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.
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
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
Summary: Hello i have some AKG K518 DJ's with maybe 40 hours on them and have decided to review them. The only other cans i have to compare them to are the Panasonic RP-HTX7.
Box: the AKG's have a very nice looking box, quite simple but attractive.
Build quality: they feel very solid, the only weaks points would be the cable and the swivel joints i think.
Pros: Great sound Size Price Portability Build quality Looks Islation
Summary: I bought the AKG K528 headphones nearly 2 weeks ago via amazon. I had to pay circa 50 pounds. They arrived after two days and I instantly tested them. Comfort: The AKG Headphones are really easy to adjust in size so it fits quite exact to my head. They are very tight but still very comfortable. Sound: The headphones absorb the environmental sounds really good, so you can just enjoy the music. And the sound quality is just genius!
Summary: THE AKG K518 headphones are AMAZING. Everybody is always asking for better quality and better volume, however I truly believe that these have mastered both. Usually, Either volume or quality is compromised in order to improve the other characteristic. However here AKG have combined crystal clear bass treble and middle tones with superb volume. Confort the AKG K518 fit your head like hand and glove.
Summary: I am performing fewer and fewer live sets now, so my DJ is almost completely restricted to the bedroom. Essential for any DJ is a good set of headphones, which these have proved to be. I have owned them for about six months and manged to buy them for the bargain price of £25.99, online, from Hard To Find Records. The first thing to note about these headphones is that they are quite comfortable to wear. An essential trait for any headphones.
Pros: Sound quality, good value
Cons: Comfortable after about two hours of wearing
