I have a real addiction to headphones which I suspect I'm not alone in My collection consists of a number of headphones for various listening situations - a few different sets of full size for at home and one then that I use in terms of an IEM on the move. So this is what I've gathered over the years and my prefered listening scenarios...
Starting with my pride and joy, the Sennheiser HD650 - I have these about a year and love them... they are mainly for listening to CDs or vinyl at home... Nothing like sitting down at night and chosing an album to sink into with these on.
Next are probably what get most use which are my IEMs, the Sennheiser IE8 - again absolutely love them and never leave home without them. I travel a fair amount so these are essential for flights, trains, buses etc. I had the IE6s prior to these but they have been since passed on to my wife.
Then my DJing headphones and a set I've used also when going on family holidays, the Sennheiser HD25-1 ii... they are a perfect travel companion for longer flights (great noice cancellation) plus good and durable getting thrown in and out of bags, kids using them on portable DVD players etc. They've seen better days though as I've had them years, I need to replace both ear pads - gone through some serious abuse though in terms of parties, falling asleep with them on, standing on them etc etc etc... the sound in one ear can drop off at times so a cable replacement also required!
I made a big mistake about 2 years ago and bought a set of the Bose Around-Ear headphones, a seriously boring set of headphones with really flat sound. I use them mostly now to fall asleep as I don't mind too much if I wake with them crushed under me - in fairness I've fallen asleep many a time and found them under me at some point during the night, they've surived well but still the worst set of headphones I've bought... oh I will say that they are a very comfortable set and especially light on the head. Thankfully I didn't pay full price as I work in the electronics industry and had access at a better price Actually, I'd like recommendations to replace these - something very light, durable and closed so that they do not disturb my wife!
Finally, my latest addition are the AIAIA TMA-1 - I've only had them a day and already in love... these will take up the role of DJing and probably travel. They've had generally very positive reviews, all of which so far I agree with.
Numerous others that I want but can't have for now anyway... I'd love something from Grado, Audio Technica, Shure to name a few. I reckon Grado are next on the list though when possible.
So what do you stick on your head?!
