AKG K240 Features…
The AKG K240 Semi Open Studio Headphones are at AKG’s entry level for their line of studio cans. They are very light at only 8.5 ounces meaning that they can be worn for very long periods of time with very little discomfort to the neck or back. The headphones also have a self adjusting headband that can be adjusted to fit personal taste and ensure the comfort of each user. While many headphones of this style do have adjustable headbands, the AKG K240 has a flexible steel adjustment system which allows adjustments to be made and makes sure that they stay in place. Many of the plastic slide models of headphone can easily fall out of place through movement or when the headphones are taken on and off. With the metal slides and the rugged construction, the adjustments you make with this line of headphones will stay put ensuring that every time you use them they will be pre adjusted to your comfort.
- 55 ohms impedance, plug-in cable
- Self-adjusting headband for optimum fit
- Single cable for ease of use
- Semi-open, circumaural design
- 15hz to 25khz frequency range
The earphones also come with special ear cups and a tight fitting construction which ensure a tight fit with your ears. Even with movement and activity the headphones will stay on comfortably. With a tight fit like this it makes a difference in comfort when wearing them stationary as well. They fit so well it feels like you aren’t even wearing headphones at all. Another advantage to the tight fit is that little sound is lost to the outside environment as well. All of the great rich sound being pumped through the headphones will resonate inside of the tight fitting earphones.
Not all of the pieces on this model are fully replaceable like in some other model of studio headphones. Unfortunately only the input cable is detachable and replaceable, which is quite easily done if the cord ever frays or needs repair. The need for repair is often unnecessary, as the AKG K240 are constructed to be very strong. The main structure is heavily braced with steel meaning that it can easily bend and flex, and take a vast amount of knocks and scrapes. Many all plastic headphones cannot stack up to the strong design that the AKG K240 headphones sport. Other headphones may need replacement parts quite quickly, yet even after being dropped and tossed around the AKG K240 headphones can still deliver great quality sound, after years of hard use.
The AKG K 240 Semi-Open studio headphones offer a great comfortable and durable design that can deliver superior sound quality at a reasonable price. Although these headphones may cost more than some other studio quality headphones, you are paying for quality. Consider it an investment as you may not have to replace this great pair of cans for years after purchasing them!
