And now, I've decided on getting a full-sized pair, and I'm currently looking at the Senn HD598's
Would these be a great pickup, or are there any alternatives for a guy who enjoys Rock, Alternative, and a dash of Indie music?
They're a bit on the bass light side if that affects your decision. They also leak sound if that's a concern. The cable at 10' is clearly intended for stationary use.
But comfort is sublime and vocals are absolutely wonderful on the headphone. I really enjoy alternative and indie on the 598s and could live with just the 598s if push came to shove.
Hope your journey into headphone-ville is a fruitful one.
