You Know You're an Audiophile When.. Version 2! - Page 37

post #541 of 5369
YKYAAW all your friends ask for advice on cheap headphones. So far I've set two people up with HD428s, on person with a M50, another ALMOST bought Klipsch X10s, and another bought Q350s.

When there's a kid in your spanish class (thank God it's over) who has the name Sam Heiser. Every time you hear his name you instantly think of this certain Company that makes audio equipment.

When you friend has a camera bag by the brand of Stienzieser and you wonder if they are related anyhow...

Hen you accurately read both of those as a certain German based audio company, well known not only for their expertise in the audiophile community, but in the area of comminication, for over 60 years

When you forget you're wearing headphones and wonder why the k-mart cashier's voice sounds muffled

YKYAAW You spend more time picking out which headphones to use than you do picking your clothes.

YKYAAW somebody asks you about headphones and you act like you don't know anything because you don't want to be judged by your peers.

OMG. You too? I simple don't know what to say if a non audiophile asks me to compare my ciem with a sub $100 iem they own.

You know you're an audiophile when people ask you via Facebook for headphone recommendations.

I've had to seriously consider doing that on a few occasions. I've gushed on about my gear a few times, only to realize a few beats too late that everybody is awkwardly staring. I actually clear it away now so it's out of sight and thus never comes up. There's just no good way to explain to a non-headphile why that big, "old-fashioned" hunk of metal, plastic, and padding cost me $250. And say what? You can't even listen to it on your smartphone*, and it doesn't block out sound? Why didn't you just get the Beats? They're the best, I heard.

 

I've got it all worked out if anybody ever says this last one to me. I'll just smile knowingly, shake my head a bit, and say, "Yeah, what's wrong with me? You're right. I've been a bloody fool."

 

*Which I don't have

It takes a true man to be able to abstain from lashing out his resentment towards something like Beats. Kudos to you.

Filthy casual :"Hey what did you say you needed $700 for?"

 

Me: "For a headphone amp and digital to analog converter"

 

Filthy casual: "Why, so it can be louder?"

 

most annoying thing ever.
