Sennheiser! will probably be better,everybody says sennheiser is awesome,and i'll get a 449 for myself :) take the 558

i don't know audio technica but at least, if you take sennheiser you will love them for sure.

And anyway, the 558 are more high end,see the price.

You think Sennheiser are better ?! I have done a test of the Audio-Technica ATH-AD700 2 days ago (a friend have it) and the sound was awesome

For gaming, AD-700

For everything else, HD598.

I have a pair of the AD700's. They are good headphones, more comfortable and better than my Sennheiser PC-330's were. I haven't tried the 558's.

I have a set of HD555's and they are quite possibly the most comfortable headphones I have, even moreso than my PC350's. Those would be my pick.

However the only way to properly tell which will be better for you is the go to an audio store and try them both on. I know around here we have a store called Bay Bloor Radio.

HD 595 owner here. Great sound and like stated above, EXTREMELY comfortable, even after wearing them for several hours. With that said, the AT are very good headphones as well! I would probably take the pair of Sens myself but ultimately it is up to you!

I own the Sennheiser Hd558 headphones and have a pair of audio technica's not the same set you're looking at but still i can say the sennheisers are so much more comfort to them. Seriously for me the senn's i can wear all day no prob but the technica's would bug me after a couple of hours. Sounds seemed pretty much the same, both quality headphones. my vote is sennheiser..
