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?

I'm using the K240 for two weeks now, and it made me realise that I have never listened to music before. :) It is amazingly comfortable and the sound quality is way above beats's (not that it's an achievement). I would recommend it warm heartedly to anyone.

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.

These are great headphones, it's just a shame that they do not isolate external sounds very well, but this is expected for semi-open cans. Do not get these to listen to music on your iPod on tube rides, portable devices usually are not powerful enought for these, but it's just because they are pretty good studio headphones.

My second pair. I used to like these, but after a lot of use they tend to fall apart. For amateurs these may be okay (if you look after them) but for professionals I suggest you look elsewhere. Nice cable length though, and a good jack.

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.

These headphones seem to be great so far, they have a clear and balanced frequency response and reasonable stereo separation. They fit very comfortably over the head, and the soft pads are nice and large so they completely cover the ears (my ears are pretty big!). Had a couple of long mixing sessions using these and they haven't yet caused any listening fatigue. A good buy.
