Amen!

Last night I had a dream too similar to Fushigi Yuugi.  Only not animated.
Why is this relevant?  The book is titled "AKG 550" for whatever reason.

To think that I don't even own a real headphone yet.  It must be a sign.  I'm an audiophile in the making.

when you get withdrawal symptoms going from full-size open headphones to budget IEM

When you are this thread
post #5706 of 6356

When you're taking a course surveying America's pop music and smile when you read "The better the sound quality your computer (or other technology) can provide, the more meaningful the course's investigation of music will be for you" and "Week 1: Introduction to the Study of Popular Music - Issues and goals; the nature of critical listening".

Would very much have liked to see a head-fier get it. It was soooooo tempting. Probably the cheapest I have ever seen a SR-009 go for.

 

Getting back on-topic, you know you're an audiophile when you worry more about getting a way to fund your new speakers than your results in the national examination, to be announced tomorrow. Seriously, I am thinking of a way to get some KEF LS50s as a 16-year old kid without bothering my parents and getting them to pay for it. I foresee this current condition to change by tonight.

You know your an Audiophile when you realize that the local bar is using Winamp to play music and seriously try to work the word "Winamp" into a pickup line for the cute barmaid... 

(couldn't find one)

You know you're an audiophile when the majority of your thoughts involve chasing audio White Whales.  My latest one downloading my vinyl to high rez audio preferably at or above 24/96.  Man this gets expensive fast!  16/44 no problem, MP3's no sweat.  Try getting above that and you need to turn you're house into a recording studio.  I want to give it up but I can't.

I am sure this has been said but, when constantly explaining to co-workers why I paid $450.00 for some IEMs that don't look that much different than their $5.00 apple earbuds. Also questioning oneself when another respected audiophile negatively reviews your favorite IEM. And finally when you let a co-worker hear your $450.00 IEM and they look at you like...whaatever!!!

One is certain one is an audiophile when one sells a component, buys it back later on, and then cannot remember why he/she had sold it in the first place.
