    Headphone Inventory:
    Beyer T70p (32 ohm) closed back, now used with Shure SRH1840 pads, previously used with Beyer DT770 pads (have also tried Shure SRH1540 pads, Beyer Amiron pads and Beyer DT1770 pads)

    Philips Fildelio X2 (have it several months and liking it)

    B&0 Play H6 closed-back (decent sound but only use for outdoor use)

    Fostex T40RP Mk3 used with Shure SRH1840 pads (the closed back version, liking it and preferring it to the T60RP. Trying various mods and have removed the plastic cup vent covers on the inside to make it open. Vents can be easily covered on the outside for isolation and tuning when required)

    Yamaha HPH-MT220 closed back (modded with modded sheep skin leather pads and new cable)

    KZ ZS10 Pro
    Ikko OH1 (will go)
    Tin Audio T3 (might go)

    BGVP DMG (in ear) gone
    Dunu Titan1 (in ear) gone

    Paradigm Shift E3M (in ear, rarely used)

    Previously had:
    Audioquest Nighthawk Carbon (was disappointed and returned it)
    AKG K812 Pro (Good for Jazz but not good for vocals, IMO)
    AKG K712 Pro (too much mid bass for me that gives too much body and mid-bass to female vocals)

    Focal Listen (disappointed with it and very uncomfortable)
    Fidue A73 IEM (decent but ?)
    HiFiMan HE400i (was liking it, good for vocals but one of the drivers failed (solder joint) after 2 weeks and one of the yokes broke ). Bought a replacement 400i but it had a stiff yoke so returned it and will look for something better.
    HiFiMan Sundara, too tight on my head, good but a bit in your face, which can verge on irritating.
