Your first pair of real cans??

Just curious which set of cans opened the doors of audiophilism to you guys tongue.gif

My first experience was with the SRH-440's. Thought they were the best ever.

ATH M50s. Used them happily for two years, but when the earpads disintegrated on me I started looking for upgrades, which led to a slippery slope...

Answering to this question: the Pioneer SE-L40. Not mine, but a friend owned them. After that day, i started my own headphone collection. 

 

I started with the Ultrasone proline 750

Elega dual driver CH-232 which I came here to ID after years of ownership and periodic listening, then first real set after looking around in here ( after the Nu-Force NE-7M iem ) was the 600 ohm AKG 240M locally. That's how the terrible curse started for me.

The samson SR850 was my first real can after $20 crap headsets. Quickly moved on from it after I realized just how much I was missing just coming into a entry level headphone.

First proper IEM's were the Denon AH-C551's which I quickly changed for the C751. First real cans were my T50RP's.

While I appreciate good sound I in no way consider myself an audiophile I acquired my first proper set of headphones just yesterday.  A shiny new pair of AKG Q701s.  Prior to that my only set of decent cans were some Seinheiser HD280s.

My first real ones where the Sennheiser HD598 and I love them to pieces. From comfort to sound to looks, everything is great
