I really really wanted to get a pair of the Massdrop AKG K7XX's but living in a small studio apartment with my partner makes an open-back headphone not a viable option.. From all my review hunting and from talking to some self proclaimed "audiophiles" and "audio-enthusiasts" around the net, I think I've found the best possible closed-back headphone alternative. The AKG K553's are known to have a lush, full bodied, massive and immersive soundstage. I've seen several reviews calling this headphone the first "open closed-back" because of how similar it sounds to an open-back. I really hope this is a drop that becomes active soon! So if anybody out there is looking for an open-sounding headphone but needs the sound isolation of a closed-back this is probably the best option available so check it out and hit that "REQUEST" button =)
