Denon AHD2000 or Sennheiser HD-598? Help a baby audiphile.

post #1 of 7

Fairly new to the world, I've had mainstream head phones and ear buds, some ultimate ears, some fischers, nothing fantastic honestly. I'm looking for a pair of over the ears, and I've narrowed it down to these two simply because of how cheap I can get them. The Denons are 140, and the Sennheisers are 155. I know a little about both, but I'm looking for candid, unbiased opinions.

I own a pair of Denon D2000s...and owned the HD558. The HD558 were good except for their lack of bass and from what I hear the HD598 isnt that much different (a slight overall improvement) but someone else might know better about them.

The Denon's have great bass (especially sub bass...it hits really low!)...without sacrificing mids and highs. They're currently my favourite headphones. They're all around great headphones for any kind of music im finding. They're good for games and movies as well but I prefer them for music. Ultrasones are more exciting for movies and games (more thunderous mid-bass than the Denon's).

Thanks for the words, The Denons actually just arrived and they sound fantastic. I like them a lot, they're super comfy and brand new despite being labeled 'used'.

Do you use an amplifier with them? If so which, if not, any ideas?

No I just plug them straight into my laptop, and they still sound amazing...im looking to get one eventually though but have no idea where to start. It also depends on your budget I suppose.

Where on earth did you get such a great deal for ahd2000? They work very well un-amped.

Ive owned the D2000's and listened my cousin's HD598s.  Both are awesome cans, but at those prices, the D2K's are a steal.  They gone up a lot in value now that they been discontinued so it's a no brainer to grab on to one if you can get it for 140.
