CLOSED-BACK REFERENCE CLASS HEADPHONES
With the K 550s, AKG¬ģ 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 ‚Äď creating reference-class headphones ideal for private listening both at home and on the go. 50mm drivers, the largest in our product line, deliver great AKG 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.

What makes the K550 so special?
The Best of Both Worlds:
Combines the advantages of closed-back headphones (no sound leakage for a truly private experience) with the open sound of open-backs (typical ‚Äúspeakers‚ÄĚ sound) ‚Äď making it ideal for both home and street use.
The 50mm (2'') driver, the biggest driver in the AKG headphone range,delivers a realistic soundstage ‚Äď far beyond what other headphones typically deliver.
With large ear cups and a new, lightweight headband design, the K550 offers an amazing, comfortable fit allowing for hours of continuous listening.
The K550 works and plays well with virtually any portable device including iPod, iPod touch or iPhone.
