AKG K340 Electrostatic-Dynamic Systems - NOS / NEW with Originial Packaging
Will Ship To: Anywhere
I Love the K340, but I am not a Collector, I am a Listener ;D When i first discovered the K340 back in the days . . . I was so totally blown away by them. So I started to BUY another pair, and BUY another pair, and BUY another pair ~ I was obsessed, because every pair sounded different! Some were clear and spacious, some were muffled and less detailed . . . so I was searching for a NEW pair, to hear how the K340 was meant to sound. Why, you ask? Because MY theory is that the more a K340 is used, the more the electrets are dying and THAT is the reason, why the pairs i bought on ebay etc. sounded so different. I think it has nothing to to with the different driver versions. Thats why I wanted to Grab 2 NOS pairs of a K340 to see, if my theory was true or not. It was. I got 2 NOS Pairs, one from Ebay (i was lucky), one from a Collectror in Austria (i searched the whole country to find it) . . . and you know what? They sound exactly the same and much, much better than the other pairs I had. The NOS K340 sounds even better than my K400s, K501s or Q701s. Its extremely detailed, bass is good and the Soundstage is 3D-like and better than my T90s.
So if any of you are curious about the true K340-Sound, here's your opportunity. Some of you might say its overpriced. I don't think so, because for my second NOS Pair I paid 320€. And it was worth it, but I don't need 2 Pairs. Both of my pairs are exactly the same ind sound and looks.
I don't know which driver version it is, because I haven't opened them. I do not dare, because they are too beautiful, i don't want any scratches on them and it already sounds PERFECT out of the box. I feel no need to mod them or remove the cotton. If you do so, it's your thing ;D I like it as it is <3
