Can you tell me about the sound? I heard from a somewhat reliable source that this particular model has an large, audible dip, somewhere in the lower treble, that makes them fatiguing to listen.
It was for this reason that I got Studios instead. Can you verify if there is, or isn't, such a problem?
You mean spike ?
No ..there is nothing striking in the frequency balance , the presence region (UM - LT) to me sounds flat , only the upper treble is rolled off , its kinda like a Sennheiser-ized AKG , like the 612 and 712 , the 240 has good bass extension but it goes through the same problem that "Mid-Fi Open Dynamics" go through , that is distortion in the Sub-Bass at low notes and with some songs mastered with a lot of bass , but since I am aware of that limitation , its not a huge deal
The surprising thing is grain , the 240 is almost grain free , I would go so far as to say its on par with my 650s , it beats the 702 in terms of grain ...but the 7XX has its own charm
The 240 is a classic , I'm amazed .....time to save up and finish the AKG headphone collection !
