JimboSpins's review"Warm sounding"

AKG K 240 Studio
The AKG K 240 Studio headphones have been a part of my set up for 2 years now and they are still going strong. I have not had any problems with them from the day that I purchased them and they have been a joy to work with. They are jet black with a gold trim around the outside of the center part of the ear cup showing just enough gold color to accent the headphones. I have put these headphones on and had them on for over 2 hours before and never even wanted to take them off. They are very comfortable and can be adjusted to any size you need them. They come with a 10 foot cable and stereo adapter. They frequency range is 15 Hz to 25,000 Hz and have an impedance of 55 ohms. These are very affordable and worth the buy, you will get your money’s worth out of them within the first week of using them.
The sound quality is very clear, the highs have amazing clarity and the mids and lows are rich and warm. I have mixed many songs with these headphones and get some of my best work out of them. Before I purchased these I was using a pair of Shure headphones that were like these circumaural semi open headphones but they just were not comfortable enough for me to keep on for more than 30 minutes without them irritating me. Someone recommend that I try the AKG K 240’s and I have been using them every since. I do not use them as my main headphones but they are the top 3 that I use and I mainly take these with me the most when I travel. The warm sound and no coloration has me sold on these headphones and I will use them for years to come.

AKG K 240 Studio
AKG K240 Studio headphones, semi open back, detachable cord, very flat response. When I bought these I brought my ipod into Guitar Center. I sat down with 3 pair to pick out my favorite. Among these were Shure SRH44's, Sennheiser HD280s, Audio Technica ATH-M50's and a few others. Prices ranged from $100 to 200, open back to semi open to fully closed. On my ipod I have ranging from CCR all the way to Machine Head so I had a good variety to hear. I also had master tracks from MetallicA, Alice in Chains, and Randy Rhoads so I could hear how individual instruments sounded.
I chose these because the SRH's weren't very comfortable, had a lot of bass, and had a sort of compressed feel to them (they're fully closed back). The ATH-M50's had ice picky highs, weren't comfortable, and just didn't sound nearly as good. These are semi open back so they don't let as much noise in/out but there is still some bleed. They sound very natural, highs are smooth and don't hurt your ears at higher volumes. Bass wasn't overwhelming but even when turned up it didn't get farty. They are very comfortable. They sit around your ear instead of on them and have very little push against your head, the SRH's felt like a clamp. Basically everything sounded very balanced and what I'd imagine everything SHOULD sound like. Must be a reason most studios use these headphones.
Cool little things like the detachable cable are just a big plus. Overall these are great headphones. May not be the best when tracking because of the bleed but out of the ones I tried they had by far the best sound and were most comfortable which is ideal for mixing and just overall listening. For tracking I’d recommend a closed back headphone like the ATH’s or the SRH’s, but for mixing it’s all about open or semi open back.

AKG K 240 Studio
The AKG K 240 Studio's are a set of headphones that are indeed intended for use in the studio. I've owned a set of these headphones for years as my Dad has had them for a while and now I'm using them in my home studio. We used to use them for simple listening purposes, but I've found them to be further useful in my home studio for a variety of purposes, mostly for monitoring during recording. The headphones have a soft and sort of bouncy ear piece which is quite comfortable to wear, although I must say that the pair I own has quite a bit of wear and tear on them. The size of the headphones is adjustable, but it's not the best adjuster as it doesn't give you all that much flexibility. Beyond the feel and comfort of the headphones, the K 240 Studio's have a nice and full sound, with a decent amount of low end for a set of headphones. The sound isn't the best that I've heard from a set of headphones, but it's definitely accurate enough for monitoring during recording and simple listening applications. You can get a new set of these headphones for the reasonable price of $100 US dollars, and I'm pretty sure they're the same exact headphones that AKG has been making under this model name for years. I don't know exactly what year the model I have was made, but it's definitely an earlier version. I do prefer a number of different headphone models out there that are in this price range, like the Sennheiser HD 280, but it's all in the same vein and it's really just a matter of personal preference. If you're in the market for a set of high quality studio monitors, the AKG K 240 Studio's are a model you need to know about.
