And head-fi has me jealously eyeing some rather pricey electrostats...

'stats have great detail and that exotic allure, but they seem to struggle to be neutral or accurate a lot of the time. i mean, the FR charts for most 'stats speak for themselves. from what i have seen, dynamic is cheaper and better...and can actually have decent bass

Would recommend ATH-M50s personally.

so I just picked this up new for 150 during the razer half off sale thingy, for 150 bucks would this be considered a good deal?

HD 598 are good, but not great, comfy but not the best. Personally I feel they are only worth $150 if that

Sony MA900 are $200 and best the HD 598 in every possible way. light, metal construction better base, more open, full sound stage

But the WINNER BY FAR




Phillips Fidelio X1 !!!

I own all three of the above headphones.

X1 wins in comfort and sound quality over HD598 easily, and by a wide margin in build quality. I rotate between MA900 and my X1's depending on mood if its music.....gaming is X1 every time without fail


WANT TO SPEND $300 wisely? Buy the X1 or wait for X2 model coming at some point. Wont be sorry!

If you are curious about what others say or more detailed things I've had to say about all three sets of cans, go over to head-fi and search the same user name I have on here and read some of my posts in the thread I frequent.

HD598 used to be king maybe.......Phillips gave it a Spartan kick down a dark hole thumb.gif

I own MA900s.. are the Fidelio X1s that good?

It's hard to imagine anything really being "better" than the ma900s. The only thing I dislike about them is the build quality. I have to constantly re-adjust the headband, my hair use to always get ripped out by them too until I put some electric tape on the side to cover up the exposed headband mechanisms.

Sexy you say? wait until you see this unboxing that was done for the Kraken Forged. Even the CEO of Razer posted this on his fb and twitter accounts today!

Bought the Kraken Forged last week, sound quality has been disappointing to be honest. And I have been experiencing discomfort (pain) on the ears after an hour of use. Anyone else experiencing this as well?
