  • Summary: Like many others, it seems, these are my first pair of good headphones. Going into my audio engineering college program, I needed a pair of headphones and these were one of the ones they recommended. They looked amazing, and were guaranteed to be the best pair of headphones I'd heard, so I got them!
  • Pros: comfort, soundstage, mids, highs
  • Cons: needs amp to be driven well

  • Summary: Still use it as my main pair, currently trying to find a replacement. But totally happy with my choice. Generally the treble is lacking and it was overall the audio quality was a downgrade from my previous set of cans which was the Grado SR80i but the high level of comfort totally won me over.
  • Pros: Comfortable
  • Cons: For the price I paid, audio quality can be better

  • Summary: Some of the cleanest mids you'll get for the price point. Possibly the perfect entry-level cans for music lovers who want a neutral sound signature. Bear in mind that most AKG cans are not bass-centric. For bassheads, the K240s may turn you off.
  • Pros: Clear mids and highs, a comfortable over ear design
  • Cons: Lows and highs become overshadowed by supremely clean mids.

  • Summary: I am new to higher end headphones, so I might not know all the correct wording, but I will do my best. Before I got these AKG's, my headphones where a set of Bose Tri-Ports, a old set of Realistic on ear phones made by Koss, and a inear set of Pure Sound 8mm's. These AKG's are fantastic.
  • Pros: Great sound, clear mids, nice highs, and perfect lows. Very comfortable.
  • Cons: With velour pads a little shallow. but I found a fix.

  • Summary: I love these headphones. I have been using little earbuds for a while, and they have been quite good, for earbuds, but I decided that I needed better headphones for both listening to music and operating the soundboard at my school.
  • Pros: Amazing quality of bass, mids, and upper ranges, very comfortable, great depth of sound, no blurring of audio, no "in-head" feel, light, feels durable
  • Cons: cord is very long, burn-in takes a little while, EDIT: great difficulty changing cords FURTHER EDIT: difficulty individual and unlikely, due to defect

  • Summary: I'm professional musician and I bought it for my home studio. I own also Sennheiser HD 449. From my perspective It might be difficult to mix and master on these AKG if you are not used to them because they are heavy on bass and middles, sound is not balanced.
  • Pros: Details, Loud, good bass and mids
  • Cons: Not suitable for mix and master
