 What he said.  I spent time setting up my media system throughout the house but to play music I just want a simple set it up and go and that's what AIMP3 offers.  It uses WASAPI and looks great.  
Lindsey Stirling - The Phoenix Modded Fostex TH900 on a rooted HTC 10. Using Viper audio and dolby atmos. Great phone and software for on the go.
Yes!   I just bought a pair of TH900 that were modified by the previous owner.  It's got what's called the zolkis-mod.  It appears to be a hybrid of Lawton's work.  I've never heard a stock pair but do own another pair of Fostex (Denon AH-D7000).  Needless to say the mids and upper end are so much more lush on the TH900.  Feel free to read my lengthy review comparing the two....
Sennheiser HD600/HD650 (although I prefer the HD600).  I personally dislike the sound of the HD800.  This way you have a closed headphone (Fostex) and then an open (Sennheiser).
 Foobar2k is still a clunky interface and doesn't scale down as well.  Unless things have changed in the past two years since I last touched it (I doubt it) the program was clunky.  Good audio quality but clunky interface.
Currently I have an Audio-GD FUN I bought several years ago.  I use it primarily for PC FLAC/MP3 playback.  It's my speaker system for my desktop PC as I have no speakers connected to the computer (it's all headphone output).  Personally, I think the system sounds fine with the headphones I'm driving on it (Fostex TH900, Sennheiser HD600) but do recognize technology changes with time.  I just bought the Fostex and they sound amazing on this setup but just wondering if I'm...
if you like WinAMP (I used to be a purist since the beginning in the mid/late 90s) you may want to take a look at AIMP3.  Google it.  More matured WinAMP and has WASAPI output.
Currently I use AIMP3.   Used to be a WinAMP die hard since the late 90s.  Then I moved to foobar2k for a bit.  I missed the music app being a small portion of the desktop (whereas most applications today take up the entire screen).  AIMP3 has WASAPI output, sounds great to me, and looks as close to what WinAMP looked like.  
okay I read the thread, I agree with EQ to an extent.  It's great for subtle tweaks to bring out more things (or remove things) but if you have to heavily EQ a headphone to get the sound signature you're looking for it's probably not the best headphone.  I use most of my EQ to get more bass out of my headphones.  It's incredible how much bass you can get out of a pair of HD600 by running it around 10dB hot in the lower spectrum and maintain the lush mids and highs.  It...
I'll go back and read the comments in a minute and update my post if needed but to answer your question briefly...   NO   I used to live up north where jude lives so I've had the luxury of listening to a good number of the high end headphones.  Audzee, HiFiMan, Stax, Grado, Sennheiser, etc. etc. etc.     There's a sweet spot to all types of hobbies and a law of diminishing returns at some point.  The only two headphones I've heard that I don't own that I felt really...
