    Bought to have as the go to headphones in my arsenal. Definitely a great product. Fits comfortable on my ears an don't fit too tight. They also look great. When running my music programs they do more than what I expected. If u do music, these a must have.

        Comments about AKG K553 PRO Closed-Back Studio Headphones:

        These seem very well put together. They look nice. Lots of actual metal parts. The hinges are smooth and solid. The cable is long and flexible without being spiraled.

        Comfort-wise, they're fine. I have a big head and they fit no problem. They only squeeze as much as they need to. The ear pads are incredibly soft and fit well, even wearing glasses. I may actually prefer them over the Beyerdynamic pads. Time will tell how they hold up. The headband presses down on my head though which bothers me, it doesn't spread out the weight over much surface area since the band is pretty much flat when worn.

        The sound is really nice. Very smooth (smoothest I've ever heard) texture, there's zero harshness, but they're still very detailed. It's hard to describe to be honest. It's just really pleasant across all genres. Bass isn't very strong, but fine.

        5/5 for the price. 4/5 without price as a factor. They could have a little more punch to them, and gone for function over form for the headband. Buy em.

          These headphones have a dynamic range of sonal response which allows the user to discriminate subtleties in recording.

            I got them because they were the Stupid Deal of the Day. I would not have paid full price.They are comfortable and light. But the bass from my cheap TASCAM is better. However, I will keep them. For the price they are okay.
