Engineered around 50-millimeter (2-inch) drivers, the largest AKG® drivers in its product range, AKG K550 headphones are ideal for private listening both at home and on the go. The closed-back design lets you concentrate on your music without disturbing – or being disturbed by – others nearby, and the large ear cups and new headband design ensure an amazingly comfortable fit. With a stereo mini plug and 6.3-millimeter (1/4-inch) jack adapter, you can enjoy the K550s with your hi-fi system and virtually any portable device, and a 2D-Axis folding mechanism makes them easy to stow away in a drawer between listening sessions.

Larger drivers, richer sound
The AKG® K550 reference-class headphones' 50-millimeter (2-inch) drivers are the largest of any AKG headphones in their product class. They deliver rich, lifelike sound across a frequency range of 12Hz to 28kHz, with the full dynamics and 3-D spatial imaging of a live performance. Their closed-back design ensures that you'll hear your music exactly as its creators intended you to hear it, with little ambient sound to distract you.

2D-Axis folding mechanism for easy storage and portability
Unlike most other full-size headphones, the AKG® K550 reference-class headphones fold flat - a convenient shape for fitting into a drawer at home or saving space in a backpack or briefcase when you're on the road.

Long-wearing comfort
Music professionals prize AKG® headphones for their performance - but after a long day in the studio, many pros will tell you that comfort becomes the paramount concern. AKG K550 reference-class headphones are surprisingly lightweight - only 305 grams (10.75 ounces) - with large ear cups and a new headband to minimize ear fatigue during even marathon listening sessions.

Compatibility with iPod, iPhone and Android™ devices
Wherever you take your music, the AKG® K550 reference-class headphones can retrieve it. The K550s are compatible with iPod, iPhone and Android™ devices, and the headphones come with a 3.5-millimeter to 6.3-millimeter (1/8-inch to 1/4-inch) jack adapter for connection versatility. Wherever you plug the K550s, their hard gold-plated jack ensures a strong connection for a clear audio signal.
