akg240s  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have had my akg 240s for over 20 years. They still are far and away the best sounding headsets ever. Only have one problem - the plastic webbing that rests on your head has broken in many places. Can anyone tell me how to get this repaired? I hate to throw these out for a piece of plastic.

HiFi listening, ragchewing, or DX contest  Time owned: more than 12 months
My "good old" AKG K240 headphones simply cannot be beat (ok, maybe by the Studio Monitor AKG 240's:). It's amazing what signals you can pick out of the noise with them. And they're also the most comfortable headphones I have ever used. Great value at a great price!

The only headphones I use.  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have been using AKG-K240 headphones for years now and
they are the only ones I use. I have mounted a Heil boom mike
to them and I use them on SSB and CW. They sound good,
cover my ear to help block out the shack noise and I can
wear them for entire contest weekend.

They also sound VERY good - I find that having the best sounding
headphones I can find works best for me - I want to hear everything
from my radio.

During the most recent ARRL DX contest I operated from a DX location.
My bags (includign the one with my AKG-K240 headphones) did not
show up until halfway through the weekend. I was using the station
owners Heil Pro-Set. When I swapped out the headphones I was
amazed at how bad the Pro-Set sounded. Next time the AKG's
and the voice keyer will be in my carry on bag.
