These things are like potato chips "I bet you can't just have one!"   It's apparent that many here collect, buy, sell, trade many headphones, I began being curious about many each of your have  ----- at a given time point... like now.  We might also be interested in designing a poll that aggregates the number

4.... Much like Dyaems actually.  My 4th was a prize from a contest. 
Ultrasone for bassy music and general electronica
HD598 for general music
SR60i for metal and trebly stuff
 
Amperiors for portable use I guess.

Before I started purging the collection, I had 10 or 11, I only used like 2 of them continuously, so I sold everything else, and have recently started selectively trying out new models. I do not want to go back to 10 or 11.

The list was:

AKG K701
Audio-Technica ATH-ESW9
Koss ESP/950, ESP/10, KPH7
Sony MDR-SA5000, MDR-F1, MDR-EX082
Denon AH-C751
Kenwood KH-K1000
Sennheiser HD 580

And then intermittently I had both Bose around-ear sets, both Ultrasone open models, and another pair of Koss cans on-hand (but have not had 15 at once).

And I called it: wire madness!

From that, only the ESPs, IEMs, and F1s remain. I feel weird selling the IEMs because I've used them (it seems unhygienic - not that I'm unhygienic, but I feel weird selling something like that, just like I'd feel weird selling a comb, pillow, or hat), and they need new tips anyways.

I have 6 pr but only use two or three often. They are mostly for different environments. Home use is the K701, RS-1 and HE-6. For work I use the Ety 4s and ATH-EW-9.

I have three:
 
Sony MDR-CD900ST's for serious music listening.
Sony MDR-7509's for movies, games, and casual listening.
Sony MDR-ZX700's for when I need isolation, or need something portable.

I've got:
 
Sennheiser HD 600
Sennheiser HD 428
Audio Technica ATH M50
 
I've been looking into getting a pair of Grados, just to try out, but I'm torn between them, or a new amp for my HD 600's.

I voted 3 and those three happen to be kiddie headphones. Skullcandy Hesh 2 (yes, I know :p), sennheiser RS-170, and turtle beach DX12. BUT!! I'm sort of getting started with actual quality headphones (Sony MDR-V6 will be delivered to my doorstep this Monday!). Should be interesting.

you should add in a 30 + section and see how many hits you get.
