  • Summary: My chain: Lossless -> Foobar 2k -> HifimeDIY Sabre DAC -> E11 The HD558 are doing it for me right now. I was not blown away, but they really don't do anything wrong. The bass is not boomy but does bleed a tad, not ideal for classical but it's not hugely problematic. The mids are nice.
  • Pros: Mostly neutral tonality, quality timber meets or exceeds expectations for the price, good presence across the spectrum, great all-rounders
  • Cons: Sennheiser veil, bass can bleed a little and doesn't go all the way down, mids not always as forward as I would like ideally

  • Summary: In my endless search for headphones that fit, and fit, are comfy, and satisfy my sound tastes; my dumbo ears have led me to very few outlets to choose from. I chose to try the Sennheiser 558, as it gets rave reviews, and such.
  • Pros: SOUND. looks, earcup size
  • Cons: A bit clampy, bit inside touches ears, cable
