Big note - these are "open" headphones. They do not block outside sound from coming in, and they do not block your music or whatever from those sitting close to you.

These are great for listening at home, the open style is part of what they sound so good. But they probably aren't appropriate for the library, your work cubicle, or on an airplane / subway.

At the moment $68.22 for Very Good, $72.48 for like new. http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-li...B0126HISOO

Solid. How do these compare to Fidelio X2 in terms of mids and highs

If you have Prime, it's pretty easy to purchase them, try them out, and keep or send back for free.

From the 429 to the 598 SE is an upgrade, whether you think it is worth it is subjective. Both are light and comfortable to wear and the cord is a huge improvement on the 598 SE.

I'm going to guess that most of the returns were due to the SE incorrectly not passing the Sennheiser's authenticity check (the 598 SE was shipped from Sennheiser).

Does it mean that these could be fake?

No, it was an error. My unit failed the test once, but once the issue was widespread and known, Sennheiser fixed it and now my same unit passes.

Nice! I opted to pay a few dollars more for "Used - Like New"

I'll post back about the quality on Tuesday when they arrive.

Practically guaranteed that is what it is. this color was exclusive to Amazon, they had them on sale twice during Xmas, last return date was Jan31st, and now they have a bunch of open boxed ones to sale.

Highly unlikely, as again the SE was made just for Amazon, so counterfeiters would be counterfeiting a lower volume item- People just bought them, tried them for a month, said "not for me" and returned them.
