By AKS1

Comments about AKG K553 PRO Closed-Back Studio Headphones:

it is really a great headphone with good sound stage. This headphone definitely NOT for BASS heads,,! This is for audiophiles who need great sound without any artificial ingredients.

    Comments about AKG K553 PRO Closed-Back Studio Headphones:

    For critical listening and accuracy (for mixing and mastering music), these are my go to phones now. Give it some "break in" time (40-60 ours) and they'll sound better and better.

    Comments about AKG K553 PRO Closed-Back Studio Headphones:

    I have been using the K553 for over a year now. I admit the bass issue will grow on you. You need about 60 hours of burn in time for the full sound value. Well worth the wait.
    I own many top quality headsets and these stand with any of them.
