  • Summary: This is an amazing headphone. It was made 25-30 years ago, and is still going strong. There are 2-3 diffrent versions of this headphone with diffrences in the bass/detail. The diffrent verions can be identified by the color of the cross-over circut board and the color of the passive elements in the...

  • Summary: It's time for another review that I've been sitting on for a while. Writing a review of a vintage headphone is difficult at the best of times, and there are some strange features of the AKG K340 that are even more difficult to deal with.
  • Pros: musical, fun, stunning treble, no fatigue, forgiving
  • Cons: Requires monster amp, not especially detailed, a bit slow, slightly muddy bass, each pair is a bit different.

  • Summary: I normally don't write long or extensive reviews, but this product has really exceeded my expectations! I recently bought a pair of NOS AKG K340 headphones from a Headfi member in Austria. Thanks JeckyllAndHyde!
  • Pros: [With screen mod]: Exceptional detail, open soundstage, excellent instrument separation, excellent dynamics, speaker-like sound, a pleasure to hear!
  • Cons: Sort of uncomfortable, bass weaker than I like, hard to drive properly, mids/bass slightly slower than the treble., slight incoherence of mids/highs.

  • Summary: I bought the AKG K340 Electrostat-Dynamic System twice. The first pair was very worn out and sounded weird so I sold them after a while. I bought the second pair from Ebay, and this one sounded very different. I used the first pair with the Beta 22 amp which really struggled to drive it properly.
  • Pros: Detail, Deep Soundstage, Smooth Highs, Clarity, Transparency, Excellent Instrument Seperation
  • Cons: Heavy, Difficult to Drive, Bass Not Very Detailed, Several Version Don't Sound the Same

  • Summary: When I first began my career, I was looking for some inexpensive but good quality headphones for my personal reference. The K340`s were less expensive than the cream of the crop at that time, the Staxx system with the discrete amp, etc.
  • Pros: Long life, used in both studio, live sound, and for fun
  • Cons: after buying them new in 1987, the foam is a little worn, wire tension on the pods is a little loose

Klang top, Verarbeitung flop

  • Summary: Klanglich gut, auch für Bassliebhaber. Der Preis ist für die Klangqualität sehr gut. Leider sind sie recht schnell auseinander gefallen, also nicht sehr stabil.
