question

Is this comfortable?
Asked by: Jay S.
I've worn versions of this headphone for very long periods of time in the studio, but now that I'm not in the studio anymore, I've purchased them for my employees who want great sound and comfort and may be sitting and coding for long periods. I think they are a great set.

question

what is the difference between the AKG K 240 studio and the K 240 MK II headphones?
Asked by: Anonymous
Both the AKG K240 Studio and the K240 MKII use the same Varimotion 30mm XXL transducers, yet the frequency response curves are slightly different, with the MKII a little flatter (from reference-audio-analyzer website). The MKII comes with an extra coiled cable and an extra set of leatherette earpads. Both are made in China in 2021, and the retail price difference is $86.

question

Is it good for musicians(keys)
Asked by: Anonymous
I am a musician and home recording enthusiast. I had a pair of these headphones 20 years ago and I decided to buy them again. They are just really good, basic, headphones. Whether you play keys or other instruments should not be what makes you decide. Headphones should give an accurate, flat response for whatever music you listen to so you can make decisions about your tone. I really dont want to spend over $100 for headphones. I only use these at night (when its too quiet to listen to studio monitors or recording when you cant have the monitors bleed thru the track so these were really the choice that made the most sense for me.
