AKG K 240 Studio : moosers's user review
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.
