Summary: Best headphones I've ever purchased. I've been using them for years. The sound quality matches/exceeds (in my opinion) Dr Dre Beats, They don't have that god awful outside sound reduction that ruins the sound quality as well as a giant battery pack attached to the headphone cable.
Summary: As soon as I tried a pair of these on that a friend owned, I was sold. The quality of sound, bass, isolation, style, and feel of these headphones, for me makes them the best value for money out there. I used them for travelling and for whilst dj'ing.
Summary: Absolutely Wonderful Headphones, Beautiful Sound Quality, Brilliant Tolerance, And Surprisingly Resilient Considering They're Made Of Plastic, I Would Highly Recommend Buying These, Oh And Delivery Was Fast, Received Them Withing 2 Days, Standard Delivery.
Excerpt: 1 1/2 years of use, al listen seen immediately and the difference between akg headphones monster eg fidelity listening, power, versatility, depth, robust hardware. Unbeatable value for money (compared to Marshall, there's nothing to see! Sound is better in akg.
Summary: I bought the Sony MV55's and found them too fatiguing after 1 hour. These AKG 518 LE's however,I can keep on for hours. The bass is controlled,but ever present. After tweaking the treble up on my eq,the sound was simply amazing from such small on ear cans.
Summary: Great headphones for the price, I'm using them to listening music on the road. Sound isolation is good, and they are quite flat sound wise. They are even useful for checking mixes I do on adam a7x/beyer DT 990 combo in the 2000-3500 hz area.
Summary: Nice cans, strong bassy sound and pretty loud. Similar sounding to my Pioneer HDJ1000s, execpt not as detailed, midrange not quite as clear and not quite as loud. Still, very nice for the money. Not too keen on the long cable though.. (I ended up swapping them for the K518LE instead)
