Nina Hagen in the studio ~'83 with I suspect AKG K240M ( likely not the Sextett so that has to be it,  but its got to be one of those two ) Guess I need to keep them now :ph34r:.

Now, which British headphone brand is this? We need the answer once and for all. I mean this is the headphone partly responsible for the song balance on some of the world's most popular music. Hear me, Mr John Willett et al.

 

These are "Super K" military headphones by S.G. Brown, a London-based firm. And apparently they sound like sh*t.

 

Here is a quote from the source identifying these:

 

"There were very few headphones available in the 1960s. Abbey Road used a model made by electronics manufacturer S.G. Brown from Acton, north London, who had made radio communication equipment for the army during the war. The military-surplus Super K model were the only headphones that Abbey Road used up until 1969 and had several limitations. Not only were they mono, but they suffered from extremely poor audio quality, having been designed originally for communicating in difficult conditions. They had an enhanced mid-range and no bass or treble to speak of. However, they were virtually indestructible and probably purchased for their ruggedness rather than audio quality."
