Headphone Inventory

*Current Headphones*

1) Ultrasone Pro 900 (BASS <3)

2) Denon D2000 (Cups Dampened + Alpha pads)

3) Ultrasone ProLine 2500 (Amazing 3d soundstage/Lovely Clear Mids)


*Current In-Ears*

Yamaha EPH-100 (Comply Tips) - Wonderful IEM, nice bass, nice midrange, nice treble. My go-to in-ear. Great sound directly out of ipod. Great fit. Probably the best 120 you can spend for IEM's.

Altec Lansing Backbeat Pro (Comply Tips) - Comply tips save this guy. Not bad, more mid centric sound.

*Previous Headphones*

Grado 325i- Didn't like it comfort wise, very very bright, too much treble for me.

V Moda M-100- Lame treble. Overpriced. Pro 900 is light years ahead of this headphone. They don't even compare.

Sony XB-700- Bass overwhelms everything.

Beyerdynamic Pro 990 (250 Ohm)- Very detailed. Slightly too much treble (And I like Treble!). Scooped out midrange really badly. It sounded like something was missing. Disappointed with it, but super comfortable.

Grado 60i W/ Senn Pads- Comfortable, but really ugly looking. Feel super cheap. For someone that only has only 70 bucks, it would be hard to top the sound quality. I feel like these are a great introduction to quality sound.

HiFiMan 400- Nice sound, but electronic music sounds way better on my Ultrasones. I listen mainly to electronic, so I didn't find much use for these. Ortho drivers just do not do bass impact like dynamic drivers.

Ultrasone 780- Nice sound, but the Pro Line is much better. The Pro 900 kills it. If I couldn't afford it, this would be a nice alternative. The pleather pads heated up quickly, which was also annoying. The velour pads on the pros stay cool.

Ultrasone Pro 2900 - Detail machine. Open airy sound. Very bright, lots of treble.

Ultrasone Pro 750 - I prefer the 900.

*Previous In-Ears*

TF10- Huge buds, bad seal, Awkward cable, good sound but not designed well. Over-rated.

Monster Turbines- I actually quite liked them, but both times the cable broke leading to sound from only one side. Disappointing.

Sennheiser IE8- Really disappointing, just didn't sound good, and were ugly to boot.

T-PEOS H-100 - Kind of weird sounding. Tin-can type sound. Treble was harsh. Left side stopped working, but I didn't like them much anyways.

Headphone Amp Inventory

1) Venturecraft Go-Dap X (Upgraded LME 10 Ohm)

This thing is absolutely fantastic, and I don't like to listen without it.
Really brings a HP from 70 to 95 percent.
Probably the most important audio component I've ever bought.

This plus the Pro 900 / D2000 is pure bliss.
