  • 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 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
  • Cons: Comfort Bass can be too much sometimes

  • 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

  • Excerpt: 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!
  • Pros: Reliability

  • Excerpt: 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'm very pleased with these headphones. You get a very good stereo sound despite their small size and they're easy to transport because they fold.
