LOL! I'm sure you love them too.... So I went to Walmart today for what ended up being a great people watching session and it's too bad I couldn't video it. Anyway, I noticed 3 boys in the front basket part of a shopping cart who all looked about 3-4 yo. The mom had her back to the cart and was staring motionless at a 32" t.v. I really wanted to tell her that one of the boys was sucking on that part of the cart that folds out and turns into a baby seat, but I couldn't think of the words to say because I was speechless. But I wanted to yell "What are you doing?" Then I read that you say you let your 2 yo play with your hd600eek.gif

Yeah, a good friend came in with some Boss in ears after he washed in his pant pockets the Meeletronics A151 I recommended him. Why wouldn't you ask before doing something like that?! (I mean buying Boss)

My mom uses some earbuds that came out of a pack of batteries for listening on her laptop. I've listened to them, and words can't really describe them. I let her use my S4s for a bit, and her response was "You can get some new headphones, but only so I can have these."

Will she pay for the new pair? XD

I wish! I have to pay for random stuff I want, which is fine with me, but it does limit my options.

I no longer bother to force my audio gear on friends. If they're interested, they'll usually ask about the 4-5 odd pairs of headphones I have on my desk. Some care, some don't. The ones who don't still like the speakers though, as long as I don't mention prices.

I had a fellow worker over after telling him about my setup.. Bifrost-Lyr-Lcd2. He thought I was crazy until he heard it. Then it was "Wow, I'm saving up for these".

 

I then showed him  my Fuji  x Pro1 camera, and I'm crazy again.

That's been my policy from day one of this hobby. Not worth the time or effort to convert tbh. If they ask, I'm happy to help though.

I accost my friends and make them listen to good headphones. And pity the poor fool who won't listen.

no listen ... no scotch for you eek.gif

I think most people are impressed when you let them listen to decent headphones. Most average people will be impressed by ANY bass impact, coupled with the fact most have simply never listened to a good pair of headphones. 

My GF had a similar reaction to my A900X headphones that someone else had mentioned where she said "It feels like I'm surrounded by the music!" lol L3000.gif

When people come to my house, i find I want to play them music on my stereo speakers instead of letting them go into their own world with my headphones. But I'm so picky about music that if I heard One Direction on your best setup, there's no amount of Scotch that would help unless I was out cold. However much I doubt you do that, I usually start with music on my stereo, then when they're grooving, then I hand them the cans all set up. If they were impressed before they will surely like headphones. They are the best bang for your buck in quality sound, though the are more for personal use, it takes a lot of money and time to set up a nice home stereo. If that doesn't work I lock them in my basement and say: no listen, no food for you. lolevil_smiley.gif

So, in an interesting twist, the guy who I mentioned yesterday who recently bought a Monster DNA tried to lecture me on the history of Monster Cable's headphones (completely unknowing of the Turbine line), as if I didn't know anything about that already. Then, to get him to go away, I mentioned the other product lines that Monster offers (Diamond Tears, VEKTR, etc) besides his DNA. At that point, I just wanted to get back to my desktop setup.

 

About half an hour later he tried again to discuss headphones with me as equals, and I played along despite the fact that he's not exactly an expert on the subject. I kind of felt bad for him, so I tried as hard as I could to converse. When he asked to listen to my headphones (at that point the T5p), I saw opportunity. As soon as he heard the climax of the introduction to Money For Nothing,  he was completely hooked. I didn't get my desk back until work ended.
