Music Preferences

Metal, electronic, orchestral, neoclassical darkwave, pop, rock, rap, jazz, R&B, folk, opera...nearly everything.

some metal bands I like: http://www.head-fi.org/t/397407/l... (post 15221)

Interests (non-headphone)

Listening to music, composing music, recording music, performing music, performing sick, twisted experiments *on* music, collecting music, selling music, teaching music, reading about music, talking about music, thinking about music... did I mention I like music?

I have been in everything from orchestras to jazz bands to metal bands, and have done vocals practically my entire life, piano since ~1993, and trombone and guitar since ~1996.

I wanna hear the very best, like no one ever heard. To catch them is my real test, to review them is my cause. I will travel across Head-Fi, searching far and wide. Each headphone to understand the power that's inside. Gotta catch 'em all!

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

manual SLR camera
Pentax K1000

mobile hotspot
Karma Go

countless video game consoles
