What was your first headphone purchase after coming to Head-Fi?

None yet, but can't decide between DT880's or CD3k's. =(

Sennheiser HD497 was the first headphone i got since coming here, not that anyone actually recommended it to me, but the bloke in the shop talked me into it.

My headphone rig has come on quite a way since then, and I have owned half a dozen headphones since....

I had Porta Pros and Sony MDR-V6 before coming here. I got HD580 and K1000 after a few months.

A Stefan AudioArt Equinox cable for my SEnn 600s. Both were then sold to get the AT W1000, which was sold to get the Sony CD3000, which I still own.

Was uber newb when I joined...

went with 2 HD590s, read through like 3 threads and felt stupid for even buying the 590s in the first place, replaced one with an HD600 and gave my dad a nice present.

Now, i'm on the verge of buying a Grado, but I can't find a place to audition em.

I lurked here for about a month getting feedback on what's the best bang for the buck in headphones. After living with Grados and Sonys for years I decided comfort was what I really needed since I no longer can stand things in or touching my ears and closed cans make my ears sweat profusely. I found a good deal ($150 shipped) on new Senn 580's...they fit perfect and sound wonderful.

For an amp I want a used maxed-out Meta or wait for a PPA. Cardas cable upgrade after that. DVD-A/SACD's sound luscious out of my new Pioneer DV-563A universal player....will the madness never end? A good theme song for this forum is "While My Wallet Gently Weeps".

I'm pretty sure it was a META 42 and CHA 47 along with some mini to mini interconnects, all built by the master himself - JMT! Not a bad way to start out on head-fi.

I bought the ER4P, as my first post was asking people to encourage me to buy it. Of course, there wasn't any problem getting people to do that.

Before coming here, I had the Senn HD495, which I still own, but do not use for anything beyond watching television.

gah damn head-fi. Lesse...
v6, Sr125/cmoy, Mx500, KSC 35, Mx400.. got ATH-EM7s on their way hopefully. I keep avoiding SR325s and HD600s, but my wallet keeps trying to open by itself.
