Of course.


An iem is what you need. Phonak 112 maybe??

- Perfect level of isolation

- 100/100 star comfort with a very easy fit (It don't need a deep fit)

- Extremely low profile, low maintenance and portable player suitable. 


Though some who are really treble sensitive might want to consider something else.

For mobile beach combing the Ultrasone Edition 8 would be my choice - as they are my current on the go solution. In fact just got back from a tropical island an th 8's where fantastic for late night listening.

If I'm stuck in one place then the Sony R10 bass heavy would be my no1 choice as I could gloat at the fine workmanship and wonder at the legendary design between listening sessions.

Orpheus :) mostly because I've never heard it before :P

I would have brought my Ultrasones Edition 8 because they are closed (just imagine the noise from the water that you have to live with all day long) and they are perfect to connect to my little mp3/flac player which battery I can charge from solar cells.

Beyerdynamic T1

I might be able to use those high-energy coils to make a communications device

Audeze LCD-2 rev.2 without blinking *_^


and what is this ??! there's a lot of unnecessary options there ! you actually put the two versions of the stax MK1\2 and Audeze 2.1\2

Yup. HD650

Koss esp-950 I like their lifetime warranty.  Would suck if my headphones broke out of warranty

I'd take the Ultrasone Signature Pro.


Not the best sounding, but most versatile, and can be used as a weapon when need be.


Can also be used as a shield, shovel, boomerang or helmet.


Easy to drive as well.

My Baby Orpheus (HE60) and a Cavalli LL ...... solar powered of course.

My choice would be the AKG K1000s provided I can find a cave for sound isolation and protecting the drivers from beach sand bigsmile_face.gif

post #42 of 47

An endless supply of AKG K 314.

It would be ghe most exotic and elusive orpheus for me. Having never tried them and unlikely to ever be lucky enough to try them it'd be nice to have a lifetime of isolation to get to know them.
My desert island would have plenty enough shelter to ensure their longevity. In that instance I'd like to try the most unattainable headphones I could get. Which seems like it's these.

I'd probably choose a pair that would keep my head warm at night

post #45 of 47

Sennheiser HD 700 and Colorfly C4 Player
