Not as comfortable as I would have liked

These are my first pair of 'studio monitoring' headphones, therefore my views on what sound qualities I should expect from them are unqualified. With that in mind, anyone reading my review regarding sound, should look at a review from someone more experienced with studio headphones. The primary use for these, is to not disturb neighbours during later hours, whilst having a decent enough sound (for me), and with both these in mind, the AKG's succeed.

Although I wouldn't consider mixing tracks in headphones, I found that balancing tracks' levels, was a lot more accurate than regular headphones to a very large degree. Hearing the same mix through speakers surprised me, as far as how close the two mixes were, level wise. I can't comment on EQ, as I don't think I can rely on headphones for that.

They certainly don't sound bad, and I have enjoyed listening to commercial releases, albeit with a flat EQ (I do notice that)

The problem for me, is comfort. The pads that are supposed to go 'over ear', press against the edges of my ears. After some time it becomes quite painful, because my ears get pinched on the edges. I don't have particularly large ears. From inspecting the pads, I can see that there would have been enough room to make the holes for the ears a little larger; that way, the pads would still serve their purpose of cushioning, without pressing onto the edges of the ears. I am considering enlarging the pad opening, if it is possible without ruining them.

Apart from that issue, I think they are good. The interchangeable cables are easy to fit, and have a good locking mechanism. The sound is good, albeit from the inexperience as described earlier. The build quality is good, based on the firmness of the headband, and plastics that I would expect at this price.

Worth the money!
ShredHead83 22.11.2021
Bought these to use when i play the guitar in the evenings.
They're better than what i expected, the sound is so clear, tried it on all the different channels on the amp and with different settings on the guitar, it all sounds amazing! They dont totally cut out the background noise,but they do reduce it a little bit, but its not a problem for me. The pads are really comfortable and it comes with an extra set for ppl like me with smaller ears lol. The cable is long enough to be a nice little distance away from the amp.
All in all best headphones ive owned. I would fully recommend them, money well spent!

AKG K-240 MKII....AMAZING
Kosh2262 12.09.2019
These headphones sound very good. When i switch between my Adam audio T7V's and the AKG K-240 MKII there is almost no differance in sound quality..... i was truly astonished that AKG have managed to squeez this much quality into a pair of headphones in this price range. They are very flat responce which is ideal for mixing tracks..... don't expect your music to sound better through these...that is not what they were designed to do. The are open back so not recomended for tracking but very well suited for mixing.... i use them to check my mix on a second source other than my Adam's. Highly recomended and i am loving these Headphones. Thomann got them to me on time and in pristine condition.... well packaged and protected. Buy these....you will love them

Good for studio/listening/guitar practice
JCS84 12.03.2018
These are very decent headphones for a variety of musical applications. They have a relatively wide frequency response and have little or no sound "coloring". This means they are good for monitoring and audio production, listening to music, and also plugging straight into the headphone jack of a guitar amplifier for late night practice. When pushed, bass, mids and highs sound nice and crisp. Being semi-open they do leak a tiny bit of sound so this model is not ideal for voice recording.
I usually find this type of headphones somewhat uncomfortable, but these ones are especially nice to wear. They are self-adjustable and the pads cup the ears nicely. The synthetic leather pads make me sweat a bit around the ears after 2 hours or so, however.
This set includes an extra pair of velour pads and an extra cord, which is a nice addition and worth the price difference compared to the MKI (at the time of purchasing). Having detachable mini XLR cords is, by the way, a great feature.
Within their price range and category these are a very good option and I am happy with them. They sound better and are better built than slightly cheaper options, but might not be what serious Hi-Fi enthusiasts are looking for. For the listed applications they perform very well and are very reasonably priced.
