These Headphones Are Studio Standards!It's not often you call a pair of headphones legendary, but if you're familiar with AKG's headphones... you know the word's right. The 'phones you're checking out right now are the K 240 MK II, the MK II bit makes them the follow-up to the original, wildly successful, studio standard K240S headphones. You've probably seen those original gold-ringed beauties on the covers of albums, in music videos, and over the ears of countless pros. But we're not talking about those, nope. We're talking about the NEW and IMPROVED rendition of the headphones studios swear by. Yep, the K 240 MK II... just when you thought AKG couldn't make 'em better, they did. Here's the scoop.
These headphones are built for the long haul. All-nighter sessions? Grab your cup of coffee, grab your AKG K 240 MK II headphones and you'll be good to go. The comfortable around-the-ear design doesn't put too much pressure on your ears, while the self-adjusting headband and leatherette and velvet earpads keep your ears happy as you listen to the mix. And, by the way, the AKG K 240 MK II headphones feature a semi-open design, which is great because it lets in a little air. That way you don't feel all closed off, and you keep a natural sense of space. It's great for singers who like to hear themselves in the room a bit to get their tone right. However you use them, you'll love them.
Time to talk connections? AKG includes a screw-on ¼" adapter, so you can plug these puppies into pro and consumer devices... not a problem. There are also a 10' detachable straight cable and a 16' coiled cable included. The detachability is cool, because if you know anything about headphones, you know that if anything's going to go... it's going to be the cable first. Here, you already have a built-in backup solution. But more importantly, you can always score a replacement if you need to... without shelling out change for replacement headphones. Nice.
