Thank you. That is in fact the Sennheiser I had referred to in my earlier post. Used to use it close to the satellite truck with the diesel engine running with virtually no ill effects (other than breathing in diesel fumes - For our European contributors, North American diesel is FAR more noxious than the European variety).
