|Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):
|What I do for a living:
||Order of preference:
1. Audio-Technica ATH-W5000 - warmer and smoother and more refined than the W1000X. Enjoy using this headphone the most due to its midrange and treble. Classical especially.
2. Beyerdynamic T1 (with 100Ω or 175Ω 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 (W5000 earpads) - very close to preference with the HD650, but end up reaching for the W5000 more if I want the AT sound.
Audio Technica ATH-AD700X
Steel Series Siberia V2 USB (I don't game much anymore, but these are great for Skype calling)
|Headphone Amp Inventory
||Meier Audio Corda Classic - probably the only amp that I need for a while, handles all my headphones with aplomb
Asus Xonar Essence STX
||Meier Audio Corda Daccord - love its crossfeed and bass boost
iPod Shuffle 2GB + Apple earbuds
Qobuz - 320kbps
foobar2000 - ALAC (I found iTunes most convenient for ripping CDs)
