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.
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.
Summary: I was glad to see my favorite pair of headphones shared with so many here. I bought these for a mixer board with my Hammond A100 and Mellotron recording work. Then later a large scale part 15 AM array and now with my Heathkit modified HW-7 QRP rig which is rated for 1000 OHMS.
Summary: These are excellent headphones, and they look and sound sound as good as the day I purchased them at least 20 years ago. They are lightweight, but durable, with excellent, natural sound reproduction. Nice tonal balance with no harsh high, nor booming low, frequencies.
Summary: The AKG K 240 MK II differs from the K 240 studio ( used in many recording studios) in two important ways:
Two cables are now included. One is the standard light weight cable, the other is a coiled cable. Headphone cables can break, now you already have a spare.
Summary: I have been running a project studio for around 5 years now. I didn't start out with the flashyest equipment, or with all the knoledge. Over time I have learned a lot, and upgraded my gear. My most recent upgrade is a pare of the AKG K240 series headphones.
Summary: After reading all the the glowing reports I wondered how any earphones could be all that great, but I went ahead and ordered the K240. I will now say that in over 72 years I have never heard such unbelievably beautiful audio come out of any receiver.
