Again I am worrying for my K240 Studio...
I received them 5 days ago, I paid 83 $ but what I am listening is not that I was expecting, Bass is uncontrolled you have it when it is not needed AT ALL, Vocals?- dark and muffled, last night I was comparing with M30 end I think that M30 was more close to natural sounding when 2 times more expensive and semi open AKG
Ouuu I never knew that Paganini's The 6 Violin Concertos - Accardo - Dutoit & LPO - DG (APE) was played on something other instrument than Violin.
And then I thought OK I will try some WAX Tailor. You know this song To Dry Up? it begins with Bass and then vocal of Charlotte Savary, I had an impression that on AKG Charlotte was drunk lack of detail lack or richness of sound but bass was here what a delightful surprise
Thing is that straight out from my onboard sound card AKG has equal loudness as Audio-Technica ATH-M30 and my listening level was 50 % because more then that it is very loud for me. may be my sound card is decent may be not but I feel I do not need any more loudness. so I think amp will not help
Finally question is- All my unhappiness are because of this K240s needs more burn than 48 hour? I never counted but I am sure I listened minimum 48 hours. I have full collection of Decca Ultimate classical music and played most of dicks...
Please share your first impressions about K240S, It was same when you listened them first time?
