  • 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: Had these cans for 3 months before having my 595 and to be honest, it does sounds outright nice, added a PPA in the line and everything is much more livelier. Useless out of a portable players with the sound spectrum being pulled down to the lower side.

  • Summary: Sennheiser is the best place to start while considering any set of headphones. From just the casual listener to the extreme audiophile, Sennheiser is the place for you. The HD 555 is no exception. They are smooth throughout with good mids and good detail.

  • Summary: These are a pleasure to listen to. A fairly intimate feel that shines on classical, light rock, jazz, and vocal tracks. Great for movies as well, with a great soundstage. It's also one of those headphones that you forget you have on.

  • 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.

  • Summary: I bought these cans as an anniversary gift after only a short audition. Well, I really do hope they will perform better as soon as the burn in, because so far they're performing below my expectations.
