Please forgive the Rolling Stones reference in the subject line. :)
I am 35 years old, and live on the northwestern coast of Norway.
While I've 'always' - that is, at least since I was 10-11 years old - have had a very intense relationship to music, be it live or recorded - I've only sporadically listened through headphones. (Current setup - various sources to a Benchmark DAC1, a pair of mid-nineties vintage AKG K240 cans)
I am currently considering upgrading the K240s - I find myself listening more and more using headphones, and while the K240s are _good_, I know there's even better stuff out there - and, where I currently live, there is no room for a proper listening room; hence - if I want great sound, I need great 'phones.
Oh, besides, I kind of, sort of, missed hanging around with people who wouldn't throw up their arms in despair and roll their eyes if I spent more than a few tens of bucks on headphones; I miss being around people who _get_ hi-fi.
Enter head-fi.org. :)
As far as music goes, I tend to listen mostly to rock, blues and jazz - in that order - with a sprinkling of classical strewn over every now and then, mostly choral works.
I'm a source agnostic - while I much prefer vinyl for the sheer feelgoodness (is that even a word?) of putting on one of my favourite albums, I enjoy listening to CDs, SACDs, DAT, reel-to-reels, even. :)
Currently playing - The Decemberists' excellent live album 'We all raise our voices....' Feel like somewhat of a heathen, though - seeing as my only headphone amp is the DAC1 (Which has no analog inputs) I run the output from my RIAA amplifier through an old throwaway ADC. Oh well. Guess I had better start saving up for a DAC2. :)
