I try to not get too caught up in buying expensive headphones, but I admit that it is almost too tempting after reading reviews at places like this one and Head-fi.

I mainly focus on earbuds and (open/semi open) headphones. Right now I have:
AKG K420
Sennheiser PX100
Yuin PK3
Sennheiser MX360 (back up in case the PK3 die. However, the sound quality they produce is not that great...)

I am looking at Yuin PK2 and G2, and also AKG K518 for my wife so that she gets some bass heavy phones to satisfy her portable bass needs.

This year I live in Machida, southwest of Tokyo, in Japan and apparently Audio Technica`s main office is situated here. I am curious about the ATH ES7 and ESW9, but sadly living in the same town as the main office of ATH doesn't make them cheaper...

Sony MDR V6 - the best headphones I have listened to so far. They are flat and accurately predictable: just pumping out what pumps in.

Sony MDR EX38IP - very worthy and inexpensive replacement (with on-cable remote) for anything Apple made available.

Sony MDR E829V - The earbuds classics! I love the analog attenuator. The most precise way to control volume in the digital era. I use these to listen to audiobooks when it ambient sounds go down at night.

Koss SportaPro (retired) - These were amazing portable sound in my teenage days. The sound was less strong on the bass and hence my choice over the Koss PortaPro.

AKG K70 (retired) - used to be a good affordable solution for home audio when I got them in 1995 (when I was 10).

Something white that came with the iPod - used to be great for hooking up, but now as everyone has an iDevice, white is no longer sexy.

I guess for thread like this it doesn't matter.

I'm confused about how I supposedly had 4 headphones back in 2009 and I have four now. . . even though I got the HD 650's and K 601's since then. . . . oh wait, yeah the HD 650's were the Christmas present. I'm glad I decided to upgrade from my HD 485's.

Nah, good threads don't die. They just hibernate for a while until it comes time to rise again.

Back on topic, I have 4 headphones that get used. M50, sr60, meel m6, and the ksc75 on occasion. I have a couple of other IEMs lying around, but they don't really ever see the light of day. I will have a new set of IEMs coming in a little while though after a certain *cough*supersecretreviewer*cough* gets done with them.

I've got a pair of Klipsch Image S4's, Creative EP630s (but only one ear is functioning), SoundMagic PL30s, and a bunch of stock earphones that came with my media players (Creative Zen Vision:M, Creative Zen Classic 20GB, Cowon D2+, Samsung Wave, and Sansa Clip+).

I will soon sell my SoundMagic PL30s and probably get a pair of a-Jays ones or Sennheiser CX 271s so those may be added quite soon.

I lost count a long time ago, but not counting duplicates or stock buds I would say I have roughly 15 different pairs of IEMs.

Looks like I have about 42 sets of headphones/earphones at the moment (yikes!), 9 of which are in current rotation. My faves right now are the Monster Turbine Pro Copper, Phiaton MS 400, AIAIAI TMA-1, Sennheiser IE8, and Audio Technica ATH-M50.

EDIT: Make that 43 total, and 10 in rotation...My Monster Miles Davis Tributes just arrived.

All together I have 4

I have 2 pairs of IEMs.... I have a cheap $10 pair of Sony , Sony MDR-XB40EX which are actually really good.

Then I have 2 pairs of headphones which are Sony MDR-XB500 which seem to sound off for whatever reason... I like bass in my music but I think i might have received a damaged one because they sound a lil funny either that or my ears just can't get used to them.

Then I recently bought some AIAIAI TMA-1 which I have fallen in love with...
