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.

||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.
||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.
||Cycling, Biology, Japanese Language
|Gear-Fi (Favorite Non-Audio Gear & Gadgets)
Trek 7300 Bike
Pilot Decimo F
TWSBI 580 EF
