Sennheiser HD598 On-Ear Headphones
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Great Headphones, but get an optional adapter 11/24/2012

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.
