I use the earbuds that came with my phone. And when I mow I use a cheap 3$ pair of ear protection. I can just barely enjoy the music.

    I have AirPods, Shure se215 and some random junk
    AirPods are nice for fast easy connection
    Shure are great for planes and other situations where you want to block out noise

    Focal Elex primarily. Best headphones ever set upon this head of mine.
    Beyerdynamic DT770 when I need closed back or traveling. Had these for 12 years, just replaced the ear pads on them.

    Really love them. Definitely more treble than my Senny600s, which makes for a nice crisp, warm experience. Everything is clear and balanced the way I like it. They are very comfortable too. Great purchase.

    AirPod Pros. Curious about AirPod Max. DMB's studio albums now say Lossless in iTunes, and newer ones says Apple iTunes Digital Master or something like that. I'm curious what the difference is.

    You canít get lossless on AirPods anyway because the Bluetooth connection compresses it, so it wonít be true lossless. Now AirPods Pro have Bluetooth 5, so they should theoretically be capable of higher bitrates up to 500kbps, but thatís it.

    I have the 250 ohm version of those and love them. I use them for mixing. I also have the Sennheiser HD 558 for more casual stuff and love them as well.

    Wow. Got them a day early, and they are fantastic. My phone can support them pretty well, but when I plug them into my macbook pro or my turntable receiver is when they really shine. Very impressed.

    Cool. In fact they are my favorite too, at the moment.
    Now I am curious: how would you compare the Beyerdynamic to the AirPod Max, in terms of sound?

    When being played from a phone, I would say the AirPod Pro Max is better. For one, just for the audio level. Then again I was listening to music through my iPad and not my Samsung S10, so maybe apples and oranges there.

    However, these beyerdynamic's plugged into the computer...I could hear the orchestra turn their pages and someone inhale before a horn part...that blew me away.

    If anyone else is looking at the 32 ohm version, there is a pair on ebay brand new for like $105 right now.

    Thatís where you might find useful a DAC attached to the smartphone (Dragonfly Red).

    I will have to look into that, not sure I want to drop another $200 on audio equipment at the moment but don't you tempt me!

    I listened to my favorite Beethoven track:
