Exactly. But once you keep listening to high end stuff, you get used to it.

Well, then you go to a friend's house for a couple of days, listen to their stuff, and cry about it until you go back home and get satisfied once more darthsmile.gif

 

I remember I was at my friend's house on friday and we both have spotify but he has the premium version with 320kbps streaming. So I go to his computer, plug my M50s in his little headphone jack from his speakers that has its own volume control/amp thing. It sounded really veiled and congested. Unplugged immediately, went back to my PC and asked him to log in there wink_face.gif

Ah, nice. I'm greedy when it comes to my audio. You see, unless I have the audio quality of top tiered IEM's, I become dissatisfied with anything less, as it doesn't sound as good.

I've never heard a decent IEM before....

 

 

Also, you know you're an audiophile when you switch headphones a lot because your main ones aren't good for movies.

Ah, now there's something I do all the time with my headphones. But it's kind of the opposite. I switch to my main headphones (the HD650's) when watching movies, but I am getting where you are coming from.

Yeah I listen to the M50s for my music normally but I switch up when I watch movies and such.

I'm guessing you switch to the AD700's? How are those for movies? I love my HD650's. The low end surge really makes you get into action and explosive movies quite a bit.

They are pretty great. Location and spacial qualities make for a fine movie experience. The airyness helps to bring a feel of life to the movies almost. I find war movies to be great on them for $100 but the low end is pretty pitiful from time to time. I cannot imagine that they'd be better than the HD650 though. It really depends on how well the positioning, width, and depth of the 650's soundstage is. It's pretty awesome when bullets scream past you from one cup to the other though.

When your dad opens the AD700's you got him for Christmas, and you have to convince him to focus on the sound rather than the color (purple) of the grilles atsmile.gif
