Having trouble deciding between HD 558/958's

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
First, I am not an audio guy so I have no clue what the difference between these two headphones are that warrant a price difference of $100 full retail.
Not really sure what the difference would be between the two. They will be used pretty much exclusively for gaming.

I can pick up the 558's for $200 CAD from NCIX or the 958's from ebay for $260 ish, I am just wondering if it would be a worth while investment to go for the 958's. Also I just ordered the Creative Sound Blaster ZXR.

Obviously I can compare the specifications of each and see the differences but what does it mean for gaming?

I'm assuming you mean 558 vs 598.

For gaming, the difference is pretty much 0.

The 598 is basically a refinement of the 558. Improves comfort, sound stage, frequency response, etc. Nothing super major in any one area, but a nice cumulative effect. Is it worth the money? Now, that's a much harder question.

Thanks for the quick response, that's all I needed to decide.

Going to go with the 558's.
