  • Summary: Ok, so I only spent 3 euros on these at a flea market. The catch was that the original stereo plug had been replaced and botched (all the cables were in the wrong place), so I had to re-solder them. After 10 minutes they were good as new(ish).
  • Pros: Price performance ratio,
  • Cons: Not as good as the older versions, needs good amping.

  • Summary: I got a free $75 giftcard for Walmart and decided to use it online to get the best headphones they have since there's nothing else I really want from Wally World. The best pair happened to be these K240s. The K240s are the type of headphones that really appreciate a good burn-in.
  • Pros: Great soundstage, price, and comfort. Rock rocks with these cans.
  • Cons: Elastic headband adjusters, pleather. Loves burn-in like a fat kid loves cake.

  • Summary: Having owned these headphones for roughly 6 months I must have accumulated over 1500 hours with the K240s on my head - that will give a hint of my opinion on them! Pros - Sound quality is a definite step up from most consumer headphones; after owning these I don't settle for anything less.
  • Pros: Clear Mids, Tangible Highs and Subtle Bass
  • Cons: You will start to hear the difference between MP3 and Flac.

  • Summary: Warm sound, good mid, great price Easy to drive compare with other studio headphone, there is shouldn't be too much complaint consider this headphone now only retail about $70 and sound really great.
  • Pros: Warm sound, good mid, cheap price at $70, easy to drive compare to others
  • Cons: bass is boomy, and slow, but still way better than Dr Dre's headphone.

  • Summary: A complete no brainer: if used at home probably the best headphone you can buy for this money, they fit comfortable and have excellent sound. There are better sounding headphones out there but you have to reach much deeper in your wallet. They are not suited for travelers in my opinion.
  • Pros: Perfect sound, nice fit, comfortable.
  • Cons: Not really a fashion item.

  • Summary: AKG K-240 Studio are at least the 4th (really 5th or 6th?) iteration of K-240 design, which started with the K-240 Sextett in the 1970s, themselves a circumaural version of supra K-140.
  • Pros: Custom-tailored frequency response contasts notes better, meaning, they're easier to play in. Which is why they're often used for playing synths. Also very useful for sniping dirt in samples and fine-tuning mixes.
  • Cons: Awful stock cable.

  • Summary: Эти наушники обладают ярко выраженным мониторным звучанием. Ведущую роль в нём играют средние частоты - красивые, «бархатные», хотя и не такие «правильные», как у AKG K271 Studio. У тех они чуть детальнее, более воздушны и лучше артикулированы.
