What silence said... then nothing.
- Aug 9, 2010
As for gear, I really haven't been too invested in it since early last year or thereabouts. Most of it was unloaded by that point.
For on-the-go listening, I use a Sony Walkman; either a newer Android model or a vintage cassette player. Collecting vintage Walkmans is a hobby unto itself.
I mostly just throw on some Koss PortaPros for the sake of convenience and peace of mind.
I kept a few pairs of earphones like the Shure SE846s and Noble K10s.
At some point I'm gonna pick up a production Liquid Carbon to pair with them.
Home rig consists of my turntable and Raidho monitors, the latter of which I got at quite a discount since they were floor models.
I really don't listen to headphones as much with good speakers in house. That, or I'll just listen to my mediocre car speakers.
For digital I've got my Stax SR-007 headphones (or "earspeakers"). Those, the Jecklins, Code X, and Abyss are what I kept.
The SR-007 is my go-to though.
Okay so I've got a Sony R10 & Qualia in climate controlled storage. Some day I'll sell them to a collector b/c I never listen to them.
The only headphones I've heard as of late that have impressed me were the HiFiMan HE-1000s.
They are definitely up there in the headphone pantheon; among the most neutral production headphones I can recall.
Might get a pair eventually
Not really interested in IEMs these days. The Shures as K10s honestly nail the sound I want.
Good to see you re-engage. Any Swans sitting inside your living room (Shindo gear)? Did you at least reach out to Matt (Pitch Perfect Audio)?
