Whenever I talk about headphones with my dad he will be usually say something like "listen son, till you get a real set of high end speaker, you will no longer like headphones"

What amp/DAC he uses for the HD650? XD

He also has a mid-fi speaker setup and didn't see the point of headphones until I let him listen to my HD25 hooked up to my DX50...convenient sound with reasonable quality!

He's using a Mytek Digital Stereo 192 DSD-DAC and a cheap HK$1380 Chinese amp designed for the HD6x0s.

When you sit on your W4's, break the nozzle and purchase another pair within two weeks...my mind would not rest until I had them.

My top four in order, Youtube, ebay, audiogon, head-fi... All four used for exploring my audio pursuits.

Oh boy. You know you're an audiophile when you finish writing detailed impressions of a headphone at 2 AM, and when you go to class later that day and your professor is talking about transparency [of the court system in China], all you think about is the lack of transparency of the headphone you were writing about earlier. >.>

 

You know you're an audiophile when you're enjoying a nice beverage in a restaurant and upon seeing someone walk by with headphones outside, you immediately stop everything you're doing to stare at the headphone in order to identify them. V-MODA Crossfade M-100 sighting!

YKYAAW you spent 3 hours changing out your speaker wire from 16 gauge to 10 gauge and shortening the wire run from 10 feet to 5 feet, for better sound of course.

YKYAAW you are unwilling to delay the time for you to buy the new headphone you have chosen!

Finding myself actually trying to rationalize weather to purchase the dx 50 or purchase groceries for my kids to eat. The kids won....but it wasn't a easy decision. LOL!!!
