Well, I wouldn't exactly call all these things collections. Maybe they're just things I have a lot of? And I know my parents would say -- why do you need that? Why do you have so many? You get the idea.
|Headphone collection, continued. Sennheiser HD-280s. Great closed headphones for a reasonable price. Provides good isolation -- great for those long, calm (depending on your taste), listening sessions. Though my current favorite is actually the HD25 (not pictured) that have a higher price-point (about twice as expensive.) I also recently got a pair of custom IEMs made (Ultimate Ears UE4).|
|Safety products -- hearing protection. Peltor H10A Earmuff. Highest protection available for an earmuff (30dB noise reduction rating.) Why do I need this? I'm not around loud sounds very much. Just part of the odd collection. But it is nice not to hear everything sometimes.|
|Safety products -- hearing protection, continued. E-A-Rsoft foam earplugs. Easy way to carry around hearing protection with good noise reduction (33dB)...I bought a box of 200 pairs...|
|Safety products -- respiratory protection. MSA Advantage 3000 full face respirator. Others would call it a gas mask, but it really isn't. This is probably something I don't really need but I think looks cool. Thank goodness I bought it on eBay for less than 25% of the retail ($200 or so.) Some day I'll have to put a picture of myself with it on up on the web to see how stupid I look. So I sometimes work in dusty or chemical laden environments, and the thing does work, even if it is overkill for those situations.|
|Digital music & mobile telephony. Apple iPhone 3G 16GB. Okay, this probably isn't a collection per se, just something I enjoy. With millions of other people worldwide.|
