Headphone Inventory

Audeze LCD-2 Rev.2 (Favorite soundsignature of any headphones I've tried, too bad the soundstage is lacking)
Audio-Technica ATH-ES700 (Wonderful Portable Headphones)
AKG K271 (Sort of sound like a less bassy Q701 without the soundstage, useful for listening where isolation is needed)
Sennheiser HD-800
Shure SE215 (Got to have a pair of IEMs I guess, they are only used when I really need something ridiculously portable.)

Some previous headphones:
Grado SR60e (Sold: Too uncomfortable and too open to be a portable, just an awkward duck, good for the price though)
AKG Q701 (Sold to friend that needed good headphones for gaming)
Bose Triport (Broke within a couple months I was 14 and didn't know about better headphones)
ATH-M50 (Everyone couldn't shut up about these guys so I went and bought them with guitar center warranty. Luckily that paid off because 20 months later they broke.)
HD598 (Old friend needed some good headphones so I hooked it up with these)
Beyerdynamic DT990 (Love at first listen, but my stupid modding killed them)
Beyerdynamic DT770 (needed closed backs but these were just awful piercing treble and only seemed to have sub-bass.)
Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear: (Wanted some portables, Looked nice, but I didn't particularly like the sound.)
Polk Hinge (Same story as above, and way too much bass)
Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro (My brother's headphones now)
