  • Summary: Coming from Senn PX200, I expected better highs and better bass. I was drawn towards this AKG due to recommendations on this forum. Well, my experiences are less enthousiatic than those of most others. Audio quality is 'not bad' at best, but in general there's always a honky bass covering up the rest of the music. A lot of people here praised the bass qualities, but to me, it's not real bass, it's somewhat higher up the frequency scale. It's where it's starting to honk.
  • Pros: isolation, highs
  • Cons: everything else

  • Summary: Had it for about 2 years, can't really remember when exactly did I buy it. but this one gives me a lot of frission everytime I listen to music got me off the headphone market for about a year because of the satisfaction it's over ear, but just the right size for portability in my opinion
  • Pros: portable, foldable, comfort cushion, just the right size
  • Cons: frequent tangled wires, a bit too clamped

  • Summary: A few months ago, I got my 13 year old son the AKG K518 DJ LE, based on the listing of the K81 DJ on Innerfidelity's Wall of Fame. The sound was disappointing. Very heavy muddy bass that overwhelmed the mids. While OK for the price I got them at, this was not what I expected. Then yesterday, we decided to mod the headphones. The blue tack mod is a popular mod for the AKG K518 DJs.
  • Pros: Excellent bass response, wonderful mids and highs; very portable
  • Cons: need modding

  • Summary: Hello everyone ill try to keep banther to a minimum, but excuses in advance    I've purchased these cans about 2.5 years ago, to be exact the LE version in yellow with the short cable for 50euros. It comes with a pouch and small-to-big jack adapter. Ive made keywords Bold-Italic to be a bit easier for you to find them. Also if i say something totally inaccurate/stupid please forgive and disregard it.
  • Pros: Very good overall sound, excellent value, durable
  • Cons: Too much clamping force, cable tangling

" Not neutral, not detailed"

  • Excerpt: The other day I tried an Audio-Technica ATH-M50X. Not the same price, for sure, but the day and night in quality and comfort. It joins the AKG on the fact that also has good except in severe bump on the TA are more precise and controlled low in a useful ... word. The AT also has a pretty amazing detail. In short, if you are looking for n...
