Excerpt: Over the years, different variants of the K240 have garnered a reputation of being the base-level standard when it comes to studio monitoring headphones. Budding audiophiles the world over take their first steps into serious listening with these headphones, and for good reason. Find out why.
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!
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.
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: It is my first pair of good quality headphone, it just turns me in to an audiophile within weeks.
The headphone is very comfortable, it comes with a 3.5mm to 6.2mm adapter, two sets of earpads, straight cable and coil cables.
Pros: Great sound, clear mids and highs, very comfortable headband,
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.
Summary: These were my first pair of quality headphones. and overall, I find them to be very good.
They are very comfortable, and they come with 2 different set of earpads, pleather and fabric. It also comes with a coiled cord along with a straight cord, which allows for flexibilty in different situations.
Pros: Good mid-high range, stylish AKG look, comfortable, many accesories.
Cons: The cups might be too shallow for some, otherwise i have no complaints .
Summary: After getting a FiiO e10, to bypass the crappy onboard sound on my computer, I was looking for some headphones to replace my Sennheiser HD485's and to kind of justify the purchase of the DAC/amp.
Pros: Comfort; Midrange; Clean strong bass; Non fatiguing sound
