 Still pretty niche, although I imagine not so much as in some other parts of the country. A lot of people in Orange County have disposable income for hobbies, so I've spotted some legit audio gear in the wild. Also, a lot of the music industry is based in LA.
 Thanks, just asking because I may be bringing a couple of non-audiophiles. Well, one of them is dragging me to a wedding the day before, so she'd at least better come. Can we come in and out of the event, or is it just one entry?

 Heh, unfortunately I can't use that argument because I apply the same Head-fi mentality to shoes and clothes. On the plus side, yours sounds like she's ripe for Head-fi conversion, though...
You let your girlfriend control your finances?
Re: The HD650 veil, it certainly doesn't have as much emphasis on the treble as many other headphones, but it would be incorrect to say they're lacking in detail. Many people look to treble for detail, but a treble tilt only gives you the illusion of detail. There's plenty of detail in the mids on the HD650's (and the treble as well); it just doesn't have in-your-face treble that makes the high end details more noticeable.
