Alternatives to AKG K240 DF?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have AKG K240 DF phones and I like their sound signature and spacious soundstage.  My problem with them is that they don't fit well on my head--they are a bit too wide.  They not only don't seal well, but also tend to slip off too easily. 

 

So, what is a good comparable alternative to the K240 DFs that would fit a smaller/narrower head?  I'm looking for accuracy, detail, wide soundstage, and excellent imaging that measures up to the DFs and, ideally, that would be a reasonable even trade for the DFs. 

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks for any suggestions!

Maybe just get some thinker and firmer ear pads for the AKG K240 DF?

Thanks for the suggestion.  I thought of that, but I think there may be a problem with that approach.  If the pads fit the phones, like the ones you pointed out, they'll have the same dimensions and won't fit more snugly.  If they are thicker and fit more snugly, they may well alter the acoustics of the phones.  So, it may be worth exploring alternatives (which might be fun as well).
