When you debate your parents to try and get THE AKG Q350 because its on sale and you have no earbuds. You then plot on how to get amazon cards so as to buy them incognito, then wind up getting the K340 because you have enough amazon money.

Ooh. That sucks. My parents, though reluctantly, will let me order whatever I want if I give them cash.

They make fun of me sometimes for it. I actually told them once, I am considering two hobbies. One of them is audiophilia. The other is cocaine. They cost about the same. Which one should I take up?

Yeah. You can guess which ones my parents chose though. L3000.gif

Yeah, my parents won't let me get "foolish" stuff even if I have the money for it. My moms reasoning is that I don't have seven sets of ears. LOL

Told my wife it's better than me taking up hydroponics and growing "medicinals" in the garage.

Got Bose QC15s 7th grade, Beats Pros in 8th, AKG K702s (with an E11) in 9th grade, and now (in 10th), I'm on LCD-2s and an ALO Pan Am/Passport combo. I wonder where I'll be two years from now...in audiophile terms...

You know you're an audiophile when you just bribed the mailman with a cup of coffee to run back to the PO real quick to grab your new TF10s :D

Yeah. I'm already considering replacing the cables on my TF10s with some silver, only because the stock cables suck though.

Already have a pair in my bedroom. Monitor Audio RX8s. I'm also what might be called a "home theater enthusiast." I also have a 5.1 setup and 50' plasma in my room. We are the 1%!
