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.

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • High clarity and increased bass for a fully immersive music and movie experience
  • Wide soundstage that will pick every detail in your music and hear the tiny nuances you have never heard before
  • Field-replaceable parts for a long lifespan
  • Every detail and layer of your music is audible
  • Ergonomic acoustic refinement (E.A.R.) design channels the audio signal directly into your ears

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.

Spending lots of £$€ and i now realise it was all a waste of money. I bought these headphones in 2011 and i’m writing this 5 star review in 2017. I’ve bought probably half a dozen mid to high end headphones during this time just for the craic, spending lots of £$€ and i now realise it was all a waste of money. These earphones possess the most lively, beautiful sound of them all. Incredibly comfortable headphones. I genuinely struggle to find a fault. Ok maybe, long cable etc, but i replaced the cable with a 3rd party alternative shortly after purchasing so it hasn’t been an issue. Obviously with the open back design they don’t work out in public – actually please don’t ever wear these headphone on public transport. In terms of build quality, i’ve worn these every other day for years and they are holding up remarkably well structurally, the only thing that i’d fault is the leather cushion on the headband which after about 5 years started to look a bit shabby.

The sound is very nicely balanced. I bought them for around £120 on offer and find them excellent quality.

Great pair of headphones would definitely recommend. However i have a problem with the jack in the headphones having a loose connection.

Honestly, a great pair of headphones, i compared these to the siberia steelseries 650 headset and realised that there was an incredibly noticeable difference between the audio quality. Definitely recommend buying these just for the pure audio quality as well as the amazing comfortability.

As pretty as a cappuccino torte. Wonderful looks backed by that famous sennheiser quality soundi find all my sennheiser and bose products sound much better if i initially warm them up by placing in the microwave for about 10 minutes before first using themespecially in winter your ears will thank you for it and your friends will know you are seriously hotand don’t forget to try them with whipped cream the brass has never sounded so good.

The sound is amazing, could wear them for hours. Though i’d leave a review for these after having them for near enough two years. I purchased these headphones for movies and studying for the last two years of university and all i can say is thanks sennheiser. I handle them quite roughly and they have never broke, the sound is amazing, could wear them for hours, days, years. I use them for all types of music, from classical to hardstyle and while the only thing i feel would make them better is slightly more punchy bass, aside from that, the quality is tremendous. Not going to waste your time with an extensive overview on the sound technicalities, aside from just buy them, you wont regret it. Arguably one of the best headphones in the world for the price.

Sennheiser at the top of their form. . Beautiful open sound stage, extremely comfortable cups. Paired with a mod-mic 5, this is the best headset i have ever used. The mic does not even pickup the open back bleed through. Lightest headphones i have ever used. When taking them off, between the light weight and the seamless soundstage it does not have that “exiting/entering a new environment” feeling i get removing more closed/heavier headphones. I will concede that the bass is a little undefined though, the 598s feel a little too un-opinionated, great for most cases but if your regular use is heavier/party music.
