Sennheiser HD 598 headphones

Sennheiser has taken the wraps off its latest luxury headphones. The speaker and headphone specialist has added three new headphones to its 500 series of luxury earcandy this summer.

The Sennheiser HD 598 are the top-end option, and are designed for the ultimate in listening quality and comfort. Polished burl wood encircles the oval earpads which are themselves covered in velour for comfort.

All three headphones in the 500 series include EAR (Eargonomic Acoustic Refinement) technology, delivering sound straight to the ear and resulting in “impeccable sound quality”.

Sennheiser says a special diaphragm geometry minimises intermodulation distortion while delivering an impressive frequency response range. Neodymium ferrous magnets are used to improve the frequency response. The HD 598 headphones come with a 3.5mm audio jack and can be used with a range of Hi-Fi and portable audio players.
