Had these for about 8 months now and I really like them. For $119 they are a steal. If they wear out in 3-5 years, I'll buy another pair. I own this pair which is a closed design and I own a pair of Phillips Fidelio X2's which is an open set. I use them both with my laptop using a portable DAC/AMP from LH Labs, the Geekout 1000 V2. The 553 Pro's are accurate will good clean bass, nice highs and good dynamics. They don't sound quite as nice as my Phillips but they do some things better and isolation is very good. These are the pair I reach most often for because of isolation and traveling portability. You won't find much better sound for this money and I find those complaints about non-removable ear pads and cables to be small quibbles that border on unjustifiable for expenditure.
