Philips X2HR. This headphone is just so fun, in a beers-with-your-best-mates kind of way. Not the most sophisticated by any stretch of the imagination and a little rough around the edges, but god damnit I just always have a blast when I put this headphone on.

Empire Ears Bravado MK2, stock cable, 3.5 to 1/2in adapter, A90, D90, PC. It's... Completely insane. I've heard a lot of IEMs (see my gear list). These are the closest I've come to "speaker-like". I'll never get rid of my two channel system, and there after many things my full sized headphones do better... But if I had to sell everything and move across the world, these would tide me over till I could get "bigger" stuff again. Which is really saying something.

The Bravado MK2 is that but tiny, expensive, and more technically capable.

Sennheiser 660S>Magni/Modi>AmazonHD>Sarah Brightman & Andrea Bocelli singing "Time To Say Goodbye" from the Bocelli album "Romanza". There is a live version on YouTube that I love and this version on Amazon HD sounds the most like my favorite live version. It's the perfect way to end a nighttime listening session before bed.

Listening to Dori Caymii Kicking Cans through my new SIVGA SV021's via Shanling M6 Pro 21 with 4.4mm balanced cable.

This record is very well engineered and has a strong, almost V-shaped sound profile (fairly gentle on the treble however), so the SIVGA's were a bit too bassy for this one. Really reminds me that, for me, the SV021's are suited primarily to well-recorded acoustic only, and if electric bass or bass synth is employed it should be in an un-emphasized way. Regardless, I thought the music sounded pretty nice, just not ideal cans for the record's particular frequency profile

Been on a high-impedance can with otl tube amp kick for the last several weeks, so decided to mix things up. Aeon Flow Open X<Schiit Lyr 2 with Ediswan 6922s<Cayin Idac-6 on vacuum tube mode. Listening to Gord's Gold album by Gordon Lightfoot on Tidal MQA. Love the Aeons. They never fail to put a smile on my face.

Thank you! Yeah they sound great on everything I've tried them on. Definitely one of my favorite 6922s.
