I think it is incredible how you guys are so young, yet seem to have been on head-fi for so long, judging by your post count, I am 16, and I know of no one at my school who has nice headphones, except for a person who i had encouraged to by m-50's after he sold his beats pros.

i'm shocked that some many people's listening stations are in front of computers. I find a computer screen distracts me from the whole art of listening.

Agreed, and a couch or a recliner will usually be more comfortable than a desk chair.

The liner notes for Gil Scott-Herons last album included these words on listening to music -

 

"for the first time under optimum conditions. Not in your car or on a portable player through a headset...Get rid of all distractions (even her or him)...Turn off everything that rings or beeps or rattles or whistles...Listen all the way through. Think about what you’ve got."

Hmmm, I'd be interested to hear the thoughts of those forum users who have their systems setup in front of computers.

 

I’ve noticed over the last few years, especially since buying an iphone that I don’t listen to music properly anymore. On my iphone or computer I might have +$300 headphones on but I’m really not listening, I’m to busy swiping and left-clicking.

 

I have more of a traditional listening station setup. My gear faces a wall in the living room and fortunately we don’t have a TV or computer in that room. If there was one I’m thinking that I might miss that opportunity of getting lost-in-the-music.

I think it really boils down to what kind of listener you are. There are those who go flipping through songs in between each play and 

then some who sit down and listen to albums all the way through.

idk about you, but a lot of us are limited. I live in a college apartment. my desk is where I live, so it's the only place any listening can get done. (I also don't have room for excess furniture)

true - i find myself that technology is making me more of the former - jumping between tracks. worse still is when i find myself not even listening to the full track thanks to mp3 players and their time scroll bar.

Very true and very insensitive of me. sorry about that.

No need to be sorry! In fact, I 100% plan on getting a nice lounge chair setup back at home this winter break! because I am too ADD to sit in front of a computer screen and focus on the music beerchug.gif

a few reasons, I find new music with headphones on the computer, plus I don't like plain listening all the time(I already zone out too much lol), I find my music has the ability to set my mood through out the day so I keep my set up with me as much as possible

 

And due to being a student, a laptop has to be the most portable way to enjoy my music everywhere I go
