Replacement for HD 212 Pro?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just got a Sennheiser HD 280 and while it's good, I failed to realized how different circumaural would be compared to semi-circumaural. I (obviously) can't hear myself talk while gaming or over skype, and it's hard to judge the volume of my voice. It is really becoming a problem for me.

My HD 212 Pro is getting beat up so they need to be replaced. While it would be nice to have another pair of these I guess, they aren't made anymore it seems (?). Are there any spiritual successors to these? (Semi-circumaural, good bass?) I have no problem going up into ~$110 for price. Thanks.

The Sennheiser HD 202 II are the direct replacement for the 212's, the bass volume is lower though and you can get them for 30-70 dollers. If you want something better sounding with better bass for your budget get the PX 100 II's ($100) , they are supra aural though and leak alot of sound, hopefully that wont be an issue.
