How many headphones do you guys have?

more_vert
I'd like to get a sense as to how many headphones audiophiles have and how you store them. I have 2 under desk hooks but have 5 headphones and I wanted to see what you guys do to organize. I also do design and am in the process of designing a nice multi headphone contraption that isn't just some horizontal rods. Cheers everyone. Hope to get a lot of feedback!

Finally going back down to just one! The Stax SR-009. Destroys every other headphone I've owned in every category including other flagships like the Audeze LCD-4 and LFF Code-6.

I don't consider myself an audiophile, but I do like discovering different headphones and sound signatures. I have these now: - Philips Fidelio X2 - Koss Pro 4S - Hifiman HE4XX - AKG K712 PRO - Takstar Pro82 - Sennheiser HD6XX

How many do I have, or how many do I still use?
I really need to clean out my closet...
4 Sennheisers 1 Stax 1 Audeze 2 HiFiman 2 Fostex 5 Grado 6 Beyerdynamic 6 IEMs of various manufacture. No customs, as I don't listen to IEMs that much.
Yes, that's a BUNCH. I tend to sample the offerings along a line from manufacturers whose sound sig I appreciate. And then, I suck at parting with them, once acquired. And I can be kind of selecting a specific set of cans for a specific music and amp pairing etc. etc. yadayadayada. To be fair, I only buy earphones from those brands that I like the sound sig. If I listen to something and don't like the ss, I absolutely never buy. And many MANY of my acquisitions are used minty. Kind of a recycling, and I have less run-in time to manage. Oh yeah. CHEAPER, too. :)
Storeage. Well, I tend to keep them in any hard cases or carry bags they come with on a set of shelves in my big room and above my computer/Woo-stack station. I don't hang them much because I think doing so puts stress on the structure of the headset. Any that aren't in their specific case gets laid on the shelf, and, if gimbals permit, with the ear speaker flat on the shelf. If I am actively listening to a set of cans, they typically are set aside on a table suface adjacent the rig that is playing them.
IEMs stay in cases provided by the manufacturer.

I have a few IEMs. A pair from Skullcandy which I keep because the warranty is great, a pair from MEE Audio that I got in one of the Massdrop blue box thingys, two pairs of NHT Superbuds; one that I bought when they were first annoumced, and the second was a drawing prize. I’ve pretty much stopped wearing IEMs because I went into the doctor’s office with a severe earache, which was caused by impacted earwax.
These days almost all of my headphone listening is done using my HD-6XX cans. I’m pretty happy with them.
