    These are an amazing bargain. I've ordered another pair in case I lose these.
    These headphones have a high power rating and sound good across the board. They fold up, have a bag, a high-quality coiled cord, and two 1/4" to 1/8" adapters - one is normal and the other is the 90 degree type.

    The highs aren't super piercing which is good for my hearing, the bass is nice and clear without overpowering everything else.
    Like many headphones twice their price, they are constructed of plastic so they shouldn't be thrown around. They should be fine with normal use, since unlike some expensive headhphones I've owned, they have the thin metal strip inside the plastic across the headband.

    The sound isolation is quite good, I work better with a small amount of leakage than in dead quiet. These suit me perfectly.
    Again, I've paid over twice as much for a "high-end" brand that didn't measure up to these.

    I purchased these to mix some home recordings. Upon opening the package, I was taken aback by how cheap they appeared. The plastic looks and feels crummy. I am afraid they will not last very long. As for the sound quality, they are decent. That is why I gave them a 3. The sound is pretty flat and works well for mixing, but I would not use them to listen to my records. The bass, as others have pointed out, is not boomy or impressive, but it is there. If you are a big hip hop fan, you may be disappointed. I would not recommend this product to a friend. And if / when they break, I am going to look elsewhere for a new pair.

    these headphones have a terribly tinny overbearing midrange type of sound. they are really comfortable though and i use them as dj headphones. these are definitely not the headphones you want to use for your home studio though

    Comments about American Audio HP550 Professional Studio Headphones:

    Looking for inexpensive headphones? These should do it for you. I use them in a club setting and have had no issues. Bought them 8 months ago and still going strong. Other headphones in this price range usually last me about 5 months. Getting another pair, but in black. The white ones are hard to keep white... but that can be expected.

        Comments about American Audio HP550 Professional Studio Headphones:

        I looked for a long time for a set of cans that would sound good without breaking the bank. I went ahead and ordered a set of these. If they didn't perform the way I needed, at least I would have a set that my son could use to practice with his keyboard.
        Simply put, I was blown away by the sound quality. I have used headphones that cost 4 times as much, and these more than hold their own. They are a great value.

          I recieved the American Audio HP550s in the SNOW color for an early X-mas gift and I was blown away with how good they sound. No they are not the top of the line but definitely worth it for the price and are very confortable even with extended use. A great starter headphone
