Sophisticated design for exceptional sound
The '598s smooth and balanced sound is true to the original recording, without the sonic coloration that sometimes plagues other headphones. Sennheiser's advanced drivers and open-air design help eliminate distortion, superbly re-creating the dynamics and details of your music. The end result is a spaciousness and accuracy that will amaze you, and keep you listening far into the night.
So comfortable, all you'll feel is the music
Plush velour earcups gently cover your ears (even if you wear glasses) allowing you to enjoy long listening sessions in total comfort. The single-sided headphone cord is detachable, so you can easily untangle it. Plus, if the cord gets damaged, you can simply replace it rather than purchase a whole new pair of headphones.
From the review Comfortable acoustics: relaxing with the Sennheiser HD 598 headphones
"I thoroughly enjoyed the long listening sessions I had with the Sennheiser HD 598 headphones. Even after four or five hours, they felt just as comfortable as when I first put them on. Regardless of what genre of music I chose, the headphones reproduced the songs with fidelity and clarity. And for active listening, that's all I need."
