As a headphone, they are good and have quite a balanced sound other than the fact that they do lack the deep bass. Asking how they compare to others is a bit of a fruitless exercise, all that matters is whether you like them.
Exactly. I'm certain some people won't like the type of bass my beyerdynamics produce either.

I actually like Beyers due to their bass, and this is coming from a Senn user. Very fun cans to have, especially the DT770 80ohm which I demoed in a store.

Actualy, the newer version is the 558s. Improved sound deflection, so they say. They are not bad, and I would place them a little over entry level. But there are some serious pros and cons to these cans. Some love em, some cant stand them. My advice would be to find a music center and try some different headphone out to see what you will like. Then ask some questions on what you heard. Personally, I use ATH-AD700s for gaming and Jazz, and I use DT770 Pro80 for other music. You will get a lot of different responses for your question, and you will probably only feel more confused. Read my sig

soundstage isn't huge but it doesn't bother me at all with the clarity and really engaging sound

I just had an idea that might work. It's a headphone design that makes it so headphones can be opened and closed. Just use the pen mechanism and have a circular cover with rubber or some sound trapping material surrounding it so when you press it in, it will become closed. Doesn't sound far fetched at all does it?

I think the cans are tuned for open or closed backs, to where if you take the back off of a closed back, it wont sound like it was supposed to, would be interesting to try though.

Enclosures are very important in determining how a headphone sounds like thus if you do the above, it will change the way it sounds. For open headphones, it will be detrimental to sound quality.

New Bose stuff is gross. I'm talking like 1990 Bose. Like AKG. Simple, but with some shape.

The average person is a complete retard with only 100 IQ. they can not tell the difference in quality between bose, and Anthony Gallo's nucleus loudspeaker with a great 10 inch sub and a Hifi receiver, which would cost the same exact price, yet sound way better. most people if given the chose would pick the Bose over Orb audio, or even better Gallo's. Bose uses the cheapest materials they can get their hands on. It's that simple.
Um, I thought I was pretty clear that I think Bose is a joke. I was merely remarking on aesthetics. You have no convincing to here, I've read much more technical evaluations than your own.


Anyway I was saying that I think basic designs like this aren't so bad considering that I'm willing to wear AD700's which are, let's face it, borderline pink with two gigantic halos over my head.



All in all I think the Sennhieser HD5XX line looks pretty good.



I'd also like to note that against my own personal opinion, this is a Bose friendly club. I have read of people who've tried your traditional hi-fi route like most of us here and much prefered the bose. It's not all BS. Mostly though.
