If you're looking for some affordable audiophile headphones, look no further then the Sennheiser HD555 Professional Headphones with Sound Channeling
These headphones have a great sound stage; when listening to the Prelude from Bach's cello suites, it hits you right in the middle of the head, exactly where you want it. Instead of stereo sound being in the left or right ear, it feels as though it surrounds you. These phones are also great for dvds and tv, and can be worn all day with mild to no discomfort. The soft velor ear pads surround your ears without suffocating them, and without sacrificing sound.
Although the bass is lacking, the clarity and comfort of these phones make up for it.
Not to mention they're only 85 dollars!
