Massdrop x AKG 2.0

AKG’s latest revision to the K550 line is a complementary product to the open-back K7XX. Delivering noise isolation and bassy goodness in a closed-back design that won’t leak sound, the AKG K553 Pro Studio Headphone aims to provide a high-end listening experience at an entry-level price.

Closed Yet Open

The K553 Pro is designed to couple the noise-isolating qualities of a closed-back headphone with the expansive soundstage of an open-back model, offering exceptional performance for use in the studio and at home. The 50-millimeter drivers offer a strong, accurate bass response that doesn’t muddle the midrange, delivering music that sounds engaging and impactful. At 32 ohms, the low-impedance K553 Pro pairs well with mobile devices and high-end desktop setups alike.

Treat Your Head and Ears

The K553 Pro’s over-ear design and soft, leatherette earpads ensure comfortable listening for hours on end, and the adjustable headband accommodates the biggest of heads with room to spare. The headphone folds completely flat for a relaxed fit around the neck and easily fits into a bag for those on the go. The 1/8” termination and included gracefully designed 1/4" adapter ensure the K553 plugs right into your existing equipment for immediate enjoyment.
