  • Summary: Trying to find decent headphones, which fit a certain receiver can be challenging .The K3 sounds good if you tailor the EQ, find the right AGC settings for the given situation/band and back down the RF-gain.I´ve tried several headphones for my radios.So I´ve got a favourite headphone for each of them.I got the AKG 240 MK I on the used market.They were built in Austria, and they are my favourite phones for CW.They sound great, reducing the hiss and they are comfortable,...

Very Nice

  • Summary: These are considered the studio standard in circumaural open back headphones for good reason. The sound reproduction is excellent, with clear bass and midrange and a very balanced profile through the entire frequency spectrum. Got to be the most comfortable headset ever, and you can wear them for hours.

Solid, reliable with great sound

  • Excerpt: We use these in a live PA environment at front of house for the audio engineer to use to do a quick PFL of channels. Gives us a very accurate monitor to listen to the nuances of what is coming into the console.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Lightweight

  • Excerpt: These sound very natural with not much "colour" added. Very very comfortable to wear. I also use Sony HD7509 but now tend to use these as I like the sound and comfort better. Use these for critical Protools editing of videos.

Fragile and weak

rageface, B&H Photo
6 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Sound quality decent, but not impressive. I have a cheaper headset with better sound quality. Used for 8 months in office until the tab over the right can fell off. When it did, the can came loose from the headband and there are two very thin and fragile wires connecting to the can. Those broke immediately. I failed at soldering them back on and just threw the set away. This is enough for me to not purchase another AKG product again.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Breaks Easily, Poor Sound Quality, Pricey / Poor Value, Unreliable

"The Best headphones for anything...studio...audiophiles...home users...outdoor use"

By a customer from gmail.com, zzounds.com
2 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Simply excellent. Wide soundstage, not that much as K702, but great. Trebles are little higher, but nothing disturbing. Bass is fine, even in subsonic level and middles are well-blended between these.

Very well made,Great for many

  • Summary: Speakers and Headphones are as most know a judgement call. some love them others would not even try them. The AKG 240 is very well constructed. Impressive! However for my very good hearing not my pick. Not that they are bad just that others work better for me. The MDR-V150 @ $14 on the web was outstanding in the 160 CW contest with the IC-7800. You must learn to wear them over and above the ear like Military style to balance tonal levels.
