About Me:

I have been into audio since I was 15 and bought my first AIWA bookshelf stereo. Upgrades ever since

Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):

Jamming music, and raising my son.

What I do for a living:

I run a kitchen at a nursing home. IEMs work great for when in my office.

Headphone Inventory

IEMs (From favorite to least favorite)

Fidue A83 (The most cohesive triple Hybrid I've heard. Great resolution and response in all frequencies)
DUNU Titan 1
Sidy DGS100 (Forward mid bass like the H3, still great detail and transparency)
