The flexibility of the headphone is yet another outstanding feature of this product. It is much more flexible than any of the higher-end models, and you can use it as roughly as possible. The promise of German engineering is very well delivered by Sennheiser in this headphone. Other features and Price The HD 598 and HD 599 are extremely close in sound performance, with a slightly tweaked driver. Indeed the specs are the same – it’s mostly a facelift with different colour scheme and materials used.Paired with the right source material, the 38mm dynamic drivers make the HD 599 sound good. However, the frequency response we measure deviates from our headphone preference curve, which we consider to work best for the majority of source material and listeners. There’s a sizeable volume bump where the low mids meet with the bass frequencies. While Sennheiser imbues the HD 599 with a favorable curve in the highs (i.e., it’s sort of close to our ideal before 10kHz), the exaggerated low-mids and bass can make that added treble clarity and detail get lost, especially above 10kHz. P.S. I've noticed that the 598 sounds bit darker on my onboard compared to AMP, so that also could be the case for not having an amp.

Carroll is a headphone junkie residing in Brooklyn. He's a huge fan of Grado, UK hip hop, and the English Language in general. When not testing audio equipment or writing, you'll find him taking photographs or fiddling with circuit boards. Without too much emphasis/deemphasizing the mid bass, the frequencies of the sound profile are excellent.
What’s the difference between the Sennheiser HD 599 and Sennheiser x Drop HD 6XX?
I got the HD580 after a rave review in Stereophile, but lost interest after awhile because it was too distant. Then the HD600 and 650 original edition (which was essentially the same as the 600), and while they were nice, they were just too ‘sweet’ or polite etc. – boring I thought. I settled for awhile on a Grado SR325 and a Senn HD565, which were similar in sound, but I’ve never heard the current HD650.
