She's a keeper. What kind, out of curiosity?

It's cheaper than a mistress.

 

My current setup is part of a negotiated deal that moved my butt ugly 70's stereo out of the living room.

The bills are paid, we have no debt, we don't discuss price.

I am at the seven year mark and I think a mistress is starting to sound better than headphones at this point actually, and it really may end up being cheaper.redface.gif

She doesn't question me about any of our finances, and I don't question what she does in the kitchen. We're happy. :)

Ah, the most rumored question of all times ;-)

My partner found it a bit odd in the beginning but he's more than okay with it now.

We both are quite electronic-equip-minded so we get along just great!

We don't care about the amount of money we spend on our hobbies as long as we have money to buy proper food,

pay our morgage and whatever and live a good life together it's all fine. The perfect agreement as luckily there is more to

life than headphones and gear (not much but there is).

Lying about the money we spend however, is something we both never have to do like it seems some of you do.

I'm grateful for that although that decision is entirely up to you and has nothing to do with the partner (you chose yourself).

 

Happy listening ;-)

she thinks all my headphones sound the same as the ear bud that comes with her ipod

she thinks all headphones are equal

she thinks i am crazy to spend so much money on these things

she wonders why i need to have so many pairs of headphones

she thinks i am an addict

 

BUT, she doesn't really care, so i can still buy whatever i want.

She's positive about me being excited about headphones, but she can give me the look if I've bought another pair of cans. (luckily she learned I also sell some cans quite easily if I don't use them)

 

At the end of the day, she accepts and knows I will be reasonable and not spend my last bucks on headphones.

 

She doesn't really understands it though, if she would, she would be spending her online time at head-fi.

As long as I'm not posting/browsing while she's talking it's all good

My wife was ecstatic when I let her open up the new headphones I got her for Christmas this year.  I told her that I couldn't go cheap on them because it wouldn't be fair -she deserves better than to hear mediocre quality sound from her media player.  She took a nap later on and woke up telling me that the dream she had was about headphones.  Maybe she's starting to understand where I'm coming from with this all of this headphone business...

It's gotten even better now.  My wife's parents both want decent pairs of earbuds after hearing the set I got for my wife.  Looks like I'll be going back to the headphone store!
