Post Your Headphones and a Vinyl

Have you ever found your setup seems to be the magical pairing for some of your favorite musicians and albums? Do you also have a vinyl of that album? This thread is for you, then!
Bonus
Post a photo of a ticket stub with the vinyl!

Anyone who's followed me throughout my time at Massdrop knows that I love the Audio-Technica AD2000's (and Audio-Technica in general). They're notably excellent with presenting female vocals and Kate Bush is one of the most amazing vocalists to have lived; it's a perfect pairing! I was also lucky enough to attend one of her live shows in London—her first in 35 years!
I must say, in all honestly, that I don't spend much time listening to my vinyl with headphones. Maybe that's something to get into in the future.

Awesome! I was thinking about doing a photo with my JP1. Nice headphones. They get a lot of hate, but they are really good for $110.

Thanks! I listen to them every day and they impress me each time. I can see how they may not be some folks’ cup of tea - they’re very different to other cans I own. Definitely an acquired taste and I’m happy I acquired it!

I can see you said it in jest, over and over again, but omg stop saying a vinyl or vinyls. The young’ns look to you for how to behave! Even if you’re joking, some percentage of them will run around saying it. It grates on my ears like a bumpkin relative saying, “It was a nice jester of you to invite me.” You still love em, cause family, but dang son...

Cause vinyl is the plural of vinyl. And it modifies the word "record", not replacing it
Spinning this for just the 2nd time. I was scanning a record store in Edmonton when I found this, in very good condition. The closing number "Matilda" is kind of a highlight. I got the SL-1700MK2 with EPC-205CMK3 cartridge and original stylus for 50 CAD (!) at a garage sale. A steal I should say. To complete my setup I have the Pro-Ject Tube Box S phono amp with NOS Telefunken 12AX7's, the LD MKIII headphone amp with Mullard M8100 driver and Sovtek 6H30PI-EB power tubes, and the classic Sennheiser HD 600 headphones. My setup is modest but sounds very good and enjoyable. Cheers!

some well loved akg's!

Sure are! They have done well over 10 years. Great detail and soundstage for the right music, but they are not "rockers".

One of my favorites for 30+ years now, and a great sounding album to boot.

Nice shot. You got it all in. What kind of record weight is that?
rnight
Thanks! I got the Record Weight near me at Turntable Lab in NY’s East Village. Don’t know the brand. It is also a a level. It has enough heft to be a weight, but it’s mostly for looks.
