Just leave your ears untrained then buy and enjoy what sounds good.
Audiophile sometimes carries that negative connotation, which is why I avoided using that term. You do have a point, in that there are a lot more factors than the physical phenomenon sound itself that sometimes can come into play. Both the ear and the brain are involved in a person’s listening experience. Just as a simplistic example if you program yourself to equate the quality of a headphone with its price you might start to delude yourself into hearing differences that sometimes your head produces, not the headphones. In the end I guess one should be honest to oneself and follow that advice of enjoying what sounds good in spite of what others say.

There are indeed differences between phones and amps but as to it being better is subjective.
Once you move up the dollar scale a bit the differences become so small that the variations will only become evident with certain types of music.
High end is not the Audio Nirvana that it is made out to be.

How exactly did that happen?
