MrSpeakers Alpha Dogs...
Fostex TH-X00 Ebony's. For the life of me I can't get the wood grain to show in the photos. Beautiful cans IMO!
An absolutely beautful system set up you have here.
Great set up
What amp do you use to power these?
Just receiver these today . Pioneer Monitor 10. Just a little shoe polish and they look as new ;-)
Those are beautiful!
I have some relatively nice headphones but I bet that cable costs more than any of my cans!
I know I am going to receive some flak for these since I’m probably the only one that has beats headphones on the forum. Lol. A friend of mine gave me the Koss headphones and I happily took them. A bit heavy but sound nice. As for build quality as you hear about beats these are the very first from 2008 been halfway around the world and back as well as heavy transit use. So 10 years and counting so far. My next ones will be the Oppo PM 3 also. Heard them at a friends on a high res player. WOW and very comfortable. Pricey as well but worth it.
Very comfortable--they're the only over-the-ear 'phones I can wear for an hour or so at a time and not feel discomfort. As a rule though, I just don't like headphones, or headphone listening (and that includes earbuds). So it says a lot that I can tolerate the PM3s for that much time.
No pics, but my collection is slowly growing.
Sennheiser HD558 ( headband broke)
Sennheiser HD 6XX
Philips Fidelio X2
HyperX Cloud II (Takstar Pro 80)
Sony MDR XB400
Pro 4AA Titaniums!! How do you like em?
I think the sound is really good for the price point and have a great retro look. Well guess these never really changed much since the 70s. Lol . I use headphones on my phone and iPad mainly. I plugged it in to my marantz cd and carver tube CD player for kicks and it sounded great. The thing I don’t like about them is they are not the most comfortable. Heavy as well. No way you take these on a long trip. The smaller beats I can wear those for hours I forget they are on sometimes.
Nah. Beats bashing is weak as hell. I’ve got the Studio 3 Wireless which have Apple’s W1 chip in them. They connect and play flawlessly with my iPhone/iPad/Mac computers. Previous headphones would work with some and not others and almost all of the other cans I had tried suffered from audio lag while watching videos. The Studio 3 have been 100% trouble free on all of the prior counts.

Recently acquired cans...by a wide margin my best sounding headphones, ZMF Vibro MkII
Vintage Koss K6's feeling my little 434
Just plain ole vintage for me, anything better is wasted on me, besides I'm too broke and cheap to spend much more.
Pioneer SE-505, Pioneer SE-L401, Pioneer SE-50, (that I bought at garage sales and swap meets, etc. cheap)and a too expensive set of Sennheiser RS175 RF Wireless HP Sys with extra set of HP's ta boot that I purchase for my daughter and son-in-law that they don't want.
Numark DH-30V from a thrift store yesterday.
