My headphone journey since my first "decent purchase" (in my own opinion).
Buy Senn CX870 since I saw that the original price was over 100 and that it was currently 35 dollars.
Lose all eartips
Proceed to buy GR02's from VSonic.
Loved the heck out of the GR02's
Buy HD600. Hate leaving house and leaving my beautiful HD600.
Tried the CX870 with GR02's eartips.
It must have fitted poorly back then, because these CX870s lost the grainy sound I originally hated from them. I LOVE the cx870 IEM's sound. It made me hate leaving home a lot less.
Then the cx870 shorted three days after I rediscovered it (time to learn to solder. Anyone have a suggestion for a soldering iron?).
I guess I have to say the CX870.
The Weller WLC-100 is a cheap one at $40. I own one at the moment, I like it a lot, but the tempature control isn't all that great, so I'll be upgrading soon to a $150 one.
