Product Description

The K240 Studio is a long-time studio standard. Its advanced Varimotion transducers provide wide range, detail, and much higher sensitivity than comparably priced headphones. The semi-open design delivers rock-solid low end and accurate imaging. The K 240 Studio is the standard for precision listening in the studio. For over twenty years, professional engineers and musicians have made the AKG K 240 studio headphones the best selling and most widely used headphones in large studios, sound stages, and orchestras around the world. Reliable, comfortable and true, the K 240 Studio headphones from AKG lend well to professional and project studios alike. So, how does AKG improve on a standard headphone? How about making it even more versatile! Giving the K 240 Studio a low impedance XXL transducer with patented AKG Varimotion technology, these headphones deliver a more accurate signal transfer and greater dynamic range than previously possible. Most importantly, the AKG K 240 Studio headphones play louder than ever before - on ANY system, including iPods and portable music players! The AKG K 240 Studio's plug-in cable boasts a mini XLR connector, letting you just replace the cable in the event of a disaster rather than purchasing a new set of AKG K 240 Studio headphones. The semi-open design gives you the airiness of an open headphone coupled with the solid bass response you get from closed headphone designs. The result: open balanced natural sound that delivers every time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Set of Headphones 28 May 2009
These are fine pair of headphones for anybody who intends to spend long periods of time wearing them. They are comfortable, self adjusting for the head, light and unobtrusive - I often forget that I'm wearing them.

The sound reproduction is excellent and probably the best you will get for their price point. The design is circumaural, though the cups being losely fitting mean you don't get perfect noise isolation.

The cable is detachable, so you can replace it if it snaps or frays. The two cables available (EK 300 which is straight, and EK 500 which is coiled) have a mini-XLR on one end can be found for under 20 pounds online (which is a better situation than previously). You can also buy mini-XLR plugs which can be soldered on to the end of ordinary TRS audio cables. The ear-pads are also replaceable, which is a good job as the faux leather ones always start to crack after so long.

The headphones themselves are very durable and withstand quite a lot of punishment. Having said this, I did have to solder a wire which worked lose inside one of the cups after a couple of years. However, these headphones are designed with this in mind and allow you to dismantle and repair them if need be.

5.0 out of 5 stars If it ain't broke, don't fix it 22 Oct 2011
By Mike
Verified Purchase
25 years ago I needed a pair of studio headphones, and after exploring all the music technology stores (no internet!) I bought a pair of AKG K240s. Not cheap, but worth every penny. I thought they would last for ever, but a few years ago my son started borrowing them for gaming, and as the crimps in the cable accumulated they eventually gave up. Unlike in the new version, the cable could not be replaced.

I assumed that technology would have moved on, so I tested some new makes and models at comparable prices, and was disappointed. They sounded good but were uncomfortable, or they sat nicely but the treble was harsh, the bass booming. Eventually I reverted back to the K240s, with their comparatively dull looks, and it was a revelation, like discovering the obvious all over again. So comfortable that you can wear them all day and fall asleep in them, bright high ends but not harsh, clear bass, and totally neutral - you hear the music the way it was recorded.

AKG have made a few subtle tweaks, but externally they are identical to my first pair - and 3 decades on they still set the standard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Akg K 240 wired headphone. 19 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase
A big boy in headphones. Good sound, good channel seperation, comfortable to wear. Flexible and yet very strong reliable construction. Very good value for the price I paid at Amazon UK. I am delighted to have acquired it and I hope others do too. The only shortcoming worth mentioning is it would have been nice to have had a tone control wheel. Nevertheless the sound quality is so good and clear that I hardly miss it.

5.0 out of 5 stars You can't do better at this price 23 April 2011
Verified Purchase
Excellent headphones. I can wear them for hours with little to no ear fatigue. And they are far more comfortable than they look. They could use a bit more separation and clarity but that's a minor quibble. You really can't beat the price on these if you're doing any audio work or even just listening to music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic sounding. 9 Dec 2013
By Diesel
Verified Purchase
These are great headphones, really solid and comfortable.
Unfortunately they are not really suitable for Ipods or the like as the power
of the Ipod limits their effectiveness. For listening through your laptop
or home computer though these cannot be beaten on price

5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite headphones 28 May 2013
Verified Purchase
I've used many headphones in the past, including for mixing and the K240s are definitely my favourite.

They have light, responsive low-impedance XXL transducers that deliver accurate, true-to-the-source reproduction of even very quiet signals. With AKG's patented Varimotion diaphragm, XXL transducers produce a flat, neutral frequency response from 15 to 25,000 Hz, revealing every nuance of your music. And because of the semi-open-back design, they provide less bleed and more acoustical isolation than typical high-end reference headphones, making them perfect for everything from tracking in the studio to casual listening to an MP3 player. The included adapter make K240 headphones compatible with standard 1/4" or 1/8" headphone jacks.

They are also lightweight with a springy headband that opens or closes wider for large heads and closes in for smaller ones automatically, without adjustment. A fully detachable, replaceable 10-foot cord means that if you've rolled over your headphone cable one too many times, there's no need to buy a whole new pair of K240s -- you can easily swap out the cable for a third of the price, should you ever need to. But as a studio commodity, K240 headphones are priced so everyone in the band can wear them. Where else can less than 100 buy such an essential critical-listening tool?
