songboy's review

I have been using the AKG K 240 mk ll's for 4 months. What I like most about these headphones is how great they sound. Its truly amazing. I also have a pair of Sony MDR-V700DJ which are also nice headphones, but in comparison, don't perform like the K 240's. The sony's can get muddy towards the bottom end where the akg's stay nice and crisp. Its never a good idea to mix solely with headphones but these guy's will let you do a decent amount of work and not have to tweak too much when listening back through monitors (a handy tool when on the go). The other great thing about these headphones is they are shipped with an extra set of ear pads (the pair that are already on are like a velour, the other is like a soft pleather) and an extra cord (one is a straight cable the other is a spiral cable like a old school phone cord). It is really nice to get these extra options, especially when paying upwards to $200 for a pair of headphones. The only thing I didn't like about these headphones was how "cheap they felt." I say this with some hesitation because at first, I was disappointed (even worried that I had gotten a cheap knock off because I got them off ebay) about how light and thin they felt when compared to the sony's. Its a big difference. But after plugging them in and hearing how great they sounded and using them for hours, I realized that the "lightness" makes them the most comfortable pair of headphones I have ever worn. One more thing I should mention that really pleased me was the ear cup room. Its like your ears are completely surrounded but no pressure is pushing against them. Thats a big bonus because after hours of use with every other headphones I have used, including the Sony's, the parts of my ear that stick out the farthest (the middle area) will get sore.
If you use headphones on a regular basis, you can't afford not to get these. $200 is a lot of money but these were worth every penny. Infact, you might find a pair new on ebay for much less. I got mine in a package deal that, had I payed the street price for the mic and preamp I got, these would have been free. ($500 for a ART Digital Mpa Gold, Shure Sm-57 and these headphones). Check Ebay.

I might even buy another pair down the road just in case.

Oliviercool's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Headphones sound a bit pinched"

Well, my Fostex will be difficult to replace, I feel ... That said, once used, it is not bad, this headphone. Waiting to get better at his level, he will do.

I bought this headphone hoping to replace my Fostex T20 RP with their pads are now really out of breath (early November 2014).

The ergonomics level, not see everyday headphones like this. A headband that automatically adapts system of "smooth" ear easy to maintain and in addition interchangeable (a spare pair even comes with) a detachable cable "right" to 3 meters connected via the headphone mini plug -XLR (a lifeline "telephone" 5 meter also comes with); I understand why they like on the radio ^^

This headphone is pretty solid at first sight. Above all, it is light, it is almost forgotten ^^

Sound "clip" a little, especially in the treble, but nothing serious, you get used to.

le reverend's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good quality and a good Q / P ratio"

I have for years, bought not too expensive new. A headphone that meets very well his contract, solid, which fits nicely in time, comfortable (important that), good sound quality (important too of course), practical with its cable that may change if, cheap, ... what more?
I can compare it with a Sennheiser HD250 linear 2 that I use on my hi-fi and I have used for (tens of) years, Sennheiser is better for my taste, but AKG is not behind, he holds the comparison very well.
A choice that I recommend for the type of user that I am: sensitive to sound quality, but not a purist, no mixing, real insulation.
For the price (it revolves around hundred euros if I remember correctly), if I lose I live redeemed.

I use this headset mainly to listen to the sound and music on my computer. I happen to also connect my Hi-fi, and also use it when I record parts of skyscrapers at night.
Semi-open headphones, but I find it actually closed or open, and that's fine with me. The build quality is exemplary, it is strong, lightweight and comfortable. It does not take the head in a vise (as opposed to a Sony but I always I stored furniture to stall, and yet it had cost me much pus expensive). The cable is strong, I had to drive dozens of times over my chair with casters, but it holds up well! And if the cable broke, well it turns, it is not life grand?
Practice too, jack choice: small or large jack adapter supplied. With that we are ready.

Solid headphone, well designed, comfortable. The cable is detachable. I have for years, it does not move, neither sounds nor held.

To listen to music on my computer, it's perfect. It seems that neutrality is not perfect, it was not me generations me, I do not mix, at least with this degree of finesse. I found a good reproduction of all frequencies, but perhaps I'm not demanding enough?
Insulation is good fucking, you'd almost closed headphones.

Reiep's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very comfortable headphones"

I needed a headphone to play the guitar at night without waking up the family and neighbors. My main criterion is comfort, I can not bear long headphones in general. This is what attracted me to the AKG, I can wear long without it bothers me. It comes with two different pads for comfort.
The build quality is very good, no worries in 4 years.
I could compare BeyerDynamic including DT880, which seemed more neutral and punchy as the AKG, but I preferred the comfort of the latter, because fortunately the game remains a minority headphone for me. In my opinion, this is indeed a headphone to avoid serious work in the studio.
That said, I've used a few times for very little work and, in particular taking into account the low surplus, it makes good service.
