Well in my defense I've always liked gadgets/tech. And looking for headphones with better than iBud sound was something I did within a small budget for years (have never used stock buds that come with MP3 players). Really, the K-ON thing was just a little push into a higher tier and its still the only anime related purchase I've ever made.
I'd like to purchase a nice electric guitar someday though...
edit: Also, I researched for weeks and bought a DAC/AMP before buying the K701s so it definitely wasn't an impulse buy. Wouldn't have payed 300 bucks for the K701s if general opinion on them wasn't positive.
