Why did you join headfi?

post #1 of 144
Thread Starter 

I'm wondering. So many members are quitting, and I could see why. When I first joined, I wanted to find out what would be the best, cost effective setup for me. I found it thanks to the kind members here. Nowadays, it takes hours, if not days, for people to respond to posts. I don't know why, perhaps it is an economic issue, perhaps it is a time issue (e.g. need to do more shifts, etc.).

 

Sure, I have the goal of shortening my internet usage time, but the head-fi forum is one of the most helpful, and nicest I have seen. Other forums I used to be part of are very elitist, and they fight over the most petty ideas. They are all prima donnas. But here on head-fi, sure we all have our favorites, but we never burst into a huge argument about the smallest things. It used to be a very helpful forum, and to many extents, it is. But I am just very sad that so many members are quitting. On head-fi, I could talk about whatever I want, whether it is a school issue, saving money, or even somebody's birthday, and I know that someone can always offer helpful advice. I simply can't do that on other forums without being embarrassed or a member yelling at me.That is why I love this forum so much, and I hate to see it deteriorate. We should have a campaign to re-engage members and to persuade everyone that head-fi is a welcome place, no matter how much is in your wallet.

Headfi.org proliferated my numerous google searches... for something to step up to from my PortaPro.

My grandfather (a former engineer for Koss) asked off-hand if my new headphones (Pro4AAT) would be amped, and limited research led me here. Came for the advice, stayed for the community.

I googled "apple lossless" and I saw a thread or two on here about it. I lurked for a few hours to see what else was on here, and the rest is history.

Registered to pre-order an item and figured since I took that last step I might as well post instead of merely lurking wink.gif

Threads came up on Google for literally every audio-related thing I searched for. I read the reviews and got my current gear. I decided to stick around after making the foolish, foolish decision that I wasn't done. All those guys with <5 posts? They're the smart ones.

Must have subconsciously thought that I had too much disposable income.....dumb.

Back then I bought my first DAP and I really got fed up with those cheap buds. So decided to do some online research and ended up here.

 

These days I frequent the music threads more than the ones on the cans as I am quite broke and cannot afford any new cans.
