Headphone Inventory

~in order of purchase~
✓ Koss Porta Pro (downfall: pulls on my hair, sound leakage)
Audio-Technica ATH-AD900 (downfall: slightly thin sounding at times, lack of bass, sound leakage)
Fischer Audio Eterna rev.1
Fischer Audio Silver Bullet ("You're Lucky!" promo edition)
Jays q-Jays (downfall: difficult to get a good seal)
Beyerdynamic DT250-80 (downfall: midrange has a bit of glare, slight treble roll off)
✓ Ultimate Ears TripleFi.10 (downfall: recessed mids, or prepare to up the volume)
Monster iBeats (bundled with HTC Sensation XE)
Ultrasone DJ1 Pro (occasionally has its good moments with soundstage)
Fostex T50RP (quite natural sounding; downfall: mids resonance can become fatiguing)
✓ Audio-Technica ATH-W1000X (can be great for vocals and can really get my toes tapping, wood finish is surprisingly durable *cough*)
✓ Beyerdynamic DT250-250 (crisp and open sound; downfall: can be a bit bright without proper amplification)
Sony MDR-V6
✓ Denon AH-D2000 with Denon AH-D5000 wood earcups (nice, warm and musical; downfall: vocals can be too warm and a bit recessed)
✓ Fostex TH-900 (your music with MSG sprinkled on top)
AKG K340 (electrostat-dynamic systems, green dynamic driver housing, no text on headband) (nice soundstage; downfall: mids can be too warm)
AKG K340 (electrostatic-dynamic systems, grey dynamic driver housing, "AKG" on headband) (a bit too much glare)
Ultrasone Pro 900 (great performance even unamped) (no real complaints, might lack treble sparkle)
Yamaha HP-1 (very nice imaging and layering)
Yamaha YH-1 (slightly brighter than HP-1)
✓ Sennheiser HD 800 (VERY nice detail, layering, speed and clarity)

Source Inventory

(no clue how these are supposed to be)

Audinst HUD-MX1
(harsh and grainy)

FiiO E7
(plain sound but low impedance and digital volume control makes it okay for IEMs)

HTC Sensation XE
(grainy sound, output impedance seems to be too high for TF10)

Jabra BT3030
(surprisingly decent sound for Bluetooth)

✓ DACport with headphone linearity mod
(current benchmark - forgiving, nice full sound, good PRaT/dynamics compared to others listed)

HRT Headstreamer
(sound became fuller and less metallic/bassy after firmware update to 1.8; currently used with speakers due to convenience)

✓ Apex Glacier
(new toy - quite nice layering and separation though signature might be V-shaped)

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