About Me:

Sometimes I'm on Head-Fi. Often times I'm not. At all times, music comes first.

What I do for a living:

Something top secret, involving paperclips, out of date Marmite, pretty ponies, and the letter Q.

Headphone Inventory

Current Stable:
-*Sennheiser HD 600
-*Beyerdynamic DT880/250 ('05)
-*Shure SRH440
-MEElectronics S6
-Koss PortaPro
-Koss UR55

*Preferred members of my rotation

-RHA MA-350 (strain relief on right side failed, leading to a short)

-Audio-Technica ATH-M50S (bought the hype, mistake)
-Grado SR225i (too colored, limited genre coverage)
-MEElectronics A161P (too much midrange, too warm + lacking treble)
-NAD VISO HP50 (Good sound, TERRIBLE comfort)
-Koss SP330 (Pretty good sound, though not my preferred signature; unfortunate comfort and fit issues)

Would love to hear/try:
-Phonak PFE 111/112
-Brainwavz B2/Fischer Audio DBA-02
-Philips Fidelio S2
-Vintage (80s) DT880
-Beyer DT531

Retired (after seven years of dedicated service):

Rockboxed 60GB 5G iPod Video

Other Audio Equipment

Cambridge Audio Model 2500 (circa 1978)
Lepai LP-2020A+ Class-T amp

Audio-Related Tweaks

I've placed felt circles over the drivers of my SRH440 to tame the highs and make the headphone comfortable, as well as stuck a bit of foam onto the headband with adhesive velcro strips.

Music Preferences

Pretty eclectic really

Interests (non-headphone)

Cooking (I make a MEAN stir fry!)
Electronics / Computers / Software
The occasional video game
Playing / making music (keyboards + vocals)
