Headphone Inventory

Current is (roughly) ranked by preference/usage; Past is alphabetized by mfgr.

Current:
Audio-Technica ATH-W5000
Koss ESP/950 (tied with TH-900)
Fostex TH-900 (tied with ESP/950)

Ultrasone PRO2900
Sony MDR-F1
Bose QC15Ltd

Koss MV1
Bose AE2w
Koss TBSE1

I also have Denon AH-C751 as my sole mobile headphone (they're IEMs) - I've tried a few others (listed in "Past"), but the C751 are ultimately "good enough" (for my minimal usage) and I haven't really investigated IEMs much beyond that.

Other (most of this is just in storage):
AKAI GXC-709D (storage)
Technics SH-AC500D (storage)
Yamaha CDV-W901 (hooked up to a TV now though, so rare audio use - brilliant CD player though)

Other Audio Equipment

If you consider them "gear" I have a pair of Etymotic Etyplugs that I carry with me everywhere (they came with a little plastic case that hooks on a keychain) - they're invaluable IMHO (and for the ~$10 - why not?). I also have Leight Leightning L3 for running my snow machine in the winter - they're quite comfortable (and isolate amazingly well) compared to other ear muffs I've tried in the past. Good hearing protection is never a bad idea imho.

Music Preferences

If it sounds good, it is good.
