Upgrade to Sennheiser HD598?

I bought a pair of HD518 two years ago for like $110 or $120 but I'm looking at maybe upgrading with the price of the HD598 on Amazon right now. Does anyone know if the sound quality is a gigantic increase or not? They're for sale for a pretty low $130 right now and I'm very tempted to buy them and give my 518 to a co-worker/family member, but I really don't wanna spend that kind of money if it's not as drastic as I got my hopes up to being.

I know they have lower bass unfortunately but any idea of how much lower or noticeable the Treble/Bass is between the two sets? Thanks

Not much difference with trebles. The lower bass doesn't muddy out the other sounds with the HD 598 which improves the overall clarity.

You may get more benefit with an upgraded source.
