You know you're an audiophile when... - Page 317  

post #4741 of 6356

When you let the general manager of the only Grado distributor in the country listen to the Audez'e LCD-3 and laugh at his reaction to how awesome they sound.

That had to be quite a departure from the usual Grado sound signature for him. Bright and colored versus warmish neutral and uncolored.

Hence is why your "trick" your self to thinking there is :D, and in reality while technically there isn't a differance... the sheer joy of playing a 96/24 lossless song just brings me so much joy! An that extra "joy" makes the music more enjoyable... because I'm an AUDIOPHILE [get the joke xD] 

 

Your know your an audiophile when you waste time explaining for failed Audiophile jokes to other Audiophiles <3

Your 7/10 is actually a statistical fail. Next time try to do 15 iterations - the more you do, the better the results bear out. Ideally, to prove you weren't guessing, you need to get under 5% (pretty hard to do when you get 15 iterations - for most of us impossible at aac256 which is pretty much transparent).
Also - try it with the "hide results" box checked. Then its a true blind.

Yeah I would have done more than 10, but the video was getting kind of long, and as boring as it is I don't think very many people would care. I would have also checked the "hide your results" box, but the video was meant to demonstrate what the ABX test is.

also, blind tests are illegal to speak of here >.>

I don't buy into the whole "HD" music stuff either. It certainly sounds good, but how much better is it to your ears than 16/44.1?

^ so maybe you're a die-hard audiophile if you do believe in that stuff. XD

You know you're an audiophile when you buy your HD 650s in value packs.

no not really, that just means you have a lot of money to blow.  One pair will do fine...

When it's not even 1 month since I bought my first can and I'm now contemplating a new can 10x the price while on a non-existent budget. confused_face.gif

When your local audio store sells you aftermarket cables they don't offer anyone else.

When you wear t-shirts with a Telefunken 12AX7 at the back.
