Hi there !!!
Now you're going to say "On which plenet does the 598 cost 150$ more than the 558 ? Well that planet is called Canada.....
Currently using a dying PX 100 -II (sound is starting to cut off in the left ear) and looking mostly at the 598 vs the 558 since they fit most of my criterias (good all arounder with great comfort and the Senn sound signature). Now i've read pretty much everywhere i looked that the 598 was a more refined version of the 558 but is it worth 150 $ more ? I don't have any experience with either so and that's why i'm asking. I would get the 598 but if the difference is not worth the crazy bend over price difference then i will get the 558..
And yes i've looked around a lot for a better deal here in Canuckland. Can get the 598 on Ebay for slightly less but the difference is not really worth it. Maybe 10-15$ at most , thanks to those customs fees.
Basically the lowest i can get each (new and factory sealed) is :
Senn 598 - 259$ before taxe and shipping
Senn 558 -159$ before tax + shipping
And just so you know , even at that price both are supposed on sale LOL. TThe 558 normally goes for over 230$ here......This is crazy how we are getting ripped off on headphones prices here in Canada and it pisses me off , especially when i see the HD 598 at 187$ on Amazon.Com.....but of course they don't ship to Canada....
So my question is : Is the 598 worth it over the 558 at those prices ? My first instinct would be to say no but as i said i don't have any experience with either soit's hard for me to say
- Are there better alternatives in the Canadian market for 150-250$ ?
- Do you have any recommendation for me to get the HD 598 at the "normal" price ? I prefer to buy new and factory sealed just so you know. Never was a big "used" fan.
- Are there good deals on headphones normally during Boxing Day ? Someone told me the 598 were actually 169$ for a few hours on Amazon.ca during black friday but went back up to 279$ the same day. Had i knewi would have snatched one up immediately but i was away for work and i wasn't in the hunt for headphoens at that time anyway.
Thanks in advance !!!.
