You should offer the K553 MKII
Jun 2, 2018
Has anybody compared the K553 with the original K550 mkii model? I have the later but my cord is starting to get crimped and cuts out often. Really like the signature sound of my K550. I've also found a K550 Mkiii which has a detectable cable but I heard they don't sound quite as nice as the Mkiii. Looking for options and opinions. Thanks

Any chance of getting these to drop again? Maybe the updated MKII model?

Just swapped out the hybrid pads from my fostex massdrop txos to my AKG553 s they fit really good and I like them so far and nice change with a increase in the low end. The txos got a pair of brainwavz angled PU leather pads and they worked out really well and hey improvement with the sound separation and low and.

How do I use the warranty that these come with? The 3.5" jack is really glitchy and has to be at a certain angle to work and I want to send it in

After two years of usage, the earmuffs have chaffed and torn in multiple places, leaving my ears with black pieces each time i'm wearing them. I turned to AKG manufacturer and they told me to turn to the importer in Israel (where i live). I talked to the importer and they said they don't have replacement for AKG K553 pro studio headphones because they aren't importing it to Israel. My question is, if i purchased it on massdrop, who can supply replacement parts? because right now i have a $250 paperweight and no one takes responsibility. I couldn't find even generic replacement muffs because i can't find the correct size, and the original muffs are HUGE. Another problem is that AKG doesn't even mention the size of these on the box, and it's proven to be impossible to find specs online that do. I would appreciate any kind of lead on this issue, many thanks!

Hey Mylan, I grabbed something off of Ebay and hoped for the best, it worked :) https://www.ebay.com/itm/Replacement-PU-Leather-Earpads-Ear-Pad-Cushions-For-AKG-K550-K551-K553-Headphone-/271851799467?hash=item3f4ba143ab
Best of luck!

I've bought a pair of those off Amazon and makes the headphones sound very "hollow." The sound quality changes quite a bit since the inner wall of the pads are thicker than the OEMs, not to mention the material used (I have the White pads). However, the height is just about the same as the OEMs.

Does anyone have a feel for if or when this drop will come back? Are these available every few weeks? If these are bound to come back in the near future, I'll wait, otherwise I'll look for them elsewhere. Thanks
