A dream come true.
Loved loved everything about this product. When I first started my audiophile journey I wanted these so badly for the color and just how many people enjoyed them. Im so happy these got a second run and you bet I use them daily. My favorite headphones to game while my 6XX are for music. Ah.

Great value for under $150, not sure about $200
These headphones are either great or "meh" based on the price. If you can find them for $120-$130 which was roughly for what I purchased, then these are a great deal. They are decent for $150, but I would have to say no for $200. Honestly, you'd be much better served with an HD560s or an HD58x than these for $200. The comfort is decent and is just like any in Sennheiser's 500 line of headphones to include their PC37x and PC38x. I have a slightly larger than average head and ears, and I don't suffer from any fatigue from wearing these for any length of time. The sound is also pretty decent (based on the pricing as I described above). The bass frequencies are fairly responsive and have ok detail. The mids are great as is usual with Sennheiser, and the treble I found really nothing to complain about. My only issue I found to be the slightly bloated bass with a tendency to have a slight bleed into the mids with the mids being kind of drowned out in bass heavy audio. While overall these are good headphones, I truly find no sense in getting these things when the HD560s does everything that this does and better. Like I stated above, if you can find these things in the low $100s, I would give my full recommendation. If however you're looking to spend anything close to $200 then I would highly recommend the HD560s or the HD58x if the Sennheiser sound is what you're after.

SuganamiTotally agree with your review, especially "My only issue I found to be the slightly bloated bass with a tendency to have a slight bleed into the mids." ...For this reason I slightly prefer the HD 598 which are properly balanced and allow the mids to shine. Both 598 and 599 I use for TV watching since they have light clamping and very comfortable to wear. For music I go to HD 6XX, but for TV no, cause they clamp too hard. I'm curious if the HD 58x Jubilee are better than the HD 598 and 599?? Do they sound better? And how does the clamping and comfort compare? I know they are 150 ohms vs the 598 and 599 being 50 ohms. I plug into my AV receiver.

lawpennerI can't say anything regarding the 598 since I've never listened to it, but I believe my 58x is definitely better than my 599. I find my 58x to be more detailed overall with noticeably more detailed bass response. I find the 599 to have more impact in the low frequencies, but like I mentioned previously, I value the more "refined" bass response of the 58x. The rest of the frequency response I find to be rather comparable between the two with the 58x being slightly more detailed. As far as comfort goes, the 599 is more comfortable for me than my 58x. The peaks of the pads of the 58x kind of "dig in" around my ear due to the slightly higher clamping force, but it isn't anything that I ever found to be outright uncomfortable. My 58x did get more comfortable over time with wear of the pads. You'd be very familiar with the feeling of the 58x since you have a 6xx. The two are more or less identical in wear comfort. I've been able to drive both the 599 and 58x with my cheap $20 dongle DAC connected to my phone with no issue if that gives you an idea of the power requirements. The 58x definitely scales better than the 599 when powered with a proper amp/DAC. I normally run my headphones through the following setups from my PC: Schiit Bifrost 2 -> Schiit Jotunheim 2 / Lyr 3 JDS Labs Element 3

Wow, excellent for bass heads
These are absolutely incredible. I thought these wouldn't compare to the 6XX, but man was I wrong. The 6XX has a more even sound, while these have a higher bass. Both the 6XX and these 599s are my top 2 go to's for music listening. I swap depending on the genre.

A unique look with classic sound
This is my fourth product from Sennheiser and it really is a hit. My only complaints are that it does have a kinda creaky plastic feel, it's pretty clampy to start with, the headband is a little on the uncomfortable side (not enough padding), and the cable locking mechanism is a little weird. Now with that out of the way, the sound is very unique. Given the color scheme, I think it matches the theory behind these headphones. It is my suspicion that this is meant to be a more vintage/oldies sounding headphone. Cracks and pops from either lofi music or oldies recordings really have a vintage feel to them. They are fun in my opinion. The 3d effect of sound is overall good and can give you good indications of where opponents are coming from in games. I am not sure I'd get them as an all-day-everyday set, but I am not in the least disappointed by them and love the sound they make.

Quality For the price
I bought these during the last drop and I’m very satisfied. The price could have been lower, I’ve seen these go for 150 occasionally on amazon. I use them primarily for gaming (valorant and Tarkov) where hearing is absolutely vital. I would have died many more times than I have if I didn’t have this headset.

That's only true if you have $100. It's chump change if you have $100,000.

BuckStricklandI got mine for the sale price of $79.98 on Amazon, and they're usually around $120.00; I'm surprised they cost more on Drop.
