Question about AKG K 240 Studio Professional Headphones

Wiring code for the jack?

I lent these to a buddy of mine so he could use them for mixdown, and his room mate borrowed them to listen to music - then wasn't paying attention and walked too far from the stereo and broke the jack at the end of the cable.

I got a new, gold plated stress relieved 1/8" stereo jack from Radio Shack that I want to solder onto the end, but I don't know where to solder them. There's a red, white, and yellow wire. I could probably just order another wire - it's detachable from the headset - but I'd rather not, considering I'm all of five minutes away from having a useable set of headphones again.

    I just went thru this; Tip = yellow wire for right ear; Ring = red wire for left ear; Sleeve = white wire for common/ground. Unfortunately, I had to rewire due to previous incorrect information.

You're right on the code, with the exception of the right and left. I'm an AKG dealer and spoke to their service department. Here goes:


To confirm this, I used a multimeter in continuity mode and tested them. This code is 100% correct.

    Pertaining to a AKG K 240 studio headphone, this information is incorrect. It reverses the stereo field. You're a dealer?

WHITE is GROUND (back sleeve on pin plug;
RED is LEFT (mid sleeve on pin plug;
YELLOW is RIGHT (pin plug tip).

I read that Apple removed the headphone jack, so how do I listen to music, videos, and podcasts on my iPhone 7 Plus?

iPhone 7 and Plus models have removed the headphone jack. So, how to listen to music on iPhone 7/Plus? There're three ways you can try:
1. Listen to Music with Wireless AirPods - $159
2. Listen to Music with Wired Lighting Headphone
• Audeze EL-8 Titanium ($799.95)
• Philips Fidelio M2L, $199.99;
• Audeze Sine, $499;
• Sony MDR-1ADAC, $399.99.

3. Listen to Music with Headphones with the help of Adapter
For the uninitiated users who take DAC lighting headphones too clumsy or expensive, three alternative solutions here:
• Apple EarPods ($29) + Apple Lightning to 3.5mm Headphone Jack Adapter ($9) + USB DAC (additional purchase )
• Apple EarPods + Apple Lightning to USB 3 Adaptor for connecting unpowered USB DACs ($39)
• Apple EarPods + iPhone Lightning Dock with DAC and audio out jack ($39.00)

Do I need to connect the Xenyx 1202 to an amp?

If you are the only person listening, you can use headphones with the headphone jack. Otherwise you will have to use some sort of amplification and speakers,e.g. P.A., stereo etc. I'm using a Xenyx 1222 FX and am quite happy with it.

the problem is you are only recording on one side if you are using only one source, try using dual mics (with a audio interface with at least 2 inputs) or just record your tracks in stereo, then change the playback prefference to mono for listening purposes, then change back to stereo before mixdown
