Headphone discussion thread

Show us what you've got ... on your head.
Post pics of your audio setup for gaming or listening to music.
Or just chat about which cans you prefer and why?

Keep it real and dont believe everything that is being said in the audio world.

INB4 DICE!

These are my first set of proper headphones, it's taken me quite a while to accumulate my full audio setup but I will be teaming these with my Asus Xonar Essence STX and a mic of some kind that isn't a modmic. They are too pretty to stick things on.

Ive got this soundcard and headset combo



This is perfect for the late night gaming sessions and even sound quite awesome for music.

During the day the soundcard goes of to my Harman Kardon HK3480 stereo receiver to power my custom build subwoofer and 2 KRK R6 passive monitor speakers.

I'll post photos when my new headphone stand arrives. Gotta love free stuff


Currently using some DT770 Pros with a Silverstone DAC combo. The Amplifier also goes off to another amp (a dying AIWA RX-50) that powers a pair of old Mission Model 70s. I'm also going to get my Vinyl player and plug in to that at some point too. Anyone using some decent earphones? If so what you got?

Using these simce they are cheap so it wont hurt if I gorget them somewhere but they still sound quite good, they do have some muddy mids and the soundstage isnt great but you cant expect such from a 20€ earphone

I have some Shure SE310's, obselete now but I would definitely buy some newer Shure's next time around, I think they will last me a long time though. Quite a neutral clean sound, no raging bass but it's definitely there. Not audiophile enough to make any more valuable comments.
