New K550 fan here! I really love the not so-bloated-bass from them, unlike other cans, for me the "stump" of the bass of this cans is enough. Also, love the soundstage. The first time I tried them on the store before buying, (after trying other headphones with the same price range), I was moved to a hypnotic state lol. Really love them for "live" recordings of Bossa Nova's and other accoustic songs. Appreciate them much, but a little not so much satisfied with the mids on some songs. But all-in-all the sound is really what I was looking for. If only they improved the punch of the mids though (Or does using other amp aside from my E12 can enhance them much more?).

I'm really loving them through my Note 3 e18 combo. These headphones grow on me all the time. The bass doesn't seem to be an issue for me anymore as I've become accustomed to more refined headphones. Looking forward to seeing how they sound through my Topping NX1 when it finally bloody arrives.

I use Ipod / Z + e12. The first time I listen to k550 is I knew the bass seems enough for me. :) Please share your experience with your upcoming amp!

Picked it up yesterday and for the cost the NX1 is an awesome amp. In my opinion it pairs very nicely with the AKG K550 as it matches their sound very closely (accurate and uncoloured). However, if you find thm lacking in bass a warmer amp like the fiio ell might be a better choice.

Curious- has anyone successfully modded any XB700 pads to fit the K550 yet? I have a spare pair I may try, I just need to get another K550 :p

 

They are so plush it seems like the could get a very good seal for people with smaller heads...
