About Me:

I hate liars and bullies and cowards who complain, instead of being a man and confronting me.

Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):

Flirting, dining out at good restaurants, watching the latest movies, and Netflix.

What I do for a living:

I put up with my boss.

Headphone Inventory

Grado SR80e (wow, and I mean, wow)
Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro (250)
Sony MDR 7506 w/Beyer earpad mod (Grado's kick these in the teeth)
Audio Technica ATH M40FS (Seems to need extended break-in to be listenable)
Koss KSC75 clip ons (amazing for $15 bucks, great for workouts)

Gone:
Monoprice 108323 (Ear piece broke after < 1 yr of use, head band uncomfortable - don't buy these)
Razer Carcharias (broke after 6 yrs, nice while they lasted)
Sony MDR NC-40's (earpiece connection broke after 6-odd yrs)
Superlux HD 681 (broke after < 6 months of use, junk)

Headphone Amp Inventory

Schiit Magni
Bravo Audio V2 (one stock, one modified)
(I'm not cheap, I'm frugal.)

Gone:
Fiio E6 (these are junk IMO)

Source Inventory

Schiit Modi DAC
Pure i-20 iPod DAC (no longer sounds harsh - but I wonder why?)

Cable Inventory

Monoprice RCA cable (this was a mistake)
Auvio RCA cable
Mediabridge USB cable (this is pretty nice)

Other Audio Equipment

iPod shuffle and Nano
Various cheap tablets and bluetooth speakers - do those count?
Sony DEJ011 Portable CD Player (these are becoming rare)
A JVC home theater system that I want to replace
A pair of speakers I built myself 25 years ago, complete with a passive crossover I designed myself.
My cell phone has a radio in it.
A nice Boston Acoustics HD radio with a flaky on-off volume knob, that I can't fix. Sounds great when I can get it to turn on.

Audio-Related Tweaks

Does Tinnitus count?

Music Preferences

Mostly the Good Kind.

Interests (non-headphone)

I like going out to eat with my kids at every restaurant known to mankind.

Gear-Fi (Favorite Non-Audio Gear & Gadgets)

I have computers. Too many computers.
