With the K550MKIIIs, AKG® 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 – 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.

AKG K550 MKIII is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Sounds Owned these for nearly 2 months and am very pleased with their smooth, balanced and highly detailed sound. I did find it important however to give them some time. I don't believe in burn in but perhaps in break in or brain adjustment. Either way they appeared improved to me after 10 to 20 hours use. The balance was constant but bass notes, while no deeper, seemed to extend or fill out. Now they just sound beautiful to me. Good depth and impact while pretty close to neutral, how I prefer. I also felt comfort increased as the pads and cushion bedded in. Isolation is just ok, but good enough for me not to feel too disturbed by a TV in the background, and naturally far better than open back headphones. They get a little warm but I can last a movie comfortably. They are easily driven by my tablet and feel built to last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Sound Ich habe mir die Kopfhörer nach einigen überzeugenden Tests bestellt und war extremst positiv überrascht. Der Sound ist sehr klar, die Bässe sehr tief und haben punch. Man merkt jedoch dass ab ungefähr 25 Herz die Bässe "schwammig" werden. Dies ist jedoch fast zu vernachlässigen. Die Mitten sind ausgewogen und die Höhen nicht schrill. Das beste Klangbild liefert der Kopfhörer bei ungefähr 50 - 60 % Last. Bei geringeren Lautstärken kommen die Bässe zu schwach. Die passive Dämmung der Kopfhörer ist sehr angenehm, ungewollte tieffrequente Umweltgeräusche sind nicht mehr hörbar. Höherfrequente Geräusche sind jedoch noch wahrnehmbar. Ist ja schließlich kein aktives Noise canceling system. Der Kopfhörer sitzt auch noch nach mehreren Stunden Nutzung sehr angenehm auf dem Kopf. Das Gewicht darf man jedoch nicht außen vor lassen. Wer leichte Kopfhörer gewöhnt ist oder es stört wenn der Kopfhörer mehr wiegt ist hier nicht gut bedient. Der Kopfhörer hat ein gutes Gewicht! Ich bereue den Kauf des AKG K550 Mk3 nicht und würde ihn ohne viel Kritik weiterempfehlen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent casque je possédais déjà un k550 version cordon 3 mètres non remplaçable ,j'ai commandé ce nouveau modèle cordon détachable ,acheté un cordon plus court 1,20 m. ce casque très confortable ,léger ,esthétique délivre un super son ,manque un peu de basse ,ajouter 3 a 4db avec le correcteur de tonalité selon le genre de musique que l'on écoute .Contrairement aux critiques aux tests,il est adapté pour tout les genres de musiques ,perso j'écoute du rock progressif ,R&nB,electronica,pop,jazz etc... et vraiment il délivre un super son.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best yet I bought these a couple of months ago, repacing the MK2's, minor concern that the cable has a tendency to tangle & it is bother to detach the cable to sort, would not this be better to have a flat cable?, but the detachable abilty is a great step forward.
