Experience: 8 Months


comfy, lightweight
material is prone to cracking
For general purpose headphones, these are great. There is no discomfort using these for 3+hours at a time. The long cord is a plus as well - you can move around freely without removing the headphones.

Experience: 1 Months


- Good price/sound quality ratio
- Comfortable
- Sound is a bit too bright for me
I had another quality headphones before this one. While it sounds better, it costs also 3 times more than I paid for the HD 555. The Sennheiser are my headphones for work. Although they leak sound because of their open air design, I have my own office so it doesn't bother anyone.

Looks, comfort
I bought these during the black Friday sale for 79.99 and I am very happy with them. Great improvement from the laptop speakers I have been using. Bass could be better but can't really complain that much since everything else is great.

Experience: 1 Weeks


Sale Price ($79), Sound Quality, Comfort, Soundstage, Very balanced sound
Adapter plug length, Shipping/Processing time, Headphone clamping force too tight out of box, makes me want to upgrade all music to FLAC quality
First let me tell you that I'm upgrading from a Turtle Beach X11 headset(couldn't handle the constant hiss anymore).

Out of the box these headphones are too tight on my melon. So what I did was pry a Xbox game case between the headband. I left it overnight and the result was much more comfortable in the morning. Obviously they would loosen over time by themselves but this speed up the process.

As people have mentioned the Adapter does make the plug length way too long, but I'm buying a cheap extender cable to fix that. Eventually I'll probably rewire the connector, as I have no need for the 6.3 mm plug.

There that's it for negatives and they're easily fixable, now with the positives. The sound quality is amazing. I was listening to a Chili Peppers album last night and it was just amazing. You hear sounds that you didn't even no existed before. Bass is there, but not overpowering and thats what I prefer. I'm told bass improves after burn-in or using an Amp. As with anything music/sound related, everyone has different tastes because I believe no two people hear things the same.

Playing Halo Reach with these was awesome and Reach isn't even known for great positional sound. Because it isn't a headset (ie. no mic), I will have have to do figure out a way to get a mic working. There are many options shown on the net.

I am very happy with these headphones. They have given me a whole new appreciation for music. I feel like I stole them for $79.

Experience: 1 Months


Good Sound.
Annoying large plug.
Happy with my purchase, but hard to use with an mp3 player, as the cord is way to long, and you need to use the 1/4" to 3.5mm adapter to plug it in to anything. Would recommend.

sound quality
long term comfort
i bought these to replace a set of Steelseries 5H V2 that broke after my kids jumped on them

but that's another story

as for sound quality i did notice a nice upgrade

but as for 3 long term use ( think 3hrs + ) i was not that happy with them

oh and check out the PP price for these!!!

Experience: 14 Days


Sounds decent and is very comfortable to wear. It's possible to wear it for 2-5 hours straight without noticing it's on.
Bass was ok, but didn't really "Wow" me. Apparently the bass will improve when the headphones "break in" after a few hundred hours of usage.
Although the sound quality was good, I found that the difference in quality between my koss ksc75 and the sennheiser hd555 is minimal.

Experience: 1 Weeks


Sound great
Using the adapter for the 3.5mm audio jack lengthens the setup quite a bit
With the adapter on the jack, it becomes as long as a iPhone. Sound quality isn't quite as pronounced as I thought it would be even with the removal of the foam (595 mod). On sale at $79.99 would buy another set, anything else is over priced.

Experience: 8 Days


Good Looking, Sound Qulity
Bought this headset for $79 + HST during the black friday sale. Very well made headset overall. Would like it even more if the bass is more stronger.

Amazing sound quality for price and good bass.
They are pretty light
They come with a huge plug (1/4" stereo) and adapter for 1/8" that is REQUIRED for use on any normal device resulting about 4 inches of length of the plug wich will put alot of force on the socket;The cord is 9 feet long;No in-line volume control.
I'm extremely satisfied with the fit, performance and build quality for the price of these headphones. Extremely comfortable with excellent range of reproduced sound. What more could you want?
