My year and a half review I guess.
I started on Head-Fi in April of 2011. I started then because it was my birthday. I have always knew of all the tech niches out there and I thought that I would do audio for my next one. And so began my journey through head-fi. I asked all the general noob questions on units like the SR-60 and the HD558 and what not. After a week of reading and asking a lot of questions, I decided on the SRH440. Getting the SRH440 was something I expected to happen to me. I wouldn't like them. I thought they were fake. Obviously they weren't. It was just a non enlightened me asking about where the bass was. I am listening to them right here, and while they aren't perfect, they do what they are marketed for. Studio use on a budget. I then transitioned to the fruit of Ultrasone and got myself lost in EDM for a few months before I went on vacation. During vacation when I went shopping with a friend, I found a fantastic deal on the Q701 and snatched it up right there. That sparked the end of my bowei006 era. I would enter into my Panda-sama era in a few weeks after that day. I just didn't realize it yet. What changed was my outlook on life. I found that I should develop and critical and objective outlook on life and what had been happening. This was fueled not only by my audio journey but also my journey into the systems of the world.
Today a year and a half later,
I started on Head-Fi in December of 2012. I started by opening my computer and checking the thread I co-founded; The Head-Fi Anime Thread. I would read through the tens of posts and post my replies to all the quotes that were worthy of my attention(I'm kidding). A post count of >18,000 stares me in the face as I wonder what the hell I am doing right now. A custom title is under my name along with the Headphoneus Supremeus "rank". This was my goal and I had achieved it. Ever since I first came upon this site, I wanted to be one of THOSE people with their flashy HS signs and customs. I have now acheived it, but that doesn't mean anything like I thought it would a year and a half ago. I am no better than the newb that just came on with a pHD background in electrical engineering or anyone with less Head-Fi swag. So why do I do this? Well I guess it is because I am like a lot of people here. An introvert. I don't really go out and become pro active with my buddies in real life. So with that said, here I am again staring at the Head-Fi post box. I have seen this post box more times than almost all the members on Head-Fi including the founders and admins themselves. I have hit submit more times than Jude has. Yet it brings me little joy other than a smirk.
So I guess right now, a year and a half later,
I am here for one reason. Because I found friends?
