Headphone Inventory

Order of preference:
1. Audio-Technica ATH-W5000 - warmer tone than the W1000X. Enjoy using this headphone the most due to its midrange and treble. Classical especially.
2. Beyerdynamic T1 (with 100Ω resistor adaptor) - does every genre well, more open and flat sound than the ATs. Prefer the mids and treble of the W5000.
3. Sennheiser HD650
4. Audio-Technica ATH-W1000X - very close to preference with the HD650, but end up reaching for the W5000 more if I want the AT sound.

Past:
Audio Technica ATH-AD700X
Steel Series Siberia V2 USB (I don't game anymore, but these are great for Skype calling)
