To all you folks who are addicted to this hobby, admitting that is the first step.
But now it's time for some intervention therapy. What you need to do is pick three headphones from your collection and send the remainder to me. I'll "keep them safe" and help you wean yourself from this horrible addiction. Also, you need to send me any money you had earmarked for the purchase of new headphones, DACs, amps, etc. If you have no money and no headphones, you can't be addicted, see?
YKYAA when you your excuse for wearing your IEMs in class is that you're "evaluating them for review" and that being surrounded by other people is a good test of their isolation. Of course class hasn't actually started yet, but still, here I am with these things jammed in my ears, watching people file in.
