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 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
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.
