AKG K240s with Keyboard

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys! I just joined because I need some help honestly... My google searches did not help. I recently bought a pair of akg k240s thinking they would sound good with my digital keyboard (casio privia px150). They sound great but even with the volume turned all the way up they're barely loud at all. I wouldn't think I'd need an amp... I just have no clue why the volume sucks. They're perfectly loud enough plugged into my laptop. Any help/advice is MUCH appreciated. Thank you!

Sounds like the headphone jack on the keyboard does not put out enough juice for the K240s.

Which model K240s are they? Studio? Monitor? Sextett?

Where they new K240s or used ones?

Brand new studio headphones. I get louder volume from my phone than I do from the keyboard.

Get a headphone amp. FiiO E11 would more than take care of the problem.

Sounds like the problem is in your keyboard. Phones do not go as loud as ordinary keyboards. You can get an amp to make the sound louder.

So AKG K240 Studio 55-Ohm headphones, which like a little more juice to work well compared to other low impedance (Ohm) headphones.

Get you phone outputs more juice then your keyboard.
