Straw poll: what headphones have you, do you use?

Over ear: Superlux HD668B, Sennheiser Momentum 2 ( a bit meh imo)
On ear: none
In ear: Sennheiser cx5, Sony MDRex650ap, Tin Audio T2(so far my favorite)

On ear: Plantronics Focus UC
Over ear: Teufel Mute

Earbuds only, B&W (Bowers & Wilkins) and SoundMAGIC E11, sometimes over a Dragonfly Red DAC.
My dream earbuds are high end Klipsch and Schure.
I would be happy to go wireless, but how do you put a big battery, a high end DAC, and a high end receiver in an earbud?

  • Galaxy Buds (Bluetooth, in-ear) for daily commute and office.
  • Philips SHP9500 (wired, open-back, over-ear) for desktop PC. I find these very comfortable as they have large cups and next to no clamping force.
  • nuraphone (Bluetooth, closed-back, over-ear) when I’m not lazily reaching for the buds :slight_smile:

In ear: Mpow Swift
Over ear: AIAIAI TMA2 (S04-H05-E06 modules)

Wired in ear: xiaomi pill (the most confortable in-ear I’ve ever had).
Over ear:

  • Sony WH1000XM3 for music/work
  • Playstation pulse elite (older ps3 model)
  • Tritton Kama for xbox one

In ear-buds - green jaybird x2 or x3 I don’t remember because I lost them in the park :cry:

Hello, so I am one of those people who had started with one headphone then later fell into a rabbit hole and enjoyed owning more, Yes I am not ashamed but proud I managed to purchase nearly all of them used but I think I have a problem…

In ear: Campfire Polaris Gen1, Powerbeats Pro

On ear: Grado SR225e, AKG N60 NC

Over ear: Campfire Cascade, MrSpeaker Ether CX, Sennheiser HD 6XX, Senheiser PXC 550, Sony WH-1000m3, Bose 700, Bowers Wilkins PX

In Ear: Bose soundsport wired

These are the best headphones i’ve ever had. They are awesome quality and insane sound for a small price. I love that they are wired so i don’t have to charge it up and i love the better sound without bluetooth

Over ear: Audiotechnica mx50

Same as the Bose. I love the insane wired sound and good quality without a big price.

I would love if you think about a wired version of the headphone. Better sound with lower price

In ear: Tin Audio T2
I haven’t used these that much.

Over ear: Beyerdynamic DT880 Edition 250 Ohm
I’ve had these for 6 years now and have been very happy. For a long time I didn’t have a dedicaded amp. Afterwards I’ve had Harman/Kardon AVR255 & 265, Fiio A5, Schiit Magni 3, Sony STR-DN1060 & 1070 and Denon PMA-50.

Over ear: Audio-technica M50x.
Used for three years nowVery satisfying sound;
padding not very durable: needs replacement after one year use.

InEar: Shure SE425 with custom ear moulds.
Over Ear: Shure SRH750 DJ Series

Over Ear: Sennheiser HD 598s, Sennheiser HD449s (for isolation when recording)

In Ear: Soundmagic E80s.

In ear: Anker Slimbuds
On ear: None
Over ear: Sony WH-1000MX2


  • Sony MH-755 (read my review [shameless plug] )
  • Shure SE-215

Nothing. Gladly, since I don’t like the wearing stlye :slight_smile:


  • Beyerdynamics DT-990 250 Ohm
  • Denon AH-MM 400
  • Sony MDR 7506 (jack-modded)

I got a few :slight_smile: But nothing with bluetooth yet so I’ll be interested in how the Muse perform - sonically and in terms of comfort / other features :slight_smile:
