Your first headphones?

post #1 of 79
Thread Starter 
My first hi-fi headphones were AKG K141's.

I'm thinking , that my impressions of quality sound are most likely biased/rationalised subconciously on my experience of these headphones.

Because, after all the headphones I've tried,, I still like AKG's the most,
and have a preference to the AKG house sound.
surprise! :P

What were your first hi-fi headphones?
And how do they relate to your favorite headphones now?

They were A500s. I want them back. I think I like them more than my K271s.

I started with IEMs... got my triple.fi's and then moved up to HD650's.

About to have some JH 13's on the way

EP630s. Combined with V0s (as opposed to CBR 128), made me jizz in my pants at the time.

PRO900 ! Fell in love with em ! They're still my favorite though DT990 definitly suit better my favorite genre, trance.

Shure se-210. They were quite good, till I heard better ^^

Right now I have Grado SR225 (not the i version) and Phonak PFE (They are keepers and not looking for anything else in the IEM department).

you running them tubed?
I'm still curious but the dt990,especially the 600 ohm version.

I listen to a lot of trance too, tho lately, it's been more so psy-breaks and dubtep, where I prefer the k271's even to AD2000's

Headphones in general? That were mine, and no-one else's? Probably the cheapos that came with a Panasonic Shockwave tape deck.

The first ones I bought was sennheiser HD212. I still have them, but I don't use them anymore. Could be fun though, to listen to them again and see how they compare to my other headphones.

My first headphones were Sony MDR-XD200's. I picked them up at 'The Source' one day after I realized I needed some "personal space" amongst my brothers, who had computers in the same room.

My first REAL headphones were HD595's, which were evidently upgraded to HD650's a few days ago

My first headphone was the Koss UR30. Eight years later (around 2005), I purchased a Grado SR60. Big difference! Since then, I've managed to hold off upgrading, despite spending at least 3-4 hours a week, every week, on Head-Fi. Not sure I can fight the urge much longer!

I had and still have Sennheiser HD600s as long as I may remember. Maybe since they are on the market But my HD650s outperform the HD600s.
To try (I dont say "to come"): HD800.

I use Sennheiser noise cancelling headphones for air travel since they are available, much better then these standard airplane phones they give to you (probably contenders for "worst headphone ever").

Do KSC75's count? Cause they got me hooked. Damn you, Koss.
