Didn't see a thread about this already so I figure I'll start one myself since it still fits into the topic of music.
I'm interested to see how the people of Psypokes listen to their music. Feel free to describe anything you listen to music with or on (headphones, mp3 players, home audio systems, etc)
I'm a bit of a Sennheiser fan so you'll see a lot from them in my listing:
At home I listen to my music directly from the computer using my Sennheiser HD 595
headphones. Only cost me around $200 on Amazon at the time and I love them. Worth every penny.
When I'm on the go I have my iPod Classic (120 GB version)
. I know there are better mp3 players for the money, but I like the iPod's unicode support (useful for my asian music) and its easier to scrobble tracks listened to over to my last.fm
Depending on my mood (whenever the iPod isn't plugged in the car while I'm driving) I use one of two headphones for my portable listening.
The first being my old Sennheiser PX 100
headphones. They were my first venture into higher quality headphones and Sennheiser in general and I'm glad I took the plunge.
The other I tend to use more because they're lighter and easier to carry around: my Sennheiser MX 660 earbuds
. Surprisingly good bass and overall worlds better than the stock iPod earbuds (those things are just lifeless). Also a volume slider in the middle which can be useful at times.
That's all for me. I'd like to get an amp for my HD 595 headphones someday when I'm not as lazy (and broke). I had my eye on the Little Dot
line of amps made in China as I've heard good things about them.
Anyway let's hear what you all have.
