HD 598 West vs East?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I have a pair of replacement HD 598's inbound & noticed that they are listed as HD 598 WEST. Mine are HD 598 EAST. Any idea what the difference is? I live in the SOUTH, so I hope they work OK!!!

Ok. I doubt there will be any differences. It's not like anything would be different.

My headphones read "LEFT" and the other earpiece reads "RIGHT".....

 

Anyone knows if there's something wrong or should I return them??

I know, right? I was just wondering about the East/West designation. Different factories? Different markets? I have no idea????

Just imagine if they voiced them differently for different markets :blink:

 

what a confusing HD598 apprecation thread would that make

I think it'd be market.

Sennheiser says that West version is USA & the East ver. is typically sold in Europe. I was curious because Fry's had these for $149 & they were the East variant.

Drivers sound exactly the same go for which is cheap :)

OK, did I miss something in the forum rules? Is sarcasm forbidden? I like good sarcasm,but haven't seen any here.
