Hi Welcome to Pristine Note forum. Both are good earphones. T500 has alumunium cap vs 55i plastic. Soundwise T500 has more treble. WS55i is a headset with MIC has more bass. I would opt for T500 if I have a decent source.

Thank you for your reply. Also, i prefer listening to music for a long time. Is the bass too much? Because ATH has a reputation for more bass. Will Senheisser be a better option or ATH?

Hi Adith,

T-500 definitely doesn't have heavy bass. The W55i on the other hand is slightly bass heavy but not very boom . If you have a good sound card or DAC the T-500 will be best suited for extended music listening sessions . Its headband and fit is very comfortable.

Hi,

I bought the T500 and I am VERY disappointed. Firstly there is no noise cancellation. If the music is loud then the people near me can easily listen to it.

Secondly, i wanted less bass but the headphone DOES NOT have even little bass. I dont know whether it is a problem with my heaphone or T500 in general.

Thumbs down for me.

Hi Adith,


Firstly T-500 are closed headphones so they shouldn't leak as much sound as you describe as long as you get a good tight fit .

The bass as well has pretty decent punch if your fitting is perfect. A loose fit around the ears can result in no bass at all . Your problem of no bass and isolation seems to be of fit . Please ensure you have tightened the headband properly . If you still face the issue , it could also possibly be a manufacturing defect in which case , you may have to send them back to us for checking.

What source are you using ? A good pair of headphones like ATH-T500 will need a good sound card and will sound mediocre when used with onboard audio.

Hi,

Could you please tell me how to tighten the headband as i dont see any way of doing so. It just seems to be flexible.

I am using a good sound source where another pair of ear phones i own gives me decent bass but ATH is giving none!
