Sennheiser HD 598 Headphones Review

I have had my Sennheiser HD 598 Headphones for about five months now.  They are definitely my favorite headphones of all time.  They are way more comfortable than Beats headphones.  I purchased the Beats Solo 2 a while back, and I was very dissatisfied with them.  Beats headphones may look nice, but they are actually pretty low quality compared to other headphones on the market.  Beats headphones are bass-heavy and just uncomfortable.  Your ears will feel weird after wearing them for more than an hour.  The Sennheiser HD 598 Headphones are very comfortable, as they are over-ear rather than on-ear like the Beats.  The Sennheiser HD 598 Headphones also support a more neutral and balanced sound signature.  The Beats have a more bass-heavy sound signature like I mentioned earlier.  It really comes down to preference, but a lot people agree bass-heavy headphones tend to have poor sound quality.  The Sennheiser HD 598 Headphones have a closed back variation called the HD 598 Cs.  Closed back headphones offer better sound isolation which is good if you are in a noisy environment.  Open back headphones offer better sound quality and sound stage, but they will leak more sound out of your headphones.  I recommend the default version if you stay home more, but if you are on the move often, then I recommend you to get the closed back version.  As always, the links to the products are below, and I hope you look into buying these headphones as they have enhanced my music listening experience tremendously.
