Right now I did some research, since I bought my
AKG K 240 DF around 30 years ago.

It's discontinued.

I know that studios today have better headphones, but they are very
expensive and all I ever used in studios only one time need to clunk on
the floor and they are borked. The AKG has a (relatively ;) less good
sound quality, but anyway it's very good as a reference and the one I
own survived, other headphones I owned or used in studios get broken.

Are there still some durable headphones for studio usage? AFAIK for the
German Rundfunk they switched a long time ago from the AKG I own, to
those better once, that will not last very long.
