My beloved AKG K 240 DF headphones have died after fifteen years of use (and some abuse by several of my children!). No amount of soldering the joints have been able to solve the symptoms they have been giving me, and seeing as it's near Christmas, I was going to put some new ones on my "wish" list. Any suggestions as to what models to look at first? I will be going to a music store soon to do some listening tests, I just wanted some ideas as to what models to watch (or "watch out!") for.
