I don't mean to sound so violent, it's just that statement makes me want to shoot babies.

still doesn't clamp like mixrs i guess? cant really imagine anything more horrible then the mixrs, the pads are useless on them you only feel the plastic underneeth

Anyway, you know your an audiophile when you use 10+ minnutes to get the right fit for your etymotics using the tri-flanges hoping to get a bit better sound...

Yes, they hold objects some women forget they even own two days later.  At least with your headphones you'll never forget that you actually bought them.  :D See?  It's that easy lol

Willing to bet there are people on this forum that can't remember all of the headphones they've owned ^^

post #3697 of 6356

with those who have over 30 headphones having all those super long and number based names im not surprised that they won't remember all of them, especially the ones that they sold off

I've never owned one, but I think when one is technically inclined it's easier to remember model numbers... like the HP TWF11R, or RPHJ900.

Guesses anyone? I'd say you're an audiophile, or at the least obsessed with 'phones if you can guess the headphone from the model number. (Googling now, the second one seems to be missing a letter, but it is unique enough to guess.)

Plus alot of people like that sound in the same sense that alchoholics can enjoy utterly cheap booze[they just wanna get hammered]... they are bass heads that only care about getting that High... they lack the class of us TRUE bass heads!

You know your an audiophile wear open headphones for the explict reason of listening to your favorite paino accompiant ALONG with the voice of a lovely women [sitting 3 feet from u] ... OPEN CANS FTW. You don't even care what words are being said just the way they sound <3 <3. Although i wonder... would she count that as listening LAWL 

 

Although that may be a mixture of Philas <3

The SE-700s squeeze your head, hard. The pads are about 1/8" thick. Under the pads is hard, unforgiving plastic. 

 

The pads are supposed to be thicker but as the headphones aged the foam inside them collapsed.

I would already have pads for mine made, but the headphone sounds its best with the drivers as close to your ears as possible, so I decided against it.

 

You know you're an audiophile when you'll wear a headphone that's uncomfortable as sin just because it sounds better than your others...

Like that post! Got the etymotic hf2, and the last week they were KILLING my sore ears, and know they are just uncomfortable. I don't consider myself audiophile at the moment at least, because they are my first pair of iem's. And they are amazing dt880smile.png

 

I'll better stop while i can xD

when you are calculating out how much money you need exactly to get you through the rest of the semester of school so you can buy those new headphones.

When you are calculating how much money your new set of headphones + amp + dac will cost, and then deciding if you need to drop out of school. Haha
