Cool! I like guessing games. I'll guess: "throwing"

Try putting all the "four letter words" into a post and adding "ing" to them and watch what happens when you submit it. That might give you a clue.
(Unless you already knew that, in which case my sarcasm detector might be broken today).
If we are going to ridicule cable swappers may as well ridicule tube swappers.
May as well throw in Op Amp rollers too.
And while we are at it, all DACs sound the same.
The analog output of your iPod is all you need!
I have spoken!
The subject is closed!
Prepare to be annihilated!
The alien invasion/destruction begins tomorrow!
Or maybe the day after tomorrow.
I giggled out loud. Bravo
Laugh all you want.
Laugh while you can.
The aliens will annihilate you first!
I know this is true, because I saw the movie Prometheus and came to some very rational conclusions.....................they are coming!
Pleased I just bought the HE500's instead of going through all that malarkey!
Yeah there are a lot of mods on here and I'm not just talking about peeps that like "The Who".. I've been guilty of a few; removing the foam out the the 650 drivers and replacing it with toilet paper was one of my most revelatory moments in this hobby! And it wasn't even the posh quilted stuff!
That's what I used to think in the beginning.
But if one enjoys collecting headphones, seeing how gear compare and compete with each other, challenging their listening abilities when trying out different dac's/amps/IEM's, witnessing subtle improvements (?), experimenting with headphone mods....................then clearly the 'gear' has taken on a life, purpose and allure within itself to some degree. There's nothing wrong with that. Nothing wrong with that at all.
I get asked a lot of the time about this hobby (by friends and even random strangers) and everyone asking seem genuinely captivated when I tell them. It's far, far, from being a crap hobby and I especially hate it (not directed to you!) when there are people who have grown out of this type of hobby- after going through 150 headphones- and conclude that it's all about the music in the end, not the gear. Because if it was, then what made this dood go through so much gear? Hey, probably the third headphone the guy picked up was perfectly fine and satisfactory from a musical enjoyment perspective. For me if it was purely about the music and not the gear, then I would get rid of everything I have and only leave behind the £6 philips she3590 to be paired with my ageing samsung sgs smartphone. Full stop.
