Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):

What I do for a living:


Headphone Inventory

iGrado - like it really much. Best Bargain since it's available.
but if You don't like the neckband buy Alessandro MS1/MS1i

Sennheiser PX100 - not bad, nothing special (iGrado much much better)

Sennheiser IE8 - sold - recommend it, but a bit too german (I prefer iGrado)

Sennheiser IE80 - sold - good but not recommend it as much as IE8

AKG K501 - not recommend it, too bass light, big, warm, soundstage is unrealistic - amping is a challange

Beyerdynamic T1 - booring - don't buy that pieces of sh*t - my worst purchase ever

Grado PS1000 - amazing but not so comfy after 30 minutes, NOT worth X million $$$ but still that sound is WOW

Ultrasone Edition 10 - best build quality ever in my hands, but sounds is a bad joke, forget it

Etymotic Research ER-4S - not recommend it, very bad, iem-should work also without serious amping, don't buy that

Sony W202 - recommend it, best "wireless" portable gear so far - easy to use - ok sound, amazing concept - no cable

Sony W252 - not recommend it, too big, bad build quality and layout, but buy iGrado and modifiy the headband

ESW9 - good but not as good as excepted, discomfortable - heavy for my likings and too much clamping force

Grado HF2 - sound is out of this world, but a bit expensive to justified the price tag. Alessandro

My all time favorite headphone: Alessandro MS Pro -> small, light, sound is beautiful, relatively cheap
Pro's: does everything right (for my music), love mahagony (classical, sacred music, jazz)
Con's: comfort problems, thick annoying cable, one-sided thin cable would be much more preferable

Headphone Amp Inventory

Musical Fidelity M1HPA - very good, like it
Graham Slee Ultra Linear - forget it - NOISE EVERYWHERE !
Fiio E5 - good
Fiio E6 - bad

Source Inventory

PC via USB (no soundcard) - B&W MM1 - LOVE IT !!!!!!!
Klipsch Promedia 4.1 - not bad but MM1 miles ahead.
Sansa Fuze V2 - positive aspects: NO touchscreen, I hate all touchscreen in the world

Cable Inventory

Audioquest Carbon USB 0,75m - recommend it - very good

Other Audio Equipment

Klipsch RB-75 loudspeaker - not perfect for music but outstanding with movies
Unison Research Simply Two Stereo Tube Amp - sweet
Focal Utopia in car with Scanspeak tweeter - nice synergy.
Helix A4 and Helix A6 car amp - affordable german masterpiece
Brax 1F condensator - there is still no better on the market
Phase Aliante 12 Si LTD Woofer - of course sealed - best ever sub-bass in car audio industry

Audio-Related Tweaks

iGrado driver with Sennheiser PX100 headband -> hibrid , very comfortable, light
ADE factory modification for T1 - makes it a little bit better, nothing special

Music Preferences

Classic, Rock, Pop, Electro, Rap, Jazz ... blablabla

Interests (non-headphone)

Tesla Model S

Gear-Fi (Favorite Non-Audio Gear & Gadgets)

Nokia e71
Sanyo Eneloop - outstanding
Nofan CR-95C - best passiv CPU cooler ever - ZERO dB
