Sennheiser hd 518, 558 and momentum

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi. Im going to buy either the sennheiser 518 or 558. I have the money for the 558 but is it worth it? I tried both headphones and was very pleased but i couldnt compare them because they were at different stores. How do the monentum compare to these?

Curiosity: Do you understand the difference between open and closed back headphones?... what would be the intended use? Open to other options?

Just for listening to music or watching movies. Which one of them is closed back? Is there a difference in sound quality?

Unfortunately there are no all-in-one solutions. I will just post some popular closed back headphones between head-fiers

If you're not in a hurry I will suggest to get the Jaycar (for less than 80$) detachable cable, and good sound.

HD558 is a great choice, or consider the open-back audio-technica headphones within your budget.  Grado SR225i if you want to try the Grado sound, although you probably won't enjoy it with movies as much as something like HD558.

How does the 558 compare to the m50? Those are pretty famous around here
