Oh, that is much better!
This time, I took much longer finding a good set of phones. Most importantly, I wanted a set of phones that did not presuppose a certain sound. The old phones wanted to play up the treble and the bass. So, plopping "headphone audiophile" found me a good variety of headphones. (Do note that audiophile advice is something like slashdot advice. The outliers are pretty far out there.)
The new phones are incredibly even. More importantly, my ears don't rebel from using them. Yay. New headphones for watching BSG.
I have no idea what I'll do with the old ones.
