    Occupation:
    Computer programmer
    Headphone Inventory:
    Current:
    Stax 009 (two)
    Stax L700
    Stax 007 Mk I (71xxx serial)
    Audio Technica ATH-L3000
    Sennheiser HD650-ish (2012 HD650 replacement drivers in rare HD580 Jubilee body) w/ 2004 Equinox XLR cable
    Sennheiser HD650 (2003 model; darker smoother sound) w/ Zu Mobius XLR cable

    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 (sounds decent overall, but a very mediocre $1500 headphone)
    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 - way too bright with bowl pads; way too muddy with flats; OK with old vwap pads but never gonna get to where you want it)
    Headphone Amp Inventory:
    BHSE
    Balanced hev90 (DIY build from someone else)
