    Recently splurged for these pair of cans. Extremely good piece of audio equipment, the HD 598s are perfect for what I want. A great headphone with a large soundstage, great mids and highs that aren't tiring or have sibilance. While many people state that they lack bass, after some burn-in I found that these have the perfect amount of bass, even for EDM music.

    Absolutely flawless. They are comfortable, and if you have the AMP (I use my motherboard's) they sound amazing. Games, movies and music really comes to life, and I don't know how I lived without these. ;)

    The best headphones I have ever used. The comfiest headphones I have ever used. The nicest-looking headphones I have ever used. And the best sounding audio I have ever heard. These are cheaper than Beats, feel lighter than earphones, and have more bass than a subwoofer. I'm a student who needs to be able to hear the teacher when its time to stop listening to music so I need open-back headphones, or earphones, and these are flawless allowing me to hear everything outside perfectly, while barely bleeding any sound. I use these to go running with and they never feel like they are falling, and I use these for gaming over my Turtle Beaches because I just play better with them. Ive never had a complaint while wearing them and only got compliments from others who either own them now or want to. If you are thinking of getting these I promise you can't regret it. (P.S. I also purchased a 3rd party 4ft cable and do not use the stock 6m cable.)

    Everything sounds better with these on. Make sure to enable high fidelity streaming from Spotify.

    Sound amazing, although beige and brown, is this Noctua design?
