Audio-Technica ATH-WS55 review

 

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.

Audio Technica ATH-WS55 Review

 

Audio Technica ATH-WS55 Review tells the pros and cons of the latest headphone. This new headphone has been included with great features.

• Exciting bass ; • Impressive sound ; • Well-built ; • Light

• Tight on ears ; • Bit Expensive

Available with tight and controlled bass, ATH-WS55 does offer refined and treble performance just like any other high-end headphone. Though not par with brand’s more expensive ATH-50 headphones; still it is best suited for mobile use owing to its small...

Christmas gift for my teenage son

 

The perfect gift for my teenage son. He has had Beats but prefer Audio-Technica. He uses these headphones all the time. I would recommend these Audio-Technica headphones to friends.

Beats cannot compete

 

Can't really complain that the headphones don't breath because the acoustic seal makes the headphones extremely quiet for everyone around you, yet blast you with a full range of sound. The bass is exceptional for on ear headphones (I use them primarily...

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...
