    I am curious as to whether or not this love of high quality extends to other areas of one's life, including personal audio.
    I'm loving my Shure SCL2s.

    Audio Technia ADH-AD700. I'm on my second pair. They're grotesquely enormous, but you can barely notice them, even after hours of playing.

    Grado 60 -- haven't used them much since I live by myself and usually listen to speakers.

    Bose QC3 - Love the warm tones and the Noise Cancelling is second to none

    a-JAYS Four - iPhone headphones with full mic and control. Great upgrade to the crappy white headphones.

    Senheiser MX90s - Workout headphones. Good bass and nice and secure.

    I also use a pair of Bose Aviation X for flying - good ANR and fits in my Cessna without any adaptors.

    For home use: Sennheiser HD600

    I just replaced the outer foam covers ($50.00) after 10 years of wear and they feel like new again.

    For work/gym/travel: Shure SE530

    These are not as comfortable as the HD600 but still sound great and are more practical for on the go listening.

    Shure SRH-840s. Love 'em. Wish they had a bit more bass, but they're so neutral that they make up for any lack of lower frequencies. Plus, I don't have an amp/DAC yet, either. I hear the bass tightens up and increases in punch with a good amp.

    Just ordered some Senheiser 555. Apparently, if you remove a tiny piece of foam from the inside they sound just like the 595.
