AKG are a great make.

I always buy Bowers & Wilkins but they are rather expensive. I only ever buy "manufacturer refurbished" as you can usually save at least 25%.
I got a "like new" pair.  Didn't save that much - only $10 - but I discovered that usually when something is sold "used" on Amazon, it is not used at all.

Refurbished. Quite often that just means someone tried them and sent them back to the manufacturer or vendor.

Sennheisers are the bomb.  My ex bought me a wonderful set for Xmas many years ago and they still work. They're expensive, but even the lower-priced Senns are good.

The most popular ones, HD600 and HD650, have a very similar sound signature that is not for everyone. The upper frequency range is somewhat muted and for older folks or people with tinnitus, it can sound like they have very little in the treble area. Their HD700 and HD800 are better in that area but are also a lot more expensive.

Play Natural Science while you're wearing them. The beginning always freaks me out when it sounds like water flowing into my ears.

I will do that.  I have already noticed that I am hearing things in songs I never picked up before.
