    The JVC HA-S500 thread.

    This may have been asked already, but how do they size up against the Noontec Zoro?

    Jabra Halo2 Portable headphones. How do they compare to the traditional choices?

    Slight bump. Hoping someone has/tried out the Halo2 set to comment on them.

    Senn HD598 + what amp?

    The E7/E9 is a nice combo. If you're looking to save a few bucks with equal performance, get the E10 AMP/DAC. Only con is that it's not really portable, but that shouldn't be an issue really.   Also...

    Community help requested. Underlying hiss/static noise in right ear cup

    Thanks for taking them time to reply.   I've been able to do that, yes. The result is that all 3 headphones (Logitech Clearchat, HD201, HD598) have the same similar distortion at the same points, most noticably with instrumental/orchestral songs. That's why I came up with asking Head-fi for...

    That's exactly my problem. If I had any other source I wouldn't have asked Head-fi. My only other "source" is my phone, which has a silly flat USB port that doesn't fit anything.

    Community help requested. Underlying hiss/static noise in right ear cup

    I've messaged Sennheiser about this issue. Them having experience with audio might know what may be causing this. In the mean time, I would very much appreciate some community help with the following to eliminate possible causes. It will only take a minute or two of your time, but massively help...

    Sennheiser HD598 for Christmas...not impressed yet.

    Quote: Just wanted to note that I had the 595's and currently own the 598's. I can assure you they're not the same, as they have both different drivers and a different internal housing. The 598 is a step up (or two) in basically everything that the 595's did, including bass.

    The cracking issue has been fixed since July 2011. If you're unlucky enough to have one because the stock was from before then, you'll get it replaced under warranty if it starts cracking, without question.

    Sennheiser HD-598 Amp necessary?

    Sorry to bump this up a bit, but I've got the same question as the OP. The only difference here is that I don't have any dedicated sound card. Period. I'm really looking to go sub 100 dollars (unless something that's very good bang for buck comes along) and I'm currently looking at the FiiO E10...

    Sennheiser HD 598 Impressions Thread

    Quote: It's like the 595 vs 598. The E10 is just that bit better in everything than the E7. the E7 is portable though.   Does anyone else want to chime in on the E10 or Dedicated soundcard against an onboard setup?

    E10 it is then!   What are people's experiences with the 598 and E10?

    Sennheiser HD 598 Impressions Thread

    Between the E10 and a dedicated sound card, which of those should I take? And if the soundcard, which model sub 100 dollars would be best?

    Sennheiser HD 598 Impressions Thread

    On the topic of making the HD598 sound even better, I'm currently powering it completely from stock (HD598 > Onboard sound card). Would I benefit more from the E10 or a dedicated sound card?

    For those that had both: What are the major difference between the 595 and these cans?
