However, most of my friends around me who owned more expensive gears (compared to friends who are satisfied with radio quality or apple earbuds) slowly converges their music taste to audiophile recordings and vocal centric musics as their gears "upgrade".
Me? With my new gears, I found some love for drums. Bon Jovi, Fleetwood Mac, Deep Purple, The Who, and etc. I don't know if it's the gear influencing my choice of music or otherwise, but somehow I do enjoy it more compared to before.
But one thing I notice of myself, when I'm tired after whole day work, vocal-centric musics can be really enjoyable. Does the gear affect my choice of music? I'd like to think so too. One thing for sure, I find pop songs or the ones from TOP BILLBOARDs rather unenjoyable. Some said it's due to the poor recording of pop songs, some said it's the commercialize of pop songs and their lack of "true" quality. I don't know. Just find it less enjoyable now.
