That usually means that the headphones in question are not the most accurate or neutral, but that people like them anyways.

I have 11 pair of headphones that work, and a couple others around that are dead that I just haven't gotten rid of.

I'm currently down to only 2 pairs of headphones. As I have given my other 5 sets away to my brothers. I'm thinking about picking up another set for myself though.

My headphone count is embarrassingly large (37+?). I really need to carve out some time to start selling off the unused ones.

For me fun is something I enjoy wearing and using. The sound comes second tbh, and I have bought headphones that had more function then soundquality but is still fairly important. When both are what I want I usually buy that set :P

Right now I have 9 headphones, 1 is my desktop PC headset, then I have 2 full sized TV watching headphones, 2 sets of wired portable on the go headphones, 2 sets of bluetooth portable headphones (Although tbh one of them might not be considered "Portable") 2 IEMs and a set of ear buds.

Those are the ones I care about anyway.
