Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):

Computers, motor-boating (small alu ones), mountain-biking, hiking, kayaking, anime, philosophy...

What I do for a living:

Engineering Stuff

Headphone Inventory

Current:
######################
Sennheiser HD800 (my #1 headphone, hardwired with pure copper cable)
Sennheiser HD650 (still great, but less used after I got the HD800s properly setup...)
Sennheiser HD590 (the one that started it all, kept because I'm a sobbing sentimetal git)
DUNU DN-1000 (mobile division, comply ear tips)
Sennheiser CX-300 (gym division)

Gone:
######################
Beyerdynamic T1 (not bad but... not amazing)
HifiMan HE-500 (sounds good no doubt, but less comfortable than HD800 and the soundstage can't compete)
Sony XB1000 (good entry level headphone for basshead, however the HD800 with a +2/3 dB bass boost shows it how's boss)

Tried:
######################
AKG 701/702 (not bad... but not amazing. And not much meat on the bones either)
Audeze LCD-2/3 (Impressive, but I prefer the soundstage and comfort of the HD800)
Beyerdynamic DT990 (Meh...)
Denon D2000/5000/7000 (The D7000 is a good closed headphone but can't compete with the best open back ones)
Grado PS1000 (Dire Straits is pretty amazing on this one, as is any rock-n-roll. But I need more than that!)
Sennheiser 598 (best entry level headphone I know. BUY IT!)
Ultrasone Pro900 (good basshead headphone, tighter than the XB1000 if that's the way you like it)

Headphone Amp Inventory

Current:
######################
Balanced DNA Sonett with upgraded tubes

Gone:
