    I'm only here for 6.5 years but feel like an old fart....................60+ headphones owned or auditioned and loving the audio life. Like both my headphones (HE-6SE primarily, Pioneer SE Master 1, Denon LA7000 which I bought 6 years ago and still adore!, LCD-2C all out of vintage amps. Pioneer vintage amps my first love and they drive all these headphones like a champ...............as well as driving my Cerwin Vega DX-5 speakers. I guess I'm an old fart (58 years old) with a love for old stuff.

    I started listening to headphones in the mid 1970s. Sennheiser and Koss was put on my head and my eyes got big. Had a set of nice Koss headphones in the early 1980s.....but didn’t really consider headphones audiophile? Had the Sony V6 and then around the mid 1990s purchased the Sony MDR-CD-870 Headphones. Still reading audiophile magazines in the 1990s I saw expensive Grado headphones. I thought wow, those are expensive; they must sound good.

    It was a funny thing walking into that audiophile shop in 1995 to buy the Grado headphones. They didn’t have any headphones but pushed me into this room to hear a multichannel Steely Dan SACD? It all made me miss my tube amp and Sony 870s? Fast Forward till I saw AKG-701s in a Guitar Center? I went on-line in 2006 and saw Tyll Hertsens with a pair of k701s on smiling? Here was these people at a show or meet, and they were really into headphones? What is this place, who are these people? Wow... they really are into headphones? I had used headphones regularly since 1982, but I guess I wasn’t aware of how far I could go?
