Need help deciding

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello. I own a pair of Sennheiser HD598 and i really love them but i really would like a comparable sound but closed back. I keep these guys at home because of the open-back and i don't have anything closed other than Skullcandy Crushers which i cannot stand. I have really been looking into the Sennheiser Momentum but i kinda want some advice on them because they aren't very cheap. I listen to alot of music like Seether, Shinedown and Theory of a Deadman, that kinda stuff. My favorite part about the 598's is the comfort, the soundstage although i understand a closed-back in this price range cannot produce a sound stage like the 598s. Anyway if anyone has these headphones or have both the momentum and 598's, it would help a lot and i would appreciate it. Thanks.

Oh i almost forgot. I also have been looking into the Sennheiser HD449, mainly because of the price and i've heard some pretty good things about them, i just dont know if its worth to spend the extra money on the Momemtums.

I own a pair of 598s as well and love the sound signature. For a closed back pair I've found that the 439 is as close as you're going to get. They're considered the step down from the 449, but I consider them a better pair and I know alot of other think so as well. In addition it has a detachable cable and felt earpads while the 449 has leatherette pads and a non detachable cable. Also I picked up my 439s for $40 new so you can find em for fairly cheap.

The momentum does not sound similar. The AKG K545 and K550 are my top recommendations.

Go to BestBuy and audition the Momentum's as they have small ear cups so you wanna be sure they fit you first.  I would suggest the NAD HP50.  What's your budget?

Hey, sorry for the time of my response as i've unfortunately been busy lately. I have ordered the 449's as i actually prefer the leatherette ear pads (but ive found replaceable felt ones) and the non detachable cable is unfortunate but its okay, i take extreme caution with my headphones anyways. Thanks for your responses, they helped alot. Also i checked my somewhat local best buy but all they had for Sennheiser display were the 429's that i'm not a fan of. Thanks.
