Everybody´s darling

The AKG K240 MKII professional over-ear, semi-open headphones carry on the success of their predecessor—the AKG K240 Studio—and are a standard in studios, orchestras and on stages around the world. Their advanced 30 mm XXL transducers with patented Varimotion diaphragms deliver a wide dynamic range, increased sensitivity and high sound levels, while their semi-open design provides the airiness of open headphones with the powerful bass response of closed designs. With impressive accuracy, musicians, producers and engineers rely on the AKG K240 MKII to clearly hear mixing details, which has made these headphones a standard in recording settings. In addition to great sound quality, the headphones are extremely durable and comfortable. Not only built to withstand the demands of countless hours in the studio, their self-adjusting headband provides an ideal fit and their over-ear pads nicely envelop the ears. The AKG K240 MKII headphones also feature a professional mini XLR connector and come with a 3m (10ft) straight cable, 5m (16ft) coiled cable and convertible jack plug for connecting portable equipment easily. Altogether, from performance and ease of use to comfort and reliability, the AKG K240 MKII is a powerful tool for production environments.

That&rsquo;s not whar these are made for. These are great for monitoring, mixing, and even recording. Semi-open, so while they have some external sound bleed, they do not give you ear fatigue from hours of listening. These are durable, too. Probably because they&rsquo;re so lightweight. They certainly won&rsquo;t break under their own weight. These are the most comfortable headphones I&rsquo;ve ever had on for hours and hours. They come with 2 different types of ear pads and 2 different types of cables. Those should be the only parts you ever need to replace. I&rsquo;ve been using these every day for over 3 years and I&rsquo;m still on the original ear pads and cables that came with them. Be sure to buy from an authorized AKG dealer. I&rsquo;m seeing a lot of knock-offs being sold online!!</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2023-05-02</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2023-05-02" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="222611284"> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author" itemtype="https://schema.org/Person" itemscope><span itemprop="name">Gen X Drummer</span></span> from <span itemprop="name">Great features and value</span> <span itemprop="description">I&rsquo;ve had these on my wishlist for a long time.

I owned the original model way back in the 1980s and thought that the new MK-II model would be worth a try. Compared to what these replace, the bass seemed rather too full, but I listened to some old recordings by Grace Jones and Robert Palmer and Steely Dan, to be sure that all was okay. Very surprised and impressed with the level of accessories that these phones come with: Spare lead and ear cushions, along with the 1/4&quot; adapter. Also appreciate the light weight and the comfortable feel. An insignificant amount of acoustical leakage from the semi-closed design.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2022-02-12</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2022-02-12" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="214458969"> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author" itemtype="https://schema.org/Person" itemscope><span itemprop="name">TMThanh</span></span> from <span itemprop="name">5***** for this price</span> <span itemprop="description">I did burn-in for 20 hours before using this headphones for listening music, hearing foreign language. Pros: balanced, flat and no color sound. Mid sound is very clear (best for acoustic, live music and listening foreign language), high is comfortable, low is just enough. I can use for several hours without ear fatigue or feeling uncomfortable. Cons: It's better for being used as the studio monitor haedphones than for listening music but I can use it for both usage.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2022-01-28</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2022-01-28" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="214059274"> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author" itemtype="https://schema.org/Person" itemscope><span itemprop="name">sike</span></span> from <span itemprop="name">sound amazing</span> <span itemprop="description">bought this pair a while ago and the sound amazing for the price. if you are looking at buying a pair though, most things on this site is cheaper elsewhere. keep an eye for sales on here as well. also, the 55ohms run well plugged straight into my pc or phone!</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2022-01-15</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2022-01-15" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="213981296"> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author" itemtype="https://schema.org/Person" itemscope><span itemprop="name">Hifirookie</span></span> from <span itemprop="name">Very good flat and mid performance.</span> <span itemprop="description">I have ath mx50 and akg k240, both using for hifi music, especially from 70, 80, 90's lps.
