Not the best choice, after all the posts I'm reading now about the ATH AD700 being better. But it is a lot of improvement over my cheap logitech headphones.

I honestly prefer my HD555's to the AD-700's for Muisc/Movies. They sound better to my ears.
And are a bit more comfortable.
i can help if you want to recable them if you want. i did it to mine and it was fairly easy.

From what I've heard there are a lot of mods you can do with the HD555. What difference does the cable make ?

Those are some amazing shot's, Jonathan. I pretty much started my headphone journey in exactly the same way you did. Atm though, I've simplified things a bit. I've been rocking my jh13 pros from my iphone and I've been enjoying myself immensely. I knew after hearing the demos at Can Jam that I had to own a pair, and I haven't regretted my decision at all.

I haven't tried adding a new cable yet to see if it helps.

But Check out the HD555's Discussion Thread, OP has some useful information to guides and whatnot.

my first headset was the AHS502 - earcups wasn't really pressing against my ears so pretty comfortable. the leathers on the ear muffs didn't even teared out after over used(2years plus). the bad thing was the durability(weak frame work). i still remembered i have to tape the frame joints just to let it stays on with couple of lose screws after 4months the tapes begins to lose its strength, screws are missing, in the midst of lan my headset just dropped onto my shoulders xD.

second was AHS515 - lol i remembered looking at the mirror after wearing them i felt i had an afro haircut . Durability was the biggest let down ever. 1 week after boughting it, the headset was accidentally drop to the floor from a chair height and the left cup came out... soon the right side came out too... had to use 3M double sided tape to hold them. The bass was abit stronger than the 502 but it was so heavy i couldn't play with it for long hours. And Of course, Weak frame has it screws lose and i lose it, i trashed it after dismantling the earphones from the headset.

third was Logitech precision gaming headset -big thumbs up for S$40 headset. this is the best budget headset out here in singapore. Finally, a stronger frame headset, the treble was higher than the bass/mid thought, but i live through it. Detecting enemies sounds was really easy after AHS515 but soon i lost the "feel" of detecting it. the let down was the long hours playing with it, the holding position of the headset is from your ears, not top of your skull so its a bit irritating. the leather on the earmuffs soon went hardened and cracks begins to appear making it unbearable to wear for short period. And the microphone sucks, really couldn't detect your voice in a noisy enviroment. Was trashed after larger cracks begins to appear on the ear muffs

forth was razer piranha - Pricing was at S$130. This time i was aiming for the Barracuda+Razer Headset(BH-1?) but i couldnt find it and i bought piranha. First try was awsome. Big bass; good for music or movie, ear muffs was comfortable(cloth made). Thats all. Down side: USB is to light up the headset(i was damn pissed with this), low treble(detecting enemy was really hard!!), the frame make the earcups pressing against your ears, real hard. cant play for really long periods(need my ears to take a breathe). Sold to a friend at $99 dollars

current, fifth was everglide s-500 - bought it at S$50 3months ago, i came across this headset back in 2007 during a electronic hardware expo. i was so stunned at the durability and the sound it produced; Price was around $120 that time. i couldn't shell up the money so i gave it a pass. Finally found it and after i open it up... the ear muffs... the sponge wasn't there anymore. Powdery was left inside the ear muffs after i cut it open to replace with my unused dishwasher sponge . Wear and tear on the leather soon after that(can't help it, this headset was like in the storeroom for 2years. box was dusty as heck) I'm still loving it currently. Long wires mean u can play games using an PC Xbox controllers 2 meters from ur CPU.

i'm not good in english nor good in reviews. pardon me
