Extremely lightweight, comfortable, fit securely, high quality audio, cable resists tangling. Provides effective surround sound using MOBO sound card. Still relatively quiet even with open back design. Good value for pc gaming assuming that you already have a mike. Does not require amp to be loud.
Cons Audio quality was not particularly amazing when not using sound card port on pc. If planning on using these with a pc with no sound card, consider buying a headset with an inline sound card.


Bought these headphones with the intention of using them for surround sound gaming (using emulated 7.1 from Dolby DTS II) and also for movies.

Quite happy with the quality of the emulated surround sound compared to old 5.1 rosewill headphones. Obviously the build quality of the sennheiser's is also a huge gain.

Comfortable to wear for extended periods
Sound quality is superb
Solidly built
Open design creates amazing sound-stage
Cons Cable should terminate in mini plug
Detachable cable shouldn't lock, it should just pull out
Canadian pricing is outrageous - double the US
Open design lets sound out and in


These cans are replacing a 15 year old pair of HD570 (which only recently stopped working after aprox. 25,000 hours of use) I run them through an Arcam USB rPAC DAC/amp. I gave them 200+ hours of burn-in with pink noise (this is a must as they sound sub-par out of the box) Once burned-in the sound quality reminds me of the 570s. Very neutral for the most part. Some complain of lack of bass, but I find the bass balanced, even on bass-heavy genres. If you are a bass-head, closed-back cans are for you, look elsewhere. Some say you don't need an amp for these, that may be so, but I wouldn't plug these into on-board sound or a portable device. I can't begin to say how comfortable these cans are. Even more so than the 570s.
I'm dinging 1 full star for the cable. It should terminate in a mini-plug and use an adapter if needed. Also, the detachable cable locks (the 570s did not) Too much tension and the cable or the cans get damaged, if it didn't lock, the cable comes free (countless times in the past with the 570s)
Canadian pricing is ridiculous. I've seen these for $110 US.

Great sound quality and very comfortable to wear.
Cons The mini jack converter to fit in your smart phone does not insert  fully depending on the phone case you have on your phone. Must modify the case or remove it so I can listen to the tunes on my phone.


These headphones are fantastic. Excellent sound quality, very clear vocals, deep enough base and they crank pretty loud too. I bought them from NCIX and they were delivered exactly when they said they would be. I was fortunate to get them on sale. I've told a few friends and they've tried them on so now they're waiting for these headphones to go on sale so they can buy a pair too.

-high range
-responds well to EQ changes
-3.5mm extension is replaceable
-flexible long cable, feels like silicone and is quite soft
Cons -Connector is huge for 3.5mm jack (already managed to bend it)


This headphones are far more comfortable than my Audio Technica M50's that they replaced, I actually like how light they are, and I don't really mind the plastic. I like that the earcups can be raised or lowered to sit anywhere on your head, whereas my other pair of headphones never fit right. I did bend the connector on accident because it stuck so far out the front audio jack of my computer. Luckily it was just the adapter, which can be easily and cheaply replaced.

Audio quality is good, base burn in improves the lower end much more than hearing it out of the box. I use an EQ to crank out more base, which the headphones seem to respond to quite well. These headphones really shine for mids and high vocals. They are very satisfying to wear for hours, as I listen to them for 8 hours straight at my computer, often even longer as I'm a gamer and coder at home, and a Power Engineer at work... so these see lots of use. So far so Good!

Very Confortable
Good sound stage
Bass is OK
Price (got a nice deal)
Cons Open air (no isolation)
Too much plastic
Will not play very loud without distorsion
Very long cord (could include a shorter one)


So far I really like them for the price I paid them ($160)
I was hesitating between the HD 558 and the HD 598 but I didn't like the HD 598 color and the extra money didn't seem to give a big difference. I will also check for the HD 558 Mod too see if it worth it.

The bass is ok but not as powerfull as the Shure E535 but the bass is clean and tight. The mid's are pretty good with a wide soundstage. If you play these headphone very loud then you start to loose soundstage and get some distorsion. But at normal listening their fine.

Wish they would have less plastic.

Like all speaker they need break-in period of around 200 hours. At the moment there playing 24/7 FLAC files from my Creative ZX soundcard and I was surprise that I could wear them several hours without fatigue and the more I listen to them the better they get.

Get them in special around $150 but at normal price they are a bit on the pricey side.

Great sound, great clarity, comfy, got it at a good price
Cons No short cable included, could be more "open"


Paired with a Fiio Alpen E17, this thing sounds way better than my old (and good) Samson SR850 (which are still a fantastic value) and feels so good.

The sound is crisp and nice, and while the bass could use some boost, it is clear and will never drown anything.

At the price I got them (170$ CAD), I think they are a really good choice!

light, warm sound, good for gaming
Cons not the best for music


got this on sale, and must say it's a nice open can headphone for movie and gaming because it has a wide sound stage. Need a sound card with headphone amp to max its potential

Experience: 7 Days

Verified OwnerVerified Owner


great soundstage, mids, highs, treble
Cons needs a dedicated soundcard for gaming


got these price matched, generally happy with them. I am no audiophile but they do lack bass if you are gaming especially look into the adh 700x, unless you want to pay the extra buck and get a sound card for your system than these are great.

-designed for big ears
-no sweaty lobes!
-around the ear
-plush headband and muffs
Cons -not collapsible
-long cable
-open ear means lots of sound leakage
-huge 1/4 to 1/8 plug


Overall these cans are pretty awesome for the money. Not quite audiophile quality but very good for the average person listening to 256 or 320 MP3's. Tried them out with some FLAC tunes and can hear the difference between listening to MP3's. Recommended!

Experience: 3 Days


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


I got theese headphone and love them its like everything come alive and you fell like your there aswell I would reccomend using a headphone amp becasue without the base is kinda lacking to just being there but with one man they come alive and sing so because of this i wouldnt use on a phone unless you have a portable headphone amp.Additionally, theese are realy comforatlbe.
