I needed a pair of headphones and I only had one simple requirement, I wanted everything.

By everything, I mean, they should have a great range with a natural sounding bass, I don't want bass heavy, they should be well priced, and comfortable. I didn't really expect to find anything. Imagine my surprise when the guy in the shop handed me these saying they where £50. At that price point I had been through everything in the local electronics giant and there had been at least one failing in each of them, too much bass, too much treble, no mids, muddy bass. Not expecting I tried these.

Wow, they are wonderful, bright highs, natural lows. The sound quality is wonderful for this price point, I have tried headphones at three times the price which were not even close. Hence the 4 stars.

Why oly 4? There are a couple of negatives, nothing major but they are there. The cable is captive and cannot be replaced easily so when it goes, that is it unlike the Sennheisers I own which just unplugs. They are not the most comfortable either, after long periods they will get uncomfortable, they are not bad but there are more comfortable headphones out there.

Overall though these are great headphones for the price and you will struggle to find better.

This is the first pair of On or Over ear headphones that I have ever bought and I spent a ridiculous amount of time deliberating over a pair of headphones to buy and initially started with a budget of around £20-£30. I knew a fair amount about the sound quality of in-ear phones and as such felt that this would be a fair initial budget.
However, after looking into products for a while and trying a few pairs in store I felt that I should up my budget and started looking into Audio-Technica's which were highly recommended by a friend of mine along with Sony's Sennheisers and Skullcandy.
It took me weeks to decide on a pair as I'm a student currently without an income and felt that making the right choice was quite important. I would consider myself a bit of an audiophile but not necessarily with the experience of those buying top of the range £150+ headphones but I am heavily involved in different kinds of music and have been for years so have a fairly well tuned ear.
These WS55's have ended up being exactly what I was looking for in portability, comfort and sound quality so I'll just run through some of the features/feels around the headphones to (hopefully) give you an idea of how these phones feel to use.
COMFORT:
The WS55's are a pair of Over ear (around ear - the pads are pressed against the side of your head) headphones but are still compact enough to not look stupid in public. They have a soft padded leather(/faux leather i'm not sure) ear pads that wrap around your ears comfortably but snugly along with a leather padded adjustable headband.

Its not often that I use headphones but when I do I want good sound quality. These headphones do not fail at this. The sound is very clear and the bass response is great. I listen to a wide variety of music and these headphones have managed to reproduce some very clear vocals and some thumping bass for hip hop.

Also worth noting is the sound isolation. When i have them on it cuts out almost all background noise. Also it stops the sound leak very very well. I sit in an office with music thumping and nobody around me is none the wiser.

Highly recommended

I use to have Porta Pro before these and the sound is a next step in quality,but not too far from Porta Pro,however the quality of materials is way better than the Koss,they still didn't fail (Koss Porta Pro unfortunately has a low life expectancy).They are not 100% noise cancelling,but it's enough with a decent high volume without disturbing people around you.At first,they had a kind of uncomfortable feeling on the head,but don't know if became accustomed or they shaped up with use,now i don't have that feeling anymore. For listen movies they are also wonderful because you can ear all the small sound details of everything happening in a movie (i can almost ear what other people are saying when the main actors are taking for example in a coffee shop).same happens in music,the awareness of each instrument sound is very good.Without being the perfect headphones,i recommend it because with a relative low price you purchase a very close experience from what is the top of the headphones.It has a better sound than Koss Porta Pro with better quality,and,hey,for the price,that's not easy...

The sound quality of these headphones is (nearly) superb, with deep, thick bass, clear mids and good (but not outstanding) treble.

If sound quality was all that mattered I'd be keeping these and rating them at five stars for the price, however there are two negatives which together pushed them over into a return to Amazon and a refund.

The first and more minor niggle is that the right ear-cup is slightly louder that the left. At first I wasn't sure if I was imagining it as listening to stereo music the effect is quite subtle, however as soon as I started listening to some podcast radio and audiobooks which were in mono it became obvious that it wasn't my imagination. To give you some idea of the scale of the balance difference, imagine the sound stage is graded from 1 to 100, with extreme left as 1 and extreme right as 100. Mono should be in the exact middle (50) however with these cans all mono sources are placed around 60 or 65. Not a deal braker, but off-putting nonetheless.

The deal braker was comfort. They are vice-like in their grip on the head and in less time than it takes to listen to one album, my ears were in such pain I had to take them off. A real shame.
