HD598 vs HD558 questions. Your help will be really appreciated.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I have finally decided to buy one of these two. But still very confused about some features.

 

My questions are:

 

1. Does HD598 have an internal surround reflector? If yes, then how come nobody mentions it as one of the main features?

This site says yes: http://en-de.sennheiser.com/high-end-headphones-audio-stereo-hifi-hd-598

And this site says nothing about it: http://en-us.sennheiser.com/audio-headphones-high-end-surround-sound-hd-598

Amazon.com doesn't mention it.

And as far as I know, the hd598 box doesn't mention it either.

 

2. Is the black tape inside the hd558 for extra bass or is that the surround reflector?

 

Not very fond of bass but the surround reflector is important to me.

 

Thank you for your time to look at my questions. Any comment/answer is welcome.

Surround reflector is the bump in the cup

The black foam in the 558's is just there so it doesn't sound so much like the 598's. The two are practically the same headphone,remove the black foam and the 558 is about 90% the same as the 598's. Only difference is the 598's cost 2x the price. If you're trying to decide between the two you can get the 558's for less than $100,that's a much better deal if you remove the foam.

Well, that and the sound.

But hardly. Some probably can't even tell the difference between a modded 558 and 598.

OP hasn't been on since March 10th. I'd say this thread is dead
