I think I'm in too deep.

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

Last night I had a dream featuring headphones.

 

I came upon a dimly lit library with many shelves. Rather than having books on the shelves, various headphones were present. From left to right they seemed to increase in quality. On the left there were headphones such as Koss PortaPros and KSC75s. In the middle there were headphones like Beyerdynamic DT770/DT880/DT990, Sennheiser HD600/HD650, Denon D2000, and more. Then,  on the right, I saw the holy grail of shelves. The shelf was a beautiful wood and had a light pointed at it, almost to honour it. 

 

This shelf had Sennheiser Orpheus, Sony R10, Qualia, K1000, and any high end you can imagine. I was excited. I immediately grabbed the R10 and handled it as gently as a baby. I placed them on my head and pressed play. 

 

I heard a tinny, horrible sound. I was shocked and appalled. But then I thought, "These must be the bass-light version, duh." (That made sense in my dream). So I grabbed the other pair of R10 and placed them on my head. It was everything I dreamed it to be, literally. The bass was creamy and delicious, the mids were liquid smooth, and the highs were so sparkly I could be blinded if I closed my eyes.

 

It was a great dream so far, but then things got weird. I grabbed the Sennheiser Orpheus next, while I still had the R10 on my head. I had it by the earcups so the headband was facing upwards. I then proceeded to bite the headband. I bit the Sennheiser Orpheus. The Orpheus. I snapped out of it, luckily, and placed exchanged them with the R10 on my head. I then woke up feeling happy, yet very confused. 

 

I'm in too deep into this hobby.

Yes, indeed you're into "it" too deep.  How deep only you can tell.

 

You need to slowly switch your HPs hobby to another hobby such as golfing or hiking to release your energy. There will be a withdraw consequence(s) so you may need professional help if that should occur.

 

According to Freud, your need for female compassion has manifested into the dreams of a pair of headphones that represent woman physical intimidated parts. If you have dreams of snakes then you should evaluate your life style.biggrin.gif

 

Do not be confused . I have dreams of beautiful woman often and I normally wake up and take a long drive to the massage place to relax and I also bring my HPs along with me. As long as you are happy, be happy and have a happy ending,darthsmile.gif

I wish my dreams were that coherent.  Last dream I remember I was buying handcrafted blow darts to hunt foxes with.

I'm glad you woke up before n3rdling turned into the HULK!!

 

(That is a MUCH better dream than being chased by the police...or so I've heard.)

I love the Freudian approach! I'm a psychology major, so maybe I should write a thesis paper on this! :D

I won't bite them too much. :P Just for a taste. One doesn't have many opportunities in life to bite such nice equipment.

I haven't dreamed of speakers yet, though perusing through the high-end forum and seeing many of the nicer rigs may lead me down that path. Some of the speakers I have seen are GORGEOUS!

I have always had very vivid and detailed dreams. In every dream I can taste, smell, see, feel, and hear. Occasionally I am able to control the dream and have sort of "super powers."

 

I have had really boring dreams, though. Waiting in line at the post office is not a fun dream. :c

Don't make him angry. You won't like him when he's angry. >:)

 

I haven't dreamed of being chased by the police, though with my luck I will tonight. I'll let you know!

Yeah. http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/554569/yodobashi-camera-in-akihabra

 

O.O I want to go to Japan just to have that experience. There are many more shops than that one.

I was thinking of trying to make your dream a reality at one point...these units + the $12 rubbermaid hose holder/headphone stands would have been the MUCH less expensive part of the dream!

Wow, you dreamed headphones. Congrats, you are VERY DEEP into this hobby (and I mean that; that is, if you actually dreamed about it). I own the Sennheiser HD650 (actually, I own various pairs, including Sennheiser 280pro, but the HD650 is by far the best headphone I have). Allow me to interpret your dream, at least in part. Your quest to seek great headphones bespeaks a deeper journey seeking great music. I don't know if you listen to high-resolution music (sacd, blu ray, and dvd-audio), but great music plus audio begins with classical music. Interestingly classical music is the most diffiucult to reproduce via headphones. High resolution classical music: best upgrade overall.

Where?

 

I've seen one headphone store in Osaka that has dozens of headphones on display to try, is that the one you mean? Or somewhere else?
