What I do for a living:

Retail Systems Analyst

Headphone Inventory

Full Size/On Ear:

Ultimate Ears UE 6000
Sennheiser HD595 With pure stranded silver re-cable
Sony MDR-XB500 (Just BASS! Perfect for when im drunk! lol)
Bose TriPort On-Ear Headphones (I was curious! give the abuse a break!) They gather quite a lot of dust; good thing they're in a case!
Sennheiser PXC 250

In Ear:
Sunrise SW-Xcape - Love these but silicone tips keep sliding out! Use Comply tips with these and thou shalt be rewarded.
Fischer Audio Eterna (V1) - Stunning, now left earphone is not working, but the right is stunning :P haha
Fischer Audio Eterna (V2) - Either my ears have gotten spoilt by higher end phones or these aren't as great as V1s.

Sennheiser IE7 - Play with some ear tips (All you can think of) - When you get it right and EQ just a bit more treble - WOW!!

Miles Davis Trumpet - WOW, just wow. I say better than UE900/XBA4ip/IE7. My ideal sound.

Sony XBA-4 iP - I honestly thought they were crap at 1st but except detail. Now detail is astonishing and bass is great! Use Comply's for fit. NEEDS A HEADPHONE AMP AND IT WILL SING. It's got an eccentric and energetic sound but I like it!

Ultimate Ears UE 700 - yeah, liked them then bought the UE900!
Ultimate Ears UE 900 - Hmmm.... not bad - they grow on you but a bit "safe".

PAST:
Phonak Audeo PFE 122 - Sweet, crystal clear. Prefer stock tips as comply's recess the highs too much. SOLD but brilliant :(
Ultrasone HFI 2400 - WTF is the buzz bout these? Very detailed but just strange with anything except soundtracks!

Denon AH-D510 - not bad for £20 ;) but quite crap. Binned.
Aircoustic Beech Wood - Stay in the office drawer as the emergency pair. Broken + binned.
Xears Bullet 120PRO - Worth their price, horrible driver flex though. Binned during clearout.
Sennheiser CX 300
Sony MDR E818LP
Sony MDR-EX71SLB
Ultimate Ears Metro.fi 2 - Great sound (When you pop the filters off, but useless cable!)
ME Electronics A151 - Great value.
Xears Experience XE200PRO Walnut Edition

Headphone Amp Inventory

iBasso DX50
Fiio E9
Fiio E7 DAC/AMP
Fiio E5, sometimes use my HK or Leema.

Musical Fidelity M1 DAC to one of these of course.

Using AudioQuest Cinnamon USB cables + Custom RCA's with Canare LV-77S to my Harman.
Sweet sound ;)

Source Inventory

PC or NAS or internet Radio.
iBasso DX50 w/ 16Gb Lexar 633x
Cowon S9 (8Gb Version)
Sony NW HD5 - a gem of an MP3 player.

Cable Inventory

Some cables I made with some neutrik jacks and RJ45's
3.5 to 3.5.s with ViaBlue t6's and 7n silver and 6n silver.
Some with Toxic cables too ;) they are special. Best value!
Some with single strand 6n silver - the lesson? dont use single strand silver for portability as after 12 months it will just break! See my gallery for a few pics!

Speaker Cable: Ecosse Reference ES 2.3 soldered using Mundorf 9.5% Silver solder to Cardas CAB banana plugs + carbon fibre wrap for looks.

Power-Related Components

Belkin surge master multi plug :S (some stupid name like that!)

Other Audio Equipment

Current: Leema Elements Integrated Amp w/Dac Upgrade Module (M1Dac is better so use that but depends which side of the bed I get up on lol)
Roksan Kandy K2 Amp
Speakers: Focal Chorus 807v

Old: Harman Kardon AVR 147 bi-amping a pair of Mourdant Short MS902i's, sounds nice enough for my 3.5 X 5.5 metre room.

Musical Fidelity M1DAC
Infinity TSS 500, Harman Kardon HK980 (Sold now though)

Oh, Creative DDTS-100 decoder to the Creative T7900. (Using optical to Creative to speakers does work well with music - when backing singers sing it only comes out of rear channels, It is quite cool. Even better with movies and games) NOTE: The effect and atmosphere created is super - quality is ...well... it is a gaming system innit!

Audio-Related Tweaks

3.5 to 3.5.s with ViaBlue t6's and 7n silver and 6n silver.
Some with Toxic Cables + Oyaide Jacks. Oyaide jacks are a winner!
Ecosse Reference ES 2.3 cables for speakers.

Music Preferences

A bit of everything. Hip Hop, soundtracks, rap, rock, a bit of jazz, but not that much.
A lot of chilled music, Cafe del mar, some classic etc. Yiruma, Zero 7, Mandalay.

Interests (non-headphone)

Arsenal.

Gear-Fi (Favorite Non-Audio Gear & Gadgets)

Where do I start ;) bacon is a good place. Maybe pens... or watches... or jeans?
