Sennheiser introduces three new open, dynamic high-end headphones, the HD598, HD558 and HD518, for the audiophile segment. All three of them feature Sennheiser’s specially developed E.A.R. (Eargonomic Acoustic Refinement) technology and are equipped with powerful neodymium magnets and proven Duofol diaphragms that guarantee natural lifelike reproduction of even the finest musical details, and low-vibration plastic materials that prevent distortions to the sound image.
The Sennheiser HD598 has a unique design with a cream-colored surfaces, dark wood grain effect and glossy metallic trim. Its special diaphragm geometry minimizes intermodulation distortion during sound reproduction, while a highly constant, compressed cellulose fleece reduces total harmonic distortion to below 0.1 percent. It has a frequency response is 12 to 38,500Hz.
The HD558 features 15-28,000Hz frequency response. It is finished in elegant black and has soft velour ear pads for maximum wearing comfort. The HD518 is the entry-level model with a good good price-performance ratio. It offers 14 to 26,000Hz frequency response. The ear cups have an attractive anthracite finish.
The HD558 and HD598 also feature a sound reflector that optimizes the spatial sound effect. All of them come with a gold-plated 6.3 mm audio jack plug.
