    Well this just throws a spanner in the works.
    It appears to be identical to K140 drivers... a single dot.
    At this point I can only guess that the original K240 sextett, K141 and K140 share identical drivers.
    If this is true, it goes to show how important implementation is, since K140 is audibly mushier sounding than the other two.

    Yeah, definitely, although the overall K140 signature was the same from stock form to the K240 shell impementation, the sound was improved in terms of body and bass response. Those passive drivers really are nice! Thanks again for taking the time to look at the drivers!

    Thanks for the pictures GREQ. A lot of the older uploaded images have now disappeared from the net, image hosting sites have removed a lot of uploads (due to age or infrequent views etc.)

    Forgive me as I'm sure this has been covered somewhere in this thread, but I have a set of 240 sextett that have a blown driver (see pic, red driver). I am having a hard time finding a single driver I can use to match my existing. Do any of the other AKG models of that time period use the same driver? I have seen comparisons stating that the 140, 141, and 240 monitors are the same, then others state they are not. Does anyone know for sure? What would my best options be to fine a single, or pair if necessary, of replacement drivers which are the same or very close. Thanks in advance guys!

    Could you take it out of it's grey sleeve and see how many dots are on the diaphragm?
    Aside from colour, this is one of the only ways of telling these drivers apart. (Reds usually have 5 dots.)
  6. justdoitbucks
    It appears there are 6, 1 in the center and 5 around it. Thank you for helping!
  7. GREQ
    Ok, then I think I've got a replacement for you.
    Send me a private message and let's see if we can sort something out.

    Im pretty new to the Sextett club...bought a pair of MP about a month ago,after I had bought a K340.....

    at first I was afraid they would be redundant,but theyre totally different sounding headphones,and the K240 IMO is vastly superior.In fact I like em so much I just bought a pair of EP sextetts.

    Im powering them with a late 70s Sansui 881 receiver and it really is a unique listening experience.

    One more thing I might add,sextetts are AMAZING for guitar oriented metal!!!!!

    I shared this in the team AKG thread.

    Picked up a pair of Sextetts on eBay that I knew were going to be a little bit rough but now that I've got them in my hands it looks like it will be needing a complete restoration. Inner band is wrecked. Pads are badly in need of replacement, one of the silver cup rings has popped loose, and the ear cups feel really loose on their pivot. I saw that someone had posted a Sextett breakdown guide before, but all the pics seem to be dead links now. Can anyone point me to a good resource for taking these things apart?

    If the inner band elastic is shot you can attach hair elastic ties to the outside,each end wrapped around the knobs on the sides...works wonders,and no disassembly required. 

    for the pads you can use Brainwavz hybrids(or so ive been told)to replace the stock ones.

    The rest I dont know how to fix[​IMG]

    If you're referring to the post by minivan, none of those images work anymore.

    Oops, you're right, sorry. Didn't look at the actuel post, just did a copy/past from my bookmarks.
