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)
Hifiman RE400 (a bit "dry", but they will do for now)
Sennheiser CX-300 (gym division)

Gone:
######################
Philips Fidelio X1 (Exceptional value for money, but not a "reference headphone" like the HD600/650/800)
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)
DUNU DN-1000 (nice value but too much bass for me)

Tried:
######################
AKG 701/702 (not bad... but not amazing. And not much meat on the bones either)
Audeze LCD-2/3/X (Impressive. Smooth and powerful. 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:
######################
Violectric V200
Audio-GD Phoenix
Burson HA-160

Source Inventory

Current:
######################
Anedio D1 (a stunning DAC... love it!)
Creative ZxR (best gaming sound card)
Meridian Explorer

Gone:
######################
BMC PureDAC (Superb all-in-one unit, the inbuilt amp is world-class SS)
Creative Titanium HD

Pretty much anything except rap and country. Special love for electronica and anything that lets an artist's raw talent shine through.
