    Headphone Inventory:
    Audio Technica ATH M50X (Now sold): These were my first pair of headphones that really opened me up to a whole new world of sound in music. I sold them recently as I feel i have outgrown them, the bass was much too over emphasised bleeding too much into the mids and the highs were getting too sharp hurting my ears.

    Audio Technica ATH M70X (Now Sold): These were a great step up from the m50x offering a more neutral and rich sound. Neutral bass and highs were pulled back and clearer. I sold them however as I started to dislike the harsh invasive sound that closed headphones produced over open air headphones.

    HE 400S: (Now Sold) I bought these headphones as I loved the open airy rich and detailed sound they produced, they are a bright headphone without bring too sibilant however they do lack bass which I feel is under neutral

    HE400I: (Now Sold) They do everything the HE400S does right while adding in more bass which I feel is very accurate. Soundstage is slightly wider and is overall such a rich and accurate headphone. Produces for me a very full and exciting sound not holding anything back

    Hifiman massdrop 4XX(Now Sold): Essentially a cheaper version of the 400i, soundwise is identical for me so fantastic value for money

    Hifiman Sundara(Now sold): Moving on from the 4XX and 400I i choose the Sundara's, the soundstage is much larger providing an airy sound signature, sweeter vocals that are never harsh and in terms of clarity just that little bit better than the 400I. One area i wasn't too fond of however was the bass response which is quite lacking unless you go for bass heavy songs. This is compared to the 400I, while the bass response is weaker than the 400I the sub bass does go lower but i would have preferred there to be a little more mid bass.

    Hifiman Edition X V2: Was hesitant in buying these because of the price and was worried there wouldn't be that much difference between these and the Sundara's. How wrong i was, these blow the Sundara's away and are the best headphone i ever heard. They have a perfect bass response, accurate and never over-empowering but punchy, larger soundstage than Sundara with much better clarity. The sound feels much fuller than the Sundara's which i feel tries too hard to create an airy atmosphere by feeling quite distant at times. The HEX v2 is fuller, more presense while still maintaing that airy soundstage. Pretty much this is the headphone that combines the best of the 400s,400i and Sundara's and improves even further on all these aspects. My current headphone

    Massdrop Edition XX: These are essentially a HEX v2 and i bought them primarily to be a backup if anything happened to my HEXv2, thats how good they sound
