Summary: Clear, well-defined and balanced sound; loud enough; comfortable; affords quite relaxed listening not punchy, or harsh in any way. Worth the few extra dollars? Definitely. I recommend these headphones.

Summary: Fairly good headphones overall, with detailed light bass and nice highs. Detail is actually very good. But, unlike a lot of people, I found the midrange too much colored; it has a nasal character that I ultimately found annoying, so I returned the HD555 to the store.
Summary: These were my first pair of "audiophile" headphones. I mainly bought these to hook up to my computer to watch movies and listen to music. They've served me well for 2 years now and I do treat them rather harshly.
Summary: The Sennheiser HD555 headphones are an excellent value for its modest price tag. It delivers nice, tight (though not particularly loud or impactful) bass, nice liquid mids and detailed though ever-so-slightly grainy highs.
Summary: The sound of those headphones is pleasantly deep. That kind of deepness one couldn't get on the portable earphones. Therefore, those headphones are great for the movies, soundtracks, and games. How about comfort, it was almost perfect.
Summary: The pads are really soft and seem to be durable. Sound quality is really good. specially with mids. Pros: Durable, flexes well. soft pads, doesn't fall of head in any way. Sound quality is 7/10. Cons: My left ears keeps hurting for after 4h of wear..
Summary: These are excellent entry level headphones. Build quality is a bit flimsy, but comfort is very good. Very easy to drive, but bass was quite bloated unamped and needed amp to tighten it up. The extension is excellent, they go deep.
Summary: The HD 555 are great value headphones and are 90% of the HD 595 for a lot less money. They are basically a slightly less refined headphone to the HD 595. The velour pads are very comfortable. These headphones are easy to drive and have a relatively neutral sound signature, leaning towards warm.
