What was your first headphone purchase after coming to Head-Fi? - Page 58

post #856 of 910

Fischer Audio FA-011 was my first purchase from Head-Fi recommendations. Back then I owned 1 pair of IEMs. Now I've spent way too much on this hobby and I won't be stopping any time soon.

After coming here, I bought the Sennheiser Momentum and Fiio E07K amp/dac. My poor wallet...

DT880/600. I already had some 990pros and figured it's the next logical step.

What about a DAC?? Nice setup BTW!

My first purchase was a Sennheiser Momentum... though I found head-fi when searching for info about the Momentum, so I don't know if it really counts. A few weeks after I bought an HD598 because I got curious with this "open heapdhone" thing...

i found this site by accident.  i was looking for high end iems, and the only ones that I could find on amazon were shures and westones.  while doing a google search, i came across David's great flagship thread.  I soon bought some westone 4s, and soon after that, I bought some sennheiser hd600s

Don't need a DAC with the Audiolab 8200 (see my signature)--it's all in one using the 32-bit ESS Sabre chip for D/A conversion.  And thanks, I agree it is nice.

I bought Sennheiser HD 558. I did not mod it because I can't figure how to remove the pad...

I haven't brought anything since joining this site. But my first purchase might be the Alpha Dog or the LCD XC :basshead:

My first purchase was a Koss Portapro for travelling. Grados are not suitable for the Streets of Seattle. Much better build quality and durability than the Skullcandy phones that fell apart after ten months of gentle usage.

Sony CD900STs since I liked the V6s so much.

V-Moda M100. So happy with them. :)
