Alan, Glasgow, Scotland Music lover

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
- Extremely comfortable assuming you don't have large ears or a larger than average head - people with either may find it quite "death grip"-like on their heads, but if you have normal sized ears and head then these can sit there and be comfortable for 8+ hours at a time.
- Open design means they sound good, but it also has the advantage of providing air to your ears - all to often closed designs make your ears hot/sweaty/uncomfortable after a fairly short period, this doesn't happen with the 555's.
- If you are inclined, you can modify these headphones to provide similar sound quality to 595's - at lower cost.
Bad points:
- Quite fragile feeling, I'm unsure how long they would last for people with larger heads (putting more strain on the headband)
- Not quite as good at the lower end of the frequency scale compared to some closed designs
- Depending on your sound setup, these may require a headphone amp. For the cost, they seem to be aimed at the more casual listener (like me), so this could detract from the overall value if you have to spend more to get their full potential.
