AKG K 240 Monitor
I work with depuid over twenty years.

I continurais to work with the next twenty years ...
Comfortable, lightweight, robust, exellent rendition of the sound spectrum and not destructive to the ears.

For the DJ who is looking for Db and the sound pressure is not for you, for those who want to keep intact their ears and who understand that it is not good for the quality and precision of restitution to be an avalanche of Db is the ideal.

A real headphone monitor what, what about other quality / price copy.
This is not a DJ headphones, but headphones work and precision

AKG K 240 Monitor
for me it's been 22 years since I bought this headset, as another member I bought much more expensive at the time about 700 -800 francs but it is true that the Internet did not exist. It remains to this day my favorite headphones. Listen and excellent sound, lightness, weight, and also its strength. I bought one from beyerdynamic rt 431 (which does not happen at the ankle) while the purchase price was higher, and a sennheiser rs 130 wireless but saturates as soon as you push too much the amp. The only downside of the AKG I had to change the foam inserts 7 years ago due to wear and time, but my uncle and my father have an AKG 242 Jamis have had this concern.
In short a date, despite the years it remains one of the best choices for buying a headphone and its price has dropped! So please .... buy

I possde including this headphone for a good fifteen years. In DPIT its light weight, which is an advantage, but we will-is solid.
The board to make a loop with the cable should be a board for all headphones, this trick many dconvenues quickly.

I do not return here on intrinsques quality of this product, they have t nonces and I share. I draw attention only INTERPRETATION for a little "nervous" in their styles, nothing pjoratif; Brel-looking, so I draw attention to the fact that lightweight helping, you can make a quarter turn on you even while the headphone, he, will not move ... Gnant.
Angus Young Style, forget or reinforced by dozens of elastic: if not the first time the first riff, the headphone will be on the floor.

I should note 8, silent also quite expensive the era o I bought.
Actualis 9 does not seem to be usurping a note.

Warning: semi-open headphones. I would add again "3 / 4 fermquot, if there was ...

AKG K 240 Monitor
Here is my opinion on the headphones AKG K240 Monitor version:

- How long have you use it?
I use it for fifteen years, he does my first stereo headphones.
- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
It possde many qualities:
THE FIRST is the price quality ratio, as it can be found in nine out of 75 E bay. I think it's the best quality price in this price range.
Then it is a headphone called "groove", the privilgiant mdiums on the bass and treble, which makes it enjoyable for the trs cost of the rock, pop or the 'electro.
Trs is lenient with the source: you can Listen to CD quality medium and to enjoy it without hearing all the default of the same CD.
Finally, it is a sturdy headphone trs since followed me for 15 years without problem (I have just replace the jack), and yet I did not specially care, including Premire year!

He still few default:
Premire, comfort is not exceptional. He tends "Heat" just the ears. We must therefore remove it from time to time to the s'arer dernires.
Then it's a headphone that takes a lot of power: not going to use a portable CD or connected directly to a sound card. It is 600 Ohm, and push it, it must necessarily possder a headphone amp at best, see a traditional amp possdant a headphone output. (See the limit of a CD deck lounge).
Finally the default, it is my opinion not for classical music. it is not sharp enough in the bass and treble for this style of music (even if your exact is not bad)

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
Even if he does my first hi fi headphones, I now possde two other models:
a Sennheiser HD 650 (much more) and a Sennheiser HD 570 (same price level).
Even if the AKG does not compare to the Senn HD 650 (fortunately addition, the report price is four-fold), I use it more often than my HD 570. I would say that my AKG is for all music except classical, and my HD 570 blends better with classical music.

- How do you report qualitprix?
As explained above, I think it's the best headphones in the range less than 100. It is sturdy and gives a deep and mlodieuse music.

- With the exprience, you do again this choice?
Even if I use less (because Senn HD650), I love my AKG!
I am an addict of music, and it allowed me to listen normment of musical styles for many years. J'espre it will give me much pleasure, and that's all you can ask for a headset, not ?????

Note: The grading is not comparative, but given the relative price range.

- How long have you use it?
6 months

- What is so special that you like most and least?
+ Comfort, isolation, overall quality of its

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
no, I jumped at the chance: a stereo shop that get rid of his "old" stock headphones. I paid 5 euros! at that price, you suspect that even in the buying blind, I got a good deal (it will, moreover, that I return to this store to buy another headset if any remain, but not 600 ohms.).

- How would you rate the quality / price?
Say I have 5 euros for my money!

- With experience, you do again this choice?
Probably not, but not disappointed by the product. In fact, I bought it without paying attention to its impedance. Use it mainly to play virtual instruments without disturbing the neighbors, 600 ohms is too much. I have almost always put the volume of my old Yamaha UW10 thoroughly to hear something (and this is sometimes not enough). So I'll return to that store to see if they have the same (or another at 5 euros) with an impedance much lower!

Neutrality, isolation, surgical, his personality (monitor? Not really) and robustness.
After 20 years, we can not remember the sound of other
Price / quality?
I paid a heavy price in relation to my income at the time and I wanted to isolation and Quality. I got what I wanted, I use less now but at one time, I had several hours a day on the ears. I 'have always connected behind the blocks, 600 ohms, I like it pretty well.
Yes I would buy easily seen that the current price seems ridiculous given the quality (would still have to see if the current is known as a reflection of that of the time)

After 20 years of use, or are the problems / benefits??

Clearly, it is the progressive oxidation of multi-strand copper which create problems of false contacts. Cut the line / change the plug (not troubleshoot or fiddle).

If you just buy it, make a very nasty loop the cable around the headband, making sure that the headband to the base is flexible and relaxed. It améliorerant life every few years.

AKG K 240 Monitor
I bought this headphone a few days ago, and to be honest, I did dj more ...

I was looking for a lightweight headphone with his trs equilibrated round and warm, without the claret ngliger treble and brilliance.
In short, I have not found what I was looking in the headphone.
Indeed, the sound is clear and certainly does not attack trs ears, but I find it poor in acute and severe infra.
The bottom is a supper mdium forward compared to the rest of the spectrum.
So the sound of this headset was a bit of. I expected a much better quality for a brand like AKG and a headphone of this price range.

As for the lgret is the top. It is trslger and comfortable, because sometimes we forget a headphone over the ears.

A little thing dernire Dermine before, I find that this impdance headphone is much too high.
600 ohms is too much, and you have a table with a headphone super tough to be able to make it sound. Unless you work with a sound level low.
Which in a sense is not so bad for the ears ...
