Senn 558 fit vs 598 fit?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

So, I've got the 558s now, love them, most comfortable headphones I've ever worn. But I'm considering upgrading to the 598, and I assume so, but I should ask, do they fit the same? Or are they slightly different in size and fit?

 

Thanks!

The HD558 and HD598 use the same 50-Ohm drivers.

Have you tried removing the black rubber tape from inside the cups of the HD558?

To make them more open and more like the HD598.

I'm not trying to replace my 558s, I'm just looking for some similar headphones to keep elsewhere. When I bought the 558s, they were a bit better bang for the buck than the 598s were, but these days, the 598s have come so far down in price, it's hard to pass them up. So I just want to know if I can expect the same comfort from both of them or if the 598s are going to fit differently, as that could impact which headphones I use where.

Yeah, they are pretty much the same headphone just different finish and the foam tape to slightly change the sound. They will feel identical on your head.

Guess the HD598 SE (Special Edition) comes with two cables.

I tried both and didn't feel any major difference.

I've got both and design and comfort is much more similar than sound (even with the foam removed). The padding on the headband is much more comfy on the HD598 otherwise they're pretty much identical.
