AKG® engineers have optimized the K550 headphones for a fully immersive listening experience. Starting with a 1-31/32-inch (50-millimeter) driver on each ear, these reference-class headsets use Real Image Engineering to create a highly realistic sound environment with a true sense of three-dimensional space. Stylish and portable, the K550s let you take AKG studio-quality sound with you go wherever you go.
The lightweight, comfortable K550s have impressive passive noise reduction and extremely low sound-leakage levels. So you can stay blissfully inside your sound environment for hours on end.
Two 1-31/32-inch (50-millimeter) drivers, the largest in the AKG product line, produce powerful, detailed sound from portable devices and home audio systems alike. The K550s’ closed-back design offers enhanced passive noise reduction and extremely low sound-leakage levels. With large ear cups and a lightweight headband, the stylish and portable K550s provide hours of comfortable, continuous listening and let you take AKG studio-quality sound with you wherever you go. And when you’re not using the headphones, a 2D-axis fold-flat mechanism makes them easy to store or transport. The headphones’ classic, sophisticated design proves that this impressive headset isn’t engineered only for the ears.
Your private, immersive sound environment awaits as the K550 is one of the most accurate headphones ever produced.
