Hmm this is going to be a short list - just what I own?


Don't laugh at the KSC-35 being above the DT770. The DT770 is a necessity when I can't use the SR200 (late at nite, etc) So otherwise I'd be using the SR200. The KSC-35 just does portable cans right, period. I'd put the ATH-CM3 as 4) but they are my wife's.

(Out of the stuff currently in my stash)

Sound quality:

1) Stax SR-404
2) Stax SR-001 Mk II
3) Etymotic Research ER-4P
4) Sennheiser HD590

Most frequently used:

1) HD590
2) ER-4P
3) SR-404
4) SR-001

Interesting trend there, eh? The 590's are computer headphones and hence see the most use. The ER-4P never leaves my pocket, and is therefore second. The 404 and 001 are reserved for serious listening, and unfortunately, I only have so much time for that

10. everything else...

Alessandro MS-2: fairly clear, energetic sounding but laid back at the same time, tight bass but not very prominent on my setup, dry and bright mids (IMO), not overly forgiving and dry highs with fairly good extention with bowls.
Koss KSC-35: slightly bloated bass, dark mids, rolled off highs - BUT HELLA FUN!! I find these more enjoyable with Rock music than on the MS-2, but they dont do other types of music as good.
Audio Technica ATH-EM7 bass is only "there" when pressed against ears or when wearing a beanie, veiled vocals, prominent upper mids, distorted sounding, extremely rolled off highs. Selling ASAP.
