There's a reason why you'll find these in 9 out of 10 Studios

By Mike Jones

from Salt Lake City, UT

Comments about AKG K240 MKii Studio Headphones:

Completely accurate; Flat; Lightweight; Replacable parts. I've had these for years and they still sound as good as when I got them. The leather Earpads like to split, but they're pretty cheap to replace. The semi-open design is great when you're working in the studio with multiple musicians and you need to talk to each other. Not so great if you're in public with a lot of noise, for that a closed ear design is better. Every studio I've been in has these headphones. You can't go wrong!

Most amazing headphones, PERIOD!

By Nick G

from Mesa, Arizona

Comments about AKG K240 MKii Studio Headphones:

As Mike said there is a reason that these headphones are used in recording studios. That reason is, because they are really lightweight, extremely durable, and overall just great. I have had these headphones and they were actually given to me by my dad bout 2-3 years back (all orignal parts btw) and they are still holding up just fine. Also, between your head and the foam piece, there is a gap that allows you to hear everything around you too. So, overall great headphones, and definitely worth the price (even though they were not that much when my dad bought them.)


Great set of cans! Must have.

    Comments about AKG K240 MKii Studio Headphones:

    I needed a new pair of headphones and was on a budget. I was looking at the Beyerdynamic DT770 that are in the same price range and was ultimately drawn to the velvet earpads. After additional research, recommendation after recommendation said to go with these instead. Little did I know that these came with replacement velvet earpads in the box so I pulled the trigger. Man was I glad I did. They sound amazing! Very open and airy sound, clear and flat (no added boost in any frequency range) that I could tell. They are also lightweight compared to the two pairs of Senheiser HD280 that I have finally replaced. I no longer have an isolated private studio so mixing on monitors late at night is not allowed with two young kids. I haven't mixed on these yet but I am so looking forward to it and the outcome.
