Hd555 to Hd598 question and where to buy

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Ok, my pair of Sennheiser HD 555 are kind of on their last few months of use. the warranty is out on them, they have been kicked off my head into walls because people i live with cant figure out how to walk around cables, and the plastic holding the ear part on my head just had a large chunk fall off, and something i just noticed apparently the cable has some exposed copper because i can see green oxidization. i cant see them lasting more than a few more months, and with christmas around the corner, i figure why not look into upgrades. 

 

So here is my question, what can i expect going from Hd555 to Hd598, quality wise, build wise... really any difference you can think worth mentioning. 

 

from what i read, the initial run of the Hd598 had some manufacturing problems, where the plastic was easily broken, and sense has been fixed. How likely is it that i could get stuck with one of those headphones? 

 

also right now on amazon i see a pair for 190$, is there somewhere else i should look or is that probably the best i will get.

Save a few dollars, get the HD558s, same driver as the HD598.
