Sennheiser HD420 headphones, early 1980's

Saw these in a Hi Fi shop window in Birmingham for about £32 back in the early 1980's when £32 was worth something. Characterised by a complete absense of deep bass, even when connected directly to the loudspeaker terminals. Can't hold a candle to my more recent and in real terms very much cheaper HD490's. Such is progress.
