My new downsized collection

ATH-AD2000: Unbelievably intimate and emotionally engaging headphones. Colored mids may not be suitable for everyone.
ATH-W1000x: Nice all-rounders with strong bass and fantastic detail, in all ends of the spectrum. Midrange coloration still present but more subtle than the AD2000s. If you don't like the AD2000s, the W1000X might be to your liking. Great work by Audio Technica.
STAX SRS-2050A: Detailed, lightning fast, always gives me a hankering to upgrade to the O2s. Still on loan to my friend.
ATH-M50: Still fun to listen to.
AKG K701: Get's very little play time these days. They still impress in many ways, but they are very lacking in comparison to the AD2000 and W1000X which has a sound signature I prefer.

Monster Turbine Pro Gold: Addresses some of my caveats with the TF10s and improves on them in many ways. They just suit my musical preferences better.

As for the W1000X, gratuitous headphone porn shots are coming shortly.

Oh great moar updates from you.Keep them coming man! :D

I still playing around with KSC75 by using the modified cable of them.It seems like the sound signature can be different depending what audio plug,cables and how you soldering the connectors between the drivers and the wire as well.

I found this when I'm comparing the latest recabled version of KSC75 which I got around 2 months ago compared to the the old recabled ver. of KSC75 that I had last year.I found that although both of the product is the same outside (same cable,different color through but that shouldn't change anything right?).I realized that the new KSC75 feels way sharper and it has better clarity then the old KSC75 which sounded dark and warm overall).

As I been told by the guy who made it,it seems that he's using different kind of soldering tools and tactics which is completely different compared to the year before this.Btw he just made this maxed out ver. of KSC75 for his good friend recently.

From what I heard it sounded way better then my recabled ver. of KSC75.And yeah those plugs cost twice then the headphone itself.Feels weird eh?Why ppl still consider buying this instead of spending on other cans which I think is more worth it.Probably gonna ask all of this later then when I have a chance to meet him face to face (he invited me to go over to his house.He also made a recabled ver. of Sennheiser HD650 which make the can to become more amp friendly then before.Gonna try this soon enough so stay tune!)

He did offer me to change the grado SR60 cable that I had years now to a better one free of charge.Gonna send him the can later in the morning :)

I don't believe in in-ear headphones, mostly because they can never stand up to the quality of regular headphones (unless you pay absurdly high, and even still that doesn't give you much better quality).

Anyway I own:

For xbox and PC the Sennheiser HD555 (which sound good on everything)

and for on the go the Koss Portapro.

Our house also has really old but in remarkably good condition AKG K340 (yes I realize how bad my mistake was just now, I put K301... baka me >_< ) headphones

Ours are in just a little bit worse condition than these

Heavily modified PortaPros (wood'n stuff)



PMB 25II (Beyer~like phones from the 70s, recabled, new pads, .etc + wood)

I really love those, sound similar to the Sennheiser 580

Improvised Headset for gaming :3

This neat thing is now the newest addition to my collection (not so impressive in comparation to some of you guys, but still I like it):

Shure SHR-440

Also bought some time ago:

Vivanco Aircoustic Studio Monitors (Would be nice if the bass didn't disappear when there's much of it. Also are very muddy after hearing my Shures)

Audio-Technica ATH-FC700 (Very "modern-sounding" headphones - lots of [not so hi-quality] bass. Would say I wasted $50, but they aren't THAT bad with modern Pop/JPop/Anime OPs [bass, very high, computer-corrected vocals etc.] and... Earth's "The Bees Made Honey in the Lion's Skull")

Also considering buing Panasonic RP-HTX7 because they were in Hanasaku Iroha. Just to make an otakuism-driven purchase. Don't have money for a Squier version (not to mention the original Fender one) of Mio's bass, so at least I'll have some headphones... ^_^

Currently using an old pair of AKG K240 Sextett LPs that a friend gave to me for free as a thanks for helping him clean his basement; they're being driven by an Aune MKII amp/dac.

Trying to sell my MDR-7506s and HD555s in order to raise money to buy a pair of Ultrasone HFI-780s, not having any luck with that though...

recently sniped old K140 600ohm

they sounded so mighty fine that I made the hassel to route some wood cups and add new/bigger K141 pads.


close up

quite fine I guess.

My collection consists of only one thing, which I very recently acquired:

Now, this isn't exactly what I wanted but I just couldn't afford anything more expensive. However, I'm actually quite satisfied with their performance and isolation and, even though they were kinda tight for the first 3 days, I wore them for two hours straight today and was completely ok with it. Now that my comfort concerns are gone, I feel like I've made a really nice choice based on my budget.

First proper headphones I got were Sennheiser HD202s

After liking the improvement from crappy iPod earbuds I bought Sennheiser HD205s

And then I made a pretty big jump price and quality-wise then went for a set of Alessandro MS1i's which are a modified Grado SR80. I love them so I doubt I'll need a new set anytime soon.

I was sure I already posted here, hm....

Well anyway. I'm an AKG fan, so I currently have:
AKG K312P earbuds:

AKG K450 mini headphones, I use these daily:

And an old pair of AKG T206AFC wireless:

I also have an AKG K416P, but the cable got busted a while back, and I'm being to lazy to fix it. Thankfully the K450 has an interchangeable cable so I don't have to worry about that.

... And yeah, I have some Sony Ericsson and Philips earbuds that I got with my mobile/mp3, but who cares about that. Right now I'm saving up for a new pair, but I'm yet to decide which one. I like mini headphones, and both K840KL and K945NC are smokin' hot, but then there's K701... And you can't say no to Mio's choice. :3

My old pair snapped in half so now I have a Sony MDR-XD200. They're comfy and have decent sound. They're my at home on the computer set.
