AKG K240S - Searching for detail

Jan 9, 2006 (Updated Jan 9, 2006)
Review by  
Rated a Helpful Review

Pros:Nice build quality, attractive, long cord, comfortable and light.

Cons:Mediocre sound. Why bother when there are other, better sounding options out there.

The Bottom Line: The AKG K240S are lacking in sound quality and there are much better sounding options out there in this price range.


I spent an afternoon auditioning headsets at a local music store and was particularly interested in the K240S

The K240S is a nice looking set of headphones. They have a modern/retro tech look that I find interesting and attractive. They seem well made and more than sturdy enough for everyday use. The cord is VERY long and has a screw on 1/8 to 1/4" adapter.

I also thought the comfort was quite good. They have large circular pads that completely encircle your ears, but they are not completely sealed and seem to breathe somewhat which made them more comfortable than the other headsets I tried. They also were just about right when it came to the tension of the band. Others I tried were like wearing a vice on my head.

After reading the other reviews on this site I was surprised at the mediocre sound of the AKG K240S. At first the sound seemed good, but when I listened closely for the extreme detail I enjoy in music, it simply wasn't there. With Sennheiser HD 280 PRO headphones I compared, I could hear subtle sounds like the soft sizzle of a stick on cymbals, and the sounds of fingers on guitar strings that made the music seem live. I was disappointed that these sounds were completely missing on the ACG headphones.

Missing too was the detail in the vocals. Compared to the Sennheisers, voices seemed veiled and lacked clarity. Perhaps these headphones are fine for mixing and recording ( not my intended use), but they simply do not measure up to other headphones in their class in overall sound.
