BB has Sennheiser HD558 for $79.99 today only

My favorite cans for critical listening. Same drivers as 598 model. Can be modded to make them the same as 598 by removing a sticker inside. YouTube. No brainier price. Merry Christmas. Dbfmtj64ip5rg.png

  • These are good. I bought some one time for work after you posted.
    Thanks again.

    I still like my Grado SR225's (558$ X 3) for at home and I hear the 335's are better
    still as one would hope. You try any Grados?

    No ,I have not. They mostly look like on ear models and not over the ear like I prefer? Thanks. D

    Great price and nice to know about the mod. I did the same when I had HD555 to mod to HD595. Would have snagged them if they were closed looking to replace my momentum for work.

    Anyone compare these with the momentums? I know open vs closed, but are sound signatures similar?

    sound sig is very similar. I have the 598SE and had Momentum 2.0 but sold after getting some Fidelios. Still have the 598s. The spaciousness is great, very atmospheric. I sometimes listen to them over my Audeze LCD-2 fazors for that effect.

    Thanks, OP, for posting this. I'm going to get a pair for my dad.

    My comments are assuming the OP's comments regarding the 558 being identical to the 598 after modding...

    Now I'm thinking about grabbing them for this price and compare them to the Q701s

    Dabutcher,
    Another thanks for the heads-up.

    Got a second pair for a gift yesterday. The price was one day of $75. I had purchased a Denon Heos 1 HS2 for a gift that had a BB Gift Card of $50 so this pair was $25. The inventory is almost non/existent within 250 miles of Atlanta but one trickled off a truck while I was at Best Buy.

    Bought a pair and tried them today. So far not crazy about them. They are not as comfortable as other headphones I have, and they let in quite a bit of ambient noise (for over ear headphones). They also have less bass response than my daily pair. For $80 they aren't bad by any means, but given that I have other headphones to use I won't be keeping these. Fun to try so thanks for the suggestion.

    AFA sound;
    the mod

    and
    They took a long time to break in for me anyway...
