And no bass


Precisely what you'd want from Studio headphones
Heat for price, although if you can stretch another £18 you can get the K240 Studios on Amazon - these come with a wider response range and more usefully, a detachable cable.
I've had mine for about 15 years now and the cable has been replaced once.

Brilliant headphones with a very long cable.

K240 are not an option as they are open backed (semi open)
Bought as a present and my old man loves them.

Fair enough - I only tend to use them in my office where I am not disturbed, so don't suffer from any (semi-)open back noise issues on the whole.

No it isn't. You want a flat response. The K240's roll off big time < 100Hz

Ordered for £27 (managed to get £5 off for installing Amazon Assistant).

Thanks OP heat added.
Bought them for ~23 on last amazon warehouse 20% off. Really can not fault them at the price, comfortable and good clean and neutral sound- not as good when I attempted to use them at work to listen to music as very flat soudn, but great for studio use
"Mix and master your tracks..."

No. Editing, and playback testing, sure. But you shouldn't be "mixing" and "mastering" using any headphones, the EQ and stereo imaging is different to speakers, and will give a false result.

Before someone replies "but not everyone can afford quality bookshelf monitors and room acoustic treatment"... OK, mix with just headphones then. Or mix just on laptop speakers. Or mix using an Amazon Echo. Though bear in mind that it won't be optimised for the widest range of playback devices.

Maybe stating the obvious but just get a decent equalizer. When I first got my K92 for work I installed EqualizerAPO and Peace Equalizer. Although now I actually prefer them flat.
Heat added for a good deal!
....just sucks I haven't really got the cash this month for it
Heat added. Had a pair of these for over 18 months now and they are great.
any better than my m50's? cheers
How do these compare with the hyperx cloud on on sound quality?
i bought these a few weeks ago and love them, absolutely spot on.

these plus a umc22 , laptop,reaper and my sub ray 4 bass= nice budget home studio situation.
Great sound, flat response so ideal for mixing, not much lower end though so be careful any bass junkies

"Flat" response doesn't exist ("accurate" response is more "accurate"), and headphones are not ideal for mixing.

i am between this and either the cloud 2 or alpha, will probably go for this and a cheap clip on mic as i believe the sound quality of these will be superior to the clouds
is Bluedio T5 better then this?
I am very happy with my Superlux HD681 posted on hukd for around £11. They are very similar looking to K240 but uglier
beware of AKG with straps like these, the plastic that covers the elastic band has poor quality stitching and it comes off, and the plastic is so hard that stitching yourself with a sewing needle is really really hard!

I have recently been looking at the k240 mk2s which I think are similar to the studios. I like the neutral respone but have some questions, if you will indulge?
1/ I want to use them for mainly listening to my mini hifi and my TV. Will I need a headphone amp because I have read they are quiet?
2/ Would these semi open ones leak more than on ear options?
3/ How comfortable are they? My Koss porta pros are really painful when I wear my specs?

thanks

1. I use them on my computer fornthe majority of the time and also for my hifi. I hadn't actually noticed they were too quiet - although I have been using them for so long maybe I am used to it.
2. They certainly will leak more than closed back. I use them in my office though at home so don't have any one to confirm how loud exactly
3. I find them very comfy, using them for hours at a time, even when I have to don my glasses. I do have to remove them every so often as they get rather warm from body heat.
thanks
Bought for my daily guitar practice. Hope they re better than my Jabra.
