 AKG K240STUDIONow we will have look at an alternative, the AKG K240STUDIO.


Audio-Technica ATH-M30x



+ Superior comfort
+ Enhanced mid-range frequency
+ Foldable
+ Extra watt input power
+ Sound-isolation and good audio

+ Studio-quality sound
+ Extra comfortable
+ Uniquely patented design
+ Stylish look
+ Open back headphones


The extra power really tickles the midranges of music just a little bit better. Each headphone has all around crystal clear sound and are great for making out individual instruments when listening to music. The fact that the headphones are foldable may give them a slight edge over the other Audio-Technica designs. These headphones are really comfortable and cool looking - they're some of the best headphones for mixing and mastering.

These are designed fully for the studio and offer an interesting sound with the open back headphones design. That allows more ambient noise to creep in. It's not everybody's forte but for some, it's an added feature. You'll get the sound you need with these open back headphones and they will make mixing and mastering an absolute treat.
