Have I mentioned how much I love this thread lol. Funny stuff.
When your solution to anything that doesn't fit is "If it aint working right, mod the crap outta it."

I actually noticed the SCAR first, then the girl, then the AT's.

You solder headphone cables in your sleep. Seriously, I've done this many, many times.

Then I have a nightmare that I accidentally held my soldering iron like a pen again. Yes, I've done this!

 

I don't know if sex related dreams for men is common, but for me, I've had more headphone related dreams. Isn't this sad?

 

Sometimes I analyze headphones in my sleep. Pathetic...

 

Often I'm seriously dead tired and I'll recable something just to hear it before going to bed. Same feeling as money burning a hole in your pocket. I did this the other day with my new KSC75 and a Canare cable. I went to sleep and my recabled KSC75 was in my bed.

 

Stupidest thing is comparing interconnect cables. It makes telling the difference between actual headphone recables look EASY. I rarely hear any differences and if so it's like a 1-2% change. Belden was the first interconnect cable that sounded like a decent improvement.

When you have a dream about headphones. True story. I just had a dream about them last night. Saw a pair custom iems with a clear shell and white cables, a M50, a 7506 and a pair of non-existent headphones that looks like the Sony ZX700 but with a circular white LED on the center of the cups. atsmile.gif

When you are going to travel in a few days and you still haven't decided which headphones to take with you!

 

When the flight attendant stares at your stacked equipment (for example my Iriver H140 + Ibasso D10) 

- What (on earth) is that?

- It's an mp3 player...

- are you sure? C'mon!

IT HAS HAPPENED TO ME TWICE!

I'm gonna be doing some traveling soon with my iBasso D6, Ultrasone HFI-780, and iPod classic 160GB, and hopefully soon a Cypherlabs Algorythm Solo.

 

Should be interesting.

You know you're an audiophile when... you listen to the motown hits, living in motown, but were too young/or not born to listen to them when they came out originally

You might be an audiophile if you buy a pair nice headphones only to troll the Beats infested water of your local college.

You know when you're an audiophile when your girlfriend berates you for buying six hundred dollar headphones and a three hundred dollar headphone amp and you say" What's the big deal?" The best part is, it's not a big deal dt880smile.png

When you trade your house for a hundred headphones.

post #866 of 6356
When you think back before your audio revelation and think: what I fool I was back then.

Back then, when I thought I would get beautiful sound by buying a $25 pc speakerset.
Back then, when I thought my Sennheiser CX 300 sounded like summit-fi.
Back then, when I thought bass equalled sound quality
Back then, when I thought sound cards and external DACs couldn't possibly have the slightest effect on sound quality.
Back then, when I thought that Razer headphones actually had decent sound quality for their price.
Back then, when I thought that you shouldn't listen to music per album, but rather by selecting an artist or genre and hitting shuffle.
Back then, when I thought that my dad listened to abominable music.
Back then, when I thought that all headphones sounded the same
Back then, when I thought that audiophiles were fools acting solemnly on a placebo.
Back then, when I thought that vinyl is for hippies and old people not wanting to change to digital media.
Back then, when I thought that music was only to be listened to on the background, and should not be thought of as an actual activity.
Back then, when I thought a DAP with 4GB had more than enough storage.

Oh heavens, what a fool I was back then. Tell me, how could I possibly repent for my endless list of sins? Oh heavens, tell me it's not too late to repent.

Wait... that's in the present tense. You actually did this?
Don't get scammed by getting 100 iBuds. That would be the worst thing ever wink.gif

I might consider it for 100 SR-009's though. That would be worth $500,000. The problem would be selling them, on the other hand.

You have nothing to eat till your next pay check (two week time) and you're more concerned about your ear impressions reaching safely than food.
