AKG K181 DJ review

  • Excerpt: These bad-ass DJ cans from AKG offer appeal far beyond the dancefloor, with a combination of awesome sonics, solid build and supreme comfort on the old lobes. What does that all add up to?
  • Pros: Somewhat of a relief after hours spent listening to cold, precise noise cancellers, these normally aspirated headphones sound better than the Sennheiser PXC 450, Bose QC3 and Creative Aurvana X-Fi, although they are less suited to long-haul flights. Designed for DJs, they give excellent results with dance music but also work a treat with rock and more bombastic classical. Even more acoustic-esque, strumming- and flautistry-based music sounds by no means bad thanks to ...
  • Cons: There are switches on the each ear marked “Large/small club”. They don’t appear to do anything, at least when not plugged into a nightspot’s sound system. You can also switch the ‘phones to mono which, again, is not the last word in usefulness.
