AKG K550 — A New Closed Headphone Favorite

One of AKG’s CES 2012 releases is the K550 ($299), a full-size, closed headphone sensitive enough to be driven from a portable player with the tonal accuracy of the K701/702, but with fuller bass presence. Finally, a closed headphone that rivals the Denon AH-D2000 that looks and feels like it will withstand the rigors of portable use!


The bass is tight and detailed as we’ve come to expect from AKG, but with a fullness that rivals the Denon D2000, only lacking the extreme sub-bass extension of the Denon. The mid-range presentation is lush, silky and cleaner than the thicker mids of the D2000, and while the highs are crisp and articulate, they never reach a point of harshness like the D2000 is prone to at higher volumes. We found the soundstage of the D2000 to be slightly more open and airy, but the K550’s imaging is excellent with good separation and definition, demolishing the sound of any other closed AKG headphone.


The excitement is high for the AKG K550 here at HeadRoom. We’ve been long-time fans of the Denon AH-D2000 and the K550 gives it a serious run for the money, especially at $50 lower MAP. This is a great choice for someone looking for a tonally accurate headphone with a tight and full bass response, but doesn’t want the fuller, thicker presentation of the D2000.

Había leído algo sobre él en head-fi, pero como siempre había opiniones tan dispares que no sabía qué pensar. Y mira que el auricular lleva ya un tiempillo dando vueltas por ahí, y aquí nadie lo ha probado. Me llama la atención, máxime cuando aquí tiene un precio tan bajo.

Un saludo.
