HD555 an affordable upgrade

  • Excerpt: The best cars are made in Germany, so are headphones. Sennheiser might not be the best headphone manufacturer in Germany, but it has the widest product line and various choices of prices. HD555 is an entry level HiFi headphone. No doubt it's far inferior than the Big Three in Sennheiser family, namely HD580, HD600 and HD650.

My husband loves his Sennheiser headphones

  • Excerpt: My husband absolutely loves these headphones. After working in a factory for 40 plus years he has a problem hearing certain pitches making it difficult for him to hear the television at a reasonable level. For him to hear the volume would have to set so high it actually hurt my ears! He says these are lightweight, fit very well, and are comfortable to wear even though they look somewhat bulky.

Great Sound and feel

  • Excerpt: These headphones are worth every penny you can possibly pay for it. The sound on these sennheiser headphones easily surpass many other more expensive headphones. Everything is just crisp and clear. I mainly use these headphones for gaming, and you sure can tell where an enemy is by listening to the footsteps. These headphones have great directional sound. For music you can hear breats that you may have not heard before! That's how great these headphones are!

Fantastic pair of headphones

  • Excerpt: These were my first "high end" pair of headphones, and I have been incredibly happy with them in the three years I've owned them. Thus far, they are still working perfectly even three years after purchase and have no significant wear or tear at all. These are over the ear headphones, with big, softly padded ear cups that fit comfortably on the head.

The best headphones I've owned by far

  • Excerpt: I purchased Sennheiser's HD 555's as a replacement for my HD 280's which had broken after years of heavy use. Despite being roughly the same price on sale (in the neighborhood of $80), these are very different headphones. The HD 555's are an open design, meaning sound leaks in and out freely. Unless the volume is fairly high, I can converse with music playing.

Great pair of entry level audiophile headphones

  • Excerpt: I purchased this set of headphones in February 2007 as a birthday gift to myself. I am not an audiophile, but I appreciate high quality sound. My last pair of headphones was the Sennheiser HD-202 and they were decent, but I was looking for the next level up. These headphones are not extremely expensive, as audiophile quality headphones can be. I compared these to the Grado SR-60s and decided to purchase these due to a friend's recommendation and a more attractive style.

Best headphones I have used despite the design being open air

  • Excerpt: I have owned the HD555 for about 2 months and it has been a fantastic experience. The previous headphones I used were the Steel Series 4H and I thought those were great. Just to let you know, I am a gamer and I enjoy sound as much as a movie nut. Compared to the 4H headphones, these sound alot better. The highs are crisp and I love the bass just as much. Although these aren't surround, I can still hear teammates and enemies approaching the area I'm in.

The Best Headphones EVER!

KTizzle, Viewpoints
9 September 2012
  • Excerpt: This phone is the cheaper version of the Sennheiser 595s which are some of the best phones you can buy(at least under the 500 mark). The are remarkably similar to the 595s both quality wise and sonic signature. The 595s have slightly cleaner treble and bass but for a good bit more money. THe 555s have slightly warm and foward sound with a natural soundstage, with excellent detail... though not quite as good as the high end level phones.

Fantastic sound, great value

JP, Beach Audio

  • Summary: These are open-back headphones and as such are poor for loud environments. However, for critical listening in quiet environments, these are fantastic headphones. I got them to listen to my Yamaha CLP-370 piano and they are pure bliss. The sound is open, balanced, and highly detailed. I have Denon AH-C700 earphones that I use with my iPod because of their portability, but the Denon's sound totally cramped next to these. Not a fair comparison, I know.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Incredibly comfortable, Lightweight
  • Cons: No cons
