AKG Acoustics K550 Closed-Back Reference Headphones – $211


J&R is offering these AKG Acoustics K550 Reference Headphones for $299.95.  If you use promo code AKGK550 it takes $89 off your price bringing it down to $210.95.  That’s the best price I could find for those headphones.


  • The Best of Both Worlds: Combines the advantages of closed-back headphones (no sound leakage for a truly private experience) with the open sound of open-backs (typical “speakers” sound) – making it ideal for both home and street use.
