Thread Details

Lowest price I've seen so far on these cans - really great sound for a great price if you don't mind the 'earth tone' color scheme.

4.7 star rating with 1,500+ reviews on Amazon

Note that these are open-air designs - meaning they are not noise cancelling and let in external noise quite easily and in fact those around you will hear the music if you listen even at moderate volumes in a quiet environment (i.e at work).

Incorrect. It has a 50 ohm impedance so it will require more gain than your average earbuds, but it does not need an amp.

The samsung phones are low on voltage compared to iphone you should get an iphone if your more about audio the sound quality is also superior to samsung which uses a good codec but its poorly implemented.

The Sennheiser HD 598s are the cheapest high rating FPS gaming headphone that's at the commercial audiophile(mid tier) level. This is probably the best all around deal for any pc gamer or someone looking for a jack of all trades headset for cheap at the pc. Sure there is nicer but there is nothing this low in price that ranks so high in gaming(beats out many other more expensive headphones for 3d placement rendering via sound really you dont dont want to spend too much on a gaming headphone cause its just rendering gunshots on many setups it doesnt need an amp thus saving allot of money), music, comfort, and also does well in most music genres. Why buy an Astro? Sure its wireless(bluetooth uses an inferior audio codec), but why would you buy speakers(headphones) the single most contributing factor to any sound system from a "computer audio" company thats been in the game for 10 years when you can buy from an audio company doing it for 100 years(Sennheiser also tailors their offerings to the latest devices better thats why Momentum is so good with iphone) of course tho this model came out before all of that........."ets wireless".... wires are superior(1. has to go through more processing chips introducing more lag than wired 2.Audio quality is inferior compared to wired 3. Shortest distance between 2 points is a line.... not a packet cloud)

This price doesnt look that low to me how low do these get?
