What Hi-Fi doesn't like Senn HD598

Reviewer Said, they sound beige". :)

 

Can't say I agree with only 3/5 considering they sound pretty much identical to HD595 which that they gave 4/5 stars to but I was disappointed in my HD598s because they were no upgrade over the HD595s that I had already owned and the color was a downgrade.

 

Disclaimer: What Hi-Fi gives Monster Beats 4/5 stars.

The build quality on the 598 is better.

 

Namely, they fixed the cracking problem.

Well, I think you would be annoyed too when people clamed they sounded better and they didn't after spending $250.00 on them.

 

Never had a cracking problem with 595, I think that applied to earlier versions of 598 only. I no longer have 595, nor 598, but a friend ahs my 595s and no problems, gave my 598s to a family member too.

Whathifi used to come out with some decent and fairly accurate reviews, but these days it seems they're consumer driven and a lot of the latest reviews I simply do not agree with on many levels.

Their review matches my impressions when I bought a pair a few years ago. Except for the fact I didn't find them very comfortable either.

I do think they did the 598s a bit of a disservice by not mentioning the soundstaging though. Simply the largest ss I've heard from a headphone, though that's not necessarily a good thing as it could sound a bit diffuse.
