I mostly use my audio gear for portable use. I have IEMs such as:  Westone 1,2,3,4, Shure 530,535,846, sennheiser cx models which I didnt like, Audio Techinical IM50, IM70, ultimate ears triplefi 10 and the 5EB, and Noble UK10.. I also had and have many custom made IEMs such as: JH Audio 13,16, Aurisonics, Westone ES5,, Ultimate Ears 18, and finally the Custom Art Harmony 8Pro. I also have the new Sony Z5 which is my current favorite. I have demoed a few Headphones but my goal is to have one headphone that I can use on the go. I tried the Denon 400 which was very very good I liked it even more than the non portable Fostex 900. I need to know more about headphones because I have very little knowledge on Headphones because at home I just listen to the floor speakers. What about you?

Hope both ways and I believe we each know what we like but finding it is the issue.

What I mean by that is you have a lot of experience from different cans. And can help other newcomers.

Anyways, welcome to Head-Fi! smily_headphones1.gif

True I agree I can explain how it sounded to me, what I liked, what was missing and what I would like to add to it.. My fav is the Z5 with a good portable amp.

Me, I'm just a student in a budget so I try to get the BEST out of my cans.

I think I'm excellent at EQ-ing things. My main source is my laptop, an amplifier and foobar. Truth be told, by using EQ and experimenting with DSPs, when I tried various top tier headphones (like the Sennheiser HD700) hooked to a beautiful source and amp. Suprisingly, my ears weren't that blown away (Heh) by their performance.

And I just came from a lowly Superlux. I'm surprised my modifications can rival top tier cans. Maybe someday, I'll post a tutorial about my DSP and EQ guide so others can give their input about what they think about it.

I agree many expensive things doesnt mean it will be great.

So you mention you've been using speakers. Can you suggest some starter ones for people starting to have some curiosity like me? Since my experience is only from headphones. And I have no experience whatsoever about speakers..

My main focus for the last 11 years has been with portable gear(DAPs, IEMS,cables, and amps). The speakers I have are old but still sounds good if you like shaking bass. I have the Klipsch RP-280 System.  I started with their computer speaker system and ended up with their big one. Before that I had Cervin Vega speaker system which had a huge woofer. Best find an audio store and demo them. There are so many to choose from.
