Listen and Relax
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I bought these headphones to replace a pair I had used for about 25 years. The old pair was getting rather uncomfortable and unimpressive in sound. These HD559 headphones are amazing. One thing I really like about them is the open back design. I seldom (if ever) listen to music in a noisy environment. So the noise-cancelling and blocking design of many headphones is something I really don't need. In fact, I like the open back design because I can relax better. If something unexpected does occur, such as the door bell ringing, I will not be sealed away and unable to hear. I really do not like being closed off from my environment. And the sound? Just great! I have been listening to music and movies in amazement with these HD559s. I am completely satisfied.
Pros: Open back plus good sound
Cons: My speakers might feel neglected
