Summary: Hey It was between AD700 and HD555 for me and honestly I decided purely because of looks as I would be wearing these in my studio and at work. After my purchase I realized the Ohms were said to be at 120 and I got worried that they would not drive well.
Summary: I purchased my HD555s December of 2005 as my first set of near-audiophile headphones. Three years later, what amazes me most about these goes beyond the sound quality, it's the unbelievable build quality.
Summary: These headphones are made out of a good quality fabric that cups around the entire ears, making them very comfortable for hours. Also, their design makes them especially comfortable for people who wear glasses. The cord is very long and the cushion for the cranium is nice.
Summary: These headphones were purchased to replace HD477s that were damaged by a friend. I am glad I chose to upgrade. I like the over-the-ear cup design and the phones are adjustable to fit even my big head quite comfortably.
Summary: Wonderful headphones. Very comfortable. They sound great. The only negative is the lame adapter for the eighth inch plug (it comes with the larger quarter inch plug). The adapter extends the plug and seems like it could break off easily. Other than that, i hightly recommend this set.
Summary: Solid highs, never fatiguing. Solid mids, no apparent dips or peaks (atleast to my ears). Solid bass extension and impact - perhaps not subwoofer-like, but good enough in the world of headphones. For the price, it is hard to beat the HD555.
