I'm glad that V-moda is putting their headphones in stores like that. All I can say is that you know you're an audiophile when you create a good headphone brand, and sell audiophile-approved cans to the common consumer.

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.

I haven't gotten my dad to sit down and listen before. He always just says no thanks. He likes music though but not enough to justify the price fo audiophilia which is understandable. I got my aunt to listen to my 650s out of my laptop headphone jack and thought they sounded beautiful and didn't gawk at the price (if she heard me) but said she wouldn't buy them as she just doesn't listen to music.

 

And music just wraps around my mind too much so I can't do music and homework.

He always used the iBuds until I showed him at the meet how good headphones could be. He came back from the HD800 and the LCD-2 completely stunned. biggrin.gif

You "badly" influenced your dad. He's reached the point of no return.

-When you look at a video of some guy rapping in a foreign language, and the first thing that comes to mind is "Holy crap, he's wearing a vintage Stax Lambda!"

 

-When you've spent more on your headphone rig than your CPU and graphics card. Combined. (For a computer enthusiast like myself, I didn't see THAT coming. This place totally isn't good for my sanity or my wallet.)

Oh, he doesn't care much. He has too much on his plate to make time for high end audio. However, he is excited to got to the Seattle meet next month.

When you have your head outside the bathroom window at one in the morning listening to the mariachi band play for the crowd of drunk Mexicans when you are not drunk nor a fan of the music but the sound of live drums and trumpets make you feel giddy inside.

You know you're an audiophile when it's Christmas Eve, and you're on Head-fi

You know you're an audiophile when crappy songs come on the radio and you try to estimate the number of virtual instruments used in the song.

Win.

 

But seriously, in my case it's because I'm swearing at certain cd's from my favourite bands which are ripped in good quality or even lossless and they still sound awful due to cheap/bad producing. I have to take out my old bad headphones to be able to enjoy those even just a little bit. The irony of my beyers blink.gif

You know you're an audiophile when you hear people talk about John Mayer, and you immediately think "Dr. Jan Meier plays the guitar?" 
And then, a few moments later, you realize how incredibly wrong you are.
