  • 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! I have been using a borrowed HeadAmp GS-1 amp, until mine arrives from HeadAmp next month, a Harman/Kardon HK3490 receiver, and Marantz CD5003 and CD5001 cd player with them.
  • 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. The second pair I'm using with Headroom Ultra Micro Amp with Astrodyne PSU, and surprisingly it drives this pair with no problem, I hardly pass 10 o'clock of volume!
  • 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. Over the years I have had no problems with the jack shorting, cord fraying, plastic breaking, etc. They have always been reliable and within the factory specs.
  • 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

AKG K 340 Ohrhörer Kopfhörer

  • Summary: Wie die meisten Kopfhörer von AKG kommen auch die K340 sehr gut verpackt daher. Sie überzeugen im Test mit ihrem ausgewogenen und differenzierten Klangbild ebenso wie mit guter Räumlichkeit. Instrumente und Stimmen klingen natürlich ohne nervige Übertreibungen, auch wenn man sich etwas mehr Bass wünschen würde. Die AKG kommen selbst bei MP3-Playern mit schwachem Audioausgang gut zurecht.

  • Excerpt: Je l'ai depuis que je suis petit, il était à mon père. J'adore ce casque, une très grande musicalité! Un peu dur à alimenter sur certaine sources faiblardes mais quand il donne, la musique vie vraiment! Je l'ai récemment recabler avec des meilleurs cables et des soudure à l'argent, j'ai changé les pads également par des pad...

  • Summary: Довольно неплохие наушники. Сбалансированные низы и верхи, причём басы просто великолепны. Хорошо подойдут для прослушивания любой музыки. Сидят довольно удобно и не выпадают. Единственный не значительный минус - штекер (не "г" образный, а прямой на 2 см), хотя скорее всего это минус только для меня; ну и конечно цена)
  • Pros: Сбалансированный звук, шикарные басы, удобно сидят в ушах.
  • Cons: Цена и штекер.
