I have these cheap 15€ no-brand headphones on all the time when using my laptop. Partly because laptop speakers suck, partly because I don't live alone so I don't need to bother my people with whatever, partly because it helps not hearing other people's shit as well.

I just use a $40.00 pair of Koss SB-40; primarily for the mic in gaming; but also for the comfort of wearing them. I wear glasses and untill I got these I never found a pair of headphones I could wear for more than an hour untill I came across these. If you want to look at these clunkers the Koss webpage is below because I'm too lazy to link it propperly. :wink:

Well i actually don't consider the afore mentioned sets as 'abnormal' per se since i've seen people who modify their own headsets. I myself just use some(which are better than all those on the list, no offense crud :) ) Denon HP700's with slightly modified drivers for my music, games, and DJ practice.:

250$ USD

I also had a 600 dollar pair whose name and brand escapes me at the minute but they were stolen from me recently.

Simple. I turn up the distortion on my guitar amp.

But in all honesty, yes I spend more on headphones per year than the average man does on utility bills. I just break them all the time.
I enjoy everything the devs hate. This includes and is not limited to: Pokemon, K-ON! and Lego.

I used to have a lot more stuff but when I realised it was doing nothing but gathering dust and losing values I flogged most of it last year.


Also a little more news now that I've had the Edition 8's on for a bit.

For a closed-back headphone tehy hold their own against the Grados. I am more familiar with the Grados, and the extra ventilation feels a little nicer. They are also a little lighter.

At the workshop I thought that the Edition8's bass was better than the GS1000, which it is, but I don't think it's by much.

I honestly think anyone would be happy with either.
Are you looking for a 48-channel, 16-buss digital console by any chance? I'm trying to get rid of mine to finish paying my PTHD system off.

....

No.

If I ever wanted to mix something serious, I'd do it at work.

Then again no harm in asking....

Do you work at a studio?

Cause word up for working in a studio.

Or, slaving in a mix room, in my case.

Not as such.

Before you all came along I would have mentioned it but now that people are actually looking at these forums I no longer find it appropriate to mention my workplace.

That being said I am a technical advisor on sound gear.

These are what my employers gave me to wear at work and I've been wearing since forever. Having a hearing deficiency (cookie bite), I would have stayed the hell out of this thread...but my hearing aids got fitted this morning and I wanted to try out the 'music' setting on them.

MXR Distortion+ / Ibanez DS-& / Peavey Vypyr / Behringer ultra Flanger 200 / Ibanez Wailing Demon / Boss TURBO Distortion DS-2 is my main gigging rig.

also, my overheads are HD201 Game's, which I often plug right into my guitar. Much fun.
