About Me:

GA Tech Comp Sci 2K1

What I do for a living:

Computer programmer

Headphone Inventory

Current:
Stax 009 (two)
Stax L700
Stax 007 Mk I (71xxx serial)
Audio Technica ATH-L3000
Senn HD650-ish (HD650 drivers in rare HD580 Jubilee body)

Past:
Sony MDR-R10 (nice for classical, but totally not worth insane prices. awful headphone for rock)

Sony Qualia 010 (awesome headphone with a kinda awful midrange and fit issues...still somehow sounds awesome when the stars aligned. HD800 is a cheap knockoff of this.)

Grado HP-2 (three times! nice headphone, except for the complete lack of soundstage and horrific comfort)

Audio-Technica L3000 Leatherhead (3 times!)
Audio-Technica ATH-W2002 (w/ matching amp; pretty!! nice sounding but not stellar overall)

Audio-Technica ATH-W5000 (truly awful)
Audio-Technica ATH-W10VTG? (I may have got the model # a bit wrong, but it was the first wood headphone they did)

JVC HP-DX1000 (fun listen; lots of bass)
Ultrasone Edition 9 (the most mediocre $1500 headphone ever)
AKG K-1000 (meh)
AKG K340 (meh)
Sennheiser HD600 (awesome, but I liked HD650 better)
Sennheiser HD580 (deal of the century in headphones)

Grado RS-1 (twice: really vintage w/ wood box and less vintage w/ pizza box. not worth the price when you can get HD600/650)

Grado HF-1 (Serial #15! Should have kept; probably enjoyed this more than any other non-HP1000 Grado)

Grado RS-2 (meh++, maybe a better choice than RS-1 if you want a Grado for some reason)

Grado SR-225 (ugh)
