Essentially snagging these for $250, cause I mean c'mon. Who doesn't shop at Amazon.

I bought these over 15 years ago from Amazon for $349...I never really used them (don't wear headphones much at home), and sold them on craigslist a couple years ago for $250.

So, yes, I'd say that for essentially $250 (you do pay tax on extra $150), you can't really go wrong.

PS. I found the headphones too hot, and too neutral for my tastes.

This deal's been up for a while.. snagged it couple weeks ago. I did own a pair since early 2000s, then sold and now bought again. Excellent headphone for a great price. Quite unforgiving, though.

Just curious. I own the 598s and have a small amp with it that increases the bass a bit. I know the 600s have a higher impedence so require an amp. Have you ever used the 598s (burned in, of course)? If so, how would you compare them? Are the 600s that noticeably better? Personally, I would say the 598s are surprisingly forgiving given their clarity.

I upgraded from the HD595's (older version of 598) up to the HD600, and I'll say that at first I thought the HD595 was more colorful - read: a bit more bass, a bit more treble - but after using the HD600 for a few more months I've come to the conclusion that I like the HD600 more. Tighter, more snug fit, super neutral (which I LOVE), and the sound is very full when you amp them. I use a homemade O2 headphone amp with my iPod 5G (upgraded caps and HPF), but my rMBP has plenty of power to drive them without an amp.

Honestly, I wouldn't upgrade to the HD600 from the HD595 if I had another chance. The only reason I did is because my wife wanted her own pair of nice headphones, so I took the opportunity to get the HD600 to try them out. They're very similar in sound to me, a budget audiophile.

HD595 with an amp vs HD600 with an amp is pure subjective opinion. Both sound incredible.

Edit: Reading that 'forgiving' comment, I guess that's the only downside of the HD600's. I listen to 320kbps rips from CD's (and some lossless), and with the HD600, I can really tell if the studio did a poor job of mastering the album (scrachy sounds, hiss, etc); whereas I could not tell as much with the HD595's. But when the studio did a great job with the master, the HD600's win by a small margin.

When I bought these about a week ago I didn't have to pay tax on the $150 giftcard, only the $250 for the headphones.

If youre a basshead like myself, go with the hd650's, and never upgrade again.

Thanks. I got the 598s for $100 on a special sale Amazon was having at 2 am or so one night about a year and a half ago. I jumped on them without even thinking about it. It was a no-brainer. I burned them in and liked them a lot (noticed a big improvement in warmth after the burn in), but thought they were still lacking in bass a bit, so I saw a SD post on the Brainwavz amp for $16, normally about $25, and am happy with it. It boosts volume slightly and bass noticeably without adding coloration. I've always liked a flat sound, with natural but noticeable bass. For example, I use no equalizer on my home stereo and have the tone controls defeated.

Some say the 598s sound a little better than the 595s, others say they sound basically the same. I wouldn't know. But I would expect the 600s to be a step above, though not as nice as the 650s or 700s. Personally, I've only heard the 598s, the 201s (not half bad given that I got them for $13. Decent highs and mids, very little bass, SUPER light and easy to wear for hours), and the 202s (just awful in every respect, especially comfort).

it is a good step into hifi. and can be endgame for some. not sure if this applies to this deal but you could always buy them and return if not our cup of tea
