The secret to the semi-open K 240 Studio’s sound quality is the new XXL transducers in acoustically tuned vented enclosures with circumaural (around the ear) pads. The circumaural pads envelope your ears nicely and reward you with smooth, solid bass and well-balanced, articulate mids and highs. For over twenty years, professional engineers and musicians have made the AKG K 240 headphones the best selling and most widely used headphones in large studios, sound stages and orchestras around the world. Reliable, comfortable and true, the K 240 Studio headphones from AKG lend well to professional and project studios alike.
AKG K240 Studio at a Glance:
- Low impedance driver – for use with any headphone jack
- Plug-in cable
- Semi-open, circumaural design
Low Impedance Driver = Better, Louder Sound
So, how does AKG improve on a standard headphone? Featuring a new, low impedance XXL transducer with patented AKG Varimotion technology, the K 240 Studio headphones deliver a more accurate signal transfer and greater dynamic range than previously possible. Most importantly, the AKG K 240 Studio headphones play louder than ever before – on ANY system!
The AKG K 240 Studio features a plug-in cable with mini XLR connector. This AKG innovative and professional design is especially of benefit if the cable is ever damaged. Instead of purchasing a new set of AKG K 240 Studio headphones, you only have to replace the cable (saving you money!).
Semi-Open, Circumaural Design
Semi-open headphones, such as the AKG K 240 Studio, combines the best features of both closed or sealed headphones and open air designs and relatively few or none of their disadvantages. Through careful attention to the control of resonances, a surprisingly realistic stereo sound field is developed, coupled with low distortion and extended low frequency response. Circumaural headphones encircle the ear, and provide a good seal. The AKG K 240 Studio are comfortable to wear, provide good isolation, and result in a consistent sound from one wearing to another. Bass extension is excellent with the AKG K 240 Studio because a very good air seal can be made against the head.
