gargling, greco-roman wrestling, gladiator movies, various mental illnesses
too many to list without embarrassment. some current faves, with brief comments (in no particular order):
simgot em2--transparent and refined; a go-to for critical listening. tip sensitive.
kz zs7--warm, energetic and enveloping, if not a paragon of accuracy
kz ed16--well tuned and more natural sounding than the pricier KZ hybrids
nice hck hk6--giant stage; ruthlessly revealing, with a prominent midbass focus
senfer ues--balanced and remarkably refined for a cheap piece, with particularly noteworthy instrument placement.
ibasso it01--brightish and bassy; easy to drive, great isolation and rich sounding, with a large holographic stage.
bosshifi b3s--more v-shaped than the (excellent) original b3, while retaining the same great overall clarity
pioneer sech9t--excellent daily driver--refined without compromising on the fun factor. layering/imaging are exceptional.
simgot en700 bass--beautifully built and more balanced than touted, with lush, full-bodied mids and highs and wide, uncongested stage. very natural sounding.
fidue a73--warmish and generally balanced, but with deep enhanced low end; loud, immersive and a real live-in-concert feel.
focal sphear--well-rounded mainstream player; thick-textured with a smooth non-fatiguing signature.
pmv a01 mk2--nicely balanced and extremely "analog" sounding; big immersive soundstage, although bass isn't quite as well etched as some
tennmak dulcimer--crystal clear throughout the spectrum, with deep tight bass
music maker tk13--more refined and less aggressive/bassy than the tk12, with similarly large stage and clarity.
trinity delta--big and warm sounding, with wide stage and particularly accurate instrument placement
meelec a161p--considerable punch for a single BA; lush sounding and very forgiving of source
kz edr1--when suitably powered, these are remarkably good for $5.
over ear/on ear
faael snow lotus (really, really good)
he 150 pro (good)
yinman 150 (lacks some sparkle/detail)
currently under evaluation:
i do most of my listening on the go from a lg v30, occasionally with a u-dac or topping nx1s, which obviously skews my preferences
shoegaze, power pop, hard bop, jangly guitars, classic soul
