    "Had mine for a happy 30 years."

    This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.

    Sound:
    The sound from these headphones is very very good. I have had a pair of the AKD240s for 30 years and they are my favorite. The fidelity is the best. I have used many different stereos with them over the past 30 years. Nothing is needed to make them sound better.
    Ease of Use:
    Good as is.
    Quality:
    Have used mine for 30 years and they still work very well.
    Manufacturer Support:
    no need for support
    Value:
    $100 is a steal.
    The Wow Factor:
    simple and sounds great!

    AKG K240 Studio Circumaural Stereo Headphones Customer Review

    This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.

    Sound:
    I've used AKG 240DF headphones for 25 years and know them intimately. After speaking to an AKG tech, I bought the AKG K240S as a replacement for my old units and to upgrade to the 21st century. I returned them immediately because they sound nothing like what I'm used to and what was told would be very similar. They still have a realistic, pronounced midrange and un-hyped upper end, but there was too much low end for my taste. For both tracking and reference, I felt these headphones would not give an accurate representation of the music.
    Feature:
    Comfortable and light.
    Quality:
    Excellent construction.
    Manufacturer Support:
    AKG let me astray by recommending these as a proper substitute for my old 240DF. They sound completely different.
    Value:
    Great bang for the buck phone.
    Overall:
    Overall, it's a fine set of phones. For those that like pronounced lows, it's realistic and comfortable.

    "Don't buy AKG until you've read this review"

    Sound:
    The AKG 240S headphones would be decent phones, but they have an intractable problem. Within 3 months of purchase, and under very light usage, the cable went bad (to put this in perspective, I have Sony headphones with hardwired cables that I've had for over 12 years and used every single day, and they still work fine). The detachable cable in question has an 1/8" jack with screw-on 1/4" jack on one end, and a strange-looking proprietary mini (3/32"?) jack that plugs into the headphone (this is _NOT_ a mini XLR). This proprietary jack is utterly impossible to fix, even for an electronics technician, and the phones themselves seem impossible to modify as well - which makes this product utterly worthless, completely unfixable. I asked AKG for a replacement cable, and they were not forthcoming, and were very rude to me, and said that it was my fault that it broke. I have over 15 sets of headphones, some over 15 years old, and the only ones that no longer work are the AKG 240S--and they quit working within 3 months. They gave me no option to get them working again, so I'm left with a $99 piece of garbage. It is my considered opinion as a studio owner and electronics technician that cable system for the 240S is a grossly flawed design. AKG should change the design, and then replace or repair all of the faulty headphones that they wrongly allowed to enter the marketplace, together with an apology to those consumers who were unfortunate enough to waste their hard-earned money on these faulty headphones. They should also fire the dimwit who came up with this blatantly flawed cable system. Needless to say, I will never buy AKG products again, and I let every musician that comes into my studio see my $99 piece of AKG JUNK. It hangs not-so-proudly on my "Wall of Shame", with a note explaining why no one should buy AKG headphones.
    Feature:
    Features don't matter much in a product that doesn't work, and can't be fixed.
    Quality:
    Product didn't work. No option available to fix it.
    Manufacturer Support:
    I only had the phones for less than 3 months. When I called AKG, they said it was my fault they broke and would not cover it under warranty, and could not or would not fix it anyway. They were VERY rude to me.
    Value:
    The product stopped working in less than 3 months. For a $100 product, that's pretty bad.
    The Wow Factor:
    It doesn't work. It can't be fixed. Company is unhelpful and rude.
    Overall:
    I won't ever buy another AKG product ever again. Faulty design, no support, and rude service. A total bummer.

    "Truthfully speaking"

    This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.

    Sound:
    They are for those who realize and understand what headphones are for. If you want good sound quality wherein you can actually hear what you're listening for then those is what you want but if you want something thats gonna make your ears bleed just strap a couple 12 inch woofers to your head and save your money on these.
    Feature:
    they're headphones what features?..
    Quality:
    I have a 1 year old son and a 4 year old daughter that fight over these and I'll probably use them later so what does that tell you...
    Manufacturer Support:
    I support akg...
    Value:
    well worth the dollar...
    The Wow Factor:
    sex sales ask akg....
    Overall:
    i wouldnt trade them for a different pair..
