But, she has a boyfriend and is a bit too geeky for me so that's that!

come on bro, you're a HEAD-FI'ER......... that's the pot calling the kettle black.

Srsly. 

 

I had a guy come by my desk at work and saw the D100 under my laptop, and the Bottlehead Crack and HD600 sitting next to it all - and started asking some questions. When I said - "I'm a bit of a nerd about all this" he started saying, "No no - I love headphones and audiophile stuff too..." and all I could think was, dude, that just means you're a nerd too...

 

I told him about head-fi, we'll see if he joins up.

I don't think enjoying quality sound qualifies you as a geek.  not in my corner of the world at least.  What do you use high end audio equipment for? to listen to music.  I think judging people as a geek based on what they listen to not how they listen to it is much more common.

linglingjr, yes... but by the time you're into it enough to be on head-fi though - you're a geek.

Theres a difference between geeks and nerds.. Nerds are into technology etc, but still have social skills.. Geeks, not so much.. Im a nerd smily_headphones1.gif
So my question is, was the girl a geek or a nerd??

Maybe in UK.... it's opposite around here.... anyone with any technical enthusiasm playfully considers themselves and people with common interest a "geek" not a "nerd"...

I myself found it humorous that the post was directed to a forum full of "audio geeks" saying she was too geeky for him.... its like announcing at halftime of a football game you didn't like a girl because she was too sporty.

Lol guys, can't tell between geek and nerd in her case. She's smart, but also into anime and cosplay and whatnot. I'm just turned off by her passion for manga (sorry no offence to people who like anime, it's just not my thing).

 

I'd be much more attracted to her if, say, she played an instrument, or plays sports (like hockey!).

 

I also think we're geeks and not necessarily nerds here on head-fi. We're headphone geeks, but most of us have many other hobbies I'm sure.

Just noticed you have 650 posts while discussing a girl with the hd650

Anyway, I've always considered nerds to be the ones that study 24/7 and have no social skills while geeks are the ones that are into tech.

I saw a middle-aged man wearing Sennheiser CX-300 Precisions while on public transportation. He sat in front of me, but I was too shy to talk to him LOL. Maybe I'm a geek too. Haha.

Oh well =(
I find it hard to approach someone to talk about their headphones when you don't know if they even care about their sound quality.
Obviously if they have anything over $200, besides designer headphones, you can assume they care a bit.
