I currently have $1300 in hp's, lyr, bifrost. I'd rather be at a grand. It would take at least an hour to list everything I've bought and sold. Not sure that I want to do it.

I can only imagine how exhaustingly long the list would be for some people.

Talking about spending on head-fi, I just bought a Burson HA-160 for $500 AUD on FS forums.

 

Now I'll need a HE-6 to justify the purchase. Oh the vicious circle... biggrin.gif

 

This hobby sure isn't good for my financial health.

My HD595s, while somewhat thin and certainly not perfect, are still maybe 70-80% of the HE-400s to my ears. The 400s just add some bass and texture that can't be touched by them. In all honesty, the O2/ODAC (vs hi-fi laptop sound) basically made the HD-595s sound even better (albeit with more fatiguing mids and treble), while the 400s mainly got the blackness and extra power they needed to sound their best (while the extra bass is somewhat fatiguing on some music).

I take the same attitude into regular speakers - right now I'd rather have a $250 dollar receiver, 40 inch TV, and Andrew Jones Pioneer set up (~$1,000) than a $10,000 dollar rig with state of the art equipment. 80-90% of the performance for a fraction of the price. I do, after all, want to have some sort of environmental conscious and not suck the grid dry just to watch a movie!

That said, as soon as Hifi Man or Sennheiser release another tantilizing $2-$400 dollar product, I am probably screwed. Every couple of years I get the 'itch' to 'switch'. beerchug.gif

80/20 is nearly a universal.

I won't even get started on mine. ;_;
post #9958 of 20489

Hm for me...

 

bought Koss KSC75 -20

bought KSC75 again -20

bought YUIN G2A -50

bought FiiO E3 -10

bought AT ATH-M50 -180

bought FiiO E7 -120

bought HE400 -350

a number of HE400 replacements shipping costs -100

bought FiiO E17 -140

bought HE300 -250

bought HE500 -450

bought Koss SportaPros + P.E. headband -35

 

Man that's about $1750 spent over the past 2.5 years or so. I don't like to sell things so equipment I don't use either go in storage or are indefinitely lent to friends/family. Maybe I should start selling some of that gear. If I had saved up and resisted the temptations, could have a summit-fi-worthy rig by now; then again I'd rather not bother with the hassle, HE500 pleases my ears enough.

You can permanently lend stuff to me.  

 

Feel sorry that you paid 180 for the M50.

UPS USA->Canada shipping screwed me over. It was a lesson learned.
