Do you find that the elevated upper bass ruins your listening pleasure? But as always, each to their own.

I think those K240's are still priced at £52.

It's the low bass SPL when I said about light on bass. I could do with a bit more when I'm listening to my UB40 albums. But that said most of the time I'm happy with the headphones. I can't compare the new HD600s with the old ones as i've have never had them or listen to them (old ones) over long period of time

You might like the extra upper bass. I guess it tries to compensate for the lack of very low bass SPL. I did not like how it was unable to reproduce the correct tonality of some instruments. I am fussy however. Try it, just don't pay too much.

The HD600 is a classic for a reason. It’s made a lot of people very happy for decades now. It’s not perfect, and I agree with Ash about the upper bass being punchy. It was my first high quality headphone and was a revelation. I also agree with secondhand. The secondhand market on headphones is massive and you’ll be able to find something excellent. 
All the bets,
Mick.

The 600's have been claimed to have neutral midrange/tone. Do you agree with such claim?
