Summary: More annoying is the 5 inch plug (incl. adapter) when I plug into my laptop or PC jack. And the adapter is NOT iphone friendly, which is a bummer, but I'm not going to walk around with these all that much since they're open so it doesn't matter, just annoying. The long plug is way more annoying when using a laptop on my lap in a recliner. I have to be careful so that I don't bend it.
Pros: Sound quality for the price is outstanding. I paid just about the same price for a pair of Skull Candy cans and they can't compare to these. They are very, very comfortable and I can wear them all day with no fatigue. Delicious bass and mids.
Cons: The chord is very, very long. I have to keep it wrapped with a tie, but it's just an annoyance.
Pros: Amazing sound quality. This is my first set of good headphones that I've ever owned. It gave me a whole new perspective on the music that I listen to.
Cons: It seems that they are leaking A LOT of sound to the outside. From another person's point of view, it seems like I'm listening to the music VERY loudly, but the music I'm hearing is not much louder than what other people close to me are hearing.
Summary: Bought these about eight months ago to replace my wireless sennheiser phones that didn't work.
These sounded good, but not that good. Not for the price. Strong bass, clear sound, comfortable fit, and excellent sudo-surround. I just think Sennheiser could do better for the price. The bass isn't as clear as it could be, or quite as strong, and they won't get as loud as I would like. Although, they probably get loud enough for most reasonable people.
Summary: For A$199 these headphones were money well spent. Listening to instrumental tracks has never sounded better, and also exposes poor audio recording quality, however good recording quality sounds stunning.
Pros: Balanced audio spectrum, high build quality, superb instrumental sounds.
Excerpt: I was going to buy an HD555 but too bad at that time the store ran out of stock, so i bought this one instead. The sound quality is satisfying, especially for watching DVD's and gaming. For the music quality depends.. Maybe if you like pop, rock, classical, etc. music it sounds great because of the good Mids and Highs. but for someone like me who loves music that loves a lot of basses (House, electro) the bass isnt going to satisfy you that much..
Pros: Crisp, clear sound. Excellent with mid and High, really comfortable, Not too expensive
