It’s Me Against the Music

At the age of 8, I asked Mummy if she could get me that big black shiny instrument that produces a melodious sound when I banged hard on the black and white keys.

At the age of 11, my primary school teacher, Mrs.Chng discovered that there was another musical instrumental embedded right in my throat. It was God-send from the Heavens. 
My musical journey started right there.
Singing and being on stage has really transformed me from this shy and timid girl who only stares at her toes in a lift with stranger to someone who doesn’t mind embarrassing herself in front of anyone.
I didn’t had a vocal trainer then. Instead, I had to rely solely on listening to songs sang by my all-time favourite singers such as Stefanie Sun, Jay Chou, Stevie Wonder and Craig David. Sometimes I wish I had a better mp3 player or headsets to fully immerse myself into the music without any noise or interruptions.
When I was much younger, I used to watch how Daddy creates a wonderful stereo sound experience by locking himself in an enclosed room and listens to Kenny G‘s music blasting from his loud speakers. He would jerk his knees to the rhythm as he lie comfortably on the couch with his eyes closed. I would sit beside him and cheekily imitate his knee-jerking actions.
But I guess I could achieve this personal audio experience with AKG headsets too. It acts like two big loud speakers attached to your ears. AKG headsets are widely used by music artistes such as Frank Sinatra, Quincy Jones and even Stevie Wonders! My favourite jazz musician!

I’m using the AKG K518 LE (Fuchsia).
An intimate sound experience.
Anywhere and anytime.
It’s just me against the music.

It comes with a carry case so that you stash this cool headsets into your bag.


The core of the headband is supported by the strip of metal which adds strength and sturdiness to the headset. This lightweight headset has soft ear pads to cushion your ears.It also has a secure fit but it might be too tight for some.

Nice comfy soft ear cups for your ears to rest on.

The isolating ear cups gives you that private music experience.

The AKG K518 headset, in my opinion, is suited for DJ or anyone who listens to techno,rap or rock songs as the headset produces a rich and deep bass. If you are listening to songs by Mariah Carey or Whitney Houston, the loud instrumentals or background music could overpower their soulful voices. For me, this is a great headset if you are working out in the gym or jogging in the park.
