What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Sennheiser HD 579 Around-Ear Open Back Headphones - Grey
  • Because of the light weight and firm but yet so soft cushion of these headphones it does make it hard to wear any other over the ear headphones.
  • Well, I went ahead and got these and the first thing I noticed was how light they are on my head.
  • It's comfortable even during long sessions since the velour ear pads are soft, the headband is padded, & it's fairly light at about 719 grams/~25 ounces.
  • I love these headphones. Sound great, insanely light and comfortable(the earpads are so soft), I use them for my PC so I'm doing everything media based, music, movies, games.
  • Picked these phones up around the holiday season. The price was appealing at the time. They are very comfortable phones. Light in weight.
Sennheiser HD 599 Around-Ear Open Back Headphones - Ivory
  • These are without a doubt the best headphones I have ever bought. So comfortable worth every penny to the point.
  • Also, most comfy headphone I've tried & very compact aswell
  • I have really big ears lol and it fits perfectly.
  • Can wear all day without giving a headache or hurting your ears
  • I have them for a 2 months now and I'm finding them soo comfortable that you can literally forget that they're sitting on your head.

What customers say about "Features"
Sennheiser HD 579 Around-Ear Open Back Headphones - Grey
  • Really nice, comfy headphones, been using for a few months with no problems. Can wear all day without giving a headache or hurting your ears, very good sound quality.
  • Sound quality is by far the best I have experienced, everything is crystal clear. I am picking out details I've never heard in music before!
  • They look very sleek in their matte grey finish and are well constructed, as you'd expect from Sennheiser.
  • I was made aware these are not made for bass but I did expect a little bit. I got nothing. The best way to explain it, the music felt flat, underwhelming.
  • The only downside is everyone hears what you hear and there is no noise cancellation.
Sennheiser HD 599 Around-Ear Open Back Headphones - Ivory
  • Very comfortable, with a sound quality that is second to none.
  • There is a depth and space to the sound that the AKG's never had, whilst also having a remarkable amount of detail.
  • Very little difference between the HD 598 and HD 599 except that the HD 599 has slightly more bass
  • The sound stage is larger and the clarity is better . I've noticed subtle things in tracks that I'd never noticed before thanks to the great frequency response.
  • The cups themselves are also replaceable making these a good long term purchase.
