What I do for a living:

Fire radio-frequency pulses at things and see how they react (NMR).

Headphone Inventory

Stax SR-007 Mk1, Shure SE535, Portapros, Stax SR-Lambda, Stax SR-Lambda Pro

Stax SR-002 (great sound, but the fit caused too much pain)

Stax SR-404LE (great cans, just had too many Stax)
SR-404, SR-202 (upgraded to SR-404LE)
Grado HF-2 (engaging, great bass, but too bright for my everyday listening)
Sennheiser HD600 (great cans, smooth, laid-back)
Shure SRH-840 (great cans, didn't fit my large head)
ATH-M50 (also nice cans, just didn't use them over the IEMs)
Stax SR-6/SRD-5 (awesome detail, no bass with the amp I had)

Died because of poor quality:
Shure E2C, Sony EX-51, EX-71, EX-81 (cables cracked/torn/fell apart), triple.fi 10 (earbud broke, twice)

Pico Slim (great amp, just stopped going mobile).
SRM-006t (great amp, just had too other Stax amps)
SRM-252II (kit amp with SR-202, OK)
Gilmore Lite (v1) (great amp, but no more dynamics for me)
SRM-313 (good SS amp, preferred 006t at the time)
Pico DAC/Amp (amazing combo, but wanted Pico Slim)
Gilmore Lite (v2) + custom DPS (awesome amp, sold b/c I didn't need two!)
CKKIII built by keyid (sold to buy Gilmore Lite)
Practical Devices XM5 (didn't like)
Apogee Mini-DAC (too expensive)
