The HD600s are definitely a tier above in quality. HD598s are the top open-air headphones in the $100-150 range. HD600s are a sidegrade to top headphones in the $250+ range. HD650s are a sidegrade to top headphones in the $300-400+ range.

Here's where it gets funny HD650s are considered a side-grade to the HD600s. There are a lot of headphones in the $200-$600 range that are effectively sidegrades. They all do different things well - some bass, some soundstage, some treble. When you're talking HD598s, there are headphones that are *upgrades*. For instance, HD600s are an extremely neutral headphone. HD600s don't have a much bass at all, but are extremely neutral. Some people absolutely love them, other people find them to be "boring." HD650s are the response to those complaints of "boring" and add some bass to the equation. The point I'm making? 600s do everything extremely well, but they excel at being neutral - they're an end-game pair of cans (as are the HD650s) and measure up to any other cans you throw at them.

Now the 598s. They're considered great headphones, but I rarely see anyone throw them in an end-game arsenal. They do everything well, but nothing perfect. They're a bit bassier than the HD600s, do treble better than the HD650s. But if you want bassier headphones there are better bassy headphones out there (Fidelio X2s). If you want treble, there are bettle treble-oriented headphones out there. The HD650s sound *smooth* as fark and are a pleasure to listen to, the HD598s are smoother than damn near anything under $150 - but just not as smooth as the 650s/600s. I have a pair of 650s & 598s - the 598s sound really really good, but I'd never use them if my 650s were near.

Where do the 598s excel? Cost. To get HD600s/HD650s to "endgame sound" you need an amp with them. The 598s sound a little better with an amp, but it's not as necessary. This isn't audiophile bullshit. This isn't $150 USB cord trash. You legitimately need an amp or they wont sound as good. The cheapest amp that I recommend is the Schiit Magni 2 for $100. This is an end-game solid state amp that can power damn near anything. Don't settle for one of the cheaper FiiO amps - it just doesn't have the power to get the HD600s/650s going.

If you dont have a pair of really good headphones, you'll be more than happy with the HD598s. If you already have a great pair, the 598s will sound decent - but you'll probably like another pair for their strengths.

Hasn't it been like 20+ years since the 6xx line has been refreshed?

It's been forever lol. I think it all started with the HD565 or HD545 and progressed slowly over time to now the HD650.

Don't support this awful company. They are Ebay nazis. They are known to get your listings closed down if you list their items. Imagine if every company did that? Ugh. Do not like!

I finally got HD600 a few weeks ago, now I see what all the fuss is about. My music has been behind a veil my whole life, these things even with a Fiio USB DAC/amp are amazing.

how does it not make sense? if you list a item with a competitive price that adorama also lists on ebay, they'll report your listing so it gets taken down.
