Tough construction, intense sound - the AKG K518 are equally happy DJing or playing music on the go.

Closed-back design for intense sound

With its closed-back design, the AKG K518 keeps more of the music in and background noise out. This not only makes you more popular with fellow commuters but also gives a more intense music experience - you can hear every detail, without it leaking out of the headphones. Cutting back on background noise also means you don't have to listen loud to hear detail that would otherwise be drowned out.

High SPL for clarity at high levels without distortion
Designed for semi-pro or club use, the AKG K518 headphones are perfect for DJs. The closed-back design means you can monitor the mix precisely and with a high Sound Pressure Level (SPL) available, monitoring above the main mix is crisp and clear.

Unique 3D-axis design for portability
AKG's unique 3D-Axis folding mechanism lets the K518s fold flat for easy portability. Supplied with a carry pouch and ruggedly built, the K518's are the ideal headphones for life on the go.

Perfect for DJs but also ideal for music on the move, the AKG K518 headphones are flexible performers.

We'll happily come to you!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Harmann not AKG quality I got the AKG 518 in exchange for my trusty AKG 451s which developed a fault and are no longer supported. I thought the 518 would be the closest match in performance for the price, how wrong could I be. They are obviously built to a lesser standard than the 451s, looking plastic, not offering full adjustment. The sound quality is not a match for the 451s, these are muddled lacking in definition, but I was only going to use them for the gym, not serious listening so could live with that. Unfortunately because of the lack of adjustment trying to extend the ear cups to the maximum, the cup BROKE off. I was not exerting any real force, this is the 1st time I tried using them properly. The 451s lasted a couple years of daily commute abuse, these are a joke.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Value for Money I was looking for an inexpensive but decent quality set of headphones which I wouldn't mind letting the kids use, and for that purpose these are ideal. Great at keeping the background noise out which will be useful when using on a plane/train, but this means that they do press quite hard over your ears and therfore become a little uncomfortable after wearing them for just a short while. I do find the bass is a bit too heavy/fat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Headset for bed Comfortable effective headset to listen to radio in bed without keeping wife awake. Does exactly what I needed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent for price At £24 these are a pretty good purchase, the sound quality compares well with AKG phones still retailing at £50. However - curiously - the headband is tight for an adult male head, making them uncomfortable compared with other phones. Presumably this is why they have been discontinued.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very bass-heavy sound - to the detriment of treble and middle Bought to use with guitar amp for practice in house but have to adjust all tone controls due to the bass-heavy sound from these. Cannot wear for more than 5 minutes at a time because they are so tight! I have tried to stretch these as much as possible but they are still very tight - perfect for children!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very tight fit Excellent all round apart from fit, they are very tight and inflexible, I tried on two occasions to use them and each time session lasted 30 minutes. Hurt my ears. My grandaughter now has them.
