You Know You're an Audiophile When.. Version 2! - Page 74

post #1096 of 5402

You know you're an audiophile when Bandcamp says you are:

 

Gawd I love she.

http://sheofficial.bandcamp.com/track/archetype

 

 

 

......and you know you're an audiophile when the audiophile Bandcamp download doesn't have properly tagged files and you get mad.

Sweet holy mother of huskies...you know you're an audiophile when you get excited about meeting a professor at your university to talk about post-graduation plans and the professor's brother was involved with the creation of the iPod.

So are you from UW and are you going to grad school?

Yup, I'm going there at the moment.

 

And yup, eventually/hopefully I will get accepted into a graduate school program.

I knew it.  I was with ACMS for undergrad then Applied Math for my MS.

Hey that's where I want to go for Industrial design! lol

Hahaha, nice! Though not completely the same, one of my friends graduated with a BS in industrial engineering.

Wah, that's cool. I'm in the bioengineering program and I'm not quite sure what I want to do for graduate school yet. Right now I'm taking classes in tissue engineering since I declared that as my focus area and I'm interested in regeneration of tissues, but now I'm kind of interested in signals and processing for hearing devices. Apparently there's not a lot of engineers in the otolaryngology area and they're mostly biology-related scientists. That's interesting and all, but I'm kind of interested in developing something to regain hearing function. Tissue engineering isn't really headed in that direction, apart from bio-printed ears.

 

You know you're an audiophile when you're interested in restoring hearing function even though the hobby of audiophilia is probably doing the exact opposite. XD

Have you talked to the folks in the Human Interface Lab?

Not yet, but it looks interesting. I might arrange a meeting with someone there to ask about the subject.

And now there's a bionic ear. Finally, people can hear those 51 kHz signals that the HD800 can reproduce while listening to 24/192 music. biggrin.gif

When you listen to a song that you've known for several years and, for the first time pick up a little bit of ambient noise in the beginning of the song that you've never ever heard before.  I just stared at the new DAC I got 2 months ago and smiled.  lol I'm sure I'll do the same thing again when I upgrade my weakest link (Fiio e9) to a $450 Lake people amp, and then again when I hopefully get LCD 2.2s, and then again in X number of years when I get my hands on some Stax :3

You can get a new basic STAX system (headphone + amplifier) for 2/3 the price of the LCD-2s. Just saying. biggrin.gif

Of course you can! Not all electrostats are created equal(right?).  I could buy working car for less than LCD 2s but it wouldn't be regarded as "high end" by anyone.  Also, I felt kinda bad spending $2300 on my first car, I thought about all the audiophile goodness that could be had instead of a 77 Nova... Priorities suck.

Cars are often expensive + the road tax... The worse of all about car is that the longer distance you drove, the lower the resale value.

YKYAAW you decided to give your brother a Bluetooth headset so that he will become part of us and on the other hand, you have too many sitting on your desk

Are you implying cheaper stax 'stats aren't as hi-end as the lcd-2?
