One of the best headphones Ive ever used! Great for gaming too. I can have them on for 10+ hours and they won't bother me
Very good sound, compare with the DT 770, the HD 599 sounds more naturally and clearer
I haven't had time to compare the sound but they seem extremely similar when adjustment are made on an equalizer, otherwise they are a bit different. The 559 may be a bit bass forward. Too close to care for me since I will use the equalizer on my Sansa Clip Jam. Now then, here's what matters a great deal-- The hardware. EXACTLY THE SAME! That simple. Cable the same, frame the same, earpads the same. I read on a review that the material of the earpads changed, but I see no sign of that. Time will make ones bed pillow look different, so maybe it was a use issue that made the reviewer say that. Keep your eyes open for the Amazon merchant called AUDIO EQUIP. I bought five genuine Sennheiser short cables with 3.5mm plugs from them two weeks ago. The ones that are impossible to find. I spent 95 bucks on them total.. They sound better than the Chinese fake upgrades. Good luck!
