Since I just got into the whole idea of quality sound less than a year ago, I've been trying to explain to my friends why I spend what they consider ridiculous amounts of money on headphones. I find it's really something you can't just explain to someone, they have to experience it as well. But I remember the first couple of months with my Hifiman RE-ZEROs I didn't really see the point in my investment. IMO it takes a lot of listening before you can truly begin to appreciate high end audio. And there's no way I'm lending out all of my gear to a friend for weeks on end. One of my friends said he really liked the B2s when I let him listen to them, but when he got home back to his ibuds he said "I could hear no difference"
So, have you guys had any luck trying to explain/show your friends what high quality audio is all about?
