YKYAA when you talk about families and the only names that come to your mind are BEYERDYNAMIC, GRADO, SENNHEISER, etc and mr Stax rules town...
YKYAAW you spend half on your free time experimenting your audio gears and when you found out something cool through your "experiment" you are happier than getting A+ for A-Math [or any other hardest subject to you] 
You know you're an audiophile when you read "A+" as Audirvana Plus, the media player available on Mac OS X.

YKYAAW you show zero interest on a new iPhone 5S holding by your classmate when whole lot of boys tries to vain with it because there's a random IEM that some others brough and you got attracted by it xD

You know you're an audiophile when you call earphones earphones instead of IEMs (read: in-ear monitors) because $20 earphones from Fred Meyer are anything but a monitor. XD

Sorry, it just really bugs me when people call things like Apple's in-ear earphones in-ear "monitors."

Might as well ask, since I'm still a bit confused about the difference between IEMs and earphones, what do you think does the Bowers & Wilkins C5 considered as? Thanks

A monitor is typically what people use during live performances either through an on-stage speaker system, or a personal monitoring system to keep track of when to play a certain instrument and/or sing. In-ear monitors are used in replace of an on-stage speaker system and are almost always in the form of a custom in-ear monitor (i.e. Ultimate Ears' CIEMS).

 

 

As stated, people around here tend to call every earphone an IEM (In-Ear Monitor), and it just bugs me sometimes. XD

 

 

A studio monitor is a speaker system and/or headphone used to keep track of certain things, such as vocal or instrumental cues; hence monitor. The Sony MDR-V6, MDR-7506, Beyerdynamic DT770, AKG K240 or K271, or Shure SRH440 are commonly used headphones in the studio for vocalists as a vocal monitor. If you want to "hear what the artist hears," don't buy a $1500 USD HD800, but rather a $80 MDR-7506. :)

Everyone's favourite artist.

 

 

 


You know you're an audiophile when you don't believe, or ever use, the term "neutral" because that's impossible to achieve unless you use the exact same equipment as the original mastering engineer. Neutral by definition means no colouration, and if a song was recorded and mastered with a "coloured" system in the first place, a headphone measuring "flat" will be considered non-neutral from the original source.
