I wouldn't put a number on what is 'too much', but any headphone that I really don't get much use out of or ever really ever want to listen to gets let go. If I had to pare down my collection a minimum right now, it would be to these four: STAX L300 Ltds (because they are unlike normal headphones and are top tier level, plus LOVE how they sound), modded Fostex TH-X00PH (bass presence unlike anything else with rich mids and energetic highs), Sennheiser HD58X (what I wanted the HD6XX to be - punchier and more energetic sounding), and Koss KPH30i (awesome portable warm, smooth sounding cans that work for everything, including gaming).
Everything else I could live without: Monolith M1060 (×2), Philips SHP9500(×2), B&O H7, Denon AH-D2000, Fostex TH-X00 MH and second PH modded into a PS, 1 More-Triple Driver Over-Ear, Philips A5 PRO (most horrible comfort, okay sound), AIAIAI TMA-2 (horrible sound quality, bad comfort). Unknowns right now are two I have eventually coming in - Audeze Mobius and Modhouse Argon Mk3s (sent in my T40RP Mk3s, which I do like.) And I'm really interested in the FLC 8S IEMs. While IEMs aren't really my preference at all for music listening, they are unbeatable when you need portability AND isolation on the go - the FLC 8S are also highly tunable for sound signature as well.

The FLC 8S are on my short list as well due to their adjustability and cost. But my friend is letting my borrow his Campfire Vega and honestly, it hits everything that I want out of an IEM. It's unique and nothing I've heard really sounds like it. Just having a hard time trying to convince myself it's worth $1100 despite how enjoyable I find it.
I also feel the same way about the 58X vs the 6XX. A pleasant, cheaper surprise. I also like the gloss black and grey grills more than the blue on the 6XX.

I'd wanted a K10u ever since they launched but they violated my $1000 HP limit (self-imposed). While $900 is not $1100 I can certainly relate to... do I really want to pay that much for IEM's? In my experience I am damn glad I jumped on the massdrop revival of the K10. They are just about everything I want from an IEM (e.g. they sound good with all of my music) and I have no regrets. I say go for the Vega, if it causes you to stop analyzing the gear and just listen to music it's a keeper in my book.

Can't get my devices to recognise the mic all of a sudden. Used to work fine on my laptop, now neither desktop nor laptop will take input from it - all I hear from the mic when I try to record on Audacity is a buzz. Tried unplugging and replugging the cable where it meets the headset. Any ideas?

Douk Audio?
Has anyone had any experience with Douk Audio preamp/headphone amps? I have a variety of headphones that I use, from multi-driver IEM to closed and open back dynamic, including a few sets from Drop. But I recently picked up a pair of planar magnetic from Andover Audio and while they play reasonably well even with just my phone's audio output, I'd like to get a decent entry level amp for some extra oomph. I found a preamp/headphone amp from Douk Audio that seems to fit generally what I'm looking for, their P1; but I wasn't familiar with the brand and wanted to get some feedback if anyone had any experience with this brand or model.

Headphone amp with 80 ohm beyerdynamic headphones
I ordered my first pair of audiophile headphones, the beyerdynamic 990 80 ohm version because the nice man at audio46 said it wouldn’t need a headphone amp. My Q is although it wouldn’t need it, would adding a headphone amp to my iPhone make the 80 ohm sound better? Or is it strictly for the 250 ohms that they have to use a headphone amp . I mostly listen to hip hop and r&b music >
