That 25kHz+ your headphones are "supporting" is probably at a much much lower sound pressure level compared to the rest of the frequencies anyway

Haha. Or when your friends mistake your amplifier for a pocket radio, since it's twice as big as your DAP. biggrin.gif

When you spend over an hour explaining each component in your rig to each person that asks.

you know you are an audiophile when you stuff your pillows with acoustastuff to see if it has better sonic properties.

you cringe at the thought of people buying these crappy "soundlogic dynabass" headphones, which are absolutely terrible.

When family members question you're gift requests for more audio equipment for Birthday, Xmas, etc.

when you get vinyl versions of a song.......just in case

When you are about to buy new SSD for your PC, and run into a DAC you have been interested in and buy that with the money.

When you're sitting in a crowded area with work to do and refuse a friends headphones because they're Skullcandy and you rather just be upset with yourself for not bringing your own headphones/IEM's. 

 

I rather cringe at the world overhearing this group of girls talk about how they're sluts than borrow the headphones......should be an interesting day.

 

 

EDIT: I gave in......the girl pulled out $52 in single dollar bills from her bag and I couldn't handle hearing any more

She started searching her bag for some juice for her vapor cigarette and started pulling out singles and then proceeded to count them after and was extremely loud the entire time.

EDIT: I was losing too much hope for the future of my generation listening to her. I had to seek out help. I'm at a university 24-hour free space area with desks.

I catch your drift there. I questioned the same thing but am happy I don't know how. I can only be disappointed more by finding out.
