Hairline cracks in AKG K240 MkII? - Page 2

post #16 of 21
OP, AKG headphpnes are VERY durable, and tend to offer very good sound IMHO. I own 4 pairs of AKG's, and haven't had a problem with any. I would not be hesitant to buy if I were you, as these are rare occurrences, and even so, you an still sell it, as someone will buy it that doesn't care. I just sold some Hd555 with a crack down the cup biggrin.gif

The same problem with my akg k-240 mkII headphones! The right side was broken and a cable had come loose. I am very upset about the poor build quality from this expensive headphones! A tip: To open the headphone there is a small screw under the label affixed AKG..

I've owned my pair for more than 2 years and they are still in great conditions. apart from the usual wear and tear on the pads and a few scratches on where I lean them on the desk, I haven't had any problems. I think the biggest problem isn't the quality, but how we treat them. The k240 aren't sturdy like the metal used on Sony 7506 but in no way are they poorly built. Anyways, that's my take on them.

I have the same problem! Both sides, AKG K240 MKII.


I'm trying to find if there's any possibility to change that piece... but I have 2 problems. First, I don't know the exact name/reference number of this piece... Perhaps this?:




And second... I don't know how to dissasemble that part for change it. Any of you could do it and can make a video or tutorial? Thank you.
