Recently bought the 560s and have been super pleased except for a couple of things. I use them for music, movies, and PC gaming. When gaming (CoD: Vanguard), the sound will occasionally fade out (not completely) for a couple of seconds then back to normal. Sometimes with a soft squeaky/static sound in one or both sides. It is hooked up to my computer through a DAC which is more than powerful enough to drive it. Has anyone had this issue with this headphone or any other Sennheiser? This is my first step into the audiophile arena. Wasn't sure if this was normal or could it be the game? I have only noticed it when gaming, but I also spend more time doing that.

These vs the 598x Jubilees? For competitive FPS gaming primarily.

these, they have more sound stage. but if you are competitive FPS gamer, I would get the PC37x or PC38x instead.
These HD 560S. Better sense of imaging (direction), more linear response. PC38X have a less reference, analytical sound and trade competitiveness for fun. Honesty, neither are boring or overly colored, I like them both, but the HD 58X Jubilee is different because it’s more colored and has less imaging precision than the HD 560S and gaming headsets.

Worth upgrading from the HD598S?

Absolutely, the clarity difference alone is crazy, along with a much wider soundstage. As long as you're not bothered by more treble content, it's an amazing set of headphones.

I have these and the HD 6xx, and I like these more. Deeper bass, wider soundstage, better highs (no veil), more comfortable and require less power.

Does anyone know if the pads are replaceable on this model?
Is that like saying “Any pizza can be a personal pizza with enough time and determination?”

Why do you have to go tempting me like this Drop? I do not own thiese, but everything I have read/personal research is that they have a similiar sound signature to most of the HD series with it's own variation. Build quality is supposed to be more plasticy, but the headphones are super light and clamping power is not as strong (yes please). Pairs well with tubes. Lackluster cable. Needless to say, I think I might be purchasing these.

I own one and I can tell you what you said about the 560s is all true. This one replaces the Hd 58x as the go to headphones for me. For me it had slightly stronger bass and slightly brighter treble. The main difference of this compared to the 6xx and the 58x is that the 560s has a soundstage where all instrument felt like they are placed further away but you can hear them equally loud as opposed to the 6xx and 58x tend to be close and in your head. As a result I can usually pick up instruments I couldn't hear before in a track but at the same time I cannot hear as much details clearly in the vocals as to the 6xx. Overall I love the 560s and imo it will be a great addition to ones collection.
I’ve got tons of headphones, but these still steal ear time. Sennheiser was aiming for a reference headphone and the sound signature is “linear,” so it will be mostly true to the recording, but your own ears will act as a filter and change the sound a bit. What’s the opposite of “plasticy build quality?” These are indeed mostly plastic (with metal grills and metal parts where it’s important), but it’s a nice plastic with a matte texture, good strength, feels pretty stiff without being like hard candy prone to cracking (like Monster Beats by Dre that eventually crack just from the stress of putting them around your ears). And of course, that also means they’re super lightweight… they will spoil you so you won’t want to wear +350g headphones. Clamp… the clamp force is still “snug” not ethereal and cloud-like, but the headband is flexible enough to give for most people’s head and not cause pressure headaches like Pro (musician’s) headphones, and the pressure from weight and clamp is evenly distributed without any focused hotspot (I am starting to bald, and I love the divot at the peak of the headband padding). Eventually, just through wearing them (like about a week), the pads and headband will relax just enough so that the headphones mold perfectly to your head. It’s just like breaking in a pair of new jeans. I have “forget I’m wearing them” headphones and love them too, but sometimes I prefer the snug HD 560S (like when standing, walking, playing video games, or laying back in a chair, hammock, or bed) because it doesn’t slip around. The HD 560S has a fairly high sensitivity, so it’s easy to amp and doesn’t require tons of power (works great on a small Bluetooth dongle), but it has the sweet spot of impedance where it’s just enough to dampen some background noise and allow amps to drive power through it more stably. Any less and it might not be good for many tube amps. The cable is certainly decent, durable and not too heavy, resists kinds, but it’s long and a bit springy. That means it’s a good cable for connecting to your home theater or living room setup, but any cable made for the HD 598 or HD 559 can also be used if you want something different for walking around or on the go (you can even get balanced cables if your amp sounds best like that). Pads are also replaceable and inexpensive, so you could decide to use these for the rest of your life.
