It's a nonsense term, especially when things like the HD6x0/K70x/DT880, which were once unimpeachably hi-fi, have now been "demoted" a rung. Nobody with a straight face can tell you that any of the $1,000+ headphones are fully >$1,000 better than the best models in the so-called mid-fi range, and most people are very honest about that and admit that they're not. Not saying it's not worth it to eke out that last bit of performance or to buy something well made and stylish, but audio is always a slippery slope. The distance between "mid-fi" and hi-fi is far smaller than the distance between lo-fi and "mid-fi."

 

The way most people seem to use the term these days it's more to delineate price range than quality, but you'll get the occasional snobiophile (as Doc likes to put it smile.gif ) who will say that mid-fi is crap. Haven't actually seen one of those in a while, though, so maybe that attitude is waning.

 

EDIT: Clarity

... it might be that the differeance [imo is] with Amping. Mid-fi easier to amp than Hi-fi. Which brings me to amping 250 and 600 ohm dt 880s... 250s r easy enough 600s r a pain same can different impedance $100 price differance yet as much as I like my Dt 880 pro 250s, I'm going to drop about $650 dollars on an amp and DAC when I get my Dt 880 600's Next spring so FOR me that's the differeance bewtween mid and Hi fi... maybe not the can so much as what you need to drive and feed le can xD

 

But GOOD NEWS, you know your an Audiophile when as SOON as you find out your getting a job at $10 an hour, you figure out how long it will take you to save up for the $1800 in audio gear you got ur eye's on <3, while ALSO factoring in the payin of le bills... which means it's gonna take a while :D

When you're about to drop 2-3 k on your wedding rings, and it hurts your wallet so bad, but you're still trying to proportion a bit of cash for more headphones.

Too much bass (especially uncontrolled) messes up classical; too much treble makes a lot of mainstream stuff painful to listen to, and weird midrange coloration is just bad all around.

In relation to this

 

When your wedding rings are a pair of matching headphones.

 

Don't think that's a true story, but who knows?

I've always liked the idea of really simple wedding rings. Like, just a matching pair of gold rings without any diamonds or any of that crap on them. The whole point is that it's symbolic and that the true value of the marriage is the love each person has for each other, which is priceless. Why does it have to be symbolized with an expensive and largely useless piece of jewelry? Why should anything material compete with the value of the union itself?

 

In other news, I'm single. Can't imagine why...biggrin.gif
