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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing pair of headphones! I bought these a month ago and I absolutely love them! They are so detailed and the soundstage on them is truly outstanding. I mainly use these for gaming because they are absolutely perfect for it.
