AKG studio monitor series that are very popular as monitor headphones for recording studios.
Among them, particularly popular are the "K240 MKII" "K271 MKII" "K240 Studio" We will compare these three models!
I evaluated the difference in the sound and the features of the sound in five stages.
A successor to the AKG "K240 Studio" Studio Monitor series of semi-open air type headphones, which is the world's standard monitor headphone.
The sound is mild compared to "K271 MKII". The sound field has depth and is easy to look over, and it is characterized by a natural sound that does not make you tired of listening. There are no quirks in the sound, so it's well organized, and making it good for any genre of music. The fast strokes of electric guitars are well-knitted, and it also reproduced the thick sound body nuances of the wood bass . "K240 MKII" is most suitable for wide use from monitoring to music appreciation.
The top model in the AKG Studio Monitor series. It produces a sound that is true to the original, as the sound quality is not flavored by the headphones. The sound field is a little narrower than the "K240 MKII" and does not give priority to the sense of presence, so it is easy to determine the location and balance in which a sound is heard, and sound can be monitored accurately.
There is tightness in the lower range than the semi-open type "K240 MKII", and the outline of the sound is very clear. It works well with live instruments such as violins, and a precise sound with tension is also reproduced clearly. If you are looking for monitor headphones with which you want to distinguish between a good sound and a bad sound, the "K271 MKII" is recommended.
The “K240 Studio” is the classic semi-open air monitor headphones. There are many people who change their ear pads many times and still love the headphones. The color of the housing and the parts of the headband are colored in gold, and the retro classic feel feels good anywhere.
Compared to "K240 MKII", you can hear a calm and elegant sound as a whole. It has a flat character with and almighty, flattering sound, but if you really have to choose, they might be better for jazz and pop where you can hear the glossiness of the music. You can enjoy the brilliance and depth of realism that the K240 MKII does not have.
