AKG K 240 MonitorPublished on 01/11/08 at 09:34
I've used these headphones for 2 years now, they are comfortable, good-looking and, more important than all, they DO sound really good. They helped me make better home studio mixes through revealing some frequencies that usually remained hidden with "usual" (non-professionnal) headphones or speakers. The impedance is very high (600 ohms) compared with most other headphones, so with the same settings the general volume will be lower on these ones than on most other headphones. They also tend to saturate early in the lower part of the sound spectrum (DeeJays, stay away! ;) ), which may help if you have a tendency to overload your mixes with low frequencies.

I've used these headphones for 2 years now, they are comfortable, good-looking and, more important than all, they DO sound really good.

Listening to (and rediscovering) some old records with them can be a real pleasure too...

It is a pity this model is no longer available (it was replaced by the K 240 Studio which has a lower impedance seems to favor low frequencies and thus shall be less trustworthy for mixing purpose).

I just raliser a comparative test with the Beyer DT 770 Pro and the Sony MDR 7000DJ.
Conditions have t ralises by listening to records and testing Syrius Das Microfon. Each headphone will then pass the "roping frquentielle" Pink Noise 1/3 October 20 20khz and frequencies sinusodales 20 20Khz still octave.

The 240m reveals a good balance across the spectrum of frequencies and good spacialisation. The balance, dynamics and timbre of the instruments are perfectly respects uncolored particulire. Not be very accurate surgical.

Very good monitoring headphones as the name suggests. Personally Impedance of 600ohms is not a handicap condition possder a linear amp with good power only...…
