That's-a me, too! There's nothing better than receiving some audio gear on a birthday or Christmas. etysmile.gif It's the most musical time of the year.

 

 

You know you're an audiophile when you've read every single post in the "Headphone Sightings 2", "Non-audiophiles' Reactions to Hifi Headphones", "Getting Called Out for Not Wearing the Beats", AND "Post Pictures of your Current Hifi Station" threads.
It has been my new life ever since joining Head-fi....

 

And you know you're an audiophile if your virtual character in a game wears headphones.

...when you spend hours to make a DIY stand even though you have no headphones.

You know you're an audiophile when you know you are boring people but you can't help talking about your gear anywaybeyersmile.png

 

Eventually only other audiophiles tolerate your presence lol.

You know your and audiophile when you have different IEMs for different moods. You know your an audiophile when you make impulsive purchases', justifying them in the name of saving money lol (IE80s, TF10, Studio-V, aya).

When you woodworking in the shop trying to make the nicest amp and DAC rack that you can ever build out of a beautiful dark walnut wood.

...when Christmas isn't that exciting because you know A) no-one you know can afford the audio gifts you'd like the most, B) even if they could afford them, they wouldn't be able to find them because they don't sell them at the local mall, and C) the audio gifts you spent too much on for someone else won't be appreciated because of the crappy quality of their files.

 

(Well, actually, Radio Shack at the mall sells the Vmoda M80, which would make a stinking cool gift, but see back to "A")

Exactly. You've summed up what I think about my Christmas when it comes to audio.

Same here. My dad (14 here) does not approve of spending money on things that "aren't productive" so there goes audio gear and gaming. At least I can pay for it myself so it can't be taken :)

I had the same problem except it was me thinking i should buy something productive with my money, couldn't think of anything actually productive i could get myself so i got myself a 24" monitor, K240, and 940, in the excuse(to myself) that i could use them in the future if i ever wanted to start a home recording studio. And it is actually coming true. Just get yourself something that will last so when you are finally out, you have stuff to start with.

When the only thing you want for christmas is an amp.
When you cut your gaming hobby to afford a turntable.
When you sell off your Xbox and part of your computer to afford new gear.

My dad actually thinks my audio hobby (16 here) is kind of cool. He appreciates audio a lot more than he ever has and he likes it because music helps me concentrate on my homework more. smile.gif

I guess that much more feasible than trying to convince them to leave the TV on while doing home work. biggrin.gif
