    Wherever I go, there I am...

    Headphone Inventory:
    Grado SR80e (Taking all suggestions for an upgrade from this)
    Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro (250)
    Sony MDR 7506 w/Beyer earpad mod (Grado's kick these in the teeth)
    Audio Technica ATH M40FS (Seems to need extended break-in to be listenable)
    Koss KSC75 clip ons (amazing for $15 bucks, great for workouts)

    A nice Boston Acoustics HD radio with a flaky on-off volume knob, that I can't fix.
    Audio-Related Tweaks:
    Does Tinnitus count?
    Music Preferences:
