Comments about AKG K240 Studio Headphones:

I use the K240's as a monitor during live performances and even practice. the don't isolate you from anything important, like the rest of you're group, and get a quality sound that you need to you're ears. The only thing I don't like is that there's no volume control on the headphones

Comments about AKG K240 Studio Headphones:

I use the K240's as monitors during live performances and even practice. they don't isolate you from anything important being partial open back, and give you what you need in your ear at the same time, and are comfortable to wear for long periods of time. So far I have no complaints about this product at all

This item was purchased for my son (home studio) who was tired of wearing out cheapie headphones from a department store. Haven't tried them a long time, but the sound is great and they seem very well constructed. Price was good.

      Comments about AKG K240 Studio Headphones:

      I bought my first pair in the 90's and used them up to last year and now i have the next generation and it's like not missing a beat.These feel and sound like my older pair so i don't even notice that they are a new pair.I like the semi open sound my ears don't get worn out like they do with closed in headphones.I mixed 6 CD's with the old k240's and hope to mix many more with these.

      Can't be beat for the Price.

      By Todd

      Comments about K240 Studio Headphones:

      Bought these to use in critical listening when producing the mix/mastering. I have to say after tons on online research and youtube videos I decided to go ahead and buy these. For the money you can't find much better. Extremely flat response with no real coloration of the music material. If you are going to headphones to help reproduce music these are the ones. What you hear in the phones will translate very well to the monitors. Really good soundstage. Obviously they are semi-closed phones so you will hear background noises through the phones. So make sure you have that in mind when buying. But overall these are excellent mixing/mastering phones for the price. Good bottom, great mid and high.

        Comments about AKG K240 Studio Headphones:

        I reviewed these headphones and they definitely seemed like the ones for me. When I got them I realized the error in my ways. I use electronic drums and if I'm monitoring with these headphones while drumming, I'm hearing the loud slap of my drumstick hitting the rubber pad. Fortunately I have Vic Firth closed headphones to use when I record my drum track and then use the open air phones for my mixes. I like the fact that I can communicate with my other band member with these headphones. Comfortable and highly recommended.

          Comments about AKG K240 Studio Headphones:

          If you are looking for headphones that produce an accurate sound, this is the set for you. They also have a great sense of space to the sound.

          These headphones are the over the ear type which means they completely cover you ears. This is nice because they immerse you in the sound. The K240's do this without making your ears sweat. They seem to breath well.

          They give a well rounded sound. Great for listening to music they it was mixed. If you are looking for a set of head phones that enhance or are bass heavy then these are not for you. However, I'm not saying they lack bass either. They just produce it the way it was recorded. If the song is bass heavy these headphones will play have no problem producing the deep bass sounds.

          I have been throughly impressed with my K240's.

            There is a reason why these headphones have been around for so long and used in professional studios - They dont lie when it comes to sound. They don't enhance or detract from the sound. Just a flat response every time. You wont find Beats headphones lying around the mixing console in professional studios but you will with the K240's. Serious sound guys wont mess with junk headphones or eye candy because they look cool when wearing them. If you cant handle the truth get headphones like Beats! If you want the truth then get these!
