With the K 550s, AKG® engineers have struck a masterful balance between the noise-isolating qualities of closed-back headphones and the spacious, dimensional sound of an open-back design – creating reference-class headphones ideal for private listening both at home and on the go. 50mm drivers, the largest in the AKG product line, deliver great sound from your hi-fi system or virtually any portable device. The large ear cups and new headband design ensure an amazingly comfortable fit, and the 2D-axis mechanism folds flat to stow or go.
Lightweight, comfortable and stylish: perfect at home and on-the-go
Real Image Engineering for accurate definition and impression of width, distance and depth
Closed-back design for a fully personal listening experience
50mm drivers for outstanding sound from any device
Larger drivers, richer sound
The AKG® K550 reference-class headphones’ 50-millimeter (2-inch) drivers are the largest of any AKG headphones in their product class. They deliver rich, lifelike sound across a frequency range of 12Hz to 28kHz, with the full dynamics and 3-D spatial imaging of a live performance. Their closed-back design ensures that you’ll hear your music exactly as its creators intended you to hear it, with little ambient sound to distract you.
2D-Axis folding mechanism for easy storage and portability
Unlike most other full-size headphones, the AKG® K550 reference-class headphones fold flat – a convenient shape for fitting into a drawer at home or saving space in a backpack or briefcase when you’re on the road.
Compatibility with iPod, iPhone and Android™ devices
Wherever you take your music, the AKG® K550 reference-class headphones can retrieve it. The K550s are compatible with iPod, iPhone and Android™ devices, and the headphones come with a 3.5-millimeter to 6.3-millimeter (1/8-inch to 1/4-inch) jack adapter for connection versatility. Wherever you plug the K550s, their hard gold-plated jack ensures a strong connection for a clear audio signal.
