About Me:

Living the dream

Headphone Inventory

• Cosmic Ears CE6B (Smooth reassuring sound. Helps on long flights. Sakura cable)

• Yamaha EPH-100 (Great isolation. Smooth)
• Ocharaku Co-Donguri Shizuku
• Vsonic AN16 (Limited 16th Anniversary GR07)

• Etymotic Research - HF2 (Practically an ER4 with a Mic)
• 4in1 (MMCX mic cable)

• Venture Electronics VE Monk (original)

Not Used So Much
• Apple BA Dual Driver (Actually a good IEM. Apple should have replaced their current / old earbuds with this, instead of having to buy this stand alone)
• Audio Technica CK400i (Not great. But good for running)
• Monoprice 8320 (Budget. Good on dangerous holidays)
• RHA MA350 (It's a Scottish wunderkind. Now with wife who won't let them go)
• Sennheiser CX 300 (The original one)
• Vsonic GR04 (Feels like a weird EQ, I think Vsonic is still prototyping their sound with this release)
• Vsonic VSD5 (Quite detailed, with a fine low end. Debatabley sibilant)
• Ultimate Ears UE400vi/UE500vi (Excellent for a single driver. Annoying cables)

Former Gear
• Audio Technica ESW9 - Woodies (Pretty and Good)
• Audio Technica ATH IM70 (Next gen. Great for trance)
• Audio Technica ATH CKS77 (Bass Monster) Now under "Former Gear" as the cat has chewed the cable off.
• Mee Audio Pinnacle P1 (Mee's TOTL. Zinc housing)
• Sennheiser Amperiors (Low impedance aluminium HD25. Amazing. Little annoying if you wear glasses)
• Sennheiser HD380 PRO (Analytical);
• Sony MDR 1ABT (LDAC Bluetooth when paired with Sony Walkman)
• Sony MDR EX1000 (With Japanese market RK-EX1000LP cable. Paired with Spiral Dots / comply mod.)
• Sony MDR V55 (Good for its price-point)
• V-Moda Crossfade LPs (No longer owned. Returned. Sounds like an AM radio)
• Vsonic VSD2 (Came with the AN16 :) )
• Ultimate Ears Triple Fi 10
