These Headphones Define the Studio Standard!Reliable, comfortable, and totally accurate, it's no wonder AKG K 240 Studio headphones have been the top choice of professional engineers and musicians for over twenty years. Their unique semi-open design and highly efficient transducers provide you with extremely wide dynamic range, breathtaking detail, and phenomenal sensitivity. That's why Sweetwater Sales Engineers have always been quick to recommend K 240 Studio headphones, especially when it comes to critical listening and mixing. Whether you're in the engineer's chair or on the other side of the glass, we're sure you're going to love the sound, feel, and performance of AKG's K 240 Studio headphones.
AKG K 240 Studio Monitoring Headphones at a Glance:
Semi-open-back design gives you the best of both worlds
When AKG created their K 240 Studio headphones, they set out to strike the perfect balance between a conventional closed-back design and a high-end open-back design. The result is a pair of headphones that give you the detailed highs and accurate lows you'd expect from an open-back design, but with the tight, closed-back-style acoustical isolation you need for tracking. What's more, K 240 Studio headphones let your ears breathe, so you experience next to no ear fatigue - something you'll really love the next time you have to pull an all-night mixing session.
Superior sound through superior headphone technology
We could rattle off a bunch of specs or wax poetic about the K 240 Studio's Varimotion low-impedance transducers, but the fact of the mater is that AKG truly broke new ground when they engineered these amazing headphones. K 240 Studio headphones sport lighter, more responsive transducers then the kind typically found in affordable models. This means K 240 Studios respond clearly and loudly even to the weak signals, allowing you to monitor unmastered tracks accurately, without cranking the gain. Incidentally, this same low-impedance transducer technology lets K 240 Studios get the most out of your iPod or other portable music player, so they're ideal for casual listening too.
Quality construction that's built to last a lifetime
When you invest in a pair of AKG's K 240 Studio headphones, you getting the kind of quality gear you can count on for the long haul. First off, AKG builds their K 240 Studio headphones to the highest standards, ensuring that they're ready to stand up to typical studio use and abuse. But accidents happen. Cables can break and earcups eventually wear out. Fortunately, these are easy to replace, and you'll find replacement cables and earcups for your K 240 Studio headphones right here at Sweetwater.

Great Headphones for the Buck
by David Goddard from Ashburn, Virginia USAMy other Sony MDR V-6's gave up the ghost so I started the quest of finding a set of phones that were accurate, comfortable and NOT flat response.

I then remembered using AKGs many years ago in several recording studios and gave them a try. First thing I noticed was absolutely ZERO ear fatigue! Even after several hours use, it was like they were a part of me. Also they are extremely comfortable with great overall balance of frequencies.I mostly mix from monitors but these give a wonderful perspective of the overall mix. For the price, they can't be beat. close [-]
