I can feel the rhythm and move with the melody of life.

“What your headphones say about you?”
That I LOVE listening to music and I really want to feel the full sensation music can give you. But since my budget is fairly limited I bought a pair of IE8's.
I haven't tried anything else but can't imagine there are other iem's that can give you more joy while you really listen to the eagles or the album ''Gold" by Ryan Adams.
I think my headphones say that I like bang for my buck, and can't afford some of the higher end headphones/earphones some have been so lucky to own or have the chance to enjoy. They show that I like a neutral sound with a bit of a bass bias without being overpowering, never blocking out the beautiful crisp highs. Always isolating me from outer noises allowing me to become one with my music.
The modifications to my JVC HA-RX700's including added padding and removed felt pad allowed me to wear them for hours on end and enjoy the clarity they provide for such a low price. The Audio Technica ATH-M50's were a wonderful gift and perfect upgrade needing no modification except a little stretching. They provide me with almost the exact same sound signature, but more clarity for still a decent price. They show my want for higher quality equipment, but need to stay "Budget-Fi." My Visang R03's were also a "Budget-Fi" purchase, but a well loved one at that. They allowed me to bring my music with me on days that I visited my mom for hours each day in the hospice center where she battled with her cancer. While she is no longer with us these headphones have allowed me to listen to music's healing powers on some of the darker days I have endured.
I believe my headphones (Sennheiser Amperior) say much about me and my love of great quality sound to accompany talented music. My headphones say that I take time to research a product before buying into it. It also says I can live with an ugly paIr of headphones is the sound quality is to my standard (I think the Amperiors are quite ugly) Witch brings me to the following. I definitely wouldn't mind sporting the AMAZING looking Heir 4.Ai’s. Those headphones would say much about my style ; )
I believe your headphones say that you have a passion for music, clarity, detail and the ability to moved, by the music that they deliver. Not so much as a status symbol to say look what I can afford; but how much you love the music, and effort gone into the making of the music. I would love a set of earphones that just make me stop and just lose myself and envelope me in the music. To feel as if I'm there with the musicians as it is being played. My headphones say that I take my music seriously and don't bother me while they're on.
I've only had a few headphones, and earphones. A pair Sony MDR V6's that are over 20 years old given to me by an old friend that still sound great for V6's, a pair of HD580's that when purchased nearly 15 years ago I believe that I love to listen to, l own them along with a pair of Yuin PK2's that I really like. My first pair of Ety's, HF3's, B&O A8's that suck, and my latest, Triple FI 10's that I wish I could brighten up and get more instrument separation, more detail.
I think my growing collection of headphones as a young enthusiast who has found his way into the audiophile world shows how my love for music is being taken to a different level. The once "I'm happy with these earbuds that come with the IPod" now craves for more headphones, for different ways and "perspectives" at listening to music. I love to recapture the moment with the musicality of such headphones. I have a pair of V-moda M80s, Vsonic GR06, and Vsonic GR02's. You can tell that I like the slightly warm, fluid midrange with decent soundstage that these headphones/in-ears offer. It's a way of relaxation for me as well.
