 AKG K 518 LE headphones are a mid-range pair of around-the-ear headphones, inspired by the K 518 DJ model, but targeted more at typical consumers. One key feature is their folding design, which collapses enough to fit into most pockets. They have padded earcups that surround the ear and help filter out ambient noise, have a wide frequency response and have a fairly high sensitivity. The cones are protected by neodymium-iron magnets and the cord is long, at 1.1 metres. They include a jack adapter, and recommended use is with portable media players and computers. They are available in a range of color styles.
