I'm looking for new sealed headphones. I'm currently using Sennheiser HD 280s, but would like more bass, and find the pleather earpads get uncomfortable during long sessions. I want good sound, but am willing to compromise some for noise abatement (I'll be using these on planes and in cafes) and comfort (I've heard good things about the sound of the Audio-Technica M50, but the pleather earpads don't work for me--anyone know if there's a way to sub in some plush earpads, the way you can put Shure SRH 940 earpads on an SRH 840?). The AKG K 272 and DT770 600 ohm seem like they'd offer a lot of what I'm looking for, and I can get them for about the same price. Anyone have some comments? Thanks!
