  • Summary: The K240S is an odd beast. It's not hi-fi by any means. The bass is big, boomy, and not particularly well-extended. The highs are somewhat recessed and don't convey a whole lot of detail. The sound is akin to a fat black woman shaking her booty on the dance floor. Not a lot of refinement... But she sure knows how to have a good time. The midrange on this headphone is where it shines. It's agressive and gritty yet somehow sweet.

  • Summary: I found these to be very overrated. I bought them expecting to 'groove.' Well, it was like trying to groove in quicksand. The bass is overwhelming. It is not like the tight, punchy grado type. It is slow and bloated. They definately need an amp. When I tried it with only soundcard, they were even more muddy/boomy. With that said, I still recommend these because for the price, they are quite good. Also, the build quality is excellent.

Kommt an den jahrzehnte alten K140 nicht ran

Harald G., Amazon
10 April 2014
  • Summary: Gut 30 Jahre hat mein K140 beste Dienste geleistet, der linke Körer hat leider von jetzt auf hier (kein Kabelbruch, keine kaputte Lötstelle) den Geist aufgegeben. Habe mir jetzt den K240 zugelegt... na klar spielt er gut, ist ja auch von AKG, aber an den Wumms des alten 140ers kommt er nicht ran. Schade, ich mochte gerade die satten Bässe. Lag es vielleicht an den 600 Ohm?

Etwas enttäuschend

  • Summary: Bin etwas enttäuscht vom Klang, es fällt einfach der Bass. Verarbeitung und Materialien sind aber ohne Tadel! Würde das Produkt aber wohl nicht noch mal kaufen...

Leider unter den Erwartungen

Sven Be "Sven B", Amazon
14 December 2013
  • Summary: Gleich vorneweg, die Verarbeitung des Kopfhörers macht einen sehr soliden und hochwertigen Eindruck. Positiv anzumerken ist auch der mitgelieferte Adapter von 3,5 auf 6,5mm. Zuerst testete ich den Kopfhörer an meinem Sony Xperia T, sowie an meinem Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Tablet. Die Lautstärke war hier jedoch eindeutig zu leise, was einen Alltagsbetrieb an diesen Geräten von vorneherein ausschliesst.
