I really feel it's up to the user even though the thread says otherwise.  As long as people mention which they used to own and what they currently own, I don't see a problem with it.  I personally don't list anything I used to own because I don't feel I can compare them fair enough given Amp/DAC upgrades and not remembering the sound signature well enough.  To each his own, of course.

From experience with DT880, Q701, HD600, and more,

I feel that the ER4S is more accurate. more balanced. more neutral.

I feel it is up to the driver to determine how fast he will race down the highway even though the speed limit says otherwise.  I wonder how this argument would go down in traffic court. :tongue:

 

 

I love anarchy.

If you want to start a new thread listing every headphone you've owned , tried, etc - go ahead.  The idea of this one is to list the ones you own.  It's also good because you can revisit it as you make changes.  Listing every headphone you've ever owned or heard just becomes too much.  I've owned 20-30 headphones.  I've heard many more than that.  But it's far more meaningful if I just list the 4 or 5 that I have.

Again, I don't see the problem unless "because I said so" is rationale. But whatever, I'm not going to convince you to think otherwise if that's your position.

 

Either way, there are no headphones I "used to have" that I listened to extensively except for those terrible $15 Skullcandy IEMs from years ago.

 

When my CHC Silverado headphones arrive, I'm going to listen to those for a while before I post my rankings.

ZMF x Vibro (it isn't the most technically proficient, but its sound signature just works for me at the moment)

Hifiman HE500

ZMF V1

Hifiman RE600

Audio Technica AD2000 (I'm having trouble selling this...I'm tempted to keep it but I need the money)

Monster Turbine Pro Copper (Edited from the original version. I really like these and the Golds after digging them out again)

Shure SE530

Monster Turbine Pro Gold

Yamaha HP3

DUNU DN1000

Modded PortaPro

Beats Pro

AKG K271

ACS T15

Realistic Pro 50

Velodyne vTrue

DUNU Tai Chi

AKG K181DJ

 

The rest I haven't used in so long I'm not bothering to list them because I barely remember how they sound.

 

Revised list:

 

Audio Technica AD2000

Hifiman HE500

ZMF x Vibro

ZMF V1

Hifiman RE600 

Monster Turbine Pro Copper

Shure SE530

Monster Turbine Pro Gold

Yamaha HP3

DUNU DN1000

Modded PortaPro

Beats Pro

AKG K271

ACS T15

Realistic Pro 50

Velodyne vTrue

DUNU Tai Chi

AKG K181DJ

 

I don't know why, but I've suddenly become enamored with the AD2000's weirdness.

Don't know, think I have a thing for warm sounding, closed headphones. 
I'd highly recommend you trying out the NAD VISO HP50 then - seriously.

the ER-4 is incredibly linear and clean, it's one of the best pieces of audio reproduction gear period, by a very wide margin

 

also there's the comfort issue to consider with the LCD-2, assuming he isn't ranking by sound only

Yep, I prefer the treble and mids on the ER4S to all my other headphones.

 

I find the bass to be generally adequate for my needs but then again I'm not a basshead by any means.

1.- Audeze LCD-2

2.- BD DT770

3.- Grado SR80i

4.- BD DT880

5.- AKG K701

6.- rest of them

 

This is pretty much the amount time I use them list.

That's very interesting that you use/prefer the DT770s over the DT880s and the K701.  I'm by no means questioning it but just thought it was interesting.

Hahah, I know that the K701 and DT880s are more detailed, open-sounding and that stuff, but my main headphone for almost every genre is the Audeze, the electronic, movie and series master is the DT770 (less weight, punchy bass, etc.), the DT880s and K701s are only used for classical and OSTs.
