That depends: are you going to use him at home or do you need it in a portable set-up? Is isolation an important issue? The HD 595 is a great HP for home use but doesn't isolate at all.

Ive just typed out a post and my PC crashed before i posted it, arrggggggggghhhhhhhhhh!

Anyhow;

I have the 595's, overall the sound is excellent, and they are 'extremely comfortable,' to the point you forget your wearing them. Sound is open, they pick up all the fine nuances, bass is deep and controlled, vocals, and high's are outstanding, and with the comfort I mention, they are a fantastic product..

My only gripe with them is, if they are cranked up a bit too much the bass completely bottoms out, the earcups will vibrate quite badly. Something ive never seen anyone mention on the reviews I looked at before purchasing them. But in all honesty, when that happens, my bass settings are usually a tad *cough* (no need for links to cough remedies thankyou, Andrew
) to high, its not a design fault.

I would highly recommend the 595's to anyone. You might want to take a look at the Grado's also, already mentioned. I do believe after long periods of listening to similar priced Grado's, they can become uncomfortable. Im not 100% sure about that, just something I read somewhere a while back. Any Grado users here might say differently.

Hughes123, will disagree with that statement, but he has recently purchased the Grado GS1000, a completely different league and price range, lucky for some huh! You can read his review of them here http://whathifi.com/Review/Grado-GS1000/UserReviews/

Ah, ok. As I said, I only read it somewhere on a review, which can always be misleading at times.

Thanks for clarifying, ifitsoundsgoodlistentoit. (thats some username you have there
)

I'm sure the Denon's are great but they're twice the price of the other headphone's he's mentioned

Oops, I wasn't aware of that, I thought the Sennheiser HD595 was at the same price range...
