How I'd rank the headphones I have listened to:

Tier 1:
HiFiMan HE-560 - ohhh hayaku HAYAKU

Tier 2 (AKA **** I'm really interested in):
Grado PS500 - usual Grado forwardness, but w/ a more lively midbass and softened highs
Shure SRH1840 - very good for Japanese female vocals, but the bass is lacking
Grado RS1i - best headphone for metal I've tried

Tier 3 (AKA **** I'm interested in):
Sennheiser HD650 - all rounder; takes away all harshness but adds no excitement
Focal Spirit Professional

Tier 4:
Sennheiser HD598 - the magic comes from how it can mellow out all recordings
Beyerdynamic DT880 Pro - detailed, good bass, but VERY disappointing mids
Grado SR125i - where's the bass? jk

Tier 5:
Logitech Ultimate Ears 4000 - actually sounds good w/ iTouch 2G & E12 combo
Beyerdynamic DT770
Grado SR80i
Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear
Beyerdynamic DT1350
Audio Technica M50
Grado SR60i

Source Inventory

FiiO E17
Sansa Fuze V1 (2x) - one with doggie bite marks, the other in good condition
Sansa Clip Zip - is now clipless
iPod Classic (7G) - wonky hard drive & click wheel, but almost always reliable
iPod Video (5G)
iPod Touch 2G - seems detailed, but really only because of a 1-2 dB boost in treble
iPod Nano 4G - makes a nice pair with the E12 and my SR125i
Nokia Lumia 610 - retired phone, **** Zune

Interested:
Schiit Bifrost (Uber w/ USB)
FiiO X1 (or if an X3 mk. II comes out)
Sony NWZ-A10 series walkman
Cowon M2

Cable Inventory

- FiiO L9 LOD cable, very sexy but has a bit of a disagreement with my E12
- The 3.5mm male to 3.5mm male audio cable that came with my FiiO E17 have the most seductive midrange ever
- The 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable I borrowed from my friend (came with his E18) is also as erotic sounding. Very good quality
- Another free 3.5 to 3.5mm came in, with my E12. Will see if it can provide me with as much sensual auditory pleasure

Want:
ALO Green Line iPod LOD cable (L9 cable blocks the E12's volume pot, while FiiO's straight LOD is too long)

Power-Related Components

Fluorescent lightbulbs, which add to the ambience of my listening session.
Also my electric fan for when I need my music to sound more airy.

Other Audio Equipment

Sandisk Class 10 32GB SD card. Previously had a 16GB one, but it managed to find a new home without me noticing. The 16GB has a more accurate dynamic range due to it having less scan times compared to the 32GB, although the 32GB is just as good if I let the song buffer for a second. If the 16GB is filled with songs to the brim, then some of them might be distorted due to the bits b/w different songs getting mixed up (so usually the higher the memory the better!!)

Music Preferences

Metal (mainly Thrash, Power, Black, and Melodic Death Metal), J-Pop/Anisong, Videogame OSTs and remixes

Interests (non-headphone)

"Audio."

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

ASUS S46C
Sony PS3 (fat, 160GB stock), PS2 (fat), PS1 (9000 series), and PSP-1000
Nintendo Wii, DSLite
