Just as the AKG K 518s don’t skimp on style, they don’t skimp on performance, delivering high-output sound and excellent frequency response from virtually any portable device, including the iPhone. By using a closed-back design, sound-isolating ear cups and ambient noise attenuation, the K 518s block outside noise beautifully, so all that you hear is your music. Even quiet passages are clearly audible. High-performance drivers reproduce low frequencies down to 16 Hz and high frequencies out past 24 kHz with stunning detail. They’re also designed for high SPL, which--along with their wide dynamic range and sound isolation--makes them the perfect headphone upgrade for noisy-environment listening with nearly all of today’s audio devices.
You can use the K 518s with your home stereo, portable DVD, CD and MP3 players and many other audio/video players. With their slim, tapered connector, the K518s are compatible with all versions of the iPhone including first generation models. They’re an ideal upgrade to any portable device.
