About Me:

I'm that guy that did that thing that time. Not that one, the other one. Yeah him.

Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):

Books, Movies, Music, Mountain Bikes (building them more them riding apparently)

What I do for a living:

web server support monkey

Headphone Inventory

Cans: HiFiMan HE-400*, UE6000, Grado SR125i/Martin Custom Audio woodies, Audio Technica WS55x, AKG K81, Sennheiser HD419,
IEMs: UE TripleFi 10, VSONIC GR07 BE*, Soundmagic PL50, Xears XE200Pro, Audio Technica ATH-CKM50, Brainwavs Beta, Meelectronics CW31.

Want list: Denon AH-D5000, LCD2 maybe, custom IEMs

Headphone Amp Inventory

Total Airhead if I could find it and a Nuforce Icon 2. Embarrassing really.

Wantlist: Ibasso DX50, A good desktop DAC after I get my house...and a new desk.

Cable Inventory


Power-Related Components

wall sockets

Other Audio Equipment

Use my Nuforce Icon 2 as a speaker amp mostly, driving some vintage Design Acoustics bookshelf speakers with a cheapo sub on the line out. That's it. All my other vintage stuff was given away or failed on me.

Audio-Related Tweaks

After I started reading Head-fi, I actually ported the cups of and did the Grado style rear driver hole opening mod on a pair of Skullcandy Ti's that I had bought before I knew better. Incredibly, it worked. Improved bass response, better clarity and soundstage. Took them from what I would now call about a 1.5/10 to at least a 4/10. Anemic waste of space to functional in about 30 minutes. Still crap compared to everything else I have now, but I only had my AKG K81s at the time, they were hurting my head, I was waiting to receive my Martin Custom-Grado SR125i , and I had just read about 200 pages in the Grado mod threads.

Music Preferences

Jazz, funk, punk, blues, classic rock, and instrumental/electronic beats of many kinds.

Favorite bands or performers at the moment: The Bad Plus, Stanton Moore (Trio), Madlib (his Jazz stuff), Garage a Trois, Grant Green, Jimmy Smith, Flying Lotus, Bonobo, Radiohead, The Clash, Gorillaz, RJD2, MMW, EST, Blockhead, Galactic, Miles Davis, Pink Floyd, Black Flag, Fugazi, The Evens........

Interests (non-headphone)

Books, movies, cars, games, slot cars(no really)

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

My Galaxy Note 2
