  • 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.

  • 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

  • Summary: Paired this with a xonar dg soundcard, and it sounds great. In terms of comfort, they are good out of the box. Note that I wear a size large helmet for sports, and this headset is still comfortable and not tight. I'm using this for all at-home PC activities (games, music, movies, etc) since I prefer IEMs when out and about.
  • Pros: Lightweight, with foam earcups and band on top of the head., Cable can be detached from the headset., Excellent clarity in sound.
  • Cons: Very long cable.

Great headphones!

  • Excerpt: I bought this headphones specially for use on a digital piano (Roland HP 505). The dealer of this digital piano recommended this Sennheiser HD 558 and I guess he gave us the right advice! These are very good headphones, with very good music-quality and a very good fit. Made out of luxury materials and feels very soft and comfortable. A digital piano produces difficult tones on various levels and these headphones reproduces very well!

  • Summary: For the money, I am not sure you can find a better headphone. In its price range it seems unbeatable. It does not match the sound performance of an expensive sealed headphone, but in my opinion you would have to pay much more to improve the sound that this headphone produces.
