NORTHRIDGE, California – AKG by HARMAN is introducing the new K181 DJ UE reference class DJ headphones, developed based on input from professional DJs. The K181 DJ UE (Ultimate Edition) headphones are built for professional DJ use in any club environment.
The K181 DJ UE headphones feature a closed back design and a sturdy 50 mm transducer, delivering enough power to withstand even the strongest PA speakers, especially for pre-fader listening. For loud working conditions, the Bass Boost will help DJs better hear low frequencies, while the headphones’ coiled cable offers freedom to move without stepping on a cable.

We feel the K181 DJ UE headphones fulfill these requirements and more!”
