My headphones say to me that music has to be appreciated, and to do so, the right gear must be used.

“What your headphones say about you?”
That i once was a hardcore headphones fanatic!!
Now i know what i need and want in a good pair of headphones, neutral, well balanced, sweet sweet sound.
I got some oldies in my closet that need repair for some time, but i like my Grado SR325i so much for my rock n roll and my Sennheiser for movies and stuff that i haven't yet took the time to repair my AT AD1000.
I can say that i am a very good father to my two child :)
what my headphones say about me?
Well my headphones mean everything to me, being a monitor engineer I use them daily. Comfort and clarity are both big concerns of mine. I work with some of the biggest artist of the day.
Weather its country, rock, hip hop or jazz, they have to to be accurate and crisp. If they aren't the best it could cost me my job. After all your only as good as your last gig.
“What your headphones say about you?”
I have the Sennheiser HD 650s and they say I favor my music in a more natural, neutral and balanced presentation with minimum distortion and without being muddled with over exaggerated bass. I use my HD650's with my amp on a daily basis regardless of genre (or mood) of music I listen to.
I also have the M-Audio IE-10 IEM's as my portable set, paired with The Hornet amp from Emmeline. This set also says that I favor music with natural presentation without the enhanced booming bass from other IEM products on the market. Even on the go, I prefer to listen to my music in its true rendition with headsets that compliment my taste in music.
In addition, my headphones say I look for quality and durability in products that last for years.
"What do your headphones say about you?"
Mine convey a physical love of sounds, of music. In order to do that, I have two pairs in order to get the most of out every kind of musical genre that I listen to. (HD650s, DT880s). They say that I am a person of varying tastes, from the laid back and peaceful ambient music, to the heavy beats of techno music. All are covered and played back with a wonderful accuracy on both headphones to the delight of my ears. The way I physically treat my headphones shows a pure passion of true sound, to the extent that I'd keep that sound alive as long as I possibly can by effectively babying the headphones, and the comfort they provide say that comfort is as equally important to me as the quality of sound - indeed, unless you can physically meld yourself into the sound, how can you possibly enjoy it? Uncomfortable headphones are a constant reminder that a vice is gripping your cranium, distracting you from what's really important - the sound.
In short, my headphones show I love music.
My Heir Audio 4.Ai's will say I care about the musician and their music. When Stevie Ray Vaughan or Jimi Hendrix finally settle on a vintage Stratocaster and tube amp to get the sound he wants I should respect him enough to be able to reproduce that sound as accurately as possible. Ditto for a classical violinist who's playing a Stradivarius or Guarneri. Top notch equipment will get you that much closer the music. No HiFi equipment will ever be able to do the real thing 100% but it sure is fun trying. Thanks, William
My headphones are the manifestation of creativity. I love music and I am dedicated to excellence. The Heir Audio 8.As that I own say that I enjoy a musical presentation to music, favoring emotion and groove over neutrality. Music is everything to me.
More than this though, as a drummer my custom IEMs block out the world around me and let me focus on the music. My headphones show that not only can I enjoy listening to music, but I can create something new, something magical every time I sit down at the drum kit.
I appreciate this unique opportunity.
I have a number of headphones--mostly IEM's--which say a lot about me. However, I will start by mentioning my over ear headphones. My HD650 convey that I enjoy listening to a plethora of different genres of music, spanning from classical and opera to jazz, hip-hop, and R&B. My Thunderpants TP1 (still waiting for the set to actually be built) are proof that I don't mind waiting in order to receive a unique product with top-notch sound quality.
Now for some IEM's. My RE-0, Radius DDM, and TF-10 demonstrate that I enjoy listening to music analytically as well as for fun at different times. Finally, my custom re-shelled SM3 are proof of my commitment to relentlessly challenge the status quo and journey into uncharted territory all in the search for sonic excellence.
(Pictured above are my custom re-shelled SM3)
I have one pair of Klipsch immage s4i in ear headphones. I purchased them about a year and a half ago, and they were my first "real' pair of headphones, despite the deceivingly cheap price tag. If you haven't heard of them, they are known for great noise cancelling, good soundstage and not having a boosted bass or anything crazy. What they say about me is simple. I might not have the resources to buy a true pair of audiophile headphones, but I stay true to what the artist intended when they wrote the song. That, and I love noise cancelling.
My Favorite headphones, the Phonak Audeo PFE 232 say about me that I like versatile sounding IEMs, as I have a quite wide genres selection.
They also say about me that I do not compromise about the sound-quality, I always look for the best sounding IEMs and headphones.
They say about me that I appreciate comfort, and I find it very important.
Do as you always do - persevere. Fight through the trials each day puts in front of you, because at the end of it all, you'll always have Music waiting for you. No one expects you to be superman. Go ahead; stutter during your dream job interview, trip while you're walking up the aisle. Whenever you're down and out, Music will be there to pick you up. Sometimes, she can be soft-spoken, but she can also get feisty; that's why I'm here. I'll help you hear what she has to say, what she wants to say. So just do as you always do - persevere.
