~AKG K618DJ~ Discussion & Review Thread - Page 8

post #106 of 171
The 619 has added Microphone with Remote. Everything else is the same. Let me know if it sounds similar to the 167 if you get it.

K618 has much more bass than the K167.

K167 has much more detail than the K618.

 

In a way, I wish the massive amount of bass stayed on the K167, but eh no headphone is perfect.  It's like they do this on purpose haha.

According to miow the bass opens up some after a while, if you believe in that sort of thing. Other than that, is the signature similair?

I assume K167 is the better headphone overall?

post #111 of 171

Yeah, right now, the K167 is doing everything right.

There was just too much bass on the K618 for me since I listen to metal and electronic music mostly.  If I was listening to an entire electronic/rap album, sure it would be great, but I mostly listen to music on shuffle, and when a rock or metal song comes on, that kick drum was just too overpowering.

 All these threads asking about cheap bass headphones just need to look at the K618DJ.  I think I'm one of the few people on the forum that has had them.  Maybe they are just too new and people don't want to take chances. ;/  AKG really needs to advertise more.

Just looked at the AKG Facebook page and saw this poll.  Even their Coverpage is the K619, so at least people are starting to recognize it.
Looks like we are going to see an influx of K619 users, which is good for them, because I think it has the best bass quantity with decent detail at the price.  By the way, the difference from the K618 and K619 is just that the K619 comes with a built in mic and has an extra 1 meter extension cable for a little more ($99 vs 119).

The K618/9 vs XB500 comparisons should be starting soon.

Any difference between K518 and K618? more details & less boomy?

How about K67, only cosmetic difference than K618? Or also tuned for details & less boomy than K618?

On K518's bass bit too much on certain songs, but far better than XB500. it can tuned with EQ, still retains details & warmness.

For popular song where Beats selling so good, Lowest AKG/Tiesto will bring so much joy I think.

Haven't heard the K518, although I was about to buy them a long time ago.

Haven't heard the K67.  I'm interested on if they are the same or not too.

 

I think some may be more cautious when someones name is attached to a product.

 

For whatever reason, the Shure DJ headphones aren't popular.  They haven't made many, so that would make me think they don't have experience with those type of headphones and people stay away.  I was going to bite a while back when I was in impulse buy mode, but I read that the bass overpowers the vocals, so I don't want that.

Uhmmm , looking forward to AKG new line-ups then

post #117 of 171

Okay, I'm ready to buy again, but which one??

AKG K67 or K618?

Both are on ear and both are $99.

post #118 of 171

They seem very similar other than their earcup designs. They might even have identical drivers, but I don't know for sure.

post #119 of 171

Right now I'm kinda leaning towards the K67

This is the only review I found on the K67

post #120 of 171

Has anyone got an opinion on the K618/619 vs the K518 LE?
