Audio-Technica ATH-WS55BK Solid Bass ( Black)


Audio-Technica makes a lot of headphones and several of them, including the ATH-M50 ($160) and ATH-M30 ($60), offer excellent sound for the money. The company's ATH-WS55 Solid Bass, a smaller over-the-ear headphone , isn't as well known as those...

The ATH-WS55 Solid Bass over-ear headphones offer impressive sound for less than $100, with tight, punchy bass and very good detail. They also seem well built, and are fairly compact and lightweight for an over-ear model.

No inline remote/mic for making cell phone calls, and the headphones' comfort level doesn't match their performance.

While they may not offer the perfect fit for everyone, the ATH-WS55 Solid Bass headphones offer impressive sound for the money.

Best Headphones I Own


Don't fall for the Beats/Monster shiznit, or even Bose for that matter. I had the original Bose headphones from ~5 years ago ($160-$180) and these Audio-Technica sound just as good if not BETTER. Not to mention the bass is more powerful, yet it doesn't...
