Product Description

Here's what AKG say about the K240 MKII Headphones

The K240 MKII professional over-ear, semi-open headphones are a long-time standard in studios, in orchestras and on stages around the world. Its advanced Varimotion 30 mm XXL transducers deliver solid low end, accurate mids and crystal-clear highs. The semi-open design provides the airiness of open headphones with the powerful bass response of closed designs.

For more than three decades, professional engineers and musicians have made the K240 the most widely used headphones in studios and at live consoles around the world.

Miss Tracy Shankland2nd Jan 2023

Amazing sound, especially considering the price. These were a gift; I’ve had mine for a few years and have not even thought about changing them as they’re everything I need.

Good headphones for the money, comes with spare cloth ear ***** but after a while made ears sweat slightly put leather/ette ear ***** back on as you can give them a wipe with a cloth.

These are great headphones for practicing or music in general but it is to note that they are a cheap re-Edition of the original K240s. Materials are not as quite as good and the cable is a bit fiddly for today’ standards. If we put those cons in relation to the price we have nothing to complain about though. At this price point it’s hard to reach the sound quality of these AKGs.
