- Headphone Inventory
Currently I own one headphone: The Ultrasone Pro 750. Prior to this, dating back into the 1960's I've owned the following headphones (I'm not sure of the model numbers):
In addition I utilized several "studio grade" headphones which belonged to different recording studios intermittently over more than a 30 year period. Here again, I don't remember all of the model names or numbers but brands included
Sennheiser, Sony, Audio Technica, Panasonic, Koss, RCA, Electro Voice and probably some others I am not remembering now.
I have also had some experience with "audiophile grade" headphones which have included the AKG K 201, AKG K 701, Beyer Dynamic DT 770 Pro, Ultrasone Pro 750.
- Headphone Amp Inventory
Formerly: A custom built stereo system which housed a built-in dedicated headphone amp. I no longer have it because it was too big and out-dated. Currently, there are solid state amps (it was a tube amp) which are at least 10 times smaller and sound better.
An inexpensive dedicated headphone amp is connected to the sound card of my office computer. It's called Behringer Amp 800 and it sounds very good especially when it's inexpensive price is taken into consideration. I use it when I'm working on that computer.
Otherwise, I am considering buying a Lisa 3.
Often, I listen to headphones connected to sound boards.
- Cable Inventory
- I've never heard or owned a "custom" headphone cable. I have always used "stock" cables for headphones. I plan on hearing one sometime.
