Hey, me too! :bigsmile_face:

 

(What's funny is that I didn't even technically break the rules; it was just to make life easier for certain individuals.)

I even represent it.........    :cool:

 

Quality and quantity are NOT mutually exclusive attributes....        but they are not often seen in each other's company............  :atsmile:

 

I know some people enjoy those threads, but my point was that I got to where I am without "cheating" in that way. If you look at many of the members with the highest post counts, they got there by making many of those posts with only a few words in them. (Not that most of those members didn't also make great posts in other threads. I've seen some of your more serious posts and have been impressed by your extensive vocabulary alone!)

Like defeating the beast gains them maximum hit points and the golden sword of Head-fi. :tongue:

I got in a debate once with a new member who practically insisted that the M50x was the best headphone ever. His justification was that it was highly rated in mainstream reviews and on Amazon, and that anyone who thought they could get significantly better sound was fooling themselves. I decided to try to enlighten this person, to no avail, and our little debate even caught attention on other sites. XD

The headphone threads are full of that.

 

You only have to look at the thread titles to see where things are going.

I only ever look at threads in this sub-forum and Music these days. I used to sub to the headphone threads for the headphones I own or have owned, but got sick of getting into arguments about cables, hi-res files, magical DAPs and all the rest of it... stay on any headphone thread long enough and someone will come along telling everyone how swapping out the cable or the pads has made a night and day difference to their listening experience.
