Report Any headphone suggestions? in Music Composition & Production Posted August 30, 2013 On topic of AKG k240, I have a question:What's the main difference between AKG k240 and AKG k240 MKII? As far as I saw, they have the same attributes... I don't see what justifies the extra 100 dollars aside of a design change. There are 2 big changes: 1) MK2 has a slightly different fit, it is supposedly more comfortable and a bit easier to get the correct sound out of them. 2) MK2 comes with 2 cables, one coiled, one not. The drivers are the same, the sound is the same (provided you have them on snug). To be honest, the regular K240 studios at $85 are a great deal.
