The open back HD 599 delivers impressively natural spatial performance. Topping Sennheiser’s 500 series, the full sized premium headphone offers near-audiophile levels of sound quality and exceptional wearing comfort thanks to the large ear cups and soft replaceable ear pads.
My only complaint is that im not a fan of the fabric of the ear cushions. A minor complaint which is just personal preference.
Other than that, everything is 10/10
I have tested several over-ear headphones in terms of wearing comfort and sound. The HD 569 (which I already had) and the HD 599 were by far the best in this regard. The headphones reproduce any music whether classical, rock or pop with equal transparency and neutrality. The optics and workmanship of the HD 599 are very valuable and reflect the good quality of the headphone. For on-the-go use it might be better if the 1.2m cable comes with a 3.5mm right-angle plug. Definitely five stars!
I have mm400 that sounds better. The 599 lacks bass & highs are somewhat tinny. EQ doesn't help much. Guess I'll keep the old pair until I find something better.
Lows come through well, but highs are muddy. Fit was too tight for my wide head.
