    what is the history of your headphone(s)?

    with all the buying and selling going on here, it's interesting to know how far peopl's cans have gone, how many owners it has had, modding history and any unique events. my k1000s were bought from ttvj in 2005 by some1x, sent to moon audio in 2006 to be blue dragon hardwired, sold to seacard...
