AKG K 518 LE review

 

MP3 players may be losing market share to music phones, but one thing is certain: portable audio isn't going anywhere. And to enjoy it to the fullest, you need some decent headphones. Of course, not everyone likes pushing earbuds into their ears, which...

The AKG K 518 LE headphones offer a stylish yet understated design, a secure fit, and balanced audio quality.

The AKG K 518 headphones are a good value for eclectic listeners who want a portable earphone that needn't be stuck into the ear.

AKG K 518 DJ

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...

These cost how much?

 

Ok i got these at my local best buy for $70. For $70 i am quite surprised. The bass is definitely emphasized and these are excellent for electronic music. The highs are recessed but smooth and the mids are also recessed. These are only first day...

bass, build, portability, smooth listening

highs and mids, uncomfortable
