Yeah, I finally broke down and bought my first set of brand new headphones since (oh, good gawd...) somewhere around 1987. My previous phones were a classic set of Sennheiser HD424s. They still work, but the cushions disintegrated years ago. I've been using a pair of crappyish Sony street-style headphones with absolutely no bottom end. These Sennheiser HD212 Pro cans have bass to spare.
