Great sound with a couple of niggles,
This review is from: Sennheiser HD555 Open Headphone (Electronics)
It's taken me a long time to finally decide that I do thoroughly love these headphones.
The sound is actually fabulous and & I completely satisfied that I made the correct choice in purchasing these headphones over others. I couldn't decide whether I should go for open or closed due to the relevant pros & cons of each, but eventually chose sound over other factors & landed on these babies.
The sound is clear, crisp, holds a lot of punch, and has enough bass for it to have a beautiful, balanced feel.
I use these for music (acoustic, rock, jazz, classical......) and gaming on my laptop (mostly fps).
The main niggle I have is, when using the mini-jack adaptor, the whole jack connection is very long & thick which actually means it doesn't fit into a couple of my mini-jack sockets (that have rims around the jack which don't allow it to even get close). Another niggle, as such, is if you wanted to have the headphones around your neck temporarily while not using them - you'll feel as though you're in a neck brace.
Other than this, these are fabulous & I would recommend anyone to purchase them.
