Sony MDR-XB500 most of the time - I love the deep, punchy bass and they are super comfortable
AKG K 701 when I am mastering music for headphones
Grado SR125i when I feel the need to hear maximum detail

Hard to beat Sennheiser. Have been using HD450's for years. Sound great and they last. You just can't buy them anymore.

AKG K 601, a shame they're canceled. Using EQ to polish away inadequacies.

Impossible to break unless you're an elephant. I once stepped on them in the dark, all it did was break one of those plastic things that I guess are supposed to increase clamp or something. No noticeable impact.

Elasticity > rigidity.

Gotta agree the K701s are the phones to reach for as a flat mixing/mastering reference.

My current headphones are Sennheiser CX400 II's but I also have a pair of Sennheiser HD485 's as a back up in case something happens to the CX 400 II's.[better to be safe than sorry as they say]

Audio Technica ATH-AD700s. I only use them for counterstrike
I'm still using the same headphones, and still playing the same old game. I hardly ever play anymore though

I've had a few other pairs of headphones in and out of my hands, but they were all cheaper and much less comfortable than the AD700s.

I don't know the model number, but I am using some cheap JVC iems at work. I also have some moshi vortex pro iems for flights or whatever.

I primarily use Denon AH-D5000 headphones. I have a pair of Sennheiser HD 650, but I prefer the Denon's bass response. I can wear these all day without fatigue.
