My congratulatory message from HF finally went away yesterday. Including first post directions, how to upload pix/avatar and such.
Now K-mok can get back to being, well... K-mok!
well... I passed it 3 times :) still don't know jack schiit
My conjecture is.... is that K-mok-chan is the person in your picture? :D
Thank you for participating in the Head-Fi member reincarnation program. You may now return to your past life.
I doubt we ever will, but we'll always keep trying.
I guess I am past the "supremus" point three times as well, but I still would not consider myself any kind of expert.
At this point, the majority of my posts are in this thread, I think. In fact I'm almost sure of it. I had around 875 or so posts before I joined TMAC around the middle of October last year. Now I'm nearly at 2,000. In some ways I almost feel like my headphone journey has been too easy, in that I'm pretty satisfied with what I've got (I still want a really nice IEM, though), and that the next upgrade is going to have to be something from a price bracket with an extra figure before I imagine the improvement will be significant enough to justify upgrading at all. I feel like if I'd gone through a few more different models in my search before arriving at my current stable I might have a bit more to talk about, but then that just means I wouldn't have gotten to spend as much time with the sets I actually ended up enjoying enough to keep.
In any event, I certainly can't claim to be an expert based on any of the above. I think the main contribution I've offered to this forum (apart from those reviews I did, which reminds me I've still got the MA-350 one to do for the billionth time by now) is my occasional walls of text about setting aside all the audiophile stuff and just listening to the music, and reminding everybody that the headphones are supposed to disappear--if you're listening to the gear all the time, IMO you're doing it wrong. That and I've had some pretty good timing with a few of my posts and (hopefully) made some people smile or chuckle with amusement. Or look on in puzzled bemusement when, in the wee hours of the morning, I post something weird.
I never got the whole goth thing. I guess I just never followed the fads much. I remember in middle school catching sight of a pasty-faced, short-haired girl, done to the hilt in eyeliner, with spots of brilliant red and green dye on opposite sides of her black-dyed head--red on the left, green on the right. At least she got the sides right! I'm not sure if this was some weird hybrid goth/ship fashion (near as I can tell she didn't have a ship's wheel, funnels, or screws attached to her anywhere) or what, but it amused me enough that I remember it even today.
Wait, that's bad how?
Hmm, I seem to remember SOMEBODY saying that they'd never reach Supremus...
Funny you should mention that, I'm thinking of selling my UE700. Dunno if that qualifies as really nice in your book though. Are you talking about kilobuck stuff?
