Been stalking the forums for a few months reading about what decent IEM's I should be looking for, and I figured I would pop my head in the door and say hi... HI!
Short about me..
29 year old male currently living in Norway, formerly living in San Diego CA. Always kinda wanted to be an audiophile, but never really found the time, or the real interest honestly, to get involved. Lately been more and more interested in getting the most I can out of my free time, yeah... got a kid recently ;), and as a large company already coined... "Life is too short to listen to bad headphones".
Currently my rig consists of:
Source: Iphone 3GS
IEM's: Monster Turbine w/ Control talk
Music preference at the moment..
Electronic music with heavy bass emphasis.
I try to only use 320 bit rate, but yeah... sometimes you just cant find the songs you want at that rate.
This site has soooo much great info that I am somewhat of a loss as where to start my journey towards knowing more about how to setup my listening experience. To that end I was wondering if someone could do me a soild and throw me some links to threads that they found especially helpful for someone starting out.
What I would be interested in learning more about would be:
Equalizing... pros and cons not to mention should I bother?
Amps... I hear a lot of talk about people using amps and getting a large improvement on their SQ, are my Turbines really going to benefit that much from an amp?
In general I would be interested in anything that people would deem interesting / worth knowing for a beginning head-fi'er.
Thanks in advance for your replies, and thanks again for having a great knowledge-base already established.
