What I do for a living:

Marine Engineer

Headphone Inventory

Etymotic ER-4S
Beyerdynamic DT770 PRO 250ohm
Sennheiser IE80
Stax SR-407
Koss PortaPro
Shure SE215
Klipsch S4
Bose original IEMs

Sennheiser HD800s and the FitEar Parterre will be my next purchases later this year.

Headphone Amp Inventory

FiiO E09K (power supply has just recently died - apparently a fairly common problem with this unit)
FiiO E17
Stax SRM-454S

Will be ordering an O2 whenever I get around to it.

Source Inventory

Astell & Kern AK100II

My computer. I use MediaMonkey. (I highly recommend MediaMonkey. I've been using it for over 10 years and I can't say enough good things about it. Especially good for people with large music collections. I find Foobar to be highly overrated and clunky. Foobar has slightly better .cue support over MediaMonkey and nothing else. It seems to be an uniformed hipster program more than anything else). I connect to the AK100II through USB and use that. Surprisingly I find that the AK100II can push the 250ohm DT770 Pro's well enough.

Have but not currently used for music:

iPad Air 2
iPhone 6
iPhone 5
iPhone 4S
iPhone 3G
3 iPod classics
2 iPod Nanos

I usually rip CDs to .flac with EAC as soon as I get them. After which, I put the CD on the shelf and rarely touch it again. haha
