Re: Audiophile - Headphone Lovers?
I spent a few years chasing headphone perfection over at headfi- bought and sold a ton of stuff. I ended up growing tired of it all and now I have a sound proof room so I just use Ascend Sierra speakers (streaming lossless of course). All I have left is a pair of HD580s (I'm a Senn guy too), Shure SE 535, and a pair of UE11's that I haven't pulled out of the box in at least 2 years. My most used headphones- shure SE115 with the modular cable. I run them to a samsung BT receiver that clips to my shirt and synced to my phone mainly for audiobooks, podcasts and non-audiophile grade music from gmusic. Blasphemy I know, but it's liberating not feeling like I need to buy overpriced voodoo magic interconnects from ALO and carry a headphone amp everywhere I go.
It was entertaining while it lasted but ultimately it just proved to me that all hobbies teeter on the same slippery slope.
