  1. Unfortunately looks like there is not much you can do about that, that layout is awful.
  2. The HD650 and the HD6XX are identical headphones, Sennheiser has recently opened a new factory in Romania where the new HD660S is being made, since the 600-series pretty much uses most of the same tooling I'd hazard a guess that Sennheiser has moved all 600-series production there. Also, there is no sound difference between a 3.5mm and a 6.35mm jack, just depends on what is coming out of your source.
  3. It's way harder to make a pair of headphones that are already loose on your head tighter (these aren't those AT 3D wing headphones after all). If you don't feel comfortable wearing them, get something else, especially if you're gaming with them for long periods of time.
  4. USB OTG to basically any portable solution on the planet. Audioquest Dragonfly Black/Red if you want something USB stick sized, if you want something bigger something like an Oppo HA2, Fiio E17K or JDS C5D would work. The Schiit Fulla 2 would require an external USB source for power, so I don't recommend that personally.
  5. Pelican is pretty good, 1010 is probably good enough for just the headphones themselves + a few tips. Personally I'd go for a semi-hard unless you really need the waterproof. Campfire's semi-hards look pretty nice.
  6. A sweater pocket isnt terrible though, something else has to be up if OP is burning through the cables so quickly. Jeans pocket on the other hand.
  7. They should work out of mobo audio, though personally I’d get at least a Fulla 2.
  8. Given how I think everything 1More makes is absolute dogshit, I'm guessing this will be absolute dogshit as well.
  9. The problem with earbuds is that it's extremely hard to make them water resistant, because lets face it earbuds need a large opening so that it can project sound into you ear without having to be in the ear canal, and it needs a fairly large bass port somewhere in the chassis. TL;DR, I think you'd be hard pressed to find half-decent (or frankly any) earbuds that are water resistant.
  10. OP is right, the biggest problem IMO is the lack of a proper standard of how to implement audio in the future. Wireless is never going to be the choice of millions and OEMs have to accommodate them. At the very least, Apple has given us a inexpensive, high-quality audio solution that comes free with all their phones. But not all OEMs have done the same, some don't even come with a dongle and require a separate purchase with dodgy audio hardware. It's such a shame because this was really the time to be like "yes, we can improve audio on phones by doing what computer audiophiles have
  11. I use my phone or my AK70 on the go. Currently the ATH-LS200 are my IEM of choice, but I'm getting customs made right now.
  12. But a double bass clearly plays in the sub bass region, and that seems to be OPs problem, not the midbass warmth.
  13. Sounds like it tbh, I'd say go for something from AKG or Audio Technica's ADx line at this point. Sounds like you might like bright headphones better.
  14. May I ask what are you directly comparing the 598 to? Makes alot of difference if we know what gear you're coming from.
  15. It's the first time I've ever seen someone say a 598 has too much bass. They have quite a lot of bass rolloff past 100hz. What I do understand is the double bass sounding muddy since it has lots of distortion down low. Too loud is just weird to me.
