Lacking rhythm and ... passion

Jeremy, Amazon
18 February 2014
  • Summary: Considering their accolades they were a bit of a disappointment. I had had a pair before and sent them back because of their relative blandness (compared to 880s - which I bought instead) I wanted a pair of closed headphones and was persuaded to try them again and give them more time to burn-in.

Honeymoon period over. Impressive and original quality sound but audio transients are too sharp and the bass is too light.

  • Summary: These headphones delivery a degree of detail which I haven't heard before in headphones (or speakers), and I've used many high-end ones over the years. You can hear every nuance in the recording and the separation between frequencies and sounds is incredibly distinct.

Too Soft and Squishy - and that's not JUST the bass !

GH, Amazon
19 August 2012
  • Summary: Ear cups ruin these. Far too soft as your ear is pretty much squashed up against the cup housing. The issue with getting a good seal for decent bass is certainly not exaggerated, so if you loosen off the headband, away goes the bass. Tighten it up, and crush yer lugs ! Sonically - just okay.

  • Summary: I love the design of these and really wanted them to be the headphones I am looking for, the price is good, they are really comfortable and well built, but unfortunately there area couple of problems which make them for me unsuitable.

Maybe I have a freakish head, but I found these uncomfortable. Sound quality is great though.

choddo, Amazon
19 August 2012
  • Summary: Great sound but I found them singularly uncomfortable compared to Sennheiser 515/518s. The pads aren't deep enough for my ears (which I think are pretty normal!) so I felt the inner mesh on my ears which I could probably have got used to. The overhead band isn't padded enough.

Nicht schlecht, aber auch nicht überragend.

waldameise, Amazon
9 October 2014
  • Summary: Ich habe den K550 im Vergleich mit einem Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro getestet. Als Laie kann ich keine tiefschürfenden Audioerfahrungen mit diesen Geräten berichten, nur soviel: beide machen ihre Sache nicht schlecht, im Höhen- und Mitteltonbereich gibt es für mich nichts zu kritisieren.

Na ja,

Amazon Customer, Amazon
31 August 2014
  • Summary: ich habe mir sehr viel mehr versprochen, für einen Kopfhörer in dieser Preisklasse. Er trägt sich sehr gut, die Auflösung im Mittel- und Hochtonbereich ist toll, aber leider kein Bass. Der Kopfhörer ist vielleicht was für Hörer von Elektrostaten oder Kleinlautsprechern, die auch keinen Bass können.

Gut klingender Stinker

Jazzy, Amazon
31 May 2014
  • Summary: Klarer transparenter Klang ohne die übliche Bassüberhöhung. Man kann mit dem Hörer wirklich differenziert und analytisch hören. Der Teergeruch der von der Verpackung herrührt ist aber so aufdringlich dass ich den Hörer anfangs deswegen wieder abnehmen musste.
