Back in the 90s when I worked at Thoroughbred Music I won a sales contest, a set of AKG K-44 headphones. Since I already had a pair of good studio headphones, which I still have and use for recording, I kept these in the box until this morning. Man, these sound really good and I can't hear any of the non-stop talking that going on here in the office. Why did I wait this long? New headphones at work = sanity restored.
