Sennheiser HD 598 Special Edition Over-Ear Headphones
  • The size adjustment has a good range, and it locks into place well even after three years of use, no slipping.
  • My large-headed friend tried them on and agreed that they were extremely comfortable, which is hard for him to find given the size of his noggin.
  • There is a wide range of adjustment on the headband size, so it should fit heads of all sizes.
  • The headphone is light weight, and the ear cups are very comfortable.
  • The weight is non-offensive. They are neither featherlite nor weighty.
  • The weight of the cord cracked the headphone jack on my laptop.
