I have had this product since last night and there are not any bad things really, it is comfortable enough, looks amazing, but the sound quality is poor. I have to turn up the volume a lot to hear anything good, and the cord is really short. It's some where around 2 1/2 ft if I estimate. As I was doing a little dance to celebrate getting these, my phone fell out of my pocket, and the cord pulled, and I was afraid these broke, but they didn't. the cord is durable, but no long enough. I just don't want the jack to pull out of my phone, for fear of hurting the headphones. Overall, good looks, stylish, comfortable, but thin construction, I am always afraid if I do one thing wrong they will snap, and they do not have good bass. They are weak in sound, and they also don't have 3 button mic on the cord. What's with that? Good, but not great. So it gave what it promised (except the sound) and nothing else.

I ordered a red pair three Christmases ago. I've been making music for a while and have been through hundreds of pairs of headphones, but these have lasted and then some. The audio quality is perfectly balanced. Rich bass, good middles and vibrant highs. Very comfortable headphones. The speakers swivel and the upholstery is well-made--not to mention that they look professional. On top of all that, I've gotten the cord caught a ton of times, scraped the outside of the speakers, and even run over the headphones with a skateboard. The sound is unaffected and they show no signs of a short. You are actually robbing yourself if you don't give these a try.

Reasons why you should buy this over the Dr.Dre Beats. first thing that was wrong with the Beats was that it let the music out of the headphones. with the WS55's, the beat stays in your headphones(even with high volume.). The Beats are huge and easy to break. I break products really easily. I have had the Ws55's for a year now and not one problem has occurred. If you are looking for the Bass that just makes you headphones break and vibrate, then this is not the headphones for you. The bass on these headphones are punchy and greatly responsive. The high the mids and the low basses are amazingly handled with the speakers. overall it is a GREAT product.

OK Add me to the Skeptical list. I am always in search for better cans it seems. When I got these, I was instantly amazed. The high end is nice, clear, but not bright. The Bass in these blows that other set away. By far, it's nice, low, deep. Not rattle-some. (It doesn't over shake the cans.). The response is nice and clear, and the audio is not fatiguing to the ear. (A very often problem I have with cans). These are by far the best cans I have purchased and can't recommend these enough to others. My only draw back is they do get a little uncomfortable if you're listening for a while.

At first I was skeptical in buying a pair of headphones from a company I have never heard of, but after reading so many positive reviews I had to try them out. The headphones are extremely comfortable as well as light. I can wear these headphones for hours without feeling tightness or pain in my ears. The highs are perfect and the bass is rich and deep. I have compared these headphones to Beats and Ludacris headphones and it exceeds their quality by far! For over half the price! I would recommend these headphones to anyone who wants to experience a quality sound for cheap!

I've had these headphones for casual use for the better part of 3 years after getting upset about going through a pair of cheaper headphones once a year, and they still work amazing. The audio quality on the higher notes on this pair has always suffered from a small amount of noise, but that generally happens with ipods (I should have bought the more compatible version). But all in all this was a great buy that has lasted a long while even when used for many hours daily.

I've had these headphones for about 6 months, and i must say- these are my favorite headphones that I have bought to date. Sound quality is excellent, and I love how light they are. However, they are not quite as durable as I had hoped. One side has lost audio, and the pads on the side have flattened, making them slightly less comfortable. Overall, I would reccomend these, but if you have another 50 dollars or so to invest, I would say to go with the ATH-M50 or ATH-M50x.

If you listen at low to moderate volume, every time you turn your head the plastic makes creaking sounds. So unless you listen totally motionless, the noise the headphones make will drive you crazy.

I got these headphones today for a really good price and they exceeded my expectations. The bass is very responsive and boomy, but not overpowering. I had a bass boost equalizer and another equalizer set to boost bass and bass boost along side those two equalizers running and I got some very good bass on my MP3 player at max volume. I have yet to try it on my computer (will edit later when I do if at all possible), but judging by the results from the MP3 player I should see some very good bass, especially without an amplifier. The mids and highs were good, I really don't pay attention to those, but I expect you can get a decently balanced sound, but this will lean towards the bass side of the spectrum as this is enhanced for bass. They are comfortable despite the lack of padding at the top, and they fit nicely on my ears, but they do no go over my ears and my ears are a medium size. They are very lightweight so the amount of padding is more than sufficient. Because of the way these fit they seem to get rid of all the leakage. When the volume is up on maximum on my MP3 player and the bass is up the bass was noticeable in a very quiet room, but it's so insignificant someone would have to be next to you to notice, so the leakage is handled VERY well. My main concern is build quality. The build quality on these are very bad. You could be more rough with baby than with this. The cords seem loose, the plastic seems easily breakable, the cups seem to be easy to break, and the adjustment module seems weak. The only plus to the build quality is the metal headband, but that's not too significant. I would avoid these if you will use these for hours on end every day, but then again the warranty should suffice. My only other grips is the dual cords, they should have went with a single cord but this isn't too bad of a con. Overall I would recommend this if you're careful with it, but Audio Technica needs to try harder when it comes to build quality on these.

Pros: Very tight and controlled bass, energetic treble, excellent cup swiveling feature for portable functionality, makes electronic music come alive Cons: Strong clamping force at first, build feels a bit fragile, V-Shaped signature not best for mid-centric music, treble can get a bit splashy I was a bit skeptical at first about how these would sound, but when I put them on and started listening, I was instantly blown away. These headphones really make electronic music shine, especially with more atmospheric songs. DnB, electro and dubstep are perfectly reproduced. However, these don't just make electronic music sound incredible, but everything I tried with them sounded incredible; from Mozart, to Styx, all the way to Skrillex, Rchetype and back. The Audio-Technica Solid Bass WS55 stands up to its name. These have some of the most controlled and detailed bass that I've heard, especially for a bass-heavy headphone. It is deep, impactful, and extends quite well. Even with a major bass boost from an EQ or an amplifier, the bass stays controlled. Build is a bit iffy. Overall, it feels a bit fragile, like it might crack if I were to accidentally drop it onto a hard floor. The back of the cups are made of a nice aluminum with the Audio-Technica logo standing out. These are excellent for portable use. The swiveling cups allow someone to simply turn the cup and listen to someone talk on either side of them. I find it very useful. Comfort may depend on the person's head, but I found these to be a bit uncomfortable at first. The clamping force is really strong until you stretch it out a bit.Only took me a couple minutes of stretching to make them more comfortable for me. The signature on these is more or less a V-shaped signature, but there's more upper-mid presence than I normally find with V-shaped headphones, so vocals don't really sound distant. Separation is overall average with these. It's limited by the smaller cups. Soundstage is also average. I wouldn't describe it as too congested, but it's not to spacey. I find there to be a bit more depth than width. Bass - As stated earlier, the bass is very controlled and tight. It is really magnificent. Some of the best bass I've heard yet. Subbass extension is excellent. Mids - Mids aren't too prevalent on these, but they're clean, clear, and overall a good presentation from them. Treble - My favorite part of these headphones is the treble. It is energetic, lively, and sparkly, while not being sibilant or harsh. It can get a bit splashy with certain cymbals, though, but not too much. There's a good amount of detail provided here, but nothing to write home about. Overall - I would recommend these headphones to anyone looking for something bass-heavy and clean-sounding to use on the go; especially someone that listens to a lot of electronic music. Build could be a bit better. Truly outstanding sounding headphones.
