Description
The HD 558 headphones from Sennheiser provide high-quality audio in a lightweight and stylish design. With premium metal mesh and high-gloss burl wood accents, the headphones have innovative Ergonomic Acoustic Refinement (E.A.R.) technology that channels audio directly into your ears for realistic sound reproduction with deep bass that simulates sitting in front of a set of hi-fi speakers without the expense or space requirements. Internal sound reflectors generate an extended spatial sound field for an immersive audio experience. The headphones have an extremely fast rest/response time for excellent transient response and treble clarity.

4.5 Star Review  productwiki.com - Jul 11, 2011

Sennheiser HD 558 Headphones feature an open, circumaural design for a detailed spatial sound field, geared to home theater listening, in addition to regular music applications. Proprietary E.A.R. technology processes incoming audio signals precisely and Duofol diaphragms minimize undesired resonance. They are designed for maximum comfort, with velour earpads and cushioned headband. ... PROS: (1) affordable price point for its size and sound quality (2) very comfortable - soft padding on both the ear cups and headband, circum-aural design (3) plastic offers better durability and longevity than Sennheisers higher-end leather / wood builds (4) understated Sennheiser aesthetic (5) top notch build quality ... CONS: (1) not as luxurious as other options from Sennheiser - lacks some of the nicer materials / crafting

5 Star Review   Crutchfield.com   

Crutchfield has collected 2 user reviews for this product with an average rating of 5.0 out of 5 stars. The most recent reviewer said, "Truly a nice headphone. Very comfortable although at first felt a bit snug until I made all the minor adjustments to fit my head. Ear cups are soft and don't make your head sweat. Headband is plush. Overall lightweight is nice. Detachable cord is awesome and the native 1/4 inch gold jack feels snug and secure. Thick cable is a plus. Must be twice the size of my HD525 cable. Compared to my old and faded HD525s, these 558s are on another level comfort and sound-wise. Tighter bass, full warm mids and comfortably crisp highs make these a pleasure. My 525s lasted almost 10 years, and I guess I could have bought the replacement parts, but the investment in these 558s was well worth the cost. The upgraded sound and low impedance lets me play this thing on my iphone without problem, although I would recommend upping the bass level when using such low power devices. I'm glad I stuck with the Sennheiser brand. I was thinking of trying out another line like Bose, but I realized how long my 525s lasted and thought I could get the same value out of these."
