You know you're an audiophile when... - Page 255

When you refuse to leave the house without headphones, a media player, dac and an amp.

post #3812 of 6356
When picking today's media player and headphone combo is as much of a decision as what else to wear.

Going back to the EQ comments, I've usually avoided EQs. However, I have found some brands to work that well that you're missing out not to use them. This obviously excludes anything by Apple, where I feel their efforts are just basic crowd pleasers and not advanced enough to appeal to all users, the reason being that they're designed to be easy and non-confusing to use.

Ofc I don't expect everybody to agree, but whatever :3

I do use the tone controls on my amp tho, because it's easier than reaching behind the sub. it is, however, sacrilege to listen to studio masters on anything other than direct.

Opinions!

When paying €500 for a phone is to much, but 500 on a headphone is perfectly fine.
I'm having this dilemma, i really wanna get the Samsung Galaxy S3 to upgrade from my iphone 3g ( i'm starting to hate ios) but i'm also thinking of buying a he-500 and/ or hd600

Let them catch you doing that and you might well be wearing them to your funeral next. evil_smiley.gif

 

You know you're an audiophile when instead of being annoyed that somebody is deliberately listening to music in order to ignore you, you're more upset that they're doing it with stock iPod earbuds.

If i ever have a son, i'll make him grow up with high end audio, and i hope beats won't exist in 20 years

When you see people wearing beats, you automatically think they are ignorant inside.

Either that or Atkin's. 

You know you're an audiophile when you listen to a pair of headphones that give you noticeable neck pain for extended periods just because they sound wonderful.

I know I am an audiophile when I am thinking about the sound improvement rather than the price tag of the headphone and amps...

I considered that once, though I ended up getting an SRH440 instead, so I actually ended up worse off as far as portability goes. I'm actively studying up IEMs, since I've finally come to the conclusion that, at least in my experience, circumaural cans != portable. They do keep my ears warm in the winter, though. In fact...

 

 ...you know you're an audiophile when you don't use earmuffs or a woolen hat for the winter, just a set of full-sized sealed headphones.
