I like the amount of bass from the SR850 btw. Although they do seem to lack some on the more bass heavy tracks I have.
If you want try to change the sound of your SR850 (for better or worse) get some Velour ear pads.
You can find generic Velour ear pads for $15, on eBay, all the listed ear pads use the same size ear pads.
The Samson SR850, AKG K240/241/270/271 and Superlux HD681, HD-699, HD668B (all use the same size ear pad).
You might also try for some real leather ear pads.
If you do decide to "upgrade" from the SR850 headphones, wait until the last 3 or 4 months of the year, that usually when you get the lowest sale prices on headphones.
