I remember when I heard a few classmates talking about headphones. All the brands they knew were Skullcandy, Beats, and Bose. The guys with the Beatswe're saying how good Bose sounded. I hopped into the conversation and spread my knowledge... No one listened...

I was simply starstruck hahaha. Asked local forums about it and turns out it was another local audiophile! A wild audiophile spotted! Haha

Reminds me of the time when an old vintage-head walked into Jaben HK where I was auditioning gears and I could just sense his enthusiasm and joy as he picked up a NOS pair of Beyer DT150s that happened to be on sale at the time!

Hehe... A little off topic, but pardon me. I managed to convert a friend of mine who used to use crappy generic earbuds to the path of better sound. He has since bough an IM50 and UM10 smily_headphones1.gif

You should probably post that on this thread, which has audiophile conversions in its list of within-topic topics. I'm pretty sure a few people there will congratulate you on your successful conversion (including myself -- great job there, by the way ;)).
