Sennheiser HD 598

10 Reasons why Sennheiser HD 598 is better

than the average

1.Notably higher high-frequency
38500Hzvs 25213Hz (the average)
vs 100000Hz (best: Sony MDR-1ABT)
The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
2.Significantly lower low-frequency
12Hzvs 38Hz (the average)
vs 1Hz (best: Sony MH1CBLK)
The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
3.Has a neodymium magnet
Yesvs No (64% don't have it)
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
4.Reasonably higher sound pressure level
112dB/mWvs 104dB/mW (the average)
vs 130dB/mW (best: Audeze EL-8 Titanium)
Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
5.Has a detachable cable
Yesvs No (64% don't have it)
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
6.Has an over-the-ear form
Yesvs No (58% don't have it)
Comfortable full-size form with earcups that fully enclose your ears. This model is loved for its increased sound isolation and the fact that it won't leak sound to your neighbors. It offers potential for maximum bass and loudness levels.
7.Significantly longer cable
3mvs 2m (the average)
vs 6m (best: AKG Q 701)
A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
8.Is open backed
Yesvs No (90% don't have it)
The device is designed to allow sound out through the back of the earcup and provides very natural and accurate sound. It's good for home listening.
9.Substance over style
Sennheiser headphones don't need to advertise their audio excellence, whereas Beats are just a re-clothed pair of Monsters (I.e. Rubbish). Distortion is the major issue with Beats headphones, and no value for money
10.Not a good comparison
"better" depends on what your use is (in studio, personal listening, etc) and what your personal preference is regarding sound characteristics, open or closed...
