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: 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: 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.

Pros: Excellent bass response, wonderful mids and highs; very portable

Pros: Very good overall sound, excellent value, durable
Excerpt: I have a few years. It allowed me to wedge my vinyl at parties (small pals). To walk with my music without worrying if drops of water were damaging it, considering the price ... I love: - The price - Its comfort - It is not ugly I do not like: - Its too short cable - The sound...
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...
