Worth it
07.01.2016
There are quite a few good qualities in these headphones with only minor drawbacks.

I tend to listen to high-definition music, 320 kbps and the likes.
What initially struck me when listening to music through these headphones is the quality. After owning cheap 15euro headphones for so long, I immediately noticed a huge increase in clarity, especially in the low-frequency spectrum.
These speakers have higher impedance than some and this causes them to be slightly less-loud, but they are still perfectly capable of drowning out any background noise, such as a TV or radio playing.
These headphones are also semi-open, meaning their sound-insulation isnt very high. This can be seen as good or bad, as you may not want others hearing your music, but it also means I can speak to others while the speakers are still on my ears

For comfort, I didnt give a fifth star for some minor reasons.
First, the removable audio jack extrudes quite a long way out of the bottom of the speaker, and sometimes snags on the collar of my coat. I dont mind this too much as having a removable jack at all is great for me, but still this is worth noting.
Secondly, the material used to form the speaker pads, while soft and easy on the skin, is leathery, meaning that if i wear the phones for a long duration, they will leave sweat-marks on the skin.

The rest of the build quality is very satisfactory, with self-adjusting headband and a good flexible, agile feel to the product as a whole- these will probably last a long time. These headphones are also very light, meaning they dont leave that annoying headphone-hair indent on my head when using them for hours.

So to sum up, Very good quality sound, Very comfortable (usually), durable.

Excellent value for money

I use these headphones for pretty much everything from monitoring, tracking, and listening to music outdoors and it does a very good job in all situations. The semi-open construction is useful for being able to hear traffic while in urban areas, which is usually difficult with closed-back designs. Unfortunately, that means there is not much rejection when tracking loud instruments like drums or a miked guitar cabinet in the same room.

The sound quality is great, but not as crystal clear as my AKG K-702 but these AKG K-240s are a fraction of the cost. The character is nice and clear but doesn't have an anaemic or over-present bottom end; The bass and low mids sound pretty good to my ears.

The construction is actually a lot tougher than it would appear, but beware that AKG headphones sometimes have a problem with wires popping loose inside the housing. Repairing this issue requires opening your headphones and re-soldering the loose wire. This has happened on 2 of the 3 AKG headphones I own. Also, the soft, plastic ear pads harden over time and need replacing. That being said, these are some of the hardest wearing headphones I've ever owned.

I highly recommend them to anyone looking for great value headphones that will serve them for years with the minimum hassle.

Great budget headphones
P to the ieter, 08.01.2021
I've been using AKG K-701's for several years now, for listening to music, and was looking for something in addition to practice guitar with and to take along on travels. The AKG K-240 offers excellent sound quality at the price point and is very comfortable to wear. It truly is a very light set of headphones - Not much in the sense of luxury and some of the materials look a bit cheap, but decently made nonetheless.

Really happy with the natural sound they project which is much better than expected at this price.

I expected more in terms of comfort...
The Jamma, 26.10.2020
I recently returned a Focusrite Scarlet Solo because it didn't suit my needs and the headphones that came with it were far better than these at a similar price i guess (It was a bundle deal).

These headphone have an elastic system that 'auto adjusts' to your head/ear size and i really don't like it. Its not as comfortable as adjustable headphones and you cant 'overadjust' them a bit to reduce the weight/contact with you head so you've always got a plastic strip on your head.

For me the padding around the ears is too hard for long use comfort, and they are quite small - which, if like me you have chunky earrings, makes it really uncomfortable until you kind of tuck them into the headphones!

I also found the tension too much and feel too much pressure on my ears, again with no way to adjust it.

And finally, a small but irritating thing is the elastic adjuster means that (on one side) some of the auto adjusting sliding stuff hits the metal rim around the speaker scratching the gold colour off.

Overall they sound OK but for the reasons above, I cant wear them for long so i'm changing them
