Doping your gf into an audiophile - Page 3

post #31 of 70

I don't necessarily want to turn my gf into an audiophile, I just need her to understand that I NEED to swap out equipment when I feel the need

post #32 of 70

My knowledge of headphones is limited as I'm much more into IEMs, but I've slowly been turning my GF into an audiophile. It took some time, but I can now use audiophile terms to describe sound to her and have her understand! She also supports me fully when I buy expensive after market cables biggrin.gif

I seriously blame my wife for all of this.  She's not a headphone fan but by christ she made me one.  She listens to music on her laptop or therough her Pioneer VSX-1120K with Energy CF 50 towers.  She does have a pair of Senn 518's, but they're never around when she listens to Josh F'kin Groban.  I offered to get her a nice stylish pair of wooden headphones to match the decor of the room but she turned them down. Oh well, what you gonna do?

I'm with you....although she is much more understanding when she realizes she gets my old equipment as I replace it, lol. Like now for example, i'm planning on upgrading to some Yamaha monitors and she's already trying to figure out where my current speakers are going. This is how I am able to get away with it.

I read that in Dr. Doofenshmirtz voice... i still can't it seriously.

It really sounds like something he would say.

She..  hates headphones..  but the HD800 reminds her of Star Wars Tie Fighters so she tried the HD800 on..  but only because she loves Star Wars..  and not because HD800s are a top top headphone...

Step 1: Replace girlfriend's iBud drivers with Yuin drivers

 

Step 2: Watch her expression as she realises her earphones sound "different"

 

Step 3: ???

Profit: your girlfriend is now an audiophile.

Well you can't get both ends of the world. My gf has such a small head and looks like a ET when with headphones on k701smile.gif

She was not impressed by the HD800?! Not even getting her interested in headphones?! The soundstaging from ibuds to those are, are *no words in the dictionary could describe such change* !!!

 

 

 

------------------------

We went to the ath store today and we demo'd the W1000x, and AB'd with the AD900 since hers has not arrived yet. I liked how she tried the other ath line up e.g. m50 and pro mkII and commented 'none of those are comparable to what you have' XD So she must be able to tell the difference between a HD580 and a m50 haha

The airy-ness and soundstage of the iBuds are quite something actually. They easily beat 100 dollar IEMs.

but it is the HD800!

 

Well to be honest i never tried any of the iBuds... I used my chance to demo the HD800 during a meet and omg omg it became my definition of good soundstaging. Later on I found it a bit artificial but having said that I gave it ~20min of listening. It was still something

 Sarcasm, or.... ? The iBuds didn't seem to have great soundstaging to my ears :S

I recently had a "headphone consultation" with a lady friend of mine.  Got her to start with a pair of Creative Aurvana Live!.  I'm so glad her budget was greater than "What sounds good for $20?"
