Sixty Years of Quality Sound, Sixty Years of AKG Expertise
For more than 60 years, AKG microphones and headsets have been synonymous with professional audio excellence. Since it was founded in 1947, AKG has been passionately delivering superior-sounding, cutting-edge products. Within months of the company’s founding, its microphones were being used by radio stations, theaters and jazz clubs. A mere two years later, AKG headphones were introduced to the marketplace.
AKG products quickly established a reputation for superior performance, and many musical artists started relying on them when it came to performing and recording. World-renowned artists used AKG products back in the 50s, while many of today’s most recognized artists swear by AKG products for live concerts and studio recording.
More than 60 years and 1500 patents later, AKG continues to create innovative and exceptional-sounding products for both professional and personal use. So it stands to reason that the Limited Edition AKG K 518 over-ear headphones deliver outstanding performance, unparalleled comfort and unmatched reliability.
