Best (vintage) headphones for Vinyl

Hi Guys,

I have an Lenco L76 connected to my JVC Stereo REceiver RX 6001RGD with a pair of B&W DM110 speakers and a subwoofer.
Now I also want to listen to the music through a headphone. So I am looking for a good (vintage, second hand) headphone? What is the most - affordable - best I can get atm? Can you guys give me some suggestions on vintage second hand headphones? (How it's compared to new ones?)

AKG K240's have been around since the mid-70's, sound nice, and you can still buy them brand new. For less than they cost 15 years ago.

I currently have an Sennheiser HD202 and a HD 205. Do you think this will be improvement when I buy the AKG240? I'm really a sound freak wanna have good sound. What is the best headphone you've ever heard that is affordable?

Don't know about your Sennheisers. I run a studio so I'm more concerned with whether they'll fry or break than how they sound. Best of luck.

The 240 is definitely a step up from those two Sennheisers.

More ideas here.
