If I had $5k on hand, I would certainly not be spending it on a set of headphones....lol.

I could drop $50 on any headphones I want - and I wouldn't think twice about buying two or three of them to see which ones I liked best. I think that's the same attitude you need to have no matter what price tier you are playing in. If you can't - then you are in over your head! wink.gif

I'm not even tempted to look at the Summit-Fi stuff. In fact, I'm not really drawn to the mid-level stuff at the moment, either. Every time I get the bug to get a new set of headphones, I eventually talk myself out of it. I guess I just don't feel like I'm missing too much with what I've got, and/or I don't really like the choices I have at the level I can spend. For instance, I had a mild fascination with the HD5x8 series recently. For the holidays I was going to pick up an HD558, do the foam mod (to save the $50 plus the shame of wearing something that looks as ridiculous as the HD598), and pick up a few other assorted, unrelated items. I ended up getting a Nexus 7 instead. I feel like I must have some sort of fantastic will or something to be as active around this place as I am and somehow manage to avoid buying more cans. Maybe Gandalf should have selected me to carry the Ring to Mt. Doom. :biggrin:

A fine choice! 

The last two headphones I bought outright were my JVC HA-S500s, and the Ultrasone HFI-15G portables...and I made trades to get the Ultrasone HFI-780s and the CAL! I have another 7 or 8 sets, but they all are unused for the most part. I really haven't felt the need to go any higher up the headphone heirarchy....the years of damage done to my ears while growing up kind of make the idea pointless. I enjoy my main three...S500, HFI-780, and CAL! and am entirely content with them.

 

I had some ongoing ear infection issues, so for a while I barely used headphones at all....but my Nexus 7, I use all the time.:D

The 2013 Nexus 7 is good, but I'm liking the LG G Pad even more. I've got it rooted and running CM11, with my Dragonfly hooked up, and it sounds awesome with my TH900s. It sounds like a setup that's much more expensive.

I have a goal to buy a T50RP and mod them. I have heard what I consider the best two incarnations of the baseline T50RP - the Mad Dogs & the Magickman's. If I can get close to either of those I am going to be very, very happy. I would have already bought them - but the little misunderstanding I had with a lidar gun in November sort of quashed my Xmas toy budget. redface.gif

I'm thinking seriously about getting the Google Play edition of the G Pad. It would be a nice "big brother" to my 2012 Nexus 7, and then I could find a new home for my old Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus.

I have the Optimus G Pro for a phone, with LG's skin on it, and although I do quite like the phone, I have grown to appreciate the pure Google approach (no bloat, and regular OS updates) now that I have had the Nexus 7 for a while.

Yeah, first thing you do is root and install CM11, it's just better in every way. If you have CWM Pro, it'll even install all the kernel upgrades for you, without losing anything, which is even better than getting official Android updates.
