Excerpt: I've had these for about a year now. By far the best headphones I've ever had. I'm hesitant to buy anything else, because they might not match up! These are ridiculously low priced now (especially used).
Excerpt: The headphones fit snugly on my head and the felt pads feel great. These are know for being great for sound positioning in gaming due to the wide sound stage and defined sound. They lack bass in the sense that your head won't shake but they don't sound like a laptop speaker, if you get what I mean.
Excerpt: Oh course these aren't your ultra high end headphones, but they do very well for the price. They outperform the Beats By Dre incase you were thinking about buying those pieces of garbage. Love the headphones for gaming too.
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: Pros : 1) COmfortable 2)Very Good Bass 3)Surround Effect 4) You can listen each and every instrument sound 5)Crisp melodious voice 6) Perfect for music listening and movie watching Cons : 1) only price is high I purchased it yesterday and didnt regret coz these headphones are awesome , ultimately...
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.
