These complement my Sennheiser HD 380 Pro Collapsible High end Headphones - Black closed backs which were bought for travelling (noise isolation).
The HD598SE is splendid! Sound wise, I think they are nicely balanced all the way through the spectrum, and don't seem to exhibit the rumoured so-called "Sennheiser Veil" (which is another way of saying muted highs). I paired it with my O2-DAC-AMP and managed to ABX between 320kbps/256kbps CBR MP3s (I found it really difficult) if that means anything to you. However, these don't need an amp, and worked fine with my laptop and phone directly, both without cranking the volume even anywhere near max.
Basically, if this pair is an upgrade for you, it'll expose alot of detail in your sounds that you play through it, so any poorly encoded stuff will show immediately (and bad mastering too, like over-compression, sub 20kHz roll-offs, clipping, etc.). It's great if you like listening in depth and diving into the music to hear each and every detail to fully appreciate what it's made of.
Comfort wise, these are excellent. The felt cushion around the ears are really comfortable although they are not sweat-resistant so be careful! (I sometimes eat spicy food while watching a show on my com, so sweating can happen while sitting still!) The "air-filled" cushion on the head bit feels as though it's not there at all! The grip on the ears are quite light, so you can't vigorously shake your head and expect them not to move, but it should be strong enough for most casual movements.

Only problem I cant think off is when you look completely up they seem to fall off but i never do that since not much reason to stare at my ceiling, otherwise perfect sound quality that gives low sound frequency so you can hear sounds in the background you could not before which is quite refreshing as some songs can sound completely new all over again.
