'A hugely capable pair of closed-back headphones that just don't sound closed. Rousingly musical and with no obvious deficiencies.' What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine.

Group test winners

Fresh from their group test win where the AKG K550 headphones triumphed over nine rivals, these headphones come with the highly coveted 5-star What Hi-Fi award.

Reference sound quality
With decades of experience in the studio few can beat AKG's heritage. With the K550s, AKG have sought to recreate that studio sound with toned down aesthetics. Using large 50mm drivers and a closed back design gives these headphones a deep, powerful bass that's also very tightly controlled and realistic. And thanks to what AKG call, 'Real Image Engineering', the K550's sound open, accurate and engaging - even over extended listening periods.

Total comfort
With their large earpieces, the K550's wrap around your ears for total audio immersion. They're also lightweight and with the broad headband, very comfortable to wear. Although larger than the average headphone, the closed-back design prevents sound leakage, making them ideal for quality music on the go. The fold-flat ear cups also make them easier to pack in your bag.

If size doesn't matter but sound does, then the AKG K550 headphones are simply the best in their class - just ask What Hi-Fi!

Includes a 2-year limited guarantee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Build Quality Despite their size, these headphones are extremely comfortable and lightweight and have excellent Build Quality and the sound once run in is also brilliant for the price. Very happy with my purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My head is not big enough I read the reviews before buying these so I was excited to buy them. Unfortunately it's impossible to get any decent sound unless I use my hands to push them onto my ears. I'm afraid my head is not big enough. It's not a particularly small head but the head set is not tight enough. Not sure if the person reviewing from Which had a particularly big head, but they don't work for me.Very disappointed. I won't go off only reviews again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sounds great When I decided it was time I bought a decent yet affordable pair of 'phones, I was bewildered by the choice. But not only was this product recommended by What HiFi, it was also identified as a good product by my local RicherSounds outlet. It is certainly a good buy; the sound is fantastic, with a depth and clarity that surpasses my expectations. I'm discovering again all my favourite albums with details that I'm hearing for the first time. Yes, they are a bit bulky, but this was identified as a possible issue by RicherSounds before buying, and their size doesn't detract significantly from their comfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service by RS Headphones block any outside sound and warm you up during winter. Long cable is good in some cases and bad in others. Very comfortable and fit nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great headphones This is my first set of hifi headphones and I can only say that they sounds and looks great. Very comfortable also (but rather big as all over ears headphones).They can be driven simply by smartphone or tablet so its not necessary to buy additional gears like headphones amp etc. I m listening flac files from my tablet (Asus zenpad 3S) and sound is very clear and detailed. Only if you like HEAVY bass then better try them before buing (no problem at all in Watford RicherSounds ;) Don't get me wrong this headphons ply very nice bass as well but someones like to listening more bass than enything else and this headphones may not be for them. (Or maybe my tablet is not enough powerfull to ply lots bass??) Fully recomended.
