I'm looking to sell my Sennheiser HD598 headphones. They are quite excellent sounding headphones, I think!
 
I had them recabled with Mogami 2534 cable and a Switchcraft gold 3.5mm plug. These are wired to be dual-entry and use NONE of the original wiring.
 
I have done the "soundstage" mod on these (originally for the HD555/595) as well. I personally felt the changes brought about from this were minimal, but nice.
 
They are in good condition and fully work. However, there is some light scuffing on them from when I modded them. Barely noticeable, IMO, unless you're up close and looking for it.
 
Also, I had to fix something in the Switchcraft plug and did not have extra heatshrink for it, so I instead used black duct tape. It's not as clean or pretty looking, but it gets the job done. It would probably be to your benefit to redo the plug on them anyway. Like I said, it works, but you may want to redo it.
 
There is also a very small tear in the white paper/cloth baffle directly above one of the drivers. I accidentally did this while modding them. It has NO impact on the sound, though.
 
I'm looking for $190 shipped OBO. I have 100+ (all positive) feedback on eBay (same username as here) and a bit of feedback on these forums. I'll include the original packaging. I also have the original detachable cable, which I will also include. I will include anything else that came with it if I can find it (ex: 1/4" to 3.5mm adapter).
 
PM me if you're interested. Thanks!
