My computer is my entertainment center. All my movies and music are in it. I haven't really listened to music through my computer a whole lot because my right ear had issues. Now that my ear works again I can enjoy the sounds it makes. I have Samson active near field monitors and a Yamaha active servo subwoofer... sounds pretty good if I do say so myself. Sometimes I like to listen to music really loud but don't want to disturb my brother so I got some headphones a while back. A pair of Steelseries headphones. They ****. I found a used pair of Sennheiser Momentum V1 headphones in mint condition but without the ear cushions for $38. I ordered the correct ear cushions and they are perfect now. They are not loud enough though so I have ordered a headphone amp which should be here soon.

What headphones do you all use?

Do you live in the ******* basement or something bro? Why do you need a headset for any of this shit?
1. To hear more detail
2. To listen to music without being disturbed by other people
3. To not disturb other people
4. Late night listening so my neighbors don't get disturbed with the bass
5. I am not some young prick without manners walking around in a world unaware that there are other people in it

No, I do not live in a basement.

Yeah it's not audio. It's headphones. It says "Kick back, relax and post off topic issues here"
Topic of this Internet forum being Car Audio... Being that headphones are not related to Car Audio and it is illegal in most states to have headphones on while operating a motor vehicle, I thought I would post my "off topic" topic here. In the dome... "Veteran" ;)

Out and about in the gym, etc. I keep them cheap and disposable. I like the Panasonic ErgoFit best... but also have some JBLs and the urBeats3 (not recommended).

At home/office I rock either open-back or closed-back, depending who else is around:
Open Back - Philips Fidelio X1
Closed Back - V-Moda M-100

I've got the V-Moda BoomPro mic for calls too.... great add-on mic.

I have several headphone setups for when Im jamming out working.

I run a Yulong Daart Canary with optical to my laptop for most every day listening. I have shit tons of headphones. Used to do reviews for companies so they would donate them to me. I think my favorites are a pair of Aurisonics ASG2's that are limited edition with some custom cables. I also have some Edifier stuff, AKG, K612 Pro's, Grado i80's, Gorilla Ear AT5's, Shure SRH750DJ's, Etymotic, Heir Audio, some Audiotechnica ATH BT6's among other things.

My office setup is a Schiit Modi, Vali, and Wyrd or my Yulong DA8 with what ever headphones are in my bag.

I have read that the Schiit DAC's are pretty nice. I haven't had a chance to demo one but reviews look good. My motherboard has a pretty good DAC on it. Low power output but I am fixing that here in a few days when my headphone amp shows up.

I love my Beyer T1 but they are falling apart. I use em with a asus essence sound card with burson op amps. People's jaws drop to the floor when they hear it but I think I could do better with a proper 600 ohms external amp. The only thing that keeps me from buying a dac is knowing that my source will now be a on board sound card. Just can't wrap my head around that.

you can use an audioquest dragonfly to bypass the sound card.

Headphone amp arrived today as well as my 1/4" adapters... BRAINFART. I have no cable to go from the computer to the amp. So that is ordered now. I heard good things about the amp.
