Sennheiser HD 555

The full-sized HD 555 headphones from Sennheiser has an open air design. The HD 555 weighs in at 9.2 ounces and has a 10-foot cable ending in a 1/4 inch plug (a 1/8 inch adapter is included in the box). Designed to be used for extended periods of time, the HD 555 has large ear cups fitted with soft velour ear pads for added comfort. The headphones come with a two-year warranty and has been designed to last a long time with its easily replaceable internal parts.

While open-back headphones allow noises in and out of the ear cups, it minimizes the distortion of certain frequencies typical of most closed-back designs. The HD 555 also features innovative Sennheiser technologies such as Duofol diaphragms and the “Eargonomic Acoustic Refinement” (EAR) design.

The HD 555’s advanced Duofol diaphragms have been optimized by Sennheiser to eliminate intermodulation.

The unique EAR technology is designed to shoot the audio signal straight into the wearer’s ears. The HD 555’s audio drivers have been placed at an angle; pointing towards the ears. The headphones also feature an internal wedge-shaped surround sound reflector designed to improve the spatial sound field.

The Sennheiser HD 555 also features high quality neodymium magnets as well as lightweight aluminum voice coils. The neodymium magnets ensure accuracy in generating both low and high frequencies. The aluminum voice coils, meanwhile, improve efficiency as well as provide outstanding dynamics.
