And this is a good thing? Why not care? I try to care about anything in life. What is the point of living if you don't care? There's so much time in the day, you have nothing to do but to fill it with things you care about. Family, entertainment, yourself -- how is there anything wrong with being as interested as you can be in as many things as you can be?
Some people spend their energy caring about things other than headphone, and that is perfectly okay. Life can be worth living without giving two hoots about the small nuances of headphones. So, it isn't really a good thing or a bad thing, most people have very different priorities than audiophiles, and they shouldn't have dirt thrown on them because of it. That is the smugness I am talking about.
