Now more comfortable than ever, the AKG K550 MKIII headphones continue their class-leading tradition.

The best made better

With a whole heap of awards to its name, the AKG K550s have become the default choice for over-ear headphones around this price. That hasn’t prevented AKG from improving them, though! With a redesigned headband the MKIII model are more comfortable than ever.

Hear every detail
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 their largest 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 newly designed 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 2D-Axis mechanism with folding ear cups also make them easier to pack in your bag.

Supersize your listening experience, with the AKG K550 MKIII.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and comfort from AKG Having used the K550 mk1 headphones for some years found, at the recommendation of Richer Sounds, the new Mk3s which retain all the best points of the former but with a much smoother, better balanced sound without losing any of the detail or amazing bass of the original. Yet another example of the knowledgeable,friendly and honest staff at Richer Sounds, Exeter.
