Overpriced piece of $hit.

The AKG K240 Studio. Smooth and silky... and incredibly asleep sounding, there's practically no transients and the soundstaging is mediocre. These are generic loudness headphones masquerading as studio cans and are a disgrace to the AKG name. 

 

My uber-sh!tty Wal-Mart headphones from the mid 80's are better than these.

For $80 did you really expect much. Also that DiscordDubstep kid has been raving about these headphones. He would probably cry himself to sleep if he heard anyone say anything bad about them.

It was $100 at the time, and considering the fact that the K240M, Sextett, DF, etc are all extremely well regarded and popular on these forums... yes, I was expecting much.

The only reason I got the K240 in the first place was because we were at Guitar center and my brother was getting a new guitar.  Hype had no influence. It was simple new toy lust and the K240S was the most appealing thing there, so that's what I got.

 

Also, the older K240 models are all incredibly good, especially the DF. The newer variants aren't comparable in any way shape or form.
