How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

The claim that the AKG K550 are closed headphones that sound like open ones is right on the money. If wonderfully open and wide sound is among your top priorities, you won’t find a better closed pair at the price for the job.
