What headphones were you using b4 you discovered head-fi/real headphones!

post #1 of 261
Thread Starter 
I was just thinking about how I can't believe the trash I used to listen on a while back. WOW. It just amazes me that I even got by... The ones I used most often were some panasonic buds that at the time I thought were excellent in comparison to all my other options. Of course, one of the drivers would go dead on the majority of my purchases just after a short time.





AND I used these a lot (as well as $30-40 various sonys). I thought $40 was insane to drop on headphones. heh



Then I found out about px100's. I guess that was kind of my gateway drug into this world of headphones...

I was using Shure e3c's before I discovered Head-Fi. Before those, I used the Sony MDR-A35G S2.

Yup, I borrowed those from a friend once and was amazed. At the time I thought they were top of the line and far too expensive as an option. (I didnt know about ebay or anything online)

Sennheiser HD212 Pro.

Still using them.

My Sennheiser PCX 250s had just died and I was searching for info on the CX300s. Never did buy them because I couldn't tell which were fakes.

It's kind of strange, but way before I discovered Head-Fi, I was using Grado HP1000 and K1000. Since Head-Fi, I have "downsized" to 'phones like AKG K701, Grado RS-1, Etymotic ER4, and now AKG K240 Sextett.

If I recall correctly for time, I was using the Grado SR325 + RA-1. It's up there as among the most inadvisable £700 I ever spent on audio.

I was using a Senn 497 and saw an advertisement for the Bose. It was very expensive and I wanted to know a little bit more about them and why they can charge over £250 for them.

Thanks to google, my wallet have been $$$$$$ lighter

On the plus side, Head-Fi did stop me from ordering the Bose

Etymotic ER6s. Didn't know what impendence meant at that time so I thought it would mate well w. my HD5.

The Bose TriPorts, then to Bose QC2.
