RE: Anyone remember their first set of cans?

First I bought the AKG K-702 phones, which improved with break-in. I still use them to listen to TV shows and music when everyone is sleeping.

Next were Sennheiser HD-600 cans, which I found not to do well until I bought a cheap HeadRoom portable amp, later replaced with a Burson HA-160. I still use these, but they have been replaced for most of my listening (almost all classical) by Focal Clears, which provide more detail in the midrange and somewhat deeper bass.

Before getting the Clears, I briefly had HD-650s, which sounded dark no matter which of my amps I used with then. I sold them within the month for the discounted price I'd paid.
