I guess I should check in. K391, K501, and K712 here.

I snagged a pair of K240 sextett LP's from my pal. They are in awesome condition with new pads etc. I play them off of my laptop --> HifimeDIY dac --> E12, and I just love their sound - balanced yet fun and engaging with awesome mids. Very low distortion when cranked up, and very non-fatiguing. Call me a huge fan :-)

My first pair of real headphones were AKG K272s and they're still my favorite closed back can for use away from my desktop system.

Just got 1 cans here, tested the HD600, DT880 and Q701 and went for Q701 in the end. Am I in? :k701smile:

Having owned the K550 which I loved (but sold due to financial reasons) and now owning a Q701 (they are white and I don't even care!) I am firmly in the AKG camp. Not sure I will be buying the K7/812 any time soon as my banker would kill me. But I do really enjoy the AKG sound.

These cans really take the edge off of loud masterings... and they are terrific for classical also. :smile:

Spent quite a big chunk of the weekend nursing the K250 back to good health.

It was in pretty bad shape but I felt that I needed to save this fairly uncommon headphone.

Sonically very similar to the K241 - they have almost identical baffles and very similar drivers.

A nice collection, only vital model missing is the father of them all - the K140. And then the K240 Sextet, K260, K280, K290, K340... well, it's quite feasable snatching them up in Germany.

Actually I've got a seriously beaten up K140W (the 'w' stands for 'wireless') in the cellar - bought it for almost nothing in a flea market, as it came without the infra-red transmitter.

On top of that one driver was blown and it looks like it's had a rough life, so it's just waiting to be scrapped for parts *sob*. 

 

I'm guessing it has identical drivers to the regular K140, which is what keeps putting me off buying one, as they're just not as good as the later versions. :rolleyes:

Anyone knows if the K240 MK2 and new K141 (same as K242HD) use the same drivers?

 

I find the sound of the K141 very decent. It doesn't sound weak in any area, a very good all around headphone with a slightly rolled off treble.

Checking in with the K612 Pro I just got today and the K240 MKII.

 

 

@Headzone: I don't think they use exactly the same, they probably just differently tuned versions of the same drivers due to some differences in their specs. I haven't heard the K141 so I can't comment on how they sound compared to the K240 MKII.

According to service manuals, the K 240 II and the K 141 II use the same driver.

 

The original '70s K 240 and K 141 used the same driver between each other as well, so no change there.
