  • Excerpt: These headphones are great! They give a very true sound providing accurate feedback and response from your audio source. At this price point they cannot be beat! I use them for mixing & mastering as I cannot yet afford a decent set of Monitors and for the time being they have greatly improved my mixing. I hear nuances in my own music that I simply could not hear with other headphones or speakers.
  • Pros: Affordable, Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile

Great Value!

  • Summary: I need another general purpose mic for vocals and with the fake 58's around didn't want to risk an on line purchase. The AKG D5 proved to be an excellent choice and I couldn't be happier. We have a nice selection of mics here but for the price I seem to be using this one more and more and have already bought a couple of them. As good as or better sounding than the Shure standards or e835.

Solid live vocal mic

  • Summary: I was shopping at a national retail music store, planning to pick up several Shure SM58 mics. The sales associate recommended I give the AKG D5 a try instead, due to its sound quality and high gain before feedback characteristics (a specific monitor problem I was trying to address). I reluctantly picked up 5 D5s and put them through their paces during a series of live outdoor summer concerts in and around Nashville. I must say that I quite pleased with the results.

AKG's Are the Best for Radio Work

  • Excerpt: I've been using AKG's for years and every time I try another brand I always come back to AKG. The K240 ones are good, comfortable and easy to use. Only thing missing is the coiled cable which I think is more comfortable than the regular one. So I spent $ 29.95 more to order the coiled cable. I believe the AKG K240 MKII are good but also more expensive.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Lightweight

  • 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. I see it almost as a test of worthiness.   Previously I wasn't the type to do burn-in as my Sennys didn't really benefit from it and it always seemed like superstition anyway.
  • 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.

Tradition Continues

  • Summary: I have had a pair of 240's since the early eighties and never failed to appreciate their overall "rightness" when it comes to critical listening. When it came time to replace them I tried other phones, knowing that the world changed in the last 25 years, but in the end, the 240's still won in my book. By that I mean they are comfortable for long periods of time, well isolated, sonically neutral, and spacious sounding.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Sonically neutral, Versatile
  • Cons: Big by current standards

  • Summary: The look and the build quality of these headphones are great. They have good bass and are easy to drive. Lacking a little in the mids but nothing like the tri-ports.

  • Summary: These headphones are great for home use and while they improve with amplification, they dont need it. At their price point they are a great place to start and you can built a very good hi-fi system around them. They are very similar in sonic character to the AKG K271 Studio [see my review of them here]. The only differences would be that the K240S has more bass and the K271S is more refined overall. The K271S is also a closed headphone and as such it provides isolation.

It's sad to see these things go.

  • Summary: These headphones are the most comfortable and best sounding for the price. As a graduate student I find these two things are huge factors in my purchases. I am sorry to see that AKG has discontinued them and revamped their entire line. I just feel lucky to have gotten these when I did.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Comfortable, Easy To Use, Powerful, Professional Functions, Versatile
