I'm really LOVING listening to headphones.
I mean absolutely LOVE it.... and I'm surprised, because just 2 years ago, I swore I would never do the headphone thing again.
2 YEARS AGO:
I got on head-fi (like many people do when they start out) and started reading about the different headphones, dacs, amps, etc. Man, these descriptions of how gear sounded were sooooooooo ENTICING!! So, not even knowing what I was getting into, I saved some money and dropped it on a fairly sizable rig.
I guess I was expecting some kind of THREE DIMENSIONAL sound or something, so when I heard this high-quality headphone setup I just couldn't stop thinking "I spent 2-GRAND on THIS??!??!?!"
After I sold my headphone-rig and the BITTERNESS subsided, I started to gradually remember the good things about how it sounded. As time went on, I couldn't enjoy listening to the OUTPUT of my LAPTOP and started longing for that THICK, EASY, FULL, LUSH sound that I once had. So, two years later (presently) I bought a smaller version of everything that I once had, and maybe because of the PRICE/PERFORMANCE ratio, I am absolutely in heaven listening for a few hours each night.
Thank you head-fi.
