And I don't know how you 13 - 15 yearolds have so much gear... Spoiled child or were given as gifts? hehe.

Thought so... How old are you? 13? A 13 yearold with an 02/ODAC combo, HD650 and a Paradox for his rig... Lucky kid man.

I had to buy all of my stuff. There is no way my parents would consider gifting me (never mind simply giving) such expensive stuff for headphones, which they think is nuts.

I too have to buy my own stuff. Except vinyl, I get lots of vinyl during gift giving times like birthdays and Christmas which is welcome.

 Looks like a great deal, but I'm looking for a fun headphone. I also don't really like Beyer.

If you can find one for the right price, the XB500 is QUITE a fun portable headphone. Easily driven, and built relatively low.

What about the Monoprice 8323?

You should just demo whatever headphones at your local electronics store or save up a bit and purchase many low end cans and see which one best fits your needs

A fight just happened in my class, don't worry, audio gear is okay.
post #1154 of 1191

I'm 15 from Panama/Costa Rica and in 10th grade

 

I have DT880s (600ohm), V Moda m80s and Shure SE215s

 

amp/dac just an Audioengine D1 and it will stay like that.

 

daps just a clip zip and ipod classic with broken hdd, just have to buy annew hdd

 

 

I don't really consider myself an audiophile, I just like to enjoy the music but don't really like to dissect each aspect of a piece of equipment, if it sounds good to me I'll use it.

really at my age and with the stuff I do full size HPs are not really for me yet, so I'm, trading the Beyers for some Vsonic GR07+cash, and will stick with IEMs until I have a job and can afford high end equipment, now with the money I get as gifts etc if I really wanted eventually I could get expensive equipment but just using all my money in audio equipment is not viable considering  I have other (relatively) expensive hobbies

I'm consider myself a really lucky kid, out of the stuff I've had/have the only I've bought are the SRH440, D1 was my christmas gift last year, and SE215s where kindly gifted to me by my dad. Surprisingly, the M80s and DT880s started as me trying to buy them off of fellow audio enthusiasts, and out of the blue they decided it was a good idea to simply gift them to me. Really owe those guys :)
