    AKG K240 Sextett--Grado'd AKG?

    It's ok guys, I made a bit of a pigs ear with the soldering (not my strong point), and I honestly would have salvaged/put the parts on here but nothing on them was great condition as such, hence my reluctance to spend much money on them. And my replacement original pads arrive for them today...

    AKG K240 Sextett--Grado'd AKG?

    ah **** me, wired em up to test and they are completely dead, I give up on it now, they're sadly in the bin. I guess I'll be looking for replacements but new ones.   lame. My bad soldering is to blame. I must have damaged one of the drivers wiring them back up or something.   Thanks for...

    AKG K240 Sextett--Grado'd AKG?

    I've done a lot of reading of threads on these forums for the past few days, and for spares in the US I read you contact:   frank[dot]rodriguez[at]harman.com   And sure enough he exists, you then just get the item numbers from the AKG K240 exploded schematic/manual (which is easily...

    Ah, saying that I check my email and get a reply from Frank and he directs me to this UK site called www.soundtech.co.uk - so I have emailed them instead. This might make it cheaper on shipping I guess.   Even the filter foam is expensive for what it is, I only need a little bit. I'll keep...

    AKG K240 Sextett--Grado'd AKG?

    No reply still, I knew he took a while but bleh, I've been searching all day for similar 1/4" accoustic/reticulated foam, as I figured I can just make my own rings up, it's all so expensive though. If it was a couple of pounds I wouldn't mind. Especially as people are saying it makes little...

    AKG K240 Sextett--Grado'd AKG?

    Hmm, from what I can gather, middle version, white paper drivers with grey backing. Might be wrong though. Waiting on some pads which should come tomorrow, then I'll wait for a bit for frank to reply and if the prices aren't too outrageous I'll order the elastics and foam dampers, if not I'll...

    Not entirely sure, it has the white paper drums, is there anything else to identify them by?

    Maybe, I'd prefer a dedicated headphone amp to be honest. I'm not going to go out and get a £20 vintage amp when I have a nice pre/power already. Just want something small I can connect the CDP to directly and thats it.

    AKG K240 Sextett--Grado'd AKG?

    Yeah, I've taken it out and cleaned them up, the headphones are in pieces right now, I might need some help when I go to rewire them to make sure they are done correctly before sealing them all up again! I've emailed frank regarding some new felt damping rings and a couple of elastics while...

    AKG K240 Sextett--Grado'd AKG?

    Damn, the foam rings inside have completely disintigrated due to age, I don't want to spend too much refurbishing these as they are a bit beaten up, I know you can get new parts from frank at AKG or whatever - but does anyone have a cheaper solution?

    AKG K240 Sextett--Grado'd AKG?

    I guess I'll have to strip them down and take a look again. I hope I can see which one I resoldered, probably the worse looking one hehe, cheers for the info. Hopefully I can see which is +/- on the driver.

    AKG K240 Sextett--Grado'd AKG?

    Hi there, long time reader but first post. I was advised to come here by some guys over at HiFi Wigwam to see if I could get any answers to my question. I've done a search regarding my question but I'm still not entirely sure, so I'll just post my thread here too: I've read from here that...
