How many pairs of headphones do you have?
I'm getting out of hand!

I've got 2 x Sennheiser CX300II ear buds...one busted, one working, busted one being taken back to store with new pairs receipt to claim under the 2 year warantee, lost original pairs receipt so being sneeky hehe, so will have a back up and keep rotating them with warantee replacements and in theory never have to buy another pair of ear buds again...muhahahahaha

Klipsh S4A reference buds, just grabbed as Catch of the Day had them on sale for $50...they're good, not sure I'd rate them any better than then CX300's though, but the little clip and the mic/phone connectivity is pretty damn handy

Sennheiser HD25 faggy blue Adidas ones...again, only nabbed as some place online had them on sale for $200 and had been keen on a new pair of DJing cans for yonks

Technics 1210...the first pair of DJing cans I bought, still working fine after 8+ years of use bar a few minor casing cranks/chips etc

Audio Technica ANC27 noise cancelling cans...found them at an auction house in Camberwell, $125+ new, scored for $25 + commission...pretty damn effective cancelling, and alright sound quality, too

And rounding it out with some AfterShokz Bone Conduction Headphones...army tech which sit in front of your ears and transmit sound vibrations through your cheek bone direct to your inner ear...great for cycling as you can have beats but still hear your surroundings!

Anyone got more than 7 pairs of various headphones?

I have quite a few shit pairs and a couple of goodies.


HD25-II for DJing
AiAiAi Tracks (For every day wearing)
Pioneer HDJ1000 (Spares I got when I left my Sennheisers at my parents in Adelaide)
iD America Titanium Earbuds (samples from work..)
Sennheiser HD202s (a rushed trip to JB HiFi when I forgot headphones before a gig at a pub)
Sennheiser HD201s (I use these for watching TV)


A few more then I thought, including a bit of wasted money from being forgetful.

2 pairs of HD 25s as I lost a pair for about a month before they turned up.
Would like some AIAI's though, and some nice big comfy Technics ones.

HD25 II's - my workhorse for the last couple of years
Technics 1200 - Previous workhorse for many years before that

Marley Ear buds - surprisingly clear and honest sound quality, for work etc

Beyerdynamic DT990 open - For producing at home
Beyerdynamic DT770 Closed - for producing on planes or where I dont want to piss people off.

That and a set of ipod earplugs to test what stuff sounds like on them... as most people would have them etc.

^ they're fucking work horses, eh? Retired my pair after 8 years purely as I scored a bargain on some Senny's and just felt like a change...fark all wrong with them aside from the odd surface mark/scratch

^ Fuck oath. Amazed they are still in great shape after years of abuse. Much difference between them and the HD 25s?

Lighty to wear, but a bit tighter on the ears...sound is a lot punchier and crisper, but never had issue with the 1200's in regard to sound, but yeah, the Sennys are pretty slick for sound and they isolate a bit better, too...don't miss that coily cord, that's for sure!

AIAIAI buds for other general listening, but I don't use them as much as I thought I would

Senn HD25s for mixing

Some funky Sony noise cancelling buds for the walkman ... best for blocking out traffic & transport noise.

Beyerdynamic DT770s (250Ohm) for late night production sessions


I also have a couple of cheaper pairs of sennies kicking around.

Sennheiser HD280 Pros for mixing, might use them for late night production if the bug bites.
Sennheiser CX300-IIs for casual listening.
Old pair of Audio Technica headphones with active noise cancelling, mainly for flying.

Was thinking of going with a pair of HD25s for mixing at mates places, but not sure if they will sit right on my ears without being uncomfortable (had them pinned back many years ago and they are a bit funny with pressure sometimes as a result).

Slight update ... i imagined i was only going to use the DT770s for production, but i'm using them for almost everything apart from portable/walkman usage ... also i got the 80Ohm, not the 250s ... great compromise between the 32's and 250s .

Fair enough mate, cheers!

Yeh the coily cord is a hassle at times lol

I have 1 pair - Sennheiser HD25-1, bought them in 1998. The old school ones when they were made in Ireland, and they've been (ab)used every weekend since

I've replaced the original ear-pads with the velour sort once (about 2001) and replaced the cable just last year as one side was out. Had no idea how long they were like that, I rarely use them on both ears

I fucking love them, and I don't think I've ever owned anything that has performed faultlessly week after week for 15 years like these babies continue to do - Reckon they'll still be going in another 15 years

Pair of 15+ year old Technics 1210, mainly mixing at home, awesome bass response, always seem to go back to these like an old pair of vans.

Senny HD25-11, scored them for one fidy smackers at JbHifi, store incorrectly priced them, even copt a laugh at/abuse when I asked if it was correct, strange how the price went backup the next day. great highs and mids but lacks the bass, ain't the greatest in noisy places and after 2 hours I start scratching my head like i've got lice.

Sure SE846 earbuds, only preference when having to mix on cues, complete sound isolation, make me shat my dacks each time someone taps me on the shoulder.

I'll replace the 1210s with the pio HDJ2000s when/if the time comes, any opinions/experiences with these?

Personally preferred the HDJ-1500. Felt there was more separation between all bands, bass wasn't as muddy and that it had better isolation.

Still have the 1500s but the coating is flaking and haven't replaced the busted cable. Moved on to TMA-1 Studio and a butchered TMA-1 DJ that's now a monostick.

Requisite headphone porn.
As far as how many? Too many:

  • AIAIAI TMA-1 Studio
  • Monostick using AIAIAI TMA-1 DJ
  • Sony MDR-SA5000
  • AKG K702
  • Pioneer HDJ-1500
  • Sony XDA-4
  • Sony MDR-1R
  • Sony PFR-V1
  • Sony MDR-EX700




















Don't NEED anymore, but digging what I've read about the NOC NS900 LIVE.

More than I'd care to admit (would be cheaper to buy two - or three - and screw it up yourself a few times just to get one or two right), but worth the price to me, seeing as I don't currently have a multimeter or soldering iron nor a space to work.

If you can find it done with AIAIAI TMA-1, Sony MDR-V700DJ or Pioneer HDJ-1500 then go for it. Dig that I get a mono signal seeing as I never monitor with both cups, and easy enough to settle on my shoulder or under my chin without having to grasp the handle.
