Senn HD-600s + Senn CX-400 IIs + Philips Uptowns + Sony XE-1 + Fiio E1 = me!

I thought I should finally join after dropping into the forum for years.

 

Current equipment is as stated:

 

Sennheiser HD-600s, bought about 13 years ago. Finally getting new foams for them, as the old ones deteriorated whilst in storage for a few years.

 

Sennheiser CX-400 IIs, my day-to-day solution, and for when I want some doof doof. They make the HD-600s sound incredibly lacking in bass. The wiring in the plug is starting to get a little finicky (one channel quickly dropping out then coming back), so it's days might be numbered.

 

Sony XE-1s, still in a box, as backups for when the CX-400s die.

 

Philips Uptowns, recently unboxed. Not sure when I'll use these. Perhaps at work, or perhaps to replace CX-400s when commuting.

 

Fiio E1. New toy (paid $2!) which lets me use the HD-600s on the iPhone primarily.

Get a good amp and the HD600's will shine.

Hmmm, ask me in about a month. Should have a better idea by then.
