Anyone comment on the Sennheiser HD599 headphones?

I noticed that the Amazon version of these are £89 today and wondered if people have opinions of them?

I am in need of a pair of headphones for use in the bedroom for when I can't sleep. I find that listening via headphones can help me get to sleep sometimes. I already have a couple of pairs of headphones but the Momentum wired headphones would probably be too uncomfortable and the other pair is permanently connected to my synths.

I was going to buy a cheap pair of headphones but looking at these, I think they are cheap enough for this use with the added benefit of them hopefully being better than cheaper headphones.

I've read user reviews and I thinking that their relaxed presentation would suit my needs? I'm not craving huge amounts of bass or a forward/exciting/punchy sound.

These are open back, so not really suitable if you have someone next to you trying to sleep.

Thanks. I should have mentioned that them being open back isn't an issue 🙂

I would say buy a pair and give them a try. Purchased a pair of HD 599SE a little while ago from Amazon for about the same price and in my opinion are very good and easy to drive.
