I'm about to buy the new HD598 headphones: http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/components/componentview.asp?partid=13813
Before I do, looking for advice if anyone believes there is a better alternative for under $500.
My requirements are basically 90% used at home, watching movies, listening to music and playing games. Crystal clear, high quality sound is important to me as well as comfort. Wireless, microphones, noise cancellation are of no interest / non-requirement.
Also, most reviews I have read, claim that the HD598 is a fair step ahead of the HD558 in audio quality. Unlike the "strip of foam" incident with its precedessors the HD555/595. Is this true?
I appreciate any input, thanks.
