yeah i've read that alot of people who are married still goes on head-fi. there's really no turning back. the most you can do is spend money and acquire everything and anything you've ever had an inch of interest on. then once you've bought/tried everything, you'll feel so depressed that you won't come back...

i had a hint of that feeling after getting the UE-10. they were to me an extreme purchase and i told myself enough is enough... $1 grand can actually help towards a down payment for a car... but guess what, i'm back and looking for upgrades to amps and cable...

I was a heavily into video games. But it was a mix of starting work and my new interested in music that changed my obsessions. I didn't have time to play games like I did while I was still in college, but I can read the boards and listen to my portable setup while at work. It just kind of worked out, but I never thought I'g get this into the hobby...

Now there's a serious cash sink. Having been involved in photography for pretty much my entire life, I've spent enough over the years to buy a small BMW, between digital and film cameras. (I still own about $15K in large format gear, plus my digital and 35mm film cameras). And I too spend large amounts of time on DPReview.

So far, I've avoided spending a lot of cash on headphone stuff, but I'm getting the urge to build another amp or two. I was into audio for several years before I was married, but I have to limit myself to one expen$ive hobby at a time

Ah ha, I got into this hobby through gaming. The search for a good pair of gaming cans

.. And I can't go back because I've just spent around $700 and am too broke to upgrade my computer which can't even run FEAR

Haha thats how I got into this hobby too. The DT770/80's are wicked gaming cans. You cant run fear? Man I remember getting fear and playing it at 800x600 for hte entire game, settigns on medium. It sucked. Then I upgraded and I can max it out now. But once Crysis comes out (or STALKER for that matter) I have to get a new video card. Hurray for loans (I need a car too, oh and a house, probably wont have money for a new card).

Well actually I can, but lets just say pacman looks more attractive if I lower the settings far enough for a good average FPS

These days it's a violation of human rights if you don't get to surf in prison. And without doubt I'd be spending my daily "internet quota" surfing at Head-Fi.

Funny thing is that this is only serious cure mentioned so far.
post #27 of 101
but death is not really a cure... it's more of an end to the addiction...

Insult other headfi members and have everyone get mad at you. Then insult the mods and get banned. Problem solved.
post #29 of 101
but then they would just pull up the backup headfi accounts acquired over time and log on via proxies. there's no stopping the addiction save death.

video games will do it, but then you're on to a worse addiction so i'd stick to music in fact, just go buy more cd's rather than more equipment
