I’ve stopped buying a while ago and sold down to a “core” collection. I used to review headphones for a website and I’ve heard/owned cans at all levels, but what I have now is more than enough to be “done” buying.

I now have:

  • HE-500 (1 stock, 2 modded with headband upgrades)
  • HD800 SDR
  • THX00 Ebony with TH900 drivers and pads
  • Focal Elear
  • Audeze LCX-XC
  • TH900
  • MSR-7 for portable wired

These cover all my music nicely and I don’t see a need to chase other high-end cans anymore.

I use a THX-789 for amplification and SMSL SU-8 DAC, which cover SE and balanced with enough juice for all the headphones.

I’ve never been really into IEMs, but outside the house I usually use my AirPods Pro or AirPods Max - not perfectly matched to my music but good and convenient with ANC.
