About Me:

A teenager with too many expensive hobbies, but fortunately few responsibilities.

Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):

Magic: the Gathering
Picking heavy stuff up and putting it back down

What I do for a living:

Personal training

Headphone Inventory

Current: Grado GH1, Grado RS2e, Grado PS500, Frankensteined iGrados (everything is DIYed except for the drivers and cable)

Previous: Koss KSC75, SR80i, SR225i, MS1i, Grado RS1i, Grado HF-2 #44, Hifiman HE-5LE, Hifiman RE-ZERO

Shoutout to HK_Sends, a man beyond exception who has enabled me to enjoy more of this hobby than I ever could have dreamed.

Headphone Amp Inventory

Current: Little Dot 1+ (heavily upgraded by someone else, thankfully!)

Previous: CMoy Penguins Decaffeinated amp, Practical Devices XM4, Little Dot 2++, iBasso D10 + HiFlight's OPamp Topkit, RSA P-51 Mustang, Schiit Asgard

Source Inventory

Current: Cambridge Audio DacMagic XS

Previous: Cowon D2, Cowon O2, Hifiman 602, iPod Touch 4G, Colorfly C3 (it's awesome, but I wanted a USB DAC)

Other Audio Equipment

Audioengine A5 bookshelf speakers. It's too bad the dimensions of my room aren't conducive to getting the most out of them, as they really are quite amazing for the price.

Audio-Related Tweaks

Too many to list at this time. Such is life as an obsessive tweaker!

Music Preferences

Queens of the Stone Age
Steely Dan
Nine Inch Nails
Biggie Smalls
Lots of other music on the rock spectrum, with a smattering of rap and electronica

Interests (non-headphone)

Space, physics, and the miracle that is the human body.

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

Watches, knives, cars, and pizza.
