I put in my TF10s and enjoyed not hearing a single bit of the music they were playing.

My old school had decent speakers in the important areas. Mostly JBLs. Cheapo Skytec rubbish in the classrooms though. There was some sweet vintage stuff in the music dept though. Pair of Rogers BBC monitors, etc.

Lucky one!

You know you're an audiophile when you do this just to confirm your previous expectations. I do actually detect a very small difference between 24/88 and 16/44 but it's so subtle that I can't give an accurate answer as to which is which.

No more HD tracks for me.

I call it, How to make your siblings buy good headphones! good name right?

Step 1: Get them to hear your gear, also get them to compare with their own and acknowledge that yours are better (win-win for you too because it helps boost your ego) also don't try to reveal too much of the price if the gear is expensive.

Step 2: Convince them to buy a good set of headphones, if they refuse to spend money because they are content with crap Apple earbuds, you can gift them headphones. Don't spend too much because you still want that new amp.

Step 3: Once they have heard the good sound they will eventually be craving for more. If they don't, lend them your gear, maybe for 1-2 weeks (only applies if your gear is better) also lend them some of your high quality FLAC/ALAC/CD's if your music taste is similar.

Step 4: Make your self the go-to person when they ask about sound and technology, because then they will see and feel your gear and get know your enthusiasm for sound, this will hopefully rub off of them. Also introduce them to head-fi.

Step 5: ???

Step 6: Profit!

It makes me SO mad they put those damn stickers on perfectly fine sleeves. Every now and then, it leaves a dark rectangle on lighter colored albums

8 pm.  Listening to music while doing some research.  Heard something here and there.  Fiddled with the headphone/player/EQ/checking other songs if effect is the same... etc.  Appreciating the music goodness the phones offer.

8 am.  Overdosed with music goodness.  No work done.  No sleep.
8 am.  Posting on headfi.

I got my hair cut today..... having downloaded Florence and the Machine discography and a the xx album(both mastered very well) and after listening to them with longer hair for the past several weeks I feel stupid for trying to analyze anything with long hair. Getting it cut made such a huge difference, they don't even sound like the same cans.
