Headphone Inventory

over-ear headphones:

Bose QuietComfort 15


Logitech Ultimate Ears 350

Apple earbuds

Headphone Amp Inventory

Legions of soul-devouring demon amps of impending doom from the horrendous underworld of anguish and gloom, lovingly fitted with molten tubes of brimstone for that irresistible smoked flavor, sucked into the gaping void of voracious nothingness, tested by wicked spirits of the abyss, approved by moms everywhere.

Abandon all hope, ye who amplify here...
