    Can't make my final decision! First headphones ~150 dollar.

    Quote: At this point I'm going to have to try them at the very least just because of the amount of time I spent checking them out! I think they will be fine, I'll turn down the volume when I'm recording.   I got them for about 180 dollars. Can't wait till tomorrow! :)

    Thanks everyone, for all the valuable input so far. It does really help.   What's the first headphone that pops into your head with this wishlist?   - Closed headphones - Quality sound (obviously, I listen mostly to jazz/trance/classic rock/relaxing music, for example nujabes...

    So the HD 598 seems to be perfect, however... Will the leaking in my microphone be noticable?

    New plan! Just realised that a closed headphone will be what I need.   Short and easy wishlist :).    - Closed headphones - Quality sound (obviously, I listen mostly to jazz/trance/classic rock/relaxing music); - Comfortable (I will wear them 5+ hours daily) - Max budget of 150...

    Anyone? :) Since it's my birthday today I was looking forward to buying them today. If no one will respond I'll just buy the HD 598s :).

    Quote: Yeah true. Will the HD 598 be good for what I want? Also, if I wanted to sit a little bit cheaper than the HD598s, which would you recommend for the same kind of headphones. 194 dollar is still a lot of money for me.

    Quote: I guess prices are a little bit different where I'm from. In Holland I'm paying a bit over 150 euro's which is fine for me. :) Would you recommend it?

    Looking for some 'starter' audiophile headphones

    Quote:   You made an account to suggest me this?   I know I'm a noobie when it comes to headphones but that's why I'm asking help... I'm going to try a few later this week, big shop in Utrecht, the Netherlands.   Hopefully making a final decision! :)

    Looking for some 'starter' audiophile headphones

    Quote: Ofcourse! I didn't mean to say that the HD558 was bad in any way. It's much much better than I currently own. Just meant to point out that I don't want to buy a product that I should mod to make it sound 1 step higher in the same set of headphones.

    Looking for some 'starter' audiophile headphones

    Quote: Thanks a lot for your comment. Indeed, I just found out that people are spending around 300 dollar for the 598 which made me think the 150 euros (190 dollar or so) is a great deal. I will let all the information get sink in and go to a store to actually try them out.   Right...

    Looking for some 'starter' audiophile headphones

    I just noticed the serie HD598, HD558 and HD518. All 3 seem really really high quality headphones. I've been looking around to find the diffrence between them but don't really find any beside looks and little minor sound diffrences.   The sennheiser 518 would cost me 89 euro's, the HD598...
