What I do for a living:

Student (Law)
Analyst

Headphone Inventory

Order of preference:
1. Audio-Technica ATH-W5000 - probably my favourite for classical
2. Beyerdynamic T1 (with 100ohm resistor adaptor) - does every genre well, more open sound than the ATs
3. Audio-Technica ATH-W1000X
3. Sennheiser HD650 (currently using with 75ohm resistor adaptor)

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

Meier Audio Corda Classic - probably the only amp that I need for a while, handles all my headphones with aplomb
