    AKG K92s plugged into the motherboard for videos and games, I don't care about surround sound, plus a pair of Shure SRH1540s plugged into my DAC/headphone amp (Audiolab M-DAC) for music.

    Re: QOTW: Which headphones do you use?

    None ATM use the poor speakers in my screen, i would like a nice gaming headset, but as no one have made a game i would like to play competitive i am in no hurry.

    For normal listening to music i still have my old set of Beyerdynamics i have owned since the late 80ties, but they have not been in use since 1990.
    Really lately i only listen to music in the car, and that's getting pretty rare too, pretty much only in the summer time i do that, and i am no longer spending small fortunes on ICE for the car.
    My current car have a cheap 2DIN head unit and the factory door speakers, no room for the 12" sub i do still have in storage.

    Feeling old anyone ? :-),,,, or young for that matter.

    Re: QOTW: Which headphones do you use?

    Several pairs.

    Serious musical use = Stax electrostatics.

    General use = Sennheiser .... err, forgot the number. 580? 600?

    Travelling = Shure earbuds. Again, don't remember model number. Nit cheap, but not silly expensive either. £150-ish IIRC.

    Oh, and a very old pair of noise-cancellers for flying. Sennheiser IIRC, but I think a good 20 years old, maybe 25. Could do with replacing these, if I get a round tuit.
    A lesson learned from PeterB about dignity in adversity, so Peter, In Memorium, "Onwards and Upwards".

    Re: QOTW: Which headphones do you use?

    I used to do most of my listening on speakers, but with acquisition of little people in my house, I do it less now. Headphones to me are a convenience to others.

    My home PC I use Audio-Technica ATH-PDG1 open-backed headset. Whilst it's billed as a gaming headset, it does a fantastic job on music, and the open-backed nature gives a lovely sound and makes them very comfortable to wear.

    At work I use my trusty old Sennnheiser HD212Pro closed-backed. A little bass heavy, but still crisp and well defined. The closed-back style is good for a shared office, but does get uncomfortable after a full day.

    Then some Sennheiser CX 275s for the rare occasion I'm listening to music on the move.

    Turtle Beach X12's as i do the majority of my music listening at my PC. They're getting on a bit now but the sound quality is still very good. If im out & about i use some basic Skullcandy earbuds.

    Re: QOTW: Which headphones do you use?

    Mixture:

    Bose QC35 noise cancellers on the train commute.
    Bose Soundsport ear buds or Aftershokz Titanium whilst exercising depending if I need to hear ambient noise or if I'm in the gym.
    Aftershokz XTrainerz for swimming - by far the best waterproof/swimming headphones I've ever used.

    Sennheiser HD580 main, plus several pairs of lesser Senns (202), Senn HD238, a couple of sets of comms headsets for my ham radio, plus a few sets of IEMs, including my latest the Senn i800 clones off GearBest for 14 quid which are fantastic

    Re: QOTW: Which headphones do you use?

    For general listening with the freedom to move around I use my Sony WH-1000XM2 bluetooth phones. For proper listening I use my lovely old Sennheiser HD600's fed via a Schiit Modi3 & Magni3 (also known as a Schiit Stack) which inturn plugs into the USB on my Hackintosh. Its a great combo.
