AKG K240 STUDIO review

Sound

The headphones are really great for critical listening for their neutral sound and no emphasis on any range. They reproduce the sounds the way they are recorded and they are perceived very naturally and pleasant for the roomy soundstage created by the semi-open cups. They do not show strength in low ranges, but show more details of them unlike many others headphones with stronger bass. I also like their warm sound without sharp highs, even if they are not so bright.

Connectivity

The headphones AKG K240 STUDIO are connected with an audio cable only. It is enough for home and studio use and reasonable, because you will hardly use the type of semi-open headphones out. The cable length is standard and enough to walk around. It is 3 m/9.8 ft long.

Comfort and design

This device is surprisingly light for its bulky look, just 240 g/8.4 oz. The light weight, large, soft, semi-open cups that allow air flow through make it great for long wearing without any fatigue. The headband has a light wired design that is easily adjustable being on the head. The cups do not fold to take less space so you won’t be able to carry them in a smaller collapsed size.
