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Something top secret, involving paperclips, out of date Marmite, pretty ponies, and the letter Q.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:
-*Beyerdynamic DT880/250 ('05)
-*Shure SRH440
-MEElectronics S6 (heavily EQ'ed)

*Permanent members

-RHA MA-350

-Audio-Technica ATH-M50S (bought the hype, mistake)
-Grado SR225i (too colored, limited genre coverage)
-MEElectronics A161P (too much midrange, too warm + lacking treble)

Would love to hear/try:
-Koss PortaPro
-HiFiMAN RE-262
-Monoprice 8320
-Phonak PFE 111/112
-Rock It R-50

Headphone Amp Inventory

Behringer Xenyx 802 preamp/mixer

Source Inventory

Retired (after seven years of dedicated service):

Rockboxed 60GB 5G iPod Video

Other Audio Equipment

Kenwood KR-6030 (circa 1978)
Cambridge Audio Model 2500 (circa 1978)
Lepai LP-2020A+ Class-T amp

Audio-Related Tweaks

Both my headphones are calibrated to my hearing curve using PiccoloNamek's EQ guide. My S6 is also EQ'ed, and it's a shocking transformation! Not quite neutral, but DAMN!

Also, I've affixed felt over the drivers of my SRH440 to make them more comfy. It works!

Music Preferences

Classical (all periods)
Rock (classic, prog)
The odd song from other genres
