4.0 out of 5 stars Great Sounding Headphones, 28 Jan. 2014
This review is from: Audio Technica ATH-WS55 Black Solid Bass Over Ear Headphones (Electronics)
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.
