I never even tried them, I went straight to comply as my old IEMs used the same model.

About 3-4 weeks with ~10 hours per week of listening. I use them until I notice a change in the sound, at that point they are usually starting to fall apart slightly

That's what I thought. I've had mine for over 4 months and they're being held together with superglue.

I gave in and ordered two new sets.

I got the ATH-AD700s, ATH-M50s and a pair of Grado SR60i with the donut pads. Do me fine for now.

Also have the Koss KSC75 and Apple IEMs for portable use (though I use the ATH-M50s for that as well).

Do I need to provide a pic?

You guys think that there would be a pretty nice improvement upgrading from HD 280 Pros to HD 595/598s? Ordered a Xonar DX a few days ago so I'm looking to improve my audio setup a bit.

IMO the 595/598s are better in almost every way. They're much more comfortable, and have a much larger soundstage (obviously). I also find all music tends to sound better (lows are tighter, mids are more engaging, highs are smoother). The 280s have much more isolation going for them, so for DJ'ing or public listening they'd be more suited, but in terms of pure fidelity I'd say the 595s/598s are a definite improvement. Some may suggest you save money and go for the 555/558s assuming they're less money, and perform the foam-removing "mod" that supposedly makes them sound identical to their higher-priced brethren.

They sound pretty nice but I don't have a good comparison. Just my buddies B&W 803's but that's a town over and higher end home speakers.
