Summary: Built for outdoor use like jogging and walking because of the shortness of the cable and the remote volume control. I enjoyed listening to classical music, folk, rock music with it. Sounds were rich and well balanced, highly differentiated but with no overpowering bass.
The head phones do justice to Noah and the Whale's music for their complex string orchestra and rock music mix.
Great jogging companion.
Pros: Audio quality, comfort, short cable for outdoors, sound control on cable, powerful enough for iphone and ipods, no excessive bass
Cons: If you don't like the Princess Leia look also not suitable for cycling because of safety helmets issue
Summary: So, like all of us on this forum, I love music... couldn't live without it. Whilst I own some decent-ish headphones (Bose QC20i, Bose QC15, Sennheiser Momentums) I wanted something with a bit more musicality. The Momentums I never really liked. I also wanted an all round set of phones that I could use in the house or when out and about, which ruled out open back.
Summary: the quality of these headphones cannot be underestimated. for the discount offered at the time of purchase i really don't think i could have got a better set of phones. the issue some may have is the lack of bass, but this is because these phones are designed to give even response across the frequency range. personally i don't like oodles of bass, so these are the right set for me. for others, who listen to bass heavy tunes, they might not be the right set.
Excerpt: **Introduction** I have a massive passion for Music and love listening to all kinds of Music, There's rarely a day that goes by when I don't listen to Music and I listen to music with my headphones in bed before going to sleep. A couple of years ago I bought a pair of AKG K450s which I am still very impressed with and after owning a few pairs of Sennheiser headphones in the past I am now a slightly bigger fan of AKG headphones, This increased when I bought my latest pair...
Summary: I am into my hifi and love how much better music sounds through than a set of computer speakers. With this in mind I decided to look for a set of quality headphones specifically for my iPhone when commuting. I had a few tick boxes to meet all at a maximum price limit of around £300. I wanted over-ear, inline remote to answer calls, some degree of sound proofing, portability and most importantly to sound great.
Summary: Just how the professional reviewers describe. Beautiful sound. I wanted closed headphones and these have a very natural sound, and I can wear them for a long time without them becoming too noticeable on my head.
Summary: As far as i am aware these are the K550 with an inline Mic/remote. I have about a Dozen pairs of in and over ear headphones, from Sure E2 To Alessandro MS1 but no closed over ears so I have been on the lookout for a good pair for about 4 months. I finally bought the 551 about 2 weeks ago, out of the box the 551 are a stunning open headphone, I liked them from the moment I initially tried them, it took me several months of trying other headphones before i came back and...
Summary: ...que sepan que la ley está a favor del vendedor desde el momento que el precio erróneo es por debajo de su precio de coste. Además aunque haya un pedido hecho con un nº pedido adjudicado, el dinero no lo cobran hasta que no sale el pedido, por lo que no hay ni devolución. Quizás deberían explicar el cambio sucesivo de precio a los afectados. 5 estrellas para unos buenos auriculares, aunque los compré en otra tienda...
