Questioning if I even got real AKG headphones or if
on February 12, 2016
I bought these to replace a set of the early AKG Quincy Jones headphones, which are the best set of headphones I've ever owned. In every way, except durability, I leaned on them wrong & broke an earcup off. I bought these because the specs were similar, but the were about $30 cheaper. The really feel like knock offs, the build quality is inferior to the Q model's, for the first week, I really thought the sound quality was really, really, bad. I finally noticed that the headphone plug was bent, right out of the box. I may get the Q's fixed, but I don't think I'll be buying AKG's products anymore. The 518LE headphones were that bad.
