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...

Wonderful headphones for a musician or sound engineer, and anyone who loves music.

 

AKG K-240 Studio are at least the 4th (really 5th or 6th?) iteration of K-240 design, which started with the K-240 Sextett in the 1970s, themselves a circumaural version of supra K-140. The basic idea behind the "Sextett" design is that the main...

Custom-tailored frequency response contasts notes better, meaning, they're easier to play in. Which is why they're often used for playing synths. Also very useful for sniping dirt in samples and fine-tuning mixes

Awful stock cable

Don't be quick to judge.

 

I got a free $75 giftcard for Walmart and decided to use it online to get the best headphones they have since there's nothing else I really want from Wally World. The best pair happened to be these K240s. The K240s are the type of headphones that...

AKG K-240 Studio vs. K-240 Monitor

 

The AKG K-240 Monitor is the classic studio monitor model, with an impedance of 600 Ohms (sensitivity 88 dB SPL/mW) and a dynamic range of 15-20000 Hz, according to AKG.

Lightweight, rugged, clear-sounding, 55-Ohm impedance compatible with portable players

Somewhat aggressive-sounding at times (curable with EQ), bass exaggeration (curable with
