Re-cabling can cost as much as the headphones, so not an option I suppose. Maybe wrap it around into a donut shape to shorten it a bit.

Here is the only difference I've noticed between Sennheiser HD595 and HD598. HD595 sounds tad bit warmer if my memory serves me right. HD598 sounded bit brighter than HD595 and vocals are maybe bit more forward. In case you're wondering, I've used HD598s for about 2 months. Soundstage and bass wise, I am unable to comment. Sounds exact the same to me.

That concludes my very brief comparison of Sennheiser HD598 and HD595.

I knew it. I knew the people on Head-Fi were overhyping the whole HD598 thing. "It's better than the HD650, folks." Yeah, right.

You could conclude this if you were inclined and biased against it. What makes his 3 line review that seems to be based on his memory of the 595 more valid than those crazies on Headfi who seem to think that a $500 cable is a worthwhile investment? I'm not a fan of either one, but his "review" seems quite slapdash.

No, I'm just really skeptical that a color change, addition of some wood accents, some internal revisions and a $100 bump in price suddenly would result in the "best headphone ever."

I'm all for the new Sennhesier 500 line.. it makes the older line much cheaper biggrin.gif.
I'm glad to know I'm not missing too much with my 595s. Thanks for the review, voxox!

By increasing the upper range frequencies a bit, I get the same HD598 and a bit brighter. The HD598 cups were also warm and I would still increase the upper frequencies anyway.

I still can't grasp over people complaining HD555, HD595 and 598 lacking in the lower spectrum - bass. The bass on the HD595 is almost the same as on my HD212 pro (HD212 pro known for its bass), plenty of thump and 'wup wup' It also has to do with the LME49720NA. It boosts the lower frequencies.

e.g.

EDIT:
@krameriffic
Actually, the review was based on my memory of the HD598 cans not the other way around. If I could summarize the HD598 to the HD595, I would say it in two words: "bit brighter"
