    Been using these (no longer made) for 15 years now need to replace, they cost then £150, I should think quality, performance etc moved on since then. I use them for classical and jazz with 15 year old Arcam Alpha 9 amp.

    Replacement must be circumaural closed back, comfotable but appearance not important. Budget £200 to £350. The 265's have been good and I want same or better performance, I do not know the tec spec of the old pair, Anyone got any suggestions and does anyone know the equivalent Sennheiser product forthe old one.

    Would I experience a significant improvement if I used a headphone amp, not prepared to spend too much on one, sayy about £200.

    Thanks - citizenpaul.
