Sennheiser HD 598 Audiophile Headphones

The Sennheiser HD 598 is reminiscent of days gone by. The cream-colored surfaces and a dark wood grain effect, with a glossy metalic trim, give it a luxurious feel and also transport you to the 1970s, when it was all about sound and music and having a great time.

The Sennheiser HD 598 and its special diaphragm geometry minimises intermodulation distortion and its compressed cellulose fleece ear covers, ensure that you get a total harmonic distortion of under 0.1 per cent. All this makes listening to music a pleasure on these headphones. They are designed to reproduce sounds as low as 12 Hz to such highs as 38.5 KHz. If you recall from your physics class, our ears are only designed to listen to sounds between 20 Hz and 20KHz. This range therefore ensures that every note that comes out is rendered clearly.

 Sennheiser HD 598

Not only are the HD-598 aesthetically pleasing to the eyes but they also provide an impeccable sound quality and unrivalled comfort. These beige-coloured open, circumaural headphones come with high-gloss burl wood parts and matching ear pads for a sophisiticated, premium finish. With Sennheiser‘s innovative E.A.R. technology, audio signals are directly channelled into your ears. These headphones also incorporate a special diaphragm geometry that minimizes intermodulation distortion while delivering an impressive frequency response range, plus a highly constant compressed cellulose fleece to hold harmonic distortion to less than 0.1%. And to accentuate the already outstanding listening experience even further, their high-quality leatherette headband and velour ear pads provide outstanding wearing comfort, even for long listening sessions.

Sennheiser 500 Series

A symbiosis of top technology and the option of an extravagant or classic design. The new 500 Series from audio specialist Sennheiser is the ideal choice for highly discerning music lovers. The three new models, the HD 598, HD 558 and HD 518, are now replacing the successful predecessor models in the audiophile segment. 

To ensure a top-quality stereo sound experience, the three open, dynamic high-end headphones are equipped with Sennheiser’s specially developed E.A.R. (Eargonomic Acoustic Refinement) technology. Acoustic baffles inclined at a slight angle guide the audio signal directly to the ears. As a result, the excellent sound is optimally channelled. Powerful neodymium magnets and proven Duofol diaphragms guarantee natural, lifelike reproduction of even the finest musical details, while low-vibration plastic materials prevent distortions to the sound image. The HD 558 and HD 598 also feature a sound reflector that optimises the spatial sound effect. A gold-plated 6.3 mm audio jack plug provides an optimum connection to the audio source. A new feature is the detachable cable: the bayonet plug is unlocked with a simple twist, allowing it to be easily removed.

HD 598: Aesthetics for high demands

The new HD 598 combines style and sound quality at the highest level. The high-end headphones have an impressively unique design. Cream-coloured surfaces, dark wood grain effect and glossy metallic trim suggest luxury and elegance, rounded off with a highly attractive, exclusive silhouette.

The HD 598 also combines the best of the best when it comes to its technical features. Proven Sennheiser acoustics already ensured that the predecessor model was the reference for headphones. A special diaphragm geometry minimises intermodulation distortion during sound reproduction, while a highly constant, compressed cellulose fleece reduces total harmonic distortion to below 0.1 percent. The frequency response is 12 to 38,500 Hertz.
