Product Research

Features

Eargonomic Acoustic Refinement (E.A.R.): Sennheiser's E.A.R. technology enables ideal sound channeling for an exceptional listening experience. Additionally, sound is optimized using angled acoustic baffles parallel to the listener's ear.

Elliptical Circumaural Ear Cups: The HD 558 headphones feature an around the ear design; the velour covered ear cups are adjustable on multiple axes and the headband extends to optimize fit.

Open Sound: The HD 558 headphones feature high-quality metal mesh over the back of the ear cups for open and transparent sound.

Advanced Duofol Diaphragm: The diaphragms of dynamic headphones typically consist of a very thin film, moved by an attached coil. Sennheiser's Advanced Duofol diaphragm technology effectively eliminates standing waves inside the capsule by using a computer optimized diaphragm shape for purer sound reproduction.

Aluminum Voice Coils: The HD 558s utilize extremely lightweight aluminum voice coils to improve efficiency and ensure excellent transient response.

Gold-Plated Connector: The included cable features a gold-plated 1/4" connector; a 1/4" to 1/8" (3.5mm) adapter is also included.
