Y55 is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good sound quality after you get used to these After about two years of use I'm happy with my headphones even though I had difficulties when I started using these. I had big troubles when after 10-15 minutes of use my ears started burning and I had pain in both sides of my head. The headphones felt too tight and I couldn't use them for a longer period of time. I used my headphones every day and after about 6 months I could wear them 30-60 minutes continuously. The pain has now gone away and I enjoy listening music with these headphones. Also the plastic parts of the headphones have endured small damage and small parts have fallen off. It's just a minor problem which doesn't affect to the listening experience. It's difficult to recommend these if someone has problems with too tight headphones, but otherwise the sound quality is great for this price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good sound, but has issues. I got this about one month ago and overall the sound is very good and they are very enjoyable to use, for about half an hour. After that point the headphones start to hurt my outer ears, not only for me but also for those whom I allowed a listen. I really liked them, but the pain is difficult to deal with. Mixed feelings overall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Top Allrounder! Ich nutze ihn überwiegend zum Dj `ing oder zum Genießen von eigenen Produktionen zwischen 24 pm und 6 am. :D Das kann er zu dem Preiß Absolut genial. Die Abschirmung ist gelungen und der Bass kommt in jeder Farbe und Knackigkeit die man braucht um es gut umzusetzen. Mitten und Höhen sind klar und machen auch nach längerer Zeit keine Schmerzen. Er sitzt sehr straff, was wohl der Abschirmung dient, was ich aber von AKG Dj Kopfhören schon gewohnt bin. Mein bis jetzt bester Köpfhörer für meine Zwecke, Schnell, robust, satt, und, brilliant einfach praktisch!
