Robust and comfortable

With the K-182, AKG gives headphone afficionados a closed-back circumaural model that will capably handle a wide range of applications. The housing is manufactured from robust plastic that will easily stand up to both studio and on-stage use, while the streamlined black design ensures a timeless look. The finely adjustable headband and generous amounts of padding provide a high level of wearing comfort, while the replaceable ear pads ensure that these headphones are in it for the long haul. The AKG K-182 comes complete with a detachable, straight 3m cable that has a 3.5mm mini-jack connector, and the scope of delivery additionally includes a 6.35mm jack adapter.

Powerful bass and crystal-clear treble

The AKG K-182 headphones are equipped with two dynamic 50mm drivers that provide a full sound with a powerful bass response, and their 32-ohm impedance means that they can be operated not only with studio gear but also with smart devices, which generally have less output power, and still achieve a respectable level of volume. The K-182's sensitivity of just 112dB SPL/V makes it a very loud model with plenty of punch, but that is not all: This model additionally covers an impressive frequency response of 10Hz to 28kHz, so the quality of the sound also leaves nothing to be desired.

For amateurs and professionals alike

The AKG K-182 headphones are an ideal choice for amateur musicians who want a reliable pair of headphones for recording and on-stage applications that won't make too big a dent in their budget, as well as for more advanced users looking to upgrade from a more basic model and achieve better monitoring results thanks to the K-182's wider frequency response. Professional producers in turn can keep multiple K-182s in their studio for musicians who come to record, and professional FOH sound engineers will benefit from the model's excellent isolation, which will allow them to cue, level, and pre-mix external channels without being disturbed by the sound coming from the room.

About AKG

AKG was founded in Vienna, in 1947, by Dr. Rudolf Goerike and Ernst Pless. After only a few months, the first AKG microphones were already being used for the first time in radio stations and theatres. AKG’s big breakthrough occurred during the early 1950s, due to specific and sophisticated innovations in their field. One example is the first large-diaphragm condenser microphone with remote-controlled, switchable polar pattern (D12) – the first client to acquire them was the BBC in London. AKG is today a world-renowned brand in many different fields. With countless high-class products in its range, such as the well-known C414, the name AKG has always been synonymous of quality and outstanding sound.

For the studio, stage, and DJ booth

As described above, the AKG K-182's excellent sound isolation eliminates cross-talk very effectively, making this model ideal for recording applications as well as for on-stage use. Even drummers with a more hard-hitting style who opt for the K-182 will be able to concentrate on the monitor sound without unwanted sound leakage, and the combination of a closed-back design and a high maximum SPL also makes this model a good choice for DJs. What is more, the K-182 weighs in at just 255g (without the cable attached), which means that whatever the application, it can be worn for extended periods without fatigue setting in, and the sophisticated folding mechanism greatly increases the headphones' portability.

Mighty Decent!
Edgar Blackdagger 09.11.2019
I think these are made as workhorse headphones,
they sound ok, they eliminate much of the outside noise, you can wear them for hours and if you break them to the point of no repair, well, it's 88€, you can buy another pair.

The low end is surprisingly deep and not compressed so I'm hearing things a lot clearer below 60Hz, the high end is also clear yet a bit harsh, but there is a lack of 80-200Hz and at the same time the sound is a bit boxy and hollow.

Good enough for the price, the pronounced high end helps most singers when tracking but the lack of body confuses vocalists like me that have deep voices.
Also as an engineer I can't make any proper EQ decisions with them because the mids are all over the place.

Good enough sound and isolation for tracking,
for mixing good enough for checking kick-bass relationship and offensive high frequencies, so I'd use them for edits before actually mixing and as another pair of headphones to check my final mix/mastering just in case.

Ticks all the boxes
Anonymous 27.09.2016
Bought these as a present for my son who wanted headphones which cut out the distraction of office chatter, allow him to listen to his music without distracting others, and comfortable to wear for long periods, and compact enough to be carried in his bag to work.
The AKG K-182 does all that. Sound isolation is impressive and the sound quality far, far in advance of anything else he has tried. They are comfortable enough for you almost forget you are wearing them, and the folding design aids portability. My son reports that the "headphones are wonderful, they block the sound of students talking perfectly", and that his colleague now wants a pair. They deliver excellent quality sound from his music stored on his Nexus6 smartphone. The only downside is that his (expensive) earbuds now sound terrible in comparison.
Delivery was prompt and the transaction up to Thomann's usual excellent standards

Rather short lifespan
Zucca 20.07.2020
Bought these in Feb 2019.
On Jul 2020 I noticed that the another ear padding has been torn apart from the seam. Looks like it was not stitched but glued.
Not good rating for life expectancy obviously.
The sound quality is good, flat. Isolation too. Very comfortable.
The miniXLR connector carries BOTH right and left signals, so it isn't wired as you might expect it to be.

I cannot fully recommend these for someone who uses them daily.
