AKG K240 MKII Review

 

Over the years, different variants of the K240 have garnered a reputation of being the base-level standard when it comes to studio monitoring headphones. Budding audiophiles the world over take their first steps into serious listening with these...

Great performance across the spectrum, Semi-open (carves a good niche), Very light and comfortable

Build quality is a little questionable, Not the prettiest looking

AKG k240 Studio Semi-Open Headphones Reviewed

 

Every company seems to be making headphones these days, to varying degrees of success. However, AKG has been at the game for a long time and demonstrate their pedigree with the k240 Studio headphones reviewed here.

The k240's build quality is exceptional and its looks, while retro, should appeal to both young and old. AKG has saved the flashy color schemes for its Quincy Jones line (which shares a lot of similarities with the k240) , though for those who would...

I often criticize headphones for having too short a cable. In the instance of the k240, it may be too long. Thankfully, it doesn't become tangled and is robust enough that you can coil it easily, but for personal on-the-go use, it may be too much ;...

The AKG k240 Studio headphones are nothing if not phenomenal overachievers. They manage to be good in the studio, as well as in the home, and do so in a way that is effortless and refined. Their sound quality is sublime and, despite their pro audio...

AKG K240 MKII

 

Always listenable, but you can do much better at this money

Comfortable; spacious, even delivery; don?t leak as much as the fully open ?phones

Too soft to dig-up the finest details and dynamic nuances; needs a bit more punch

Accurate Reproduction, For all devices

 

This thing delivers very accurate sound, suits all types of music, does not have over powered bass, or overly saturated highs, its just perfect. Overall the sound is very clean and can be listened to hours without discomfort. Not the top of the line...

Very good, much better than Studio version

 

When I compare these to the newer Studio K240s, these win by a long shot. Not only in neutrality and detail, but in build design too. The Studios have a big mid bass hump that makes everything sound boomy. But the Monitor version has a very balanced...

Wonderful mids, comfortable, realistic sound, pretty good detail

rolled off bass, small soundstage, can be sibilant sometimes

Product Specifications

The K 240 Studio is an update of the "classic" AKG K 240 Monitor. The K 240 Studio delivers even wider dynamic range and higher sensitivity than its well-known and widely used predecessor. The secret to the semi-open K 240 Studio's sound quality is the new XXL transducers in acoustically tuned vented enclosures with circumaural (around the ear) pads. The circumaural pads envelope your ears nicely and reward you with smooth, solid bass and well-balanced, articulate mids and highs.
