Welcome to Headphone Heights, the place for all your ear bud discussion

I did

I replaced my horns/SET system with headphones only. I prefer it for simplicity and the ability to listen to whatever I like, whenever I like. No more speakers here.

I recommend the Sennheiser HD600, if open-back is OK. I have heard a number of headphones that were "supposed to be better" but haven't really found anything to beat these. (The Audeze LCD-2 is comparable.) I listen to these straight off the outputs of a Metrum Octave DAC, with a Slagle 600 ohm autoformer. Pretty exotic. If I was buying new, I think I would go with a DAP like the Fiio X-7. I would also get some IEMs. The classic Etymotic ER-4P is a nice place to start.
