Pros: The TV was priced well. The sound was exceptionally good for an internal system.
Cons: Delivery was awful, it came in a beaten up box from an obscure company which had clearly been dropped several times. Lower part of the screen was cracked. One bad pixel on the rest of the screen.
Other Thoughts: Newegg processed my returned immediately. I'm still waiting on the new TV though. If I had to do it all over again I'd be tempted to pay a little more and buy local.
I'll continue to buy computer hardware from NewEgg that could be shipped through traditional channels, but I doubt I would buy a large fragile item again from NewEgg.
This review is from: Sennheiser HD598 On-Ear Headphones
Pros: The headphones sound terrific and they look great. I listen primarily to Jazz, however I noticed that since I have had these I've gained a greater appreciation for other genres, specifically classical.
They are extremely comfortable to wear for an extended period of time. There is no fatigue after several hours like I got with other headphones.
The other reviews cover the more technical aspects better than I could so I will defer to the audiophiles.
Cons: Here's my biggest suggestion, get an extended adapter, even if it's ten or fifteen dollars extra.
Here's why: Out of the box these headphones will have a 1/4" connector (big plug for stereo systems) and a 1/8" adapter that connects directly to the 1/4" (what your IPhone uses). So if you are connecting this to your laptop or iphone you are adding the equivalent of a solid 3-4 inch lever on a fragile output jack.
This is such a big oversight I was tempted to give the headphones 4 stars. This is the Sennheiser accountants trying to save a couple bucks per headphone by going cheap on the adapter, nothing more. So I would highly recommend any number of extended adapters that don't put so much pressure on the jacks.
Other Thoughts: These are not for listening to music on a metro. They are an open design headphone so while they sound terrific the sound will bleed out.
I'm still waiting for my amplifier to come in. I may update this review after I head them with additional power.
