what was the flavor of the month when you joined head-fi?

Thread Starter 
i remember way back when i joined up that eggos were running rampant. everybody and their mother here was on team eggo, talking about eggo bass and tape mods and all that. i almost got caught up in the wave except the only place to get them was japan. so what about y'all?

I remember a lot of posts about the Allessandro version of the Grado SR125. Oh and Koss Portapros were mentioned fairly often as well. This was just over a year ago I think.

Ditto on the Eggo's. Maybe you're lucky you didn't get caught up in the craze. I succumbed, and unfortunately they're the least listened to of all my cans. I just prefer my Grados and KSC-35 over them.

The ATH-W2002s were the first really hyped cans I remember but by the time I got involved and was reading all the hype, I could no longer order them so I just sat around and let the mania pass by. I don't feel too bad about it, they are gorgeous cans, but they seem to be taking their shots these days.

Probably the HD-600 and Ety ER-4S.

a lot of noise about the higher A-T. In the lower range, it was an hd497 vs sr60 war.

Blimey...

I don't remember for certain, but I think that there was a whole lot of Sennheiser HD600 love back in June 2001...

If not, it was a Grado flavour... I don't think we'd entered into the AT, AKG or Beyer realm then...

When I first posted very few people mentioned Beyer at all, if any!

But yeah, I've seen bandwagons come and go since then.. it's amusing watching them come and go

I don't know, that was way too far back ! it was probably the 580 / 600 with a bit of Grado 80 thrown in.

Yes, a long time ago. But I remember soon after joining knowing that I must purchase a Grado RA-1 headphone amp. So there must have been a lot of talk about it at the time. Just yesterday there was an unsold RA-1 for only $215 here in the Buy/Sell forum for most of the day! Unthinkable back then! I would have dove on it.

Just to show you how fads come and go. I took about 8 months off from head-fi and I still don't know what a friggin "eggo" is!

Yeah....it was Eggoland here when I joined.
But, with proper use of search...I bought Senn600s

John

BTW...I tried the Eggos a few weeks ago and really liked them...they would be a nice can for me to travel with...but at the moment I'm getting that Sony 7506 love with my portables.

When I got here it was somewhat hot and heavy between the Sennheiser and Grado camps.

Replacement cables for the Senn HD580/600's. The Clou Red had been out for just a few months, and the Cardas was the new kid on on the block.

I think the A-T 2002's were hyped a bit around that time too.
