About Me:

Currently interested in most compact portable players and earbuds

Headphone Inventory

RE-272 + spiral dot tips
RE-400
Koss Porta Pro

Have owned: Tones of IEMs and Headphones (will update at some point)

Headphone Amp Inventory

Never owned one!

Source Inventory

Iphone SE

Have owned:
_ Hifiman HM801 with PCM 1704 UK DAC chips (upgraded PCM 1704 K) and balanced card
(fantastic sounding player, very lush and textured, on warm side, very musical)
_Hifiman HM700
(excellent match for RE600 iems, very close to HM801 in a bit more open/airy, less textured. Volume buttons poorly designed for pockets and would often self trigger attempting to blow my eardrums)
_Iphone 4
(excellent sounding player when EQed with Accudio Pro app, was quite special to me)
_Terra player
(Crystalline clarity, grain free but lacking texture. Loved it with Koss Porta Pro but impossible to match with earbuds in my budget and music style sensitive made it too much of a specialty player. Ridiculously priced. Recommended only if you don't have anything better to do with your money)
_Shozy Alien
Thoroughly enjoyed SQ but couldn't deal with poor control wheel

Cable Inventory

Have Owned:
Vintage Cardas copper Blue smurf
(added noticeable clarity and tightness, not too bright, just a real nice upgrade)

Other Audio Equipment

Tones of stereo systems, separate components, speakers...

Currently using 2 Beolit 15 bluetooth speakers in stereo mode
(compact, portable, simple, battery powered as desired, very enjoyable sound signature)
