How many pairs of headphones do you own? - Page 6

post #76 of 152

I have 9 right now, though only 3 of them are >$100.  I'm definitely a bit of collector, but I make use of all of them regularly except for my MDR V150, which is now permanently retired.  For example, I have one for work, one for my home listening station, one for my home desktop computer, one for the basement library, one for drumming, one for my keyboard, one for walking around the house, and one for the gym. 


Edit:  up to 10 now, with 4 >$100.


And I do a lot of switching as well.  Depending on the song, I will sometimes swap headphones, amps, sources, or adjust EQ settings.  I enjoy hearing a wide variety of presentations and sounds much more than one "perfect" setup that will supposedly work for everything.

One Sony Giiq.


One Sony MDRV6 in the mail.


One sony MDR9-series earbud (dont remember the model number after the 9) that I gave to my friend today as he was in dire need of an earbud that didnt sound like trash.


Thats it. Definetely a minority xD I also have a sennheiser earbud, but the pads on them are lost and I cant find any others.. If anyone knows where I can find replacement earbud pads that'd be cool :D

3 pairs, but I only use 2 of em. Beyerdynamic DT-990's for movies and games, with the HiFiMan HE-500's doing all the music. My Grado SR-80i's are just sitting there in the corner. ;~; I'll give em to my sister and see if she starts using em.

Since I started getting interested in audo late last year, I have gotten a few...see sig. Other than the 12 full size cans, I've some that I'd not listed as well (on-the-go cans and IEM's):

V-Moda Crossfade M100

Klipsch Image One BT

Klipsch Mode M40

Etymotic ER6 (from way back)

Shure SE215

Audio Technica CKX5is


As you can see, I'm more of an over ear guy, IEM's are just not my thing.....

Three pairs at the moment


1. HD800 - full size open can for serious listening

2. MDR-Z7 - full size closed can when isolation is required as sometimes the missus complains of the HD800 sound leakage

3. ESW9Ltd - portable close can, which actually belongs to the missus
