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.

Amazing For The Price

By Averagejoey

Comments about American Audio HP550 Professional Studio Headphones:

These are great headphones. They sound amazing! Especially for the price you get them at. They come with a case, and adapters. I was surprised to see the headphone input but they send an adapter so it makes no difference. They are great headphones the only down side is the fact the earpads are not very big, therefore they cover your ears but dont enclose them completely. Small complaint but other than that an awesome buy@

Great sound quality!

By Chris Maymi

from Puerto Rico

Comments about American Audio HP550 Professional Studio Headphones:

If you don't want to spend a lot on headphones, then this is the product for you, won't have to look any further, it has everything you could ever need.
Liked a lot the fact that it included one straith 1/8 to 1/4 converter and a L-shape 1/8 to 1/4 converter. Also liked that it has a very long cable so you don't have to worry about being close to the equipment. You can also adjust them to whatever size you want. Also adjust them anyway you want for monitoring the music with either the left or right ear.
Sound quality is pretty good, perfect for begginers, has a great bass which is perfect for when you want to produce. You can hear almost every detail of the song. As for the headphones, they are very well designed, really comfortrable and very compact, perfect for DJ use.
For the price, can't ask for anything better.

Very happy with his set for the price, sound quality, and fit.
Good quality and sound for a small price! Buy these, you will not regret it!
Not top of the line, but at this price you just cant beat this set at this quality.
Again, not top of the line, but damn good for your money.

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

    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.

    Comments about American Audio HP550 Professional Studio Headphones:

    I bought these cause I wanted some nice headphones for reasonable price and at first they worked great until the right side started to "buzz" at most frequencies probably within the first month of having them. I need to call American Audio to try and get them RMA'd. I like the design and they are comfortable. I like the flexibilty so i'd really like to get them replaced and hopefully have them stay clean enough for a bit longer. In the mean time, I bought the Shure SRH440 and they are doing great. I guess you get what you pay for in the long run, but it might also be a matter of luck.

    By far the best headphones I own for the cheap $!

    By Robotic Joe

    from Toledo, Ohio

    Comments about American Audio HP550 Professional Studio Headphones:

    By far the best headphones I own for the cheap price. I bought these on, stupid deal of of the day. For around 20 bucks. Always look on Deal of the Day first because if not you might pass up a great deal. Great powerful bass, best for splatterbreak, hip-hop, trip-hop or drum n' bass producing. Would even be great for all you hardcore actual bass guitar players. Because of the way it was made i believe to be more of bass phones. But i love em' for my producing so i couldn't go more right with these and the price is a bargin even at regular musician's friend price!

    Ordered these puppies to be used for my Alesis Forge e-drum kit but actually use it in versatile situations like recording and music tracking. Like I said, not too bassy like my AudioTechnicas or to trebly like my Sony headphones. A bit bulky but it works great. Love the storage bag. I got mine on sale and what a deal.

              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.
