    Sennheiser 598 or 595 or 558 (or maybe AT AD700)?

    Might be off topic but I have the 598s too and looking for some classical music tracks where I can experience exactly(musicians breathing) what you described. Can you suggest me some?

    Yes! I think he is. MKBHD is alone might be the driving force behind 20% of all M50X sales.

    One of the worst 60 secs of my life. Thanks for sharing though. Sometimes need to experience other side of the world too.

    I would like to see too. I have the 598SE one and feel like the soundstage isn't as good as some reviewers mention and I always get the vocals back of my head never in front. I would love to have some improvement.

    ATH-M50X Sounds Horrible?

    Thanks! that sounds like really good improvement. I would love to make the highs a little rolled off.

    Not to demoralize you anyway but if you use for gaming and movies mostly wouldn't it have been better to have a open back can?

    ATH-M50X Sounds Horrible?

    That's really intersting. I myself wanted to buy a DAC/Amp or both for a long time now but I can't seem to decide which one should I go for. Can you share some details about differences with and without the amp.

    Very good review indeed. Exactly what I need to replace my 598SE while travelling.

    By reverse-wearing do you mean left on right and right on left?

    Best Headphone under $150

    They are indeed great. They do take some burn in time and getting used to but once you use them enough you just can't get over their magical mids and airy sound, no matter how much time you spend with them.. A masterpiece from Sennheiser.

    Yes! there's a lot of fake Ivory out there. There is a post here that helps you identify and even some youtube videos that show the difference and, of course, Sennheiser has a very good fake detention system. Better safe than sorry.

    Even not all HD598s sound same according to a handful of people here who had the chance to try/own two Ivory 598. So basically, you can not get a definite answer. Too subjective, more so when the margin of physical difference is so thin.

    I am 25hr+ with my 598SE and already noticing a change. Bass does seem more controlled and detailed.

    Hey can you check your revision num? It's printed on the down right side of the  ser. no. and under a bar code. Mine says "REV01". Is your's 02?

    Sennheiser HD 598 Impressions Thread

    Sorry about the late reply. Had exam. Anyway so yeah I am going to try the Ivory and compare before rushing into the decision. It may take a little time though as none of my physical friends are into audio.   Although I see my SE is "REV01". It's written on the right down side of the ser no...

    And more thing about HD 598SE. In higher volume it's just plain noisy. Don't know if you have noticed.

    Sennheiser HD 598 Impressions Thread

    Thanks! and yes I too hear the treble gets smoother with the longer one so I guess you should be more than 70% sure and that means Ivory definitely sounds better.   I was actually wondering from where those great reviews about the great sound stage comes from about HD 598 assuming HD 598= HD...

    Sennheiser HD 598 Impressions Thread

    yeah! that was definitely helpful. One more thing did you use the shorter cable when using the 598SE or the longer cable with quarter inch jack and 3.5 mm clip on adaptor?   I was using the shorter cable for a long time and yesterday I decided to try the longer cable and surprisingly the sound...

    Don't know your music preference but I am getting a bit frontal represtation      Don't know which kind of music you guys are into but I am getting a little frontal representation with   Patsy Cline's "Crazy" (320) B.B King's "Ain't that just like a woman" (FLAC) Dusty Springfield's...

    I didn't actually know that. I thought I have to do it with EQ by myself. Thanks! I will have a look and let you know what I find.

    Can't really feel the huge sound stage with Sennheiser HD 598 SE

    So I tried my HD 598SE again but this time with the original longer cable (this version comes with two cables) and surprisingly it effected the sound stage in a good way.   Instrument separation is actually noticeably better and I am getting a bigger sound stage for sure. With some recordings...

    Hey! that was truly a great review. Unorthodox and original. I wish you two a great new beginning and you are right, you need to settle down first. Love and life both comes ahead, way ahead of this audiophile's hobby.   So good luck man and in the mean time just enjoy your 598SE as I do and...
