So I'm looking at this video this SnazzyIphoneguy uploaded onto Youtube about how Monster cheated their customers by selling cables that perform as well as regular cheap cable. And now I'm seeing "cables make no noticeable differences to the ear" threads. Anyway this snazzy guy isn't really credible. He goes back on his words, which is definitely a no-no. One time he reviewed Beats as undoubtedly one of the best studio headphones that he's ever used, and a few months later he rewrote the review claiming them to be horrible and overpriced.
On-topic: I'm reading the Audiophile Project Sourcebook to gain a better technical understanding of audio equipment. It's too bad I'm not into electrical engineering, I've always wanted to custom-build my own amp from scratch.
