  • TAG : Sennheiser HD 558 overview and full product specs on CNET.
  • Clarity fiends may want to consider the AKG K271 MKII, and bassheads something like the Ultrasone HFI-680, but as an all-rounder that can accommodate virtually all tastes, the Sennheiser HD 558 are very tough to beat at the price. Their fairly neutral sound can skip between rock and classical tracks without a slip, and also makes them an excellent choice for sticking into a television or receiver for late-night TV or movie-watching.

    The Sennheiser HD 558 are an excellent entry point into high-end audio. Detailed, refined and smooth-sounding, they never offend the ear and don't spend any time on surface level details like the HD 598. They skip between genres, and between music, movies and TV, with ease, and are supremely comfortable to wear.

  • You will find lots to love about these Sennheiser HD 558s all the same: their smooth sound is very listenable, and they’re comfortable to wear – why not give them a try?

    The Sennheiser HD 558 look a lot like the rest of Sennheiser's new-breed headphones, the HD 518 and . Sitting between the middle of the two, they're not crafted completely out of luxury materials, but they offer the most important elements - comfort and sound quality.

    If you do decide to take the Sennheiser HD 558 out with you, passers-by will be able to hear what you're listening to as they're open-backed headphones. The perforated back grille of each cup leaks sound, and also means that they provide very little isolation from the noise of the outside world. They're next-to useless on public transport, unless your aim is to annoy your fellow passengers.

The Sennheiser HD558 is a full-size open dynamic driver headphone. It has been on the market for several years now, proving itself to be a very capable set of headphones for a reasonable price.
