I may be on the headphone hunt again soon. I like circumaural phones with pivoting cups because they are easy to quickly take off and they stay put when I set them down flat on the cups.
The pair I use at work have held up a while but I recently had to make a repair on the headband and don't know how long it will hold. They are Realistic Pro II, a rebranded Koss Pro-something-or-other.
They were built before 89 so the lifetime warranty does not apply. Because of this they already contain transplanted drivers.
Prowling Ebay I see several generations in the Pro 4 family. What's the difference between A, AA and AAA?
