Worth it
07.01.2016
There are quite a few good qualities in these headphones with only minor drawbacks.

I tend to listen to high-definition music, 320 kbps and the likes.
What initially struck me when listening to music through these headphones is the quality. After owning cheap 15euro headphones for so long, I immediately noticed a huge increase in clarity, especially in the low-frequency spectrum.
These speakers have higher impedance than some and this causes them to be slightly less-loud, but they are still perfectly capable of drowning out any background noise, such as a TV or radio playing.
These headphones are also semi-open, meaning their sound-insulation isnt very high. This can be seen as good or bad, as you may not want others hearing your music, but it also means I can speak to others while the speakers are still on my ears

For comfort, I didnt give a fifth star for some minor reasons.
First, the removable audio jack extrudes quite a long way out of the bottom of the speaker, and sometimes snags on the collar of my coat. I dont mind this too much as having a removable jack at all is great for me, but still this is worth noting.
Secondly, the material used to form the speaker pads, while soft and easy on the skin, is leathery, meaning that if i wear the phones for a long duration, they will leave sweat-marks on the skin.

The rest of the build quality is very satisfactory, with self-adjusting headband and a good flexible, agile feel to the product as a whole- these will probably last a long time. These headphones are also very light, meaning they dont leave that annoying headphone-hair indent on my head when using them for hours.

So to sum up, Very good quality sound, Very comfortable (usually), durable.

Best headphones I ever had
Zeka, 05.05.2020
I may not be the most experienced person in relation to evaluating studio headphones, but I used a lot of different headphones in my life and these are the best I ever had.

I use these with Zoom G1 Four, for silent guitar practice, and I prefer this to a cheap amplifier. This is basically everyone one needs to practice guitar, great multi-effects device and a pair of great sounding headphones.

I particularly like that I can replace the cable if it's broken, which happens often on headphones.

They are very comfortable and I don't feel any discomfort wearing them for hours. I like that they are semi-open so I'm not completely isolated, and can still hear if someone is calling me.

I don't have any cons to these headphones, and I feel the price was great (they were discounted at 55 euro).

Impressed!
BuzzAlex, 17.06.2020
I was genuinely impressed with these headphones! Great sound and sturdy! i wore for hours with no discomfort in my ears or head!
The only "problem"-albeit a minuscule one- i have is that hair are sometimes caught between the tiny space between the metal of the casing and the plastic arm.
Other than that, my mind was blown!

Very comfortable and not tiring
kikodoze, 18.11.2019
Purchase Reason:
I bought these headphones because there were already many friends I knew who would always recommended me these headphones every time I asked which one should I buy.

Goal:
I have been using these AKG K240 for over a year, constantly, and my intention with them since the beginning was and is to mix and master my projects and various works that I am having. I was very happy to have bought these ones because they are so worth the price which is very affordable.

Comfort:
These headphones sound great and are not tiring to hear for hours on end because they are very comfortable and both the outside and inside cushions are very soft and this is crucial for musicians and sound technicians that want to work without getting frustated after using it.

Sound:
What immediately caught my attention on these headphones was that when listening to music, the clarity of all the songs I listened to was very prominent. Low end not exaggerated, and very well defined mediums and highs. Whether listening to acoustic music down to metal, the clarity and detail are all very well present in these headphones.
And getting it all for less than 100 € is very good deal.

Conclusion:
I conclude that these are the headphones that I use most, whether for leisure and even for mixing and mastering. They are very comfortable and I can stay with them for hours on end and not get tired.
There is nothing I didn't like about these headphones, they're simply amazing.
