About Me:

I'm Crazy.

Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):

Hobbies:
-Sound Editing and Mixing
-Casual Art
-Engineering/Tinkering
-Making DELICIOUS coffee.

What I do for a living:

Currently Unemployed. Looking for a position in something I enjoy.

Headphone Inventory

OLD:
1-Logitech's H390 Headset : Broke after 10 years of use. > Terrible playback, over-sensitive mic.
2-Plantronic's Gamecom 377 : Lost. > The headphone that got me into Audiophilia. Very thin sound.
4-Superlux's HD681 EVO : Gifted to my father. > These were modded, father liked sound more with the mod.

Current:
3-Audio-Technica's ATH-PRO700MK2 > Stock pads SUCK. get Gel ear cushions, you will thank me later.
5-Beyerdynamic's DT990 > Bent headband to fit head better. I found out I love clamping force, something these don't have.

Headphone Amp Inventory

Desktop:
-Sony's STR-DE697 > integrated Amp of this Receiver. (I never use the headphone out, portable amp is far superior)

Portable:
-Fiio's E12 Mont Blanc > Beastly monster. has Overkill 16 dB gain switch.

Source Inventory

Desktop:
-SMSL M8 = good dac, very clean output. DSD does sound different then PCM. DSD sounds better in the treble significantly. else, identical.

Audio-Related Tweaks

Equalizer APO (not using much more, Windows only, I'm using Arch Linux more.)

Music Preferences

I'll listen to just about anything.
However my mood effects what i will listen to.

Though I seem to be fond of EDM with jazzy roots.

Interests (non-headphone)

Coffee
