DJ’s and mobile entertainers who want to brighten up their act and add some color to their performance can do so – literally! – with the new Colored HP 550 Headphones from American Audio.  A great way to show your style onstage or in the DJ booth, these cool-looking headphones are available in 3 eye-popping colors: Lava (hot red), Lime (lime green) and Snow (bright white).

Best of all, and mobile entertainers can express themselves through color and stand out from the crowd without sacrificing sound quality.  The new colored HP 550 headphones are just like American Audio’s top-selling black HP 550 professional headphones, delivering the same stellar sound and features that have made the original phones so popular.

Like the original, the colored 550s include a high-power input (3,500mW) that’s ideal for monitoring high sound levels, and a hermetically sealed body which provides excellent sound insulation. The headphones also have a flexible, soft-touch housing that delivers maximum comfort and allows for both double and single ear monitoring. 

We’re really excited to introduce the color versions of our best-selling HP 550 headphones

“We’re really excited to introduce the color versions of our best-selling HP 550 headphones,” said Tom Freret, national sales manager for American Audio. “They not only look great, but they have all the fantastic sound and performance of the original all-black 550’s.  Plus, the price point makes them an outstanding value for any mobile DJ or professional entertainer, especially the budget-conscious or someone just starting out.  With the color 550’s there’s no need to sacrifice style or sound!”

To accommodate the variety of equipment used by DJ’s and mobile entertainers, the color-accented HP 550 headphones come with a standard mini plug as well as two additional 1/4” stereo adapters: a standard, straight adapter, and a right-angle adapter, both of which come with a locking nut which secures the connection and helps to prevent accidental unplugging while in use.  The partially coiled cord is a generous 14.5’ long, allowing for freedom of movement during performances. 

Also included is a storage bag, which not only protects the headphones during transport, but can also be used to keep the adapters with the headphones, for quick access. The 550’s are equipped with a universal joint, which allows them to fold for easy transport.

In addition to the above features, American Audio’s color-accented HP 550 headphones have the following specifications:

  • Driver unit: 57mm diameter dome
  • Impedance: 64Ω
  • Sensitivity: 107dB±3dB (S.P.L. at 1kHz)
  • Frequency response: 5Hz to 30kHz
  • Maximum power: 3500mW


MSRP is $69.95.
