The Sennheiser HD 558 headphones are down to $69.98 on Best Buy. The next best price from a first party retailer is $90 at Walmart, whereas many other retailers have them for as much as $180 or more. This is Best Buy's Deal of the Day and won't be around tomorrow!
These headphones have been around for a very long time, but they've always been extremely popular as well. In 2012, PC Mag gave them an Editor's Choice with 4.5 stars out of 5. They pointed out something interesting in their review, "Sennheiser employs an 'Internal Sound Reflector,' which basically means that the slightly recessed inner panels of each earcup not only push sound toward the ear, but away from it. The effect is stunning—it sounds as if the audio is playing elsewhere in the room rather than right against your ear."
These headphones don't have any mic or remote. They aren't designed to work specifically with your smartphone or connect to Bluetooth. They were meant to be headphones for the home theater. Headphones you kept nice instead of shoved into your backpack. They were designed to have truly great, immersive, sound in an era where everyone else just wanted to listen to the Candy Crush theme song or Gangnam Style.
Even though these came out in 2012, you probably wouldn't be able to find better sound at this price even today.
