This is a thread to remember the first earphone or portable headphone you had that showed you the light to high end audio.

 

In memory of the Etymotic ER6i.

First headphone: Sennheiser HD-280 Pro

 

It was the first hi-fi headphone I've ever owned and is still the best full size can I own. I'm looking to change that over the summer though.


First IEM: V-Moda Bass-Freq

 

I bought these because they were cheap and my most recent (at the time) pair of earbuds had just broken. The big bass fueled my bass obsession and was perfectly good...at the time

 

First Hi-Fi IEM: Head-Direct (HiFiMan) RE0s.


Then I got these in January after discovering this forum. Oh boy. These are currently the best all around IEMs I own and have started my obsession with not only IEMs but sound and science altogether.

Fake Sennheiser CX500s. Got me interested in what was out there at least.

For me, it was the IEMs that came with my Sony A818. They seem to be the same as the EX82. One of the main reasons I chose the Sony DAP is because it came with earphones that were supposedly "good". And they really were to me, since I hadn't heard anything better.

 

The first pair that I went out of my way to buy was a set of Audio Technica ES7s. That changed everything for me.
