Hey guys, pick your choice from the selections or post if I did not include your option. Remember, this is the one headphone you will have to live with for the rest of your life.

Ugh wish i could vote but i haven't heard a single pair of those. Hopefully the Irvine meet will fix that.

A pair of HE-Audio Jades

the 009 might or might not have reliability issues (still too early to claim that the imbalance problem is fixed), so.... 007 is a safer bet.

RS-1

Since I'm at home though, HE-6

The amazing thing about an Island is after a while you don't care anymore about having the best headphone and just enjoy the music.

But the music will be enjoyed better on the best headphone

I of course agree but I would have to state that there is a 15 year old walking down the street with his first pair of Beats listing to Pitbull's Plant Pitbull who is much more happy than the OCD Head-Fier in his late 40s changing powercords to his 100K system in the middle of the night and not getting anything to sound right. 

 

 

 

The kid with the Beats thinks everything is right. It is right in his perception. Which headphone you end up having is really not 100% important to enjoying music. The perception of music is a mental thing not totally dependent on equipment or the lack there of. There is no best headphone.

Haha, just post your choice of source then :) 

 

Seems like the 009s are winning but the LCD 2.2s are pretty darn close. Btw, this thread is just for fun, so just vote for your favourites, Im pretty sure almost no one has owned or even tried all the listed headphones.

Given how much I've come to enjoy these vintage Stax Lambdas, the SR-009 would be the logical progression for me (if money wasn't a problem).

 

Since amp/source can be anything, just hand me a BHSE and a top-of-the-line desktop computer with an X-Fi card (I need the gaming features) and some fancy external DAC that's as transparent as possible. One can dream, right?

Well, any of my current setup. My portable is always with me, so it doesn't count. Oh yes, a GPS phone for calling for help will be better than a pair of headphones, IMO.
