Can anything beat the HD558s in the $125 price range?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Title says it all. Amazon has 558s at $130 with free shipping, and I'm about to pull the trigger. I've already got a XONAR DG if that makes a difference. Open/closed doesn't matter. My music tastes are varied, I dip my toes into a lot of genres, so it's not like I crave bass or anything like that.


Thanks a bunch!

If you were in the UK I'd say AKG K612 but in the US those are twice the price.

Probably not is my answer.

Give the HD558s a little time to break in, like dozens of hours.

You might consider getting this cable to go with the HD558s.

The cable comes with the 3.5mm plug, makes it a little easier to use the HD558s.
