can there be too much Head-Fi?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

I think I am addicted to Head-Fi.  I found myself in Ross yesterday and I was looking at jeans but i saw some headphones from Solo Audio and my first reaction was to look them up on Head-Fi to see if they are any good.  I do this everywhere I go if I see headphones... 

 

Am I hopelessly addicted to this site?

 

I have never learned so much about audio until I came here...

 

Does any one else have interesting Head-Fi stories involving checking it at strange times?

You think you are addicted to Head-Fi? I joined 4/2011. Got about 50 posts and my starter rig and left.... in November 2011 I came back and still had 50 posts and looked for a new rig. From November 2011 to now.... Ive upped my rigs and have spent record time on Head-fi.... I'm the one that's addicted!!! 

 

^that's the story basically.

Yeah, I thought it was bad that I cleared 5000 recently, but there's a few of you "party all the time" types that just remind me how sane I am. tongue.gif

I'm waiting for someone to surpass krmathis' high score. I'm guessing it will happen sooner rather than later. Maybe it'll prompt his return to defend the title as well. cool.gif

Anyways, yeah, Head-Fi has something appealing about it relative to other forums - it's both active and interesting, despite being "repetitive" by contrast. To somewhat mirror bowei's response - I joined whenever it says I did, and left around 2009, I came back a few months ago and went from around 4000 to however many posts I have now. Yeah...

Oh? Who? He had something like 30-40k iirc - but that was over a very long period of time.

post counts must be of some prestige around these parts....

 

Who has the most post anyway and can their information and knowledge be trusted?

Post counts have no prestige on head fi officially. We are just having a chat here is all smily_headphones1.gif

It doesnt guarantee knowledge but does help reinforce your views and info you post to others, newbies, and lurkers.

....... I'll break the taboo and be that guy. But it does mean something, to the newcommers and lurkers really. Which is good and bad. Most newcommers and lurkers will practically take any badged and especially HS badged member's words as gold and that shouldn't be done and is...quite bad really. Members that are established and know the ways of Head-Fi itself the badge won't mean much to. To sponsors and manufactures that are giving out review chances...rank has a slight(not too much) emphasis on who they choose but not much.

 

And having a loaded profile page and signature box with a professional picture that is constant and actually unique differentiates yourself from others and gains you fame.... that's basically how head-fi works.

.....now that I am reading back on that comment, it really looks idiotic...but hey, like I always say. The rank doesn't really mean anything to people that are constant head-fiers. WE can poke fun at  it here :)

 

I practically live on head-fi..........
