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

Value for the price

Fantastic headphones for the price

 

I've had these headphones for just over 2 years and the notorious issue of the left ear not working had hit me. With $65 to repair them by sending them out to AKG, I decided to Google how to fix them. Quite an easy fix with some patience and a steady...

Sound quality, comfort, automatically adjusts to fit on your head snugly, long cable

Solder on wiring in left ear is notorious for coming apart

Great headphones

 

I'm very pleased with these headphones. Others I know in the music industry recommended them and they have turned out to be a good choice. I myself had been a professional musician and since retiring listen to mostly classical piano and symphonic...

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.
