...when your girlfriend tells you to engage with your beloved Grados instead of her, you told her that Grados' sound is engaging, upfront, transparent to be sexy enough for bedtime listening.

Newbie here! Peace! Love Head-fi~

When your child draws pictures of you, it always shows you with headphones on.

... when you go through the weekly lifestyle magazines and redact any information that might give away the price of your gear to family members.

If you're shopping for a $2K amp I would hope you make your own money. :p

As for others in life, it has a lot to do with 'perceived value' and social norms - I mean, the absolute amount for a Porsche is a lot more than premium headphone, but people 'get it' when you buy a expensive car. But the multiplier from cheapos to HD800 is in the 100's, and people don't have the context to understand your reasons. But I believe you can get most people to understand if you can engage with them.

It's funny as he didn't blink when he saw my projector when he visited (which cost more then $2k). I think some people just have a hard time accepting that spending money on audio gear is worthwhile to some and does have actual improvements (and significant ones at that). Ohh well, he'll have to deal with it, I didn't say anything when he bought a sports car which he never usses (it's his money and it's not my business what he does with it). I just found it amusing. :)

Speaking of which, you know you're an audiophile when your shopping around for a $2000 amp. :p

Your hobby, your value system. My brother values muscle cars, my sister in law horses.

If nobody's posted this before, when you own more replacement cables than pairs of socks.

When all your albums have stickers on, colour-coded to indicate exact optimum volume levels for each of your sets of headphones.

 

When you buy a pair of iBuds for use during Lent, but then decide that daily self-flagellation with a whip is preferable.

When you refuse to even look at, let alone speak to, anyone whose collection of different pressings of 'Kind of Blue' is only in single digits.
