Bob’s general comments Submitted by Bob Katz on February 18, – 5: If i can barely feel, let alone hear the low end, I’ll pass. And how big is the sealing-problem when wearing glasses? It is harder for me to eq headphones with wonky midranges, they often end up sounding gritty. Is it transparent enough to make difference if I add a tube amp like pan am?

When I move me head around, they do shift a bit.

Customer reviews

I found the headphone to be muddy with practically all the frequencies flowing over into each other. For Jazz, the HE is very good though. One relative of mine, owns a Ranch with Horses that need daily attentions, he also own 7 Boats stored behind the Barn, very nice boats but hasn’t been boating since he bought the Ranch. I don’t know the reference. Yeah, I know, the devil is in the details: I think the M50x would be a much more entertaining choice.

They would add some more body to the bass. New, used, and refurbished products purchased from Marketplace vendors are subject to the returns policy of the individual vendor.


I have bought them because of your recommendation! The background is still blacker on the K, the sound cleaner, and the soundstage imaging, accuracy, depth, and coherence all being superior on the K Reply June 10, Gothika Genta.

AKG K550 review

They have a soundstage that rivals my open-backed Sennheiser HDs, but are closed so I can listen to whatever I like without others hearing it, unlike with my HDs. P I really like these comfort wise and sound wise you can’t go wrong, unless you really feel that you need some exotic planar drivers and and open back design.

Reply January 17, Mike. Continue to the next page…. I also wear glasses so within 30 mins it can get uncomfortable to quite unbearable within an hour. Then of course i have my Stax, which I think beat everything out there, with a little bass boost EQ, of course.

Sponge ear cups are designed to eliminate discomfort for long hours of wear. Share your thoughts with other customers.

AKG K review | What Hi-Fi?

Thanks for a good review overall. Perhaps those that included only a short cord did so to prevent the reviewer from using it to hang himself in frustration and disgust. In fact, most people seem to think that SRH has a somewhat V-shaped response with recessed mids and boosted bass and highs, and graphs also show this.


I would surely recommend the AKG K’s for someone with some slight hearing loss like me. Now I really just want to get rid of the wire. Clearly there is much less HF energy starting at 6 khz from the FSP than another well known and well liked set of cans and probably why I feel they are dull sounding to me. The soundstage on the HD puts you more in the music, with a high end amplifier that is.

I do believe it would last a long time. Too many days of sadness like this for America in recent years.

The midrange sealed category is the most important for me. All I can tell you is what I hear. Reply January 17, lumberjake. K50 you can get some of that by tweaking what you’ve already got or buying 2nd hand though, if you’re on a tighter budget.
