    I use two pairs all the time - a version of the AKG 240 and some 
Sony 7506's. Both are good headphones, and popular, but they sound very 
different. I would strongly thing the 240's are better for classical 
work, but they do not eliminate as much room noise as the Sony 
headphones. Not sure if that is important in your environment.

    As for the Sennheisers, I would suggest that you make sure they are 
comfortable to your head and ears. I have never been as comforable with 
them on as I am with the ones I own. If headphones aren't comfortable 
then you won't be happy wearing them.

    Good luck finding a set that works well for you.
