Good headphones but have started falling apart and microphone stopped working

James Potter, Amazon
20 July 2015
  • Summary: Purchased these as they were on special offer. The sound quality is very good on them and have used them daily and found them comfortable. I have had them 6 months and the ear pad stitching has started to come apart and the microphone now just has static coming out of it.

Not worth the money - my grados are far superior. For me

Michael Hill, Amazon
5 May 2015
  • Summary: Not worth the money - my grados are far superior. For me, lots of bad points: • the cable is too short - another 30cms would have been better. • the inline mic and controls ONLY work on apple or blackberry devices - NOT android.

Okay, but sent them back

Guy Harwood, Amazon
30 October 2014
  • Summary: The sound is great, very roomy. I sent them back after a few days for the following reasons... 1) They are huge 2) They felt uncomfortable after roughly 30 minutes and i wanted to take them off to give my head a rest 3) The cable is cheap, and coils up, which is annoying and looks awkward (the K550...

Premium looking headphones, flat and clear sound, but will not be my daily driver.

Yazri Yaakob, Amazon
14 April 2013
  • Summary: I have these and NAD HP 50, the latter wins hands down any day in terms of clarity. Listening to a song with the NAD feels like having the singer singing right next to you. These AKG do not give the same impression. I'd have given these two stars if I had paid full price.

OK ur NOT portable!

A. D. Jones, Amazon
14 April 2013
  • Summary: Currently own Beats and AKG 451s and wanted to try something less bass orientated. As other reviews, although marketed as portable these are in no way portable due to their shear size and the cans do not fold. Additionally, and more disappointing is that at this price there was no protection bag!

... but some problems prevent me from giving these a good score - Primarily

Dr. SID, Amazon
14 April 2013
  • Summary: Very wide soundstage but some problems prevent me from giving these a good score - Primarily, the sound is fantastic with a very wide stereo feel. As with all the other reviews, yes the Bass is weak and the treble seems a tad too high, but simple EQ can fix this.

User Review

Rasskazoff Andrey, Yandex
13 February 2015
  • Excerpt: Ни в коем случае не рекомендую. Пожалеете, купил после долгих мучений и разочарований Sony MDR-XB950AP и о чудо! Это не просто небо и земля в сравнении с AKG 551-ми, а небо и подземелье, глубокое, причём.
  • Pros: Классный дизайн. Надёжная конструкция. Короткий провод с микрофоном. Удобная посадка. Мега-пафасная коробка с бархатом. На это достоинства заканчиваются.
  • Cons: Мнение моё субъективное. У каждого свои уши. Я глухотой не страдаю. И слышу практически весь спектр частот, ну из тех, которое способно воспринимать человеческое ухо.Я не фанат супер-баса. Но я люблю, когда он присутствует, более того, чем он ниже, глубина его только радует. Но в приемлемом приде...

Kopfhörer super, Kabel mangelhaft

MM, Amazon
6 December 2014
  • Summary: Klang: 5/5 Komfort: 5/5 Verarbeitung: 4/5 Kabel: 1/5 Der Kopfhörer ist bequem zu tragen obwohl er sehr groß ist, der Klang ist spitze. Das Kabel ist jedoch mehr als nur miserabel: Es ist viel zu dünn und die Knicke die es bereits in der Verpackung hatte gehen auch nach längerer Zeit nicht raus.

high end average headphones

Nuno Pimenta, Amazon
30 October 2014
  • Summary: Theu are good if you compare with overall headphones. If you are expecting high end headphones they may be a little bit disappointing. The sound could be more detailed... I like to hear all instruments and every detail in all sorts of music genres. The bass could also pump just a little bit more.
