Optimized for a fully immersive listening experience, the AKG K551 reference-class headphones use Real Image Engineering to create a highly realistic sound environment with a true sense of dimensional space. Two 1-31/32-inch (50-millimeter) drivers, the largest in the AKG product line, produce powerful, detailed sound from portable devices and home audio systems alike. The closed-back design of the K551 offers enhanced passive noise reduction and extremely low sound-leakage levels, while an in-line microphone lets you answer a call from your iPhone as easily as you listen to a song. With large ear cups and a lightweight headband, the stylish and portable K551 provides hours of comfortable, continuous listening and let you take AKG studio-quality sound with you wherever you go. And when you’re not using the headphones, a 2D-axis fold-flat mechanism makes them easy to store or transport. The classic, sophisticated design proves that this impressive headset isn’t engineered only for the ears. Your private, immersive sound environment awaits.
Powerful 1-31/32-inch (50-millimeter) drivers enable these reference-class headphones to do things that other headphones can only imagine. Music is rich and layered, while sound environments seemingly unfold before you no matter how loud you turn up the volume.
Real Image Engineering is the science that fits an actual soundstage inside the space between your ears and the K551. With Real Image Engineering, sounds are huge and accurate, with an incredibly realistic sense of width, distance and depth.
The K551 reference-class headset keeps music in and noise out. Its closed-back design helps prevent outside noise from entering your ears and minimizes sound leakage. So your music is yours and yours alone to enjoy anywhere you go.
The K551 headphones have an in-line microphone so that you can make calls that are every bit as crisp and noise-free as the music you listen to on your iPhone. The mic is ideal for FaceTime and Skype™ applications, and virtually any app requiring a microphone. The headphones’ three-button remote lets you control the playback functions and volume from iPhone and iPad devices, as well as Apple laptops and desktop computers.
