My listening experience with the Sennheiser HD558

Ron from Middleburg, Florida, Sonic Electronix
19 December 2014
  • Conclusion: I had approximately one month using the HD558 and I am so impressed with the quality of the sound and comfort it provides. A full broad frequency spectrum so balance that I use it every day. I hate to take it off, but I have to go to work.. I have only one suggestion for any potential buyer. The cable was made long for studio users (I guess). For my use, I prefer a shorter cable so that I can roam around everywhere.

GREAT balanced sound, amazing soundstage for gaming.

Rocky from Quezon City, Katipunan., Philippines, Sonic Electronix
9 October 2014
  • Conclusion: Very nice and balanced sound signature, still has that satisfying bass. Soundstage is really amazing for gaming (CS:GO, Battlefield 3/4) and movies. Also very comfortable with its soft velour cushions on the ear cups and the headband. It does have a bit of clamp, so people with bigger/med sized adult heads might need to stretch it out over time, maybe put a briefcase or something in between the cups, but for my head it's fine.

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

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

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

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!
