For the time being I use my Bel Canto DAC 2.5 to drive my TH900's.  

 

The Bel Canto will be replaced my LH Labs Geek Pulse-Xf + LPS that I have already ordered, but it will not arrive until this summer.

 

I am sure you will love the TH900's.

Nice sounds like my Schiit stack will do just fine then.

Absolutely.  I think it will be a great setup for you.

2) Klipsh X11i - still new to me and very close in performance to the 551, prefer the 551 but X11 are my travel choice sounds Ok from portables, use it with Comply T100s on a plane but this makes the presentation too dark for my normal listening tastes so the single dome silicons sit on there most of the time, my amp is away so not sure how much difference an amp makes
3) Allesandro MS1 - one of my oldest HPs still love it but open backs do not suit my listening habits/environment, also prefers amplification.
4) Shure E2 - up until recently my travel HP, surpassed by some margin by the first 2 on the list, find it tiring when listening for long periods especially on cmoy.

Have lots of disposable buds, sport headphones and bits but nothing worth mention.
amping the X10's helped a TON, and they respond very well to EQ. Idk if this is true with the X11, but id assume they're very similar.

A Non-audiophile Ranking

 

1. B&W P7: Great and stylish headphones. Unbelievable clarity, the bass is accurate and is also extremely comfortable to wear for long durations. Tested the Sennheiser Momentums, Beyerdynamic T1p, KEF M500 and Sony MDR-7520; the B&W P7 beats all of them. 
I cannot wait to get the FiiO X5 as I was given a demonstration alongside an amplifier, and it generated the most beautiful sound I have ever heard. 

 

2. Apple Earpods: Very good headphones for the price. Yes, I put them above the MF-100. The MF-100's were that uncomfortable!

 

3. Musical Fidelity MF-100: These were just horrible. The clamping pressure was the worst on any headphone I have ever used (including cheap headphones). They were extremely uncomfortable, and I do not recommend them. I had to send them back as they were putting far too much pressure on my ears. As for the sound, it was far from great. Stay away from these headphones. 

 

I am hoping to add more headphones to my collection.

1. Denon 2000's  (Wish they were lighter)

2. Beyerdynamic 990 (Could be favorite if they were more dynamic)

3. AKG 404 (Put cheapo flat foam pads on these and they are perfect portable/gym headphones)

4. Audio Technica ad700's (Only really good for gaming)

5. Sennheiser 555's (Artificial sounding version of ad700 that doesn't do any thing above average)

6. $2 cheap airplane headphones

7. Grado s80 (absolutely hate these)

I have a sneaking suspicion the Audeze LCD2 is about to hit #2 soon though. It'd be #1 but I have a real emotional connection to the M100s.

Interesting comment. I personally haven't heard the LCD2 but i usually see them listed high. How are you amping them?

I tested them off of a Burson Conductor and they were definitely fantastic. It actually took two tries to like them because attempt #1 was going in expecting a "bass heavy" headphone and I was really underwhelmed. But going in realizing that it's more of a "full and even" headphone they immediately made my ears smile. Like I said, the reason the M100s will likely stay at #1 is on one hand I just have a real emotional and visceral response to them, plus we're talking $300 vs $900 and I honestly believe price/performance ratio matters.
