I have a pair of AKG K240.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

First I want to know your opinions on these headphones and if getting these for like 55$ off a friend was worth it for mint condition, and I want to know if getting an amp would change any quality? And any amp recommendations within reason as a beginner into nice sound haha. I really like the head phones, because they aren't very open and I can still hear my music and still be able to talk to family with them on. But is there really any pluses into buying an amp for these? Whether it be desktop or portable.

 

 

EDIT: I know a posted yesterday about a gaming headset and amp, but that wasn't for me. That was for a friend who didn't want a low quality gaming head set for his PC.

are you referring to K240 or K240 mk ii? K240 mk ii comes with extra cable and velour pads. I would say k240 mkii for 55$ is a very good offer.

I have a pair of K240 mkii, they benefit from E17 dac/amp. I could notice significant improvement in sound quality when they are connected E17 rather than onboard soundcard of computer.

The AKG 240 has been made in about 5 (maybe more) different versions over many, many years. Are these the currently available K240 Studio ($99) or the K240 Mk II ($149)? Or are they one of the older versions (Monitor, DF, Sextett, etc)? Search is your friend - there are zillions of threads on head-fi about these classic 'phones.
