AKG K553 MKII overview

  • 1Description

The black AKG K553 MKII Closed-Back Studio Headphones combine the noise-isolating qualities of a circumaural, closed-back design with the spacious, dimensional sound of open-back headphones. With 50mm, low-impedance drivers, the headphones deliver precise sound reproduction with extended bass response. They are sensitive enough to be used on laptops and mobile devices, making them ideal for travel or critical listening on any player.

Lightweight (at 10.76 oz), the K553 MKII is equipped with detachable, extra-large soft earpads, which provide maximum wearing comfort over hours of continuous listening. The 2D-axis mechanism enables you to fold the headphones flat for convenient storage or handling when on the go.
