The 595 is the most comfortable headphone I have ever used except for possibly the sony cd3000.


like RichardCory, i tried positioning my hd555's in everyway possible, and i could still feel the hard plastic thing. i don't have big ears either. the plastic piece isn't fatiguing, but it annoyed me just because i could feel it touching my ears. like i said in a previous post the hd555's are nowhere near as comfortable as the k701's or dt770's *to me* They were, however, WAY more comfortable than my sr60's

i am satisfied with the sound, they sound clear and smooth.
the bass is quite strong. i am hearing the voices clearer and are hearing more details than before. Highly recommended.

My source is my PC with AV710 sound card, but I'm thinking to get a CDP,
I don't really like the player using up all the resource on my PC when I'm working on other stuff on my machine.....

I guess it's more or less depends on the quality than SS/tube.
The main difference of SS and tube is the sound you get.
For this amp, it's only <1%, so it doesn't make a difference for me.
And I like the sound better than straight from the card.
