They’re one of the very best at making high-quality, time-tested headphones that offer features and sounds that would typically cost you quite a bit more. And we found a best by $40 price (most are selling for them for at least $75 more than this) on a pair that will have you feeling goosebumps and dancing in your pjs while you enjoy some serious listening time.
Ending on 9/14, Amazon is offering the AKG Reference Class K551 Closed-Back Headset in Silver/Black for just $149.99 with free shipping included. We’ve never seen this very nice headset at this low a price in any color.
The K551 is a “headset” as much as it is a very good “headphone.” You get exceptional sound and power thanks to 2 inch, 50mm drivers that pump out clean sound with no distortion even at high volumes. A big soundstage is produced by their “Real Image Engineering” so you don’t get that tiny sound you hear from other sets. We love closed back headphones, and this one keeps noise out and sound in as well as just about any other in it’s class. Of course, it’s a headset because of the in line microphone so that you can use all of the ability to produce sound to make and hear phone calls without guessing what the other person might be saying. Finally, it folds flat for portability and ease of storage. At this price, that’s a lot of goodness!
