Need to upgrade my headphones!!

I have had AKG 240's for decades. The worst aspect of these phones is the design of the ear cups and how the adjustment slider can not be tightened once it becomes loose and then it's just headphones down to your jaws with no way to keep them on level with your ears!

What headphones for tracking would you recommend that are great sounding over the AKG?

Depends if you want open or closed headsets. I would go open for best results (unless they are for use in a recording room where youll hear them)

I always pioneer the Beyerdynamic DT 990, it comes with both open or closed options. FANTASTIC sound and quality, not to mention looks and price. Give them a listen. They are adored by all the studio engineers, friends etc I know, as well as myself.

Or, if you want to go nuts, the AKG K1000 (discontinued, hard to find) for 2000$ and a Grace Headphone amp for another 1700$, and you will experience ear sex.
