What I do for a living:

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

Headphone Inventory

Stax SR-007 Mk1, SR-202, SR-Lambda Nova Signature, SR-Lambda Pro, Stax SR-Lambda, Shure SE535, Portapros

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

Sold:
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:
