all the way until I hit that "purchase" button ha, ha.  I like what I'm hearing about the 598's though and it sounds like they should be worth it.

 

Hey you guys have been awesome with your advice. 

 

Thanks again!

Thanks for your feedback Roma101.  I do have a bit of electronica in my collection as well so it's good to hear that they can shine with the various styles of music.

Yep yep, it might be a bit bass-light for that genre but the ambience and imaging is top-notch IMO. :)
