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!
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.

The Shotgun approach - throw everything into the picture! Signed Tenacious D debut album along with two different concert tours, assortment of Headphones/IEM's, and a PonoPlayer. Headphones, left to right (Massdrops' - x Focal Elex, x Focal Elex, x HIFIMAN HE4XX and Sennheiser HD-600). IEM's left to right ( Massdrop Plus Universal IEMs, Shure SE215SPE, Shure SE535, and Massdrop x NuForce EDC3 In-Ear Monitors)
Really nice photo. Are the Elex that great for the price compared to the 6XX? does the price justify the quality?
Old school cool
One of my fav album, Dada by Alice Cooper with Meze 99 Neo headphone.
Ps. My desk is a big mess now, so I took this pic on my bed.
I definitely need to listen to my vinyl more with heapdphones on. But I must say that the detail of the BD DT990s combined with all the subtleties of Sohn - Tremors is a wonderful pairing!
Them Crooked Vultures
Bob Dylan "Desire" album through HE 4xx. Wide and deep.
"Wolf" by Tyler, The Creator on pink vinyl, and B&O Beoplay H6 over ear I love the cover art by Mark Ryden
Side 2 of that album is pure bliss. Enjoy!
Totally not played up for the photo
"Passion" - Peter Gabriel. Half-Speed mastered, 45RPM Numbered Limited Edition. Can't wait for my Cavalli amp to arrive so I can enjoy this at a (hopefully) higher level.
I came here just to say Kate Bush! I love her. Discovered her 30 years ago...been in love with her voice ever since :) . Would have loved to see her perform. She is truly an artist, not just a singer.
It was a toss up for James Taylor or Styx. Jim won !
Yeah, Ágætis byrjun sounded pretty great through the HD6xx's last night.
The ultimate headphone + vinyl combination.
Fight me.
I feel sick.
My Sennheiser HD579s with Outkast ATLiens. This is a Special Edition of the album I got from Guitar Center that has the album art plus other art printed on the two vinyls the album consists of. Pretty cool. I need a better vinyl player though. I have a Numark USB powered player with speakers that is serviceable but I got a good home theatre system that I should get a standalone player to connect to it! I connect the Numark player to it when I feel like having my wife yell at me about playing music loud... LOL!!
Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro plus and Daft Punk - Alive 2007
Chilling to some tunes while doing my IT shizzle
HD 6XX and some Trees
Lots more albums to choose from, but the M1060 isn't as photogenic. Somebody want to donate some pretty cans so I can pull some others out? I'll take good care of them!
Great album. The track Red Forest is amazing. Bones of a Dying World might even top this one...
I’ve got that one and the double reissue of the first two as well (still waiting for that legitimate third pressing of those that’s been “coming soon” for a couple years now...). All fantastic albums. Bones probably is the best album honestly, but I’ve spent the most time with Red Forest, so I tend to give the nod to that instead.
Hit me with that Weeb shit
Don't know if this is the ultimate, but it's my latest favorite. Amanda Shires/Dave Cobb/Jason Isbell make for a potent team in the studio. Her new album To The Sunset is a sonic feast.
Why have I only just found this thread. Nice photo ;-)
I just looked up that album and immediately added it to my want list! Great vocals, great instrumentation, and fantastic recording!
My favorite album of all time (Queen, A Night At The Opera) with my currently favorite headphones (Focal Clear).
aren't you listening to the AKOM album tho? Isn't that the disc playing?
That’s just a Queen slip mat! :)
He-400i and some explosions in the sky.
Glad im getting the most of my music with these great headphones =)
And… "a vinyl?” Oh boy, millennial much?! It’s called a RECORD.

The record companies still trick you into buying lossy quality by making vinyl pressings produced from CD masters (e.g. the Beatles vinyl stereo re-issues from just a few years ago) and high-res files produced from up-sampled CD masters... :(
Or LP.
Many years later... finally saw them live last night at Bethel Woods {Woodstock}
My two loves, Pink Floyd and my Grado SR325e‘s.
I am a transient, like a hobo hopping train cars - I tend to switch artists and genres with the wind. I seek out FR that is mostly flat with a slight bump in the low end. Bloodborne is my #1 favorite game, but I still put DS on my top 5 - soundtrack being a big contribution to the decision (what little is served in game).
Aeon flow closed with homemade moon audio black dragon conductor and pentaconn 4.4mm on Fiio Q5.
I want these headphones! I have the Alpha dogs currently but want to upgrade to these to go with my LYR 2 amp! I'm jealous!!!!!!!
Damn it man! You had me worried there for a moment when I read "...to have lived"--that was a little too past-tense-sounding for my taste (had to click over to Wikipedia to make sure I hadn't missed something)! Anyway, now that I know all's well, I commend your taste in female vocalists--although she's so much more that that ;- )
