All rounder audiophile headphones

  • Excerpt: I'm using this set of cans in my bedroom.... running it with a Rega Planet CDP and laptop (USB) source going to Musical Fidelity's VDAC2 and VCAN2, XLO cables. Sounds great with a wide range of music. Enough bass and highs to keep me engaged without the fatigue on long listening sessions. I do wish for a tiny bit more sparkle in the midrange and extreme highs but not much else. Soundstage is excellent: width and depth.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Good Build Quality, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Price
  • Cons: Lacks A Tiny Bit Of Spark

an upgrade for sure

  • Summary: I have been a Sennheiser customer for nearly 8 years and this particular pair of headphones are everything they were promised to be. My old pair of phones (HD555's) lasted me for 6 years of travel and rough ware. My old headphones are built relatively similar to the HD 558's. At first I was a little off put with the longer cord, but I learned to embrace the freedom the cord offered.
  • Pros: Great sound quality. Reasonably affordable for high definition headphones. Comfortable
  • Cons: They aren't noise cancelling, but don't advertise to be

Great Multi-Use Headphone

  • Excerpt: I bought the HD 558 to listen to music without disturbing the household but have become more addicted to using them with TV. For example, watching movies when others need quiet for studying, watching music shows with higher volume (and clarity) than others in the room; these are also great for clear articulation and less sound fatigue when watching lecture videos and make shows like "Cosmos" really pop.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Comfortable, Good Sound Stage, Good Value, Great Sound, Long Cord
  • Cons: Audible By Others

  • Pros: -sound quality, -build quality, -comfort, -look nice, -feels like your there
  • Cons: -needed headphone amp then again to be expected at this price range

  • Summary: These headphones are super comfortable with the velour ear pads and headband. Fits my head like a glove. Sound quality is great with punchy bass and treble. Lightweight, removable ear pads in case you want to clean or replace them. After about a year and a half of use they still perform and look brand new. Bought mine on sale for 199.99 which is a steal imo.
  • Pros: Super comfortable. Awesome sound.
  • Cons: Don't wear in public unless you want everyone to hear them lol.

Like Father like Son; HD 558 and HD 598.

  • Excerpt: Are these not what the HD 555 were to the HD 595? I can't tell the difference between the HD 558 and HD 598. They both sound wonderful and have that great open/sound stage. Some say they are "the best in this price range" and PC magazine gave them an "Editors choice" award. Sorry to say they rival my Beyerdynamic DT 880's and AKG 701 's. My loss, but these can easily be the best open phones under $ in my opinion.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Sound Price Comfort
