I bought in octomber 2012 a pair of XB600. After a while, the synthetic leather on the earpads started to wear out, until about a fourth of it was peeling off the earpad. Since there's no way of glueing it back, I decided to rip it off completely. Little did I know that the synthetic leather was soundproof and it was the one thing directing the bass to my ears. Now, since it is gone, my XB600 are practically useless.
Therefore, I need a recommendation for new headphones, rich in bass, for about 80-100 dollars, or 60-75 euros. Also, something not from sony, as xb400,xb600,xb800 all have the same type of earpads. Maybe an Sennheiser 439? Philips Citiscape downtown or Philips Oneill?
Sorry for the possible mispelling of some words, I'm not from an english-speaking country.
Any help is appreciated! :)
