If you do a blind test with HD598, you typically cannot tell any difference once you go higher in the realm of headphones. You can tell the difference if you're experienced, but most won't be able to.

It depends on the models being compared, but putting the drivers in closed cups creates additional problems for headphone builders to deal with, such as cup reverb and closed in sound stage, so it's generally easier to make a good open back headphone.

Good find OP. So want these if I didn’t buy a pair of DT 770 pro just two months ago. Any one want to take them off my hands for 25% off retail? No corona here. :)

This makes no sense. Headphones all have their own sound signature. It would be easy to tell the difference between headphones even in the same brand or line. There are huge diminishing returns going above $300, but more expensive headphones still tend to sound better. Going from DT880 -> DT1990 -> T1, each headphone up was only marginally better overall, but the presentation as a whole becomes much more complete. Is it worth it? That depends on the person. I can't go back to my DT880 after owning my T1.

That would make more sense then. Yes your sound card can act as an amp.
