3.0 out of 5 stars Review after 2 years of use
By Emmanuel on November 28, 2018
These headphones sound amazing. I use them for gaming and music. These are literally the only pair of headphones that do not make my ears hurt after a long period of use. They are EXTREMELY comfortable you will forget you have them on. The only problem is that they start too peel and crack which is now annoying me because you’re left with black dust on your hair and face. I keep my headphones on a stand and they do not leave my house so it’s not something I did. I don’t know if this is still a problem but you should keep this in mind before purchasing these headphones.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality decent closed back headphone, if a little heavy
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on November 27, 2016
Good all rounder. I've been looking for a decent set of closed back headphones for a while. Having owned the open back HD570 for years (and years!) I wanted a pair of phones that didn't suffer sound leakage. Open back are great for quality and personal listening (as in, nobody else around) but not so great if there is someone nearby. Closed back provides noise isolation which is the main reason for my purchase. Closed back does change the sound but not in a bad way.

These are a new product from Sennheiser, all but a month old and, along with all of the other 5 series headphones, largely conform to similar pricing when not on offer. That they were on offer for Black Friday deals is a bonus - a popular price tracking site (think desert animal x 3) shows these hovering at £199.99 since 2nd November.

Compared to the HD570 open back headphones I own, these headphones feel heavy and tend to pinch more than they realistically need to. I'm sure I can put that down to the extra material for noise isolation and my slightly larger than average head, but I imagine I'd get ear/head fatigue after a long listening session compared to the HD570, which I often forget are on my head they're so comfortable. Comfort then is the reason for the loss of a star.

The trade-off it seems for having a closed back pair in the HD598Cs compared to the open backed HD570 is weight and comfort. That HD598Cs has 23ohm impedance means that smaller devices like mobile phones and personal stereos (do they exist any more?!) have a chance of driving the music better, giving you better volume at lower levels of power (read: your battery will last longer) than could be achieved with higher impedance headphones, like my HD570 (64ohm).

The headphones are provided with two cables, one for at home listening with a decent amplifier using a 3m cable and 2.5" jack end. The other is for use with a mobile device and provides a simple toggle for play/pause. The cables include a twist locking mechanism on the headphone end jack which isn't particularly clear but you're not likely to be changing the cable often enough for that to become a serious issue.

3.0 out of 5 stars Belle, Buon suono ma problema padiglioni
Reviewed in Italy on August 29, 2018
La cuffia è buona come qualità costruttiva in generale ,salvo piccoli(grandi) errori,molto comoda,si tiene in testa bene per ore e ore ,i padiglioni sono molto morbidi e comodi (non sostotuibili e ora vi dico dove sta il problema) ,l audio è a mio parere molto bilanciato,non ci sono bassi pompati ma tutte le frequenze vengono (ripeto a mio parere di non audiofilo) riprodotte con fedeltà. La cuffia è buona se non fosse che perde 2 stelle perché i padiglioni (ripeto NON SOSTITUIBILI) si stanno disintegrando probabilmente a causa del caldo e del sudore d estate. Allego foto e chiedo... possibile che una cuffia da oltre 100 euro prodotta da un'azienda come Sennheiser che è sul mercato audio da anni possa non prevedere una cosa del genere?!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great new headphones!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on May 10, 2017
Stunning pair of headphones. As I am a student, these are rather expensive for only a set of headphones, as I normally get <£20 cheap ones. These are okay, but the difference is night and day. These are the greatest set of headphones I have ever owned. The ear pads go all around the ear with no discomfort (however there is a small lump at the rear inside the ear cup, and with large ears, I hit this a few times. It doesn't hurt, just sometimes feel uncomfortable - see pictures). The sound quality is great, the bass is powerful, and even on full blast on my iPhone, with them on, you can't hear a thing outside, and people can't hear your music. I have listened to all kinds of music and these are purely amazing. It is really hard to describe, but I am sure they will sound great to everybody (I hope). Very comfortable, great headphones for music and gaming!
