HD598 or Beyerdynamic DT-990-Pro

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I thought I finally decided on getting the HD598, but now I kind of feel like the DT-990s are better for what I would use them for.  

 

-For daily, desktop use

-Primarily, I listen to rap and hip-hop, but I also listen to a lot of vocals, and don't want to miss out on the mids.

-It would also be used for daily Skype calls, gaming, and movies. 

-plan on getting dac/amp with it

-first headphones

 

 

I feel like the HD598 are more 'do anything' then the DT-990. I would be using them for everything and i'm not sure how 'fun' earphones go with that, but I also like some fun music time.

 

These are basically two polar opposite headphones and i'm looking for the best of both worlds for daily use. My heart thinks that the HD598 are better, but my brain wants the bass/trbel from the DT-990.. :o(

 

what do?

As long as your planning on getting a DAC & headphone amplifier, get the "fun" DT990s.

Get the DT 990. I have the Sennheiser HD 558 (very similar to the HD 598) and the DT 990 Premium 600 Ohm. The Sennheisers have almost no bass unless amped well, but they have a slightly better soundstage. Since all open headphones generally have good soundstages, I prefer the better sound quality of the DT 990. The beyerdynamics are also more comfortable in my opinion, which is important for long use.
