Well, it had a huge following a couple of years ago in the wonderful "rediscovery" spirit. Let me quote myselfo from another thread (http://www.head-fi.org/t/522689/wahts-in-the-bag/60):
K340 is a wonderful ‘phone, the laboured outcome of panic stricken Viennese AKG engineers (Uncle Meat in his secret laboratory, laughing his special pseudo-scientific laugh?):
1976: Beyer presented the ET1000 electrostatic headphone.
1977: Sennheiser introduced the Unipolar 2000 electret headphone.
1978: AKG threw in all they got: a dynamic driver, an electret tweeter and six (!) passive bass radiators - the K340 electrostatic/dynamic headphone.
The K340 was avenged by history. Which model of the three above is remembered and treasured today? The ugly duckling. It has some issues but also many virtues.

I got them from the same deal from Musician's Friend however I think I saw the deal on dealnews.com. I don't watch the Head-Fi deal thread as closely as I PROBABLY should.
Sorry you can't be "in" until you change your username to AKG77.
