For those of you who like to dive deeper into the issue about different headphones sound profiles, I can recommend this site. Curves and measurement don´t say it all about the sound of a headphone, but it is a starting point for comparisons. You can for example see how AKG240 differs from AKG702.

I'll probably be disappointed with either. Might just stick with what I've got. Guess I shouldn't try to fix what isn't broken.

So, I have a set of AKG K240s that I bought years ago (more than 20) and they have monitor written on the sides, not studio. They were made in Austria. I can’t find any information on them. Does anyone know if these are the same as the 240 studio?

Bought a pair of these for my son for Christmas, and I like them so much I've just bought another pair for myself.
They're astonishingly good, and currently under £30 on Amazon.

Their hearthrough clarity and midband lucidity are something to behold, and that's straight from the box.
Heartily recommended from these quarters Big smile

Sounds like a bargain! Which headphone amp did you use through them?

Hi Chris,

I used to do some studio work, once upon a time and the K240s were used everywhere for monitoring. They do have a nice clarity and realism to them. Enjoy!

Happy New Year!
