Having reviewed the over ear wired headphones AKG K240 Studio vs Audio-Technica ATH-M20x I am leaving the following conclusions for your consideration and hope they will be useful. The first bright difference is the enclosure, AKG K240 has a closed back vs a semi-open one of Audio-Technica ATH-M40x.
The impedance of AKG K240 is a little higher than Audio-Technica ATH-M20x, 55 vs 47 Ohm. The same goes about frequency response, 15Hz-25KHz vs 15Hz-20KHz, and sensitivity 104 vs 96 dB.
A bass may seem a little weak for bass-heads, but in general it is real. It is just right as it is. Semi-open design makes me enjoy the transparency of mids and highs. I like their neutral ranges that are great for recording without extra emphasis on any of the frequencies and tones.
The sound of Audio-Technica is rich and warm. A right amount of bass without overpowering makes me focus on other sounds, instruments, and vocals. I like that it does not lack any mids and highs that adds an extra clarity to the sound compared to many other headphones I’ve heard.
Both headphones feel very light on the head with 240 and 190 g of weight respectively.
They are very soft padded and fit my head without tightening. Both headphones have adjustable headband and large cups that are comfortable for most ears. However Audio-Technica ATH-M20x is more portable vs AKG K240 for its foldable cups taking less space in your bag.
There is a 3 m long detachable cable and an extra audio cable in both.
The Audio-Technica ATH-M20x is better headphones in this comparison. Check Audio-Technica ATH-M20x price
