    [​IMG]  Yup, it's gotta be modded.  And as far as mods go, Mr. Speakers does one heck of a professional job.

    LOL, looks like it right?  Nah, he was just making the rounds and talking to everyone.  Actually, you'd be surprised at how down-to-earth the V-Moda reps are in terms of just talking headphones and audio.  They'e not just mindless reps out to push their own product - quite refreshing.

    Thanks preferedu!  Are you consider the HD 215 by any chance?  If you are I'd be happy to answer any specific questions you have while all the impressions are still relatively fresh in my mind.

    I wish Sennheiser would let me check them out. :frowning2:

    They are ok headphones. Pretty good at the price for studio use, not DJ use. Nothing really too special though :/

    Amazing review, one of the most organized, concise I've ever read on Head-Fi. 
     
    And bonus points for using The Railway Children as a demo source!

    A review of this caliber, perhaps they will let you review other cans in their collection? You have my vote.

    I'm more looking forward to the HD598 successor myself. Only problem, they've worked their way into a corner as far as the numbers go, haha.

    Haha, they're saving all the HD 5XX series stuff for you.  As a noob, I only have level HD 2XX clearance - which just happened to be what they needed atm.

    They're definitely not bad, and even have quite a few plusses in my book.  I do wish they backed off a little with the sibilance, but overall a good effort, especially given the $80 price point.  I could think of far worse at that price.  I would take it over the HD 205 in a heartbeat, that much is clear.

    Wow, such praise from a Head-Fi veteran!  I'll bet you've seen your share of reviews over the years so that is a much appreciated compliment indeed.
     
    I can count the number of The Railway Children (the band not the book) fans I know on one hand - with you included.  BTW, have you had a chance to hear their Gentle Sound album?  Let's just say that it's um, different.
     
  12. bowei006 Contributor
    Yeah they have really gone into corner
     
    598
    600
    650
    700
    800
     
    So what? 675? 698? 750? 850? 699

    I'm more referring to the HD598 since it can't go into the 6 range due to the HD600 and HD650 occupying that territory. HD558 still has plenty of numbers before it hits HD595, same with the HD518 before it hits HD55. But the only thing the HD598 can pull off is a HD599, unless they start tacking letters on like a HD598X or something. Perhaps that series will cease to exist, or be reborn into another series, sorta like the D2000 (de)volving into the D600. Only time can tell.
     
    Sorry, I'll stop derailing the thread. At least this served as a bump for an awesome review! [​IMG]
