 Your sig said you sold your DT 880 pros and got out of headphones for a while, they were that bad? ;)

No i had other priorities at that time.. they are great headphones i really liked them. And If you are looking at those headphones that i used to own. those dates are no where correct its just when I added them i owned those 880 pros like 5-6 years ago..

*Sigh*

 

I'm about to hit 5.

 

Logitech UE900* - balanced armature iem portable

KEF M500 - closed on-ear dynamic semi-portable

Beyerdynamic T90 - open around-ear dynamic home use

Hifiman HE-500 - open around-ear planar magnetic home use

Koss ESP950* - open around-ear electrostatic home use

 

*Coming in soon.

 

Also have some MartinLogan Motion 4 bookshelf speakers.

 

Guess I like a variety of technologies. :o

IMO, I think more than 3 for one scenario (home or portable) is too much. There's no reason to collect a menagerie of fail-cans, or have several $1k+ cans other than a personal sign of wealth, or you're some kind of museum collector.

HE500 when she's awake, K550 when she's asleep and UE iems when travelling. But it' so hard to resist the temptation to add another pairs especially with all the sale season lately.

I think "too much" or "too many" depends -

 

are you collecting just for the sake of accumulating headphones?

have you lost interest in listening to any?

are you spending on them imprudently?

 

I have several headphones, but each has its place; I enjoy listening to 

any and all of them.

You've got one too many if you're struggling for space in your room....

I'm waiting for an episode of the show Hoarders to feature one of us on it. I figured some of us have enough headphones to be considered a headphone hoarder, right?

There can be no such thing as too many headphones! They all have unique sonic properties that make them unique! And when you couple that with your source, amps and dacs! Endless changing sounds!!! So BUY BUY BUY away fellow head-fiers!!!
