Tell me you are an audiophile (headphile) without saying you are an audiophile

1)-I spend more time thinking about music than I do about my fiancé. :joy:

2)- I own tons of gear but can’t save up enough money to buy a car. :joy:

3)- the amount of gear I have is the exact amount of my credit debt. :man_facepalming:

I have opinions about the impact of headphone wood cup material on sound decay.

I enjoy the glow of tubes in the dark and a tasty beverage while listening to whole albums with the lights off.

I think of any headphone under $1,000 as “entry level”.

If you want to know my favorite song I’m going to need you to specify genre and era.

I own over a thousand records and I still buy more every month.

I like music, I want to hear deeper into it. And I’m always curious about what ‘better’ sounds like.
Even if I don’t spend nearly as much money on gear as I wish my family would let me.

Guttenberg defined this as ‘you care about music and how it sounds’ as the only criteria. Like that.

I once had some earpods that came with an iPod nano…

I literally placed it on the cement ground and stomped on them until they were crushed! :joy:

Haha this is me :joy:

Sometimes I look at my fiancé’s ring and think damn I would have a Susvara in my main rig already.

  1. Listening to a specific track and analyzing it to death until you hate it.
  2. Checking the classifieds for gear daily… Okay more than once a day lol
  3. Getting caught way to often with your eyes shut in full meditation mode.

For real though, this is totally happening to me. I noticed it this week because I’m past due for a haircut. Even when I haven’t listened to headphones all day, my hair is just starting to grow with a flat strip across the top. lol

You have to start using volume shampoo. Think of it as an EQ for hair. :+1:

I’d like to slightly modify that: if you want to know my favourite song, please specify the source (vinyl, tape, cd, …)

…the pressing and mastering date and whether its heavyweight vinyl and whether the records were stored vertically or flat and and and…

That dip in the mids is a problem. This head doesn’t need much more treble extension or else you’d look like Morrissey.

After hearing the British pressing, what I thought was an out-of-tune snare over on the right side, was actually the drummer beating a cardboard box; I’m keeping these wires!
