Choosing the right headphone can make a big difference in the quality of the music you listen to, and it’s not just about price: different headphones are better for different sound ranges, so you should choose one that suits your musical taste. Today, our friends at CNET take a look at the Audio Technica ATH WS55.
Many people who are fans of base heavy music genres like hip-hop and electronic look for headphones that deliver strong bass. If you are in this category, look no further than the Audio Technica ATH WS55, which, for $100, delivers some of the best bass response you can get for your money.
The ATH WS55 feature a lightweight (165 gram) design as well as Audio-Technica’s new Double Air Chamber System, which focuses the “air flow” produced by the driver to enhance bass output (in English that means more “oomph” on the low end). Comfort was fine – the headband is cushioned and overall build quality feels decent.
There are certainly more expensive headphones out there, but if ATH WS55 has everything you want, why bother with anything else?
