Sennheiser HD598 CS Experience
I was on a lookout for a pair of headphones and saw this on sale for 7000 INR. This is a real deal compared to the asking price of USD 125 to 150 in US Amazon. I jumped on this deal without second thoughts. After receiving them and wearing them, I can say within the first few hours of usage that these are the most comfortable headphones that I’ve owned till date. I’ve continuously worn them for more than 4-5 hours when listening to music. The dialogues are very clear in movies. Additionally, they have a great passive noise isolation. I’ve read a lot of reviews that these do not have adequate bass. I might disagree with them. It has a very decent bass and it sounds natural. Comes with 2 cables – One to be used on the go which is a 1.2m cable with 3.5mm jack, microphone and in-line single-button remote & another for home entertainment: and 3m cable with 6.3mm jack meant for home listening. My mobile phones and laptops had no problem driving these headphones.
Coming to the negatives, these don’t come with a pouch or a hard case, nor do they fold. Though the isolation works pretty well, there is some sound leak at higher volumes. Overall, considering the price for which I bought them they are a hell of a deal.
