    Audio-Technica Consumer ATH-A550Z reviews

    ATH-A550Z Art Monitor Closed-Back Dynamic Headphones is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound, Comfort, and Value To start, these were my first pair of real cans that weren't a gaming headset so keep that in mind while reading. From the minute you open the box you know what your getting with these. There are no frills or fancy packaging, just the headphones, with the 1/4' adapter included as well if you have an amp, DAC, or an audio interface with a 1/4 input. I'm not to big of a fan of the cable since it's somewhat rubberized but that's just a nitpick. The wing system is a love it or hate it thing. I personally enjoy it as it doesn't concentrate the pressure anywhere on your head. If the fit is too lose for you, its easy to put a rubber band between the wings to get the desired clamping force. If you have thick hair, the wings will leave impressions on top too so keep that in mind if you plan in wearing them for long periods at work or something like that. Sound wise I love them. Compared to my previous headsets - Logitech G933, HyperX Cloud 2, & PlayStation Elite Gold Headset - these sound fantastic. The bass can leave a little to be desired if you love heavy bass, but everything I've listened to sounds clear and sharp. The soundstage is great for games. In shooters like CS:GO and Overwatch you can hear everything around you perfectly. Moving to something like Dark Souls 3, you'll be completely immersed in every environment. For music use these can be a tad harsh to listen to for long periods at first however you'll get used to it pretty quick. I'm very happy with my first pair of true headphones from AT. The black and gold color scheme is muted enough to fit in most setups and looks very clean. The wing system is fantastic in my opinion, and I'm not sure if you can beat these for the price. Overall these are a fantastic entry into the audiophile community without breaking the bank.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Replacement for ATH-A700X These were a direct replacement for a pair of ath-a700x's that finally died on me. They strongly resemble the other high quality ATH studio monitors. They need a few hours to burn in, but are crisp, bright, clear, and fill out the sound stage with a pleasant mix of clarity and fullness. You can really hear the isolated instruments and the pauses and separation of everything. They are not super bassy but more balanced. Great product for the price. I mostly use them for gaming and music.
