About Me:

From Melbourne, Australia. Motion Designer, DJ, Camera and audio gear lover.

What I do for a living:

Make stuff look cool and move around on screen

Headphone Inventory

Ultrasone Signature DJ - my perfect sound signature for most music listening
AKG K7XX (great value, amazing for gaming)
JVC HA-FXT90 (Bargain!!! Great dual driver portables/IEMs I can throw around)
Beyerdynamic DT1350

Fostex TH600 (amazing, probably the fave pair I've ever had and only sold due to moving overseas. no lack of mids for me, though I mainly listen to electronic so I'm not picky when it comes to rendering of guitars and such as I don't listen to that kind of music heaps)

V-Moda M-100 (nice fun bass and comfy with XL pads but too loose sounding/boomy and muffled; lacking detail)

HiFiMan HE-400 (Enjoyable, deep & punchy bass, a little lacking in detail, treble sometimes sharp/weird, soundstage pretty average / boxed in for open cans, but mainly the problem was TOO HEAVY)

Ultrasone Pro-900 (amazing bass, terrible everything else, cold, sibilant and harsh)

Beyerdynamic T70 (no bass, great mids, bit too bright/sibilant)

Shure SRH840 (as above but less detailed, not great extension, average)

Headphone Amp Inventory

Matrix M-Stage, Audioengine D1, Fiio E17

Source Inventory

Audioengine D1, Fiio E17, Sony Xperia Z3

Other Audio Equipment

Audioengine A2+ white
Ableton Push Controller + Live 9, Komplete 9

Music Preferences

Electronic (Breaks, Dub, DnB, IDM, Glitch, Ambient, Psy, Techno, Experimental), Rock/Alternative/Indie, Jazz, Soul/Funk; anything awesome really.

Interests (non-headphone)

Motion Graphics & Animation, Photography, Film, Art
