Question: Is this headphone good for tracking vocal recording without bleeding into the mic?
- asked on Jan 8, 2024
Answer: These are semi-open headphones which means some audio will bleed outside of the headphones. For tracking vocals a set of closed back headphones will prevent leakage.

I feel bad being so harsh, but these are really poor headphones, even on sale. I am no stranger to "flat" headphones, that's what you want when you are mixing/mastering. The thing is, these aren't just flat, they are totally lifeless. Everything from the build quality to the audio quality feels absolutely cheap and uninspired. I will never purchase AKG headphones again.

Kelly Spriggs from the L&M store downtown Edmonton recommended these headphones to me when asked which ones would be best for mixing both acoustic sources and thickly layered electronic music. I cannot thank him enough. On that day, following Kelly's advice, I spent over an hour at that L&M store comparing all the headsets available there - K240 MK II always came on top. Not that I did not trust Kelly, I just wanted to make sure that we were on the same wavelength. Were we ever! These headphones are awesome in that they offer a very transparent and clear, natural sound - use them and you will most likely hear things you have not heard before in your mix. They do not lie.

I got my first pair of AKG 240's back in 1980!! I just gave them to my son for his stereo.......and they still work perfectly!!!!! Bought a new pair for myself without hesitation. There is a reason these are the standard in recording studios, and the preferred headphones for people who love their music. Do your ears a favour and get a pair. They will literally give you a lifetime of service and enjoyment.

I usually pick up headphones after having tested them thoroughly, but this time I went along with a detailed recommendation by one of the L&M staff at their Edmonton 107 Avenue store - and have never regretted that "shortcut". These are superclean headphones, which are perfect for audio editing and mastering. Their sound fidelity is second to none, they are actually a very helpful mastering too, more so that they are extremely comfortable due to their design and very modest weight. I recommend them without hesitation.

I got these headphones for christmas last year and was instantly blown away by their purity. There is no distortion of the sound at all. They are great for referencing your mixes and listening to music on high quality systems. A word of warning is that if your music is not well mixed or mastered they will make the imperfections noticeable because of their transparency and fidelity. On the other hand well mixed and mastered music really shines on these cans. All in all I love these headphones and their quirky but still cool looking design!

I've had these headphones for roughly a year now, and I can say that these are the most comfortable full size headphones I've ever had in my collection. They're light and sit firmly. I can use these comfortably throughout the day without any kind of pressure point or head ache. I've used Grados, ATs, Senns, etc, but these are without a doubt the best I've had for comfort. Sound quality wise, they're slightly lighter on the low end than most others I've had, but overall fidelity is well worth the sub-200 price tag. I have a marginally larger than average head size. For those of you who motorcycle for comparison, I fit a medium Arai Vector and large Shoei helmets comfortably.

Good headphones. Great sound with a very clear punch with a good headphone amp. I use them mostly connected to a TC Electronics Desktop Konnekt 6 to the laptop which really makes them sparkle. Somewhat painful when wearing them for extended periods or maybe that's just because of my fat head. Kinda goofy looking. I think next time I might opt for the good old Sony MDR-7506 instead. Overall no real complaints though.
