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.

Wouldn't want to pay $180 though. Especially when it normally sells for $100-120.

I bought it for $110 + a bit of shipping cost, UPS screwed me over and I had to pay upwards of $70 in "brokerage fees" to them; hence $180 (this is excluding shipping costs like my other estimations ofc).

Well true. My first pair was $90 back in the day. Kinda hard to pay more once you paid a certain amount. Like buying my two D7Ks for just under $600. I see them for $800, and I'm like "no way", even when that's like a normal price.

Know what you mean. I have been shipping to India and each time it costs in excess of $ 120. I just console myself with the thought that I ship the equipment in bulk. More importantly, these things are just not available here. To give you some context, the Beats Pro costs about $400 (22,000 in local currency terms). You can buy them legally in India for 38,000 local currencyangry_face.gif

A little late here, but my headphone journey so far.

 

Pre-head-fi:

 

Sennheiser HD 280 pro = 110 Euro

 

Post Head-fi:

 

First setup:

 

iPod +E17 + Sennheiser IE80 = 400 Euro (not including iPod)

 

Sold those off and got my second and current setup:

 

ODAC + M-stage + HE-400 = 730 Euro

 

So total 1240 euros, not too bad
