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 What I was looking for Fantastic headphones. Bought them to replace a pare of sennheiser momentum on-ear headphones that were giving me a headache and these are much more comfy. Really pleased with the sound quality and on offer they were cheaper than amazon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Incredible Pair Of Headphones I have had these for just over a month now and can say these are without a doubt the best headphones I have ever owned. The sound quality on them is fantastic and you can really hear the detail in the music coming through them. I've only really tested with my 24 bit FLAC collection so far so can't comment on what MP3s sound like through them, but for those serious about sound quality, these do an amazing job or reproducing the sounds the artist wanted you to hear. The detachable cable that comes with it is a bit on the long side, so using these when out and about can be a bit of a hassle with the length, but because it's detachable means you can get another, shorter cable instead which is great. Comfort-wise, I have no complaints so far and have not had any discomfort when listening to for longer periods of a few hours. Had I not picked these up in a recent sale, I would still have been fully prepared to pay full asking price for these headphones as they are really that good. So, if you're thinking about getting these, but not sure whether to go for another brand or not (like I was), I would fully recommend them and wouldn't hesitate to buy another pair if they were to break on me further down the line.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A great but flawed set of headphones... Note this is based on my 18 months experience with the K550 MKII. They're simply brilliant, they're the best closed back set of headphones I've listened to and over long periods of time they're relatively comfortable, so where is the problem? Unfortunately the clamp, although adjustable is just too weak to create a decent seal between the extra large comfy cups and your head - at first I was distracted by how good they are, but overtime constantly fidgeting with them becomes a tiresome experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Headphones at a Fantastic Price I bought AKG K550 MK3 headphones two weeks ago at the Holburn branch. These are very good headphones that are very comfortable to wear and offer a pleasant high quality sound. All that at a bargain price and great service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent service and product AKG headphones. The staff were extremely helpful. Everything you would want from a relatively expensive purchase. Would always recommend richer sounds Newcastle

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best yet! Teamed up with a Denon DCD 720ae, great detain and depth over the whole spectrum from Delain to Tangerine Dream. Easy to pick out what each performer is doing. Would have liked to use this with my Marantz 6005 but this no longer works Comfort is excellent and for once decent cable length. These are the best phones I have listened to so 5 stars to AEG 5, stars to Denon and 1 star to Marantz.
