AKG K550 Headphone Review

 

Expensive leather shoes.”

Any headphone that brands itself as “Reference Class” better be damn good. This one is ; Build quality is very good. Smells like fine leather, if you like that sorta thing ; Great seal and isolation

There are cheaper (though not necessarily better) headphones out there ; Smells like shoes, if you’re not into that kinda thing. I assume the smell disappears after a while ; Not very portable. No mic, if you needed one. A little short on accessories...

I get to play with a lot of neat stuff as a Technoodling reviewer. The K550 earns a spot on the list of review items that I wish I didn’t have to send back. It’s well built, it’s classy, it’s good looking, and most importantly it sounds great. Yes...

AKG’s New Reference: The K550

 

To be honest I was never a big fan of AKG headphones. The K240 "Sextett", the K340 Hybrid Electrostatic, to the legendary K1000. Before the K550, the K701/K702/Q701...

Mike. I interest to read classical music review with any audio gear from you.

Portable headphones that sound absolutely gigantic.

Huge soundstage, Decent-looking

Non-removable cable, Cable too long for portable use, Slightly flat-sounding

AKG K550

 

Rousingly musical headphones with no obvious deficiencies

Beefy build; comfortable; spacious, detailed and natural sound

Pretty big; sound more like ?250-worth than they look

Unleash your inner audiophile on a budget

 

First, let me start by saying that I have owned a number of different headsets for a number of years, and these have been by far my favorite in the price range. These cans outed a pair of Sennheisers that I had on to for a number of years. There a...

Great headphones

 

I thought these headphones had great sound and they folded up easily. I compared them with a different pair more than half the price and actually loved the sound so I exchanged them. It really depends on your needs and I only needed them for mixing...

No listerner fatque with these.

 

If you just like sitting down and listening - you will love these. They aren't the most detail, but they wont wear you out either. The over the ear design is comfortable. Great for Jazz and Classical.

Did the research, it paid off.

 

I am in love with these headphones, the style on them are just absolutely gorgeous. I haven't even owned these headphones for more than a few hours and I can't get enough of them. The sound quality is perfect, I am hearing things in songs I've listened...
