Which are your oldest headphones?
do you actually use it? how many years it has?

Late 90s MDR-CD870s which I find are still the nicest to wear. Slightly recessed in the highs but great up-scale potential for what they are. I purchased them new 1998. Cost? 100-200 bucks. Great to sleep in!
A pair of Sennheiser HD410SL's that was passed down to me; had to change the pads cause the old ones were really brittle. For the longest time I couldn't properly amp them (they're 600ohms) so I didn't understand how half-decent they were until I got a Fiio E9...
My HD580, which was already old when I bought it used 9 years ago. It's probably closing in on 20 years old. I did replace the drivers with HD650 drivers though. The original drivers suffered from soft springs on their cable connections which constantly caused the audio to cut out. Sennheiser is said to have fixed the spring problem in their later drivers, and my HD650 drivers have been working flawlessly for many years now. It has been my main headphone until I bought a brand new HD600 a couple weeks ago.
I also still have a Grado SR-60 I bought 10 years ago. I take it out every now and then, but I always go back to the Sennheisers.
My oldest headphone by far (although not the one I've owned the longest) is the Jecklin Float Model II. That thing must be from the 80s. I keep it more as a curiosity than as an actual listening device lol .
