What are your secret headphones? - Page 5

post #61 of 80

I had a pair of foam covered headphones that came with my Aiwa portable stereo (the same one Marty McFly had in BttF) that lasted for years and years.  They're probably still in a box at my folks house back in Scotland.  My hair always got caught in them but boy could they rock!

Oh wow, I forgot about these. I used the stock ones that came with my zen nano plus until the completely fell apart. Thought they were amazing. Kinda wish I had them now to compare to my much better headphones.

Nice little necro.  My secret phones are my Denon AH D-1001.  Nothing fancy but they still sound terrific -- one of the most balanced entry level phones ever.

Should not be secret cans IMO. I love those and find them to have better balance and tonality than even my M50! :)

 

My secret phones are some light blue and white sporty Philips ear buds that wrap around your ear. My future mom-in-law got them for me, knowing how much I love headphones so they have a lot of sentimental value. :P

I remember my first set of headphones (Sony MDR-W08L) they came with my walkman, i thought the quality was pretty good. redface.gif

I'd hardly call the Denon D-1001 secret. Their good enough to beat a lot of more expensive 'phones.

 

My first headphones that got me into head-fi was UE 200's. My next IEM upgrade was UE TF10 =3.

Skullcandy Hesh, but they din't last too long. About 4 months in the headband adjuster broke, not a happy day. 

 

Never bought from Skullcandy again.

My first headphones are the Sonic Gear Airphone V. What, never heard of them? Of course, since I don't think they're sold in the US. My mom got me these for my birthday once, after my samsung earphones (the ones that comes with your galaxy smartphone) broke before 24 hours of use. I still keep these just because of their design looks really damn cool. Oh, and because they sound decent for 50$ Bluetooth headphones. They weren't my cup of tea because of their lacking bass,though. This is the link for those headphones: http://leapfroglobal.com/sonicgear/personal-audio/airphone-v.html

 

The headphones that got me into the hi-fi "community" were the skullcandy smokin' buds 2. They sounded so good IMO... before they were brutally cut by a pair of scissors u.u

Well, 3 pairs of sony MDR-EX300.......

 

The first pair lasted for 2 to 3 years until some part of it fell off and it just ELECTRIFIED my ears!!!!! Then I bought the second pair and it started to electrify me after several months when it was still as a whole. I can't imagine my obsession with that iem because I got a third pair that had the same problem after some time of use.

 

I finally got pass that obsession and moved up to GR07 partly because I still care about my ears. The second and third pair of EX300 are still here...............somewhere. I won't listen to it any more, but I will miss the sound.

 

 

 

 

 

 

(actually I can't quite remember how they sounded)

Wow... You must have suffered a lot to get electrified not once, not twice, but 3 times... How did it feel? 

post #71 of 80

actually each electrified me a few times. I picked them up because I didn't like the boomy bass the senn cx 300 has. at that time, I was not into all this and did not know what else to choose. 

 

they all felt like small bites that can make your face twitch, but they had their own signatures. the first pair has the numbness that extends better, the second pair felt deeper and more punchy, the third was sparkle and harsh.

I actually went from no headphones straight to HD800s... :D The last time I used headphones before I first got those were many, many years ago, when I was in middle school or so. But those headphones/earphones are long gone.

Late 70s...ugly white plastic, bright yellow foam pads..my HD414s. Wish I still had them!

My first headphones (early 1970s) were a pair of Koss Pro 4AA. They were sealed, over-ear phones with liquid-filled padding and provided pretty good sound isolation. I haven't thought about them in years, but they are still available at http://www.koss.com/en/products/headphones/full_size_headphones/PRO4AA__PRO4AA_Full_Size_Headphone
