Always been a fan of sennheiser headphones and when these came up on sale i just had to buy them. These headphones are incredibly comfy, with the adjustments fitting to my rather large head with there still being room to adjust further, making them not too tight on my head. The ear cups fit nicely around the ears and the padding all around makes these lovely to wear. The sound quality is very good, the sound is well ballanced and clear. Obviously a lot of external noise (being open backed) so not the best choice if you are looking to use them in a noisy environment, and they can be head easily enough by those around you (again, open backed). Overall a lovely set of headphones and well worth the price in my opinion.
I’ve used these every day since i’ve had them pretty much non stop. I’ve used these every day since i’ve had them pretty much non stop. Amazing for watching movies and gaming. Perfect sound clarity and sound stage for music. I have gone back to all the old songs i used to like and listened to them again. With these on it’s like listening to them again for the first time.

These headphones are fantasticthey offer a nice warm sound, with plenty of bass and balanced mids-high. The give a good depth to the listening experience also, i think this is because they are open back headphones. You wouldn’t use these headphones in a public place for two reasons, people would be able to hear everything that you are listening to and also you would be able to hear everything around you. They are perfect for listening to films on as well, they really add to the movie experience. 10/10 would buy these again if they broke (which i cant see happening as they are really well made.
Good for gaming, extremely comfortable. Not too much of an audio geek but they sound pretty good to me and damn they are comfortable, sometimes i forget they are even on. Very good sound-stage for playing games such as cs go where pinpointing sounds is key.
It is very comfortable to wear and the music quality is outstanding. I should note that these are not the most bassy headphones around, so if you want a lot of bass, you should look elsewhere. If you’re interested in just pure excellent music quality, than these are for you.
Sennheiser HD 598 Around-Ear Open Back Headphones – Cream/Brown : Very comfortable but i didn’t like its fade sound. Had to return and buy ad900x.
