These Headphones Define the Studio Standard!

Reliable, comfortable, and totally accurate, it's no wonder AKG K240 Studio headphones have been the top choice of professional engineers and musicians for over 20 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 K240 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 K240 Studio headphones.

AKG K240 Studio Monitoring Headphones at a Glance:
  • Semi-open-back design gives you the best of both worlds
  • Superior sound through superior headphone technology
  • Quality construction that's built to last a lifetime
Semi-open-back design gives you the best of both worlds

When AKG created their K240 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 gives 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, K240 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 K240 Studio's Varimotion low-impedance transducers, but the fact of the matter is that AKG truly broke new ground when they engineered these amazing headphones. K240 Studio headphones sport lighter, more responsive transducers than the kind typically found in affordable models. This means K240 Studios respond clearly and loudly even to weak signals, allowing you to monitor unmastered tracks accurately, without cranking the gain. Incidentally, this same low-impedance transducer technology lets K240 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 K240 Studio headphones, you get the kind of quality gear you can count on for the long haul. First off, AKG builds their K240 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 K240 Studio headphones right here at Sweetwater.

AKG K240 Studio Monitoring Headphones Features:
  • Incredible-sounding headphones designed for mixing, tracking, and critical listening
  • Semi-open-back design provides extreme accuracy without sacrificing acoustical isolation
  • Self-adjusting headband gives you the perfect fit without sacrificing comfort
  • 10' cable attaches via mini XLR jack and is easily replaceable
  • Replacement earcups are available
  • Includes gold-plated, screw-on 1/8"-1/4" plug adapter
AKG's K240 Studio headphones deliver amazing studio-quality sound!

Great Headphones

Sounds great for whatever you want to do. I use these for listening to movies in private through a home theater system and they perform flawlessly. These are comfortable and lightweight and are solidly built. Highly recommended.

They Look Good and Sound Great!

This is the first time I have actually bought a professional-level set of phones and I was pleasantly surprised at the difference in quality of sound and comfort. I will never go back to the bargain phones again, although these phones were a real bargain in the quality they have versus the cost. This is a sturdy, good-looking pair of phones that gives you the clarity and depth sound that you need for mixing or performing in the studio.

I did not realize that listening to music is better with headphones. It was like being at a live show. I would suggest these headphones very much. Thanks, Paula Benson

THESE ARE A GREAT BUY ESPECIALLY FOR 70 SMACKERS

I HAD A PAIR OF K240S SINCE THE 90'S BUT MY PIT-BULL USED THEM AS A CHEW TOY. SO AFTER MANY YEARS OF USING THE SONY 7506'S I TOOK ADVANTAGE OF THE 30 DOLLAR OFF SAVINGS AND BOUGHT THESE FOR 70 BUCKS. THEY ARE VERY COMFORTABLE AND I TRULY ENJOY THE SOUND BETTER THAN THE SONYS. I WAS ACTUALLY SHOCKED AND HAD TO COMPARE ALL MY MONITORING EQUIPMENT. I USE A PAIR OF KRK ROKIT6'S AND ALSO A PAIR OF KRK ROKIT 8'S AND I SO FAR I THINK I LIKE USING THESE BETTER FOR TRACKING THRU MY ELEVEN RACK7 8PREX AS WELL AS FOR MIXING AND MASTERING. IM SURE THERE ARE BETTER DOMEPHONES OUT THERE BUT THESE WORK FOR ME IN MY PROJECT STUDIO. BUY THEM THEYRE GOOD

Buy Them!

I've had a pair of these for about 30 yrs now and they still are some of the best sounding 'phones I have ever heard, even with slightly worn ear pads. For about $70 bucks you really can't go wrong. You will spend a lot more before you hear a noticeable difference.

K240s have been a studio standard for years. Really a true standard in many ways!
