PROS:

+ Provides clarity and increased bass.
+ Gives an immersive music and movie experience.
+ Very comfortable earpiece and headband coverings.
+ Comes with 10 feet of cord, and an adapter for standard 1/8 headphone jacks.

CONS:

- Other people can hear if you crank up the volume.
- Pricey, but they're worth the price.

OVERVIEW:

I won't pretend to know what Eargonomic Acoustic Refinement (E.A.R.) technology or an internal surround reflector is: I'm just an average guy who likes his music and movies, and doesn't enjoy feeling like his ears are drowning in sweat after taking the headphones off.
After using these, I can say that they not only gave me superior sounding bass, but they allowed me to hear sounds in music and movies that I've never picked up before. Plus, the coverings kept my ears free and clear from sweat.

Here's a few of the quality tests I performed:

MUSIC TESTS:

The Prodigy - Firestarter: This was the first song that jumped to mind when I heard these headphones give great bass, and the bass line was positively delicious. Anyone who's heard this song knows how powerful the bass line is...it thrummed through these headphones loud and clear without any feedback.

Soundgarden - Spoon Man: Another song that came through clear as crystal - the bass was a perfect balance with the lyrics - One didn't overpower the other.

Reek Da Villain Feat. Busta Rhymes & Swizz Beatz - Mechanics: This was a suggestion from a fellow coworker when I asked "What's the best song for a bass test as well as musical clarity?" Oh, how right he was. Each lyric sounded as crisp as a celery stick being snapped, and the pronounced bass only made the song sound better.

***SEE UPDATE***

My thoughts on the Sennheiser 558

First, off, I would like to begin with the standard "I am not an audiophile" disclaimer.

The package came from Dahmart and on time - within 2 days of ordering with expedited shipping. The headphones were in mint condition but without the box. As I looked at them it became increasingly harder not to plug them in, and so I did. Thus starting my first lesson in "enthusiast grade" headphones. In the coming week I would learn a lot about the headphones I had ordered, sound signatures, and the kind of sound I was after.

Believe me, I spent hours scouring the internet for information on the 558, and there is plenty of it. And so far I have yet to find a review that truly shows the Sennheiser 558 for what they are. I stumbled upon threads about how to do the foam mod to make them sound like the 598, claims that they have the "Sennheiser veil", claims they are absolutely amazing, and claims they are over-rated. Lets sort through it all and dive into the HD 558.

When I put them on they were easily the most comfortable headphones I have worn, then I listened to them. One word comes to mind when I think of the first time I heard them: underwhelmed. I had a playlist of different music to try with them when I first got them. There was no aggression to the music, the bass was too polite (read passive and recessed), and I didn't feel engaged by the music. I close my eyes actively searching for qualities above my old headphones, a year old pair of Sennheiser HD202s. And there was. As I focused on the music I noticed the lyrics easier to hear and understand, and presented more harmoniously with the instruments.

Package Type: Standard Packaging Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I compose music for my own personal entertainment and also for our company video demos. For this I use a variety of equipment all piped through a hefty Mackie mixer. Don't take that as a proclamation that I'm some sort of audiophile tech-expert - I'm far from it. But I do use my set up every day and have used a lot of audio equipment over the last thirty years. Generally I don't use cans when recording but if things are running late or we're just making too much noise then on they go.

My favorite headphones of choice aren't massively expensive - Sony MDR-V700DJ (beware of cheap knock-offs of these) and they cost circa the same as these Sennheisers, maybe a little less. It was therefore a good test to put in a few hours studio time with my existing cans which I'm so used to and then switch over to the HD 558. And what a switch! Firstly these chaps are considerably lighter than any other cans that I've used and half the weight of my metallic Sony beasts. They don't feel cheap because of it though and they're much more comfortable since the elongated earpieces sit over your ears instead of squishing on them. They also have a 1/4" jack at the end of the cable with a supplied 3.5mm adapter if needed - this is much better than the other way around for most pro/sumer instruments and equipment where 1/4" outputs are the norm.

But the most amazing part was the sound felt like it was being generated much further out than out of something stuck to the sides of my head. The audio is ethereal in its placement, softly passing through my noggin as the stereo sounds pan left and right. I know this sounds silly but standard headphones often have a clear separation of left and right but these blend it all so seamlessly.
