Question about AKG K 240 Studio Professional Headphones
Purchase time: 2006
When did the problem appear: 8 months later
Type of use: 80% loud live performance, 10% recording, 10% mixing
Detail of problem: First there was sudden loss in the high end and then the right side has gone completely dead. There is sound in the left with weak high frequency. It happened in the span of 3 or 4 days.
I also have a pair of K66 which was put into similar usage. It's still working fine.
It's difficult to say exactly what the problem is without being able to actually test them with a meter.
Unlike speakers (where you have a separate woofer & tweeter) the headphones only have a single driver per ear, so the loss of high frequency is unlikely to be a driver problem.
The place I would start looking at is the lead. Damage to the lead (or rather the internal conductor) or the plug can often result in a drop out of high frequncies.
The K240's are not discontinued, but you might be able to still pick up a replacement lead.
Hope this helps,
