Can anyone compare these to the Sennheiser HD 598s, which today only are going for $100 on Amazon? I'm pretty new to high-end headphone shopping. Are these AKGs worth paying the extra $100, or should I cancel my order?

$113 on amazon.ca!?? That's a pretty good price. I'm sort of torn about the price. looked at this comparison a bit ago

Rated # 5 on head fi. I'm going for the sennheiser. Half the price and as much quality that i could ever appreciate.

Hope you got it. I like mine better than my 702s.

I hope you got the 598s while available as at least a backup to think for a while. The 598s sold out in about 4 hours. "Thousands sold".

If you want some great high quality cables of different lengths made for the 598s, go to eBay electronics and search Sennheiser HD 598 cable. Very high quality and not expensive. Not sure about sound improvement.
