Awesome clarity and comfort

  • Excerpt: Ultrasound clarity is amazing and this lower price model is no exception. They are exceptionally clear and rich over the entire frequency range. Possibly the most life like accoustic and voice reproduction available is Ultrasone. Very accurate. If a range is boosted too much on a recording that range will seem excessive but I believe that is due to the clarity of these phones. A tweak with the receiver/equalizer will addresss that.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use

Ultrasone Rocks!

  • Excerpt: I recently purchased Ultrasone Pro550 headphones and they are fantastic! The clarity and depth of sound are above anything else i've listened to in a reasonably priced headphone. Given the 50mm driver the low end is amazing as well. Fat and round with no mud, but still flat response as opposed to DJ headphones with boosted Eq's, from my experience. Listening at different levels still gives you the same perception of sound, clarity and low end roundness.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight

Better than Beats by Dre.

  • Excerpt: Amazing sound quality for the price. Sturdy. Better quality all around than Beats or others in the same category. I have the Pro 750's. The 550's were a present for my girlfriend who wanted Beats. Guess who doesn't want beats anymore. : -) Great for personal use: iPod, kindle, etc Also great for studio mixing an djing. Recommend for anyone.

Terrific Sound

  • Excerpt: These headphones sound terrific. I'll be taking these on every plane ride I take. Keep in mind, they are much larger than the Beats. They block out considerable outside noise, so I won't be using them at home (I wouldn't be able to hear my son who is 1 yr old). They are also VERY comfortable to wear. I've worn them for 3-4 hours and had no discomfort.

Ultrasone Pro 550

  • Excerpt: The Ultrasone Pro 550s is a great high-mid range headphone that delivers an extremely high quality sound. The sound is really clear and delivers a perfect balance of bass and treble to allow the user to listen for extended periods of time without strain. The headset is a little bulky, as these are over the ear headphones, covering up the entire ear. While I use the pro 550s for djing, I wouldn't exactly recommend it for that.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Versatile
  • Cons: 35mm cable is too short

Pretty Awesome

  • Excerpt: I am an Audio Engineering student who needed a headphone upgrade so I decided to go with these. These headphones are very comfortable and give what seems to be a pretty honest sound on lows, mids and highs. They have a great soundstage somehow, and sometimes the music sounds like it is in the room with you because of this. THe only thing I dislike about them is that they give me ear fatigue after about an hour of wearing them, probably because everything is so audible.

Great Headphones

  • Excerpt: Bought these along with a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD. They are really awesome, much nicer than my Logitech G35 Gaming Headset. They are light, very comfortable, and the perfect fit. Great soundstage as well. Only complaint is that there was no 1/4" to 3.5mm adaptor included. Also it would have been nice if they offered them for a little less without the carrying case (which is not needed by some people).

  • Excerpt: These cans have really nice bass response, really comfortable, clear midrange, and highs. The case and cords are awesome, I wish the long cord's 1/4 inch unscrewed to 1/8 mini but it does include a shorty 1/8 wire
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Quality
