The HD 419 is a great upgrade to the 201.  I really think the 201 is a great budget beater can but the 419 are quite a few levels higher.

The 419's are the darkest sounding of the 400 series tho. The have a darker sound sig then the rest. Kind of what everyone calls the Senn Veil. Everything has a laid back sound but it is really a nice sound. The Bass isn't massive but has a nice little punch, The mids are dead center, and the highs are very clear without being harsh. Comfort wise they are great as well.

Velours, can't get better!!!   And the price you got them for, great buy!!!

The pad are easily changed. If you look closely at where the pads and the housing meet you will see small tabs going around the outside of the housing.  Just gently push inwards (The pads) and slide the pad out from behind the little tabs.  I think there are a total of 10 or so tabs, Once you get 1 or 2 tabs free the pads will slip right out.  To install just reverse. Just go slowly so you don't snap a tab.  Also FYI the 400 series pads fit the 201 perfect.  So you can put the 419/439's on the 201's.  Major upgrade to comfort. And they only cost $10 from Senn.

18$ from senn here :/ That isn't too cheap compared to the price of the HD 201 in the first place.

for a really long time...lifetime warranty, too.

 

 

Also +1 on the Beyer DT 235's

Wait? The Koss PortaPros have lifetime warranty?

Yeah, I have been returning my portapros to be fixed for years. The bad news is they are NOT durable, good news is they ARE faithful to their lifetime warranty. It's pretty cool. The sound quality of the portapros is also excellent for an inexpensive headphone.

Wow! Never knew that. All things considered that's a pretty great deal.

I highly recommend giving the Koss KSC75 a try. They can be bought for less than $15 on Amazon and I must say, they are a truly amazing headphone, especially at this price. I have a pair of Bose QC15 that I use for noise cancelling, and I honestly listen to my KSC75's more often because I think they actually sound better, and the QC15's are $300 headphones. Now the KSC75 don't give  great noise cancellation because they are a semi-open headphone, but I don't think you will mind, I wear them on the bus all the time and they aren't too bad if you just turn the music up a little bit. They are pretty comfortable as well but that may not be true for everybody. Can't really go wrong with a $15 dollar pair of headphones though, if ya don't like them, then oh well, they were only $15!

Also, I would like to add in that they leak a lot. I was listening to them in class one day and everybody in the room knew what song i was listening to, lol.

Another vote for the Koss KSC75. They sound better than the Porta Pro and are cheaper too. I just bought another KSC75, with the Parts Express headband, from Amazon for a $23 and change.
