I've been using Sennheiser HD 202 headphones at work for a couple years and finally got sick of their head-pinching discomfort. (I don't usually wear them for long periods, so it was only an occasional issue.)

I just received by Beyerdynamic DT 235 pair and am really enjoying them. Soft ear cups, less head squeeziness, airier treble (but not too much so) and more solid bass. Superior in every way.

It was already in that spot on my desk, and the lighting happened to be best there. smile

Congratulations on the new headphones. I would love to try a pair of Beyerdynamics at some point.

I just see the word "puppet" and it conjures up all these images of you making valuable use of your work time?

Shouldn't everyone have a boxing nun in his/her cubicle?

What is that 'L' on the left ear piece?

It's for Looser. There's a T on the right one.
