What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Sennheiser HD 558 Headphones
  • They are light weight, don't squeeze my head too hard, the oval ear cups fit my ears completely inside.
  • They are super light weight but without feeling cheap. They fit snug and the soft material makes them really comfortable.
  • These Sennheisers are lightweight and comfortable, even for extended (3-4 hour) listening sessions.
  • Fantastic! Light weight, comfortable, and sturdy! I can wear them for hours. They are also the best sounding headphones I have and blows beats out of the water!
  • The biggest problem I have with these buds is the weight and the structure. It tends to aggravate my neck posture, sending my head into a forward tilt that makes this very uncomfortable.

What customers say about "Features"
Sennheiser HD 558 Headphones
  • Incredible soundstage! Boomy lows, without being headache inducing, and crystal clear highs give you a level of clarity that is just unbelievable.
  • Nice deep bass! The bass that these headphones output is incredible! It doesn't drown out other sounds, nor does it vibrate your head to make you nauseous.
  • Very nice range of sound that isn't too bass heavy or too high pitch. Very comfortable, a few hours of use and it doesnt feel heavy on the head.
  • The padding attracts hair and dust so you'll be cleaning these every so often.
  • Due to the cord being attached to the adapter, the size of the adapter makes it unlikely to be used on mobile devices.
