For Rs. 12,990, the HD 598 just doesn't push our buttons. It is expensive for what it offers, but sadly, there are very few competitors in this price category. It's certainly good enough for a non-audiophile, but if it were selling at a good...

For the money, the sound quality is amazing and visually you may want to show them off in the street but the cable and connection make them a little too impractical. If perfect sound pitch in the home is what you’re after then it’s hard to...

Nej, HD 598 finns varken i grått eller svart. Inte vitt heller, för den sakens skull. Bara beige. Och med dekor av plast som ser ut som trä. De bruna velourkuddarna kompletterar intrycket av att hörlurarna hör hemma i en svunnen tid, och kan...

International Review By Bild & Ljud Hemma on 83
