  • Summary: Very brief....   These are the first portable cans i have owned where i have been pleased from the very fiirst track i listened to with them.....sound is great even before burn in, and 10 hours in they keep improving naturally.   Nice tight bass, decent detail, nice soundstage/three dementional, comfotable(despite other opinions), and very attractive looking......oh and great synergy with both FiiO E5/E7, for those looking for value and super sound.
  • Pros: Nice tight bass, Detailed, Soundstage/three dementional, Portable + looks
  • Cons: UK price compared to other countries

These are truly great

  • Summary: I have to agree with 'NDUBISI MOKOGWU' review. Firstly, respect these and treat them with a little kindness and they will reward you with years of good service. Mine have been going strong since Oct 2011 and they are truly 'run-in' and sound utterly amazing. I have tried too many different headphones, from Bose, Sony, Sennheiser, Ultimate Ears, Shure... I have returned most of them and I come back to these every time.

Don't rely on reviews just go to a store

  • Summary: This is my 2nd pair of these earphones after 4 great years of listening joy, I broke my original pair and was gutted so it was a no brainier when I had to replace them. For all those people writing reviews and talking about bass levels, mid, treble etc, please don't listen to them, no ones ears are the same and you have just got to go to a store try a selection of headphones and then order the one you like on Amazon.

Great over-ear phones

  • Summary: I was looking for a decent pair of headphones to play with my ipod. These were getting good reviews online for their price and I can see why. The sound quality is excellent, and I've heard new aspects to albums I've listened to dozens of times, even with the lower quality that MP3 gives. They are very comfortable to wear, light, and the earphones swivel flat so they are easy to store. My only criticism would be that the wires are a little flimsy and not very robust.

good sound, comfortable to wear & great customer service

  • Summary: i bought these as a gift & have tried them myself on occasion. the recipient is extremely picky when it comes to sound leakage, sound quality on headphones, so after much research, bought these for him. He has had no problem with the sound quality & there is very minimal leakage. the style of the headphones are simple & has a good quality feel to them. They are understated & do not have the comic-proportion ear pads like many headphones currently do.

Superb, cooler than Dre's if your over 30 and they keep your ears warm!

  • Summary: Replaced in ear phones with these and will never look back. Excellent sound, they have been worn in sun,rain and snow when walking the dog and still going strong. Good isolation and no rubbing noises from wires etc when walking. Prefer to Dre's as bass is tighter and more precise. Yes Dre's look good if you are a teen or in early 20's, any older and you should be wearing these!

Best Portable On Ear I've Used

FiftySomething, Amazon
21 May 2013
  • Summary: After trying out several pairs of on ear headphones, and having heard several expensive pairs that do not sound very good, these are the sweet spot. They have a punchy, but not bloated bass response, good midrange clarity and presense, and a lively but clean treble. They sound like open headphones whilst having all the advantages of a closed pair.

Amazingly good headphones!

Mindpower, Amazon

  • Summary: I tried these out comparing them to the ES7 which are a bigger / higher spec set of 'phones, and was amazed to see how well the ES55s compared to them. It made the decision difficult; the ES7s are real head-huggers, with huge bass, but the ES55s deal out plenty of bass too - much more than I expected - and overall I actually slightly favoured these.
