The deal of the day today
, Black Friday, on Amazon.ca is on these Sennheiser HD 598 Headphones with Burl Wood Accents. Originally priced at $379.95, there’s a 70% reduction making them only $113.99 with free shipping!
These look like a supremely high-quality set of headphones, perfect for the audiophile.
One of the blurbs from the description states:
HD 598 audiophile headphones inspired by European sport sedans
You can clearly see this from the image above, the styling is incredibly like those high-quality European cars, perhaps one you’d see in a James Bond movie. It also states:
Velour ear pads for long listening sessions
This is a great point… I’ve had comfort issues with some headphones in the past. When wearing them for an extended length of time, I’d find I’d be getting sore heads and sore ears, from older over the head models.
Over on Digitalspy.ca, they mentioned that these Sennheisers were one of their best headphones choices in 2013. A quick quote:
Fans of other genres will find them boring, but for classical music, they're perfect.
Strange that they think these are great for classical music! I’d love to hear a bit of Liszt through them. :)
As for price comparing these elsewhere online in Canada, the Amazon.ca price is really excellent today. These Sennheisers are $250 @ Futureshop, $300 @ Memoryexpress, $380 @ NCIX, $380 @ Dell, $290 @ Bosssound.
I know that not everyone in the world would be interested in spending $100+ on a set of headphones, but for audiophiles, Sennheiser is one of the best quality brands in the world and worth the extra money.
