This review is from: Sennheiser - Surround Sound Headphones (HD 555)

Pros:

None

Cons:

None

Other Thoughts:

If you have a relatively high quality sound system, these headphones will deliver clean, accurate sound. They sound great with lower-quality amplifiers also, but if your amp puts out any kind of hiss, these sensitive headphones will let you know.
These headphones output what you put in them with minimal distortion and terrific soundstage. Bass, midrange, and treble all sound amazing.
Important: When you first buy these, they will not sound very good until you let them "burn in" by playing semi-loud bass-heavy music through them for at least 100 hours. If you don't do this, they will sound like cheaper headphones unworthy of their price tag until they eventually burn in. This process "relaxes" the new magnets in the headphones.
If you would like to read reviews by people who call themselves audiophiles, I reccomend searching the web for forums that discuss these headphones.
Obviously, headphones of this quality may not be worth their cost to you. With headphones, as with most products, the cost goes up exponentially with increased quality, and isn't really paralled by exponential performance gains. Let rationaliy be your guide.
