The one headphones you use most in your collect? - Page 4

Right now it's the LCD-2. I actually haven't picked up any of my other cans since I got these puppies. Before that it was tied between the AD2000 and HD650.

Recabled HD600s at home and recabled JH13 Pros/JH 16 Pros on the go (depending on source and genre).

At work, TWAgged DBI Pro-705s. I alternated between these and the Shure SRH-840s for a week and have stuck with the 705s since. While the Shures sound better by almost all measures, and are better at blocking out external noise too (the whole reason why I stick with closed cans in the office), the 705s are more comfortable and the sound is less trebly, so background music doesn't get sufficiently distracting.

 

At home, I still switch between headphones a lot but probably reach for the MB Quart 95x most often. Probably the second-most comfortable cans I've got (the most comfortable being a QP 70 with almost-worn-out pads). Well-recorded music sounds extremely good, but it's very forgiving of the hours of poorly-recorded indy rock I've been ripping and re-auditing for the past couple months. If I know I'll be listening exclusively to music with high production values for an evening, one of the AKGs are usually my first choice; otherwise it's annoying to swap cans after every few songs.

I probably use my HD-555's the most, but then again my collection only consists of SR-60's, M50's and SRH240's.

For home use, my MP Sextetts are my favourite set and I'm selling off everything else. For portable, either my Pioneer HDJ-2000 or Senn PX100-ii.

The AKG K702, they are great sounding with jazz and classical. Paired with my solid state amp.

RE0's. Pretty much whatever I've "upgraded" to recently.

LCD2 gets most of the time then the T1 rest are collecting dust

MS Pro Ulti always feels and sounds right, except a few days of cruel summer heat.

post #55 of 68

Ultrasone Pro 900 Kees Mod + Milan Cable. This is because the s/o is always running the TV. If alone, Grado PS 1000.

I use my Jbuds J3m the most as I commute a lot and don't like to carry much stuff.

 

It's kept in a pouch which hangs to my Home keys.

I find myself going to my Denon D7000 more and more.

Right now it's a tie between my KRK KNS-8400 and DJ100. When I listen to the KRK I keep going back to the DJ100 because the sound is more engaging and fun. I love the bass on them.

The M30 pads on the DJ100 make them soooo comfortable. I think those are my favorite cheap pads. Somehow they keep my ears cool.

My k601 that I love has not been used in over a week and a half sadly. I NEED to start listening to it more!

K701s have gotten the nod over several other headphones. Of course, I'm quick to get rid of headphones I know I won't listen to over the K701s, so...

 

Although the HF-2s are a completely different beast, so I've been reconsidering my quest to find the single "do-everything" headphone and instead getting two separate headphones.

I have three headphones in my collection (so far tongue_smile.gif) and I really love all of them, and using them almost equally. I have to say though that I probably use my k701 most because they are good with jazz and orchestral classical music which is the music I mostly listen to. I use my k501 with chamber music and acoustic rock and pop, and HD650 with rock and sometimes with larger orchestral works. Either way this trio is a fantastic set of headphones o2smile.gif I don't like the idea of a single "do-everything" headphone. I prefer to have different headphones that excell in their own areas and complete each other, creating a little variety.
