Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):

Reading headphone reviews. Listening to music. アニメ。

What I do for a living:

Full time student.

Headphone Inventory

Current:
AKG k701 (Full size studio) (Home reference) (Sound Signature: Analytical)
Creative Aurvana Live! (Full size portable) (Fun!) (Sound Signature: Bassy)
HiFiMan RE-400 (IEM) (Sound Signature: Neutral)

I prefer a slightly analytical-neutral sound signature. Clarity, balance, neutrality, technical performance and detail are of utmost importance.

In the context of well recorded tracks, mixing and equalising is the artist and sound engineer's art. Respect art.

Cable Inventory

Cable agnostic.

Power-Related Components

Firewood. Lots of it.

Audio-Related Tweaks

Reading biased, overhyped headphone reviews and then spending lots of money on the aforementioned headphones./sarcasm

Cleaning your ears. Earwax buildup inhibits the transmission of high frequency sounds. No jokes.

Music Preferences

Mostly Rock, rock/pop, alternative rock, J-rock, J-rock/pop, prog rock but not pop/mainstream stuff in general. A little bit of DnB, Electronic, Indie, Punk Rock, Synthpop... and many others, with the exception of rap (do you even call that singing?), dubstep and other ear bleeding genres.

Orchestral OST's and instrumentals from various Anime/VNs/Games. Classical. Contemporary.

Well recorded albums only.

Interests (non-headphone)

Cycling, Biology, Japanese Language

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

15.6" Laptop

Trek 7300 Bike

~Fountain Pens~
Pilot Decimo F
TWSBI 580 EF
