    Heady Headphones for the Head.

    I've been on a headphone kick lately, hence my joining this site.  I've found some very useful info just from stalking around sites such as this one and this seems to be the most helpful for headphones.  So thank u, first of all.    Soo, I'm thinking I'd like to grab a nicer, more...

    Does the T50rp sound good unmodded?

    Just curious if they do or if the only way to get good sound out of them is modding them. What are the major differences after modding them?

    Contemplating an upgrade to higher sound quality headphone for around 200

    I've sampled a couple higher end headphones (See my profile for details). And while I'm satisfied with my AKG K240 headphones, I am interested in what other options are for higher sound quality. I don't think I would choose to upgrade immediately, probably sometime in the future, but I don't...

    Upgrading from AKG K240 DFs to K702

    Hi people,   I have a dilemma.  I bought a vintage pair of K240 DFs some months back.  Basically, I love the mid range and treble on these things, they are so flat, neutral and clear (despite missing the very top end, it sounds), but I cannot abide their lack of bottom end any more!  I...

    Amp to drive vintage AKG K240DF 600ohm?

    Hi headbangers,   I've just recently received a pair of these used from eBay and I'm presently running them from either my Arcam Alpha 8 integrated amp or my Asus Xonar Essence STX soundcard.  I'm mightily impressed with them up to now.  Having read some glowing reviews about how these are a...

    itunes/soundmax equalizer settings to get more bass out of K240s?

    I mainly used my AKG k518 for listening, which is a basshead can. I got a pair of K240 for producing, and Im getting used to the difference in sound. Is there any EQ setting I can use to make the listening experience a little more involving?

    Headphone amp for 600 ohm K240's

    I've been doing some recording (guitar) with a Mac and an Ipad and I'm tired of using cheap headphones. I've got an old pair of 600 ohm K240's that I used to record back in the eighties and I would like to get an amp so I could use them again. I need an amp that has 3.5mm ins and outs and enough...

    Changing pads & foams on K240DF leads to brighter sound ?

    This can either be obvious or hard to predict.   I've changed both the ear pads and the inner foams on my 10 year old K240DF.  I've read that the older inner foam was glued to the ear-cup, so I carefully removed it and all of its residues from the driver's housing (that white cage right...

    K240S Bassy?

    I recently got a pair of these and was very surprised to find them very neutral sounding contrary to views on here of them being bassy.  I find the bass to be well integrated with the rest of the frequencies and not emphisised at all though maybe with some more burn in the bass will come out...

    Do the K240 Studio earpads fit on the K240 Monitor version?

    Versatile Amp for K240S and Sennheiser HD650

    Hello,   I currently own some AKG K240S cans but am looking into upgrading to some Sennheiser HD650's when I get the money. However, before I invest in some new headphones, I want to try out my current ones with a dedicated amp. Are there any amps that would pair well with both the AKGs and...

    AKG K240 too quiet? Do I need an amp? A sound card?

    So I just joined the Head-fi forums after reading two buying guides for headphones. I settled on the AKG K240's. I like them, but I get some interesting results, that I'm sure will make sense to someone more experienced than I.   - When I plug them into my android, I get mediocre volume...

    AKG K240 Studio - Velvet pads?

    I live in Canada and I am wondering where I can order the velvet pads (the ones that come with the mkii) for my studios, without getting ripped off. I've been using the leatherette ones that are included for a long time but they get sweaty and aren't super comfortable. I'm also open to other pad...

    AKG K240 Studios + FiiO E9. Good combination?

    I think that I'm severely underpowering my K240 Studios and that's part of the reason why I can't stand to listen to them. I'm willing to take a chance on an amp for them as I need one anyways.   I have an E7 so I have been looking at the FiiO E9 pretty much exclusively (as I won't need to...

    AKG K240 Studio owners please share your experience

    Again I am worrying for my K240 Studio...   I received them 5 days ago, I paid 83 $ but what I am listening is not that I was expecting, Bass is uncontrolled you have it when it is not needed AT ALL, Vocals?- dark and muffled, last night I was comparing with M30 end I think that M30 was more...

    Identifying AKG K240 variants w/o badges?

    Today I scored a pair of (what I'm pretty sure are) K240's off of CL for $10.   The only thing is they have no badges identifying what model they are. (Monitors or Studios?)   Here's what I know... -600 ohm -Gold rings -Single entry cord which is fairly stiff and has "ribbing" that...

My question is: I'm seeing a variety of AKG k240 Monitors (600 ohm version) on eBay and I've noticed some have different cord terminals. Some seem to have silver...

    AKG K-240 vs GradoSR series? Newbie girl'd appreciate pros weighing in

    Hi there,   After conducting many hours of research on my own, I've come to the point where I realize I need professional opinions.   Specifically, I'm looking to spend up to $150ish on a pair of amazing-sounding, over-the-ear or comfy on-ear headphones that I'll primarily use to listen...
