I grew up around the stage and national treasure grade professional audio equipment, so I started on the higher end of the spectrum without actually realizing it. As I grew older, I kept getting this "left wanting more" feeling with any and all portable music player/headphones I owned. The most crucial moment was when I first replaced my Etymotic hf5 earbuds with UE-900s with custom tips. The moment I started playing music thru the UE-900s connected to my iPhone 5 was when the ah-ha feeling hit me. It gave me a closer than ever peek at what I used to hear growing up near the stage. I've since then added a pair of UE Reference Remastered, Sennheiser HD650, and Audeze LCD2 to my repertoire. The Audeze paired with the O2 have so far brought me close as ever to the childhood audio experience I remember. I'll be attending CanJam in NYC in February in search of head gear that gets me even closer.
