oh, a Vietnamese guy here. I have 598, 58x and 650. I would say 58x or 650; 598 is not at 58x level even when I plug them to the smart phone; 598 sounds harsh and thin. 58x is on par 650; but 650 is a better cans for bolero/vocals which I mostly listen to.

Okay I bought the HD 58x. I think the HD 598 can not keep up with the new generation of audiophile headphones anymore, therefore the price of only 100usd. In the past those HD 598s were around 200usd! You said the HD 58x is on par with the HD 6xx family, so those play in a higher league. For only 150 USD the HD 58x is a no brainer! Thanks for the response brother.

I moved to Germany a while ago. I'm confident that my package will arrive safely here. Why does Singapore not support this??

The HD 598 / 599 couldn't keep up with the old generation of Sennheiser audiophile headphones! They were definitely a step back when compared to the original HD 580's or even the HD 565 Ovation's. I think that a more interesting comparison would be the original 580 vs. the 58X vs. the 600. The 598 & 599 were never audiophile headphones, in my opinion.

funny how confusing that is. usually the new product line up should be an improvement to the old ones. but this time around it is the other way around. maybe their aim with the hd 59x was not to make audiophile headphones, but to make good entry level headphones for the average consumer! but the price for the hd 598 was 250usd(?) back then...
