YKYAAW You can simulate being married by trying to critical listen to Linn Records on your Open Backs while playing BBC Radio 4 Woman's Hour aloud in the same room...

YKYAAW you spend three weeks over the christmas period thinking at least 12 hours a day about cabling for one run of RCA line, one run of coaxial digital, two runs of optical digital, and enough wire to wire 2 speakers, less than one metre from the amp

 

YKYAAW you pause "Apache" on your brand new that morning headphones so you can concentrate on posting about the trials and tribulations of being obsessed with audio on Head-Fi forums.

YKYAAW you are hearing creepy noises from downstairs anyone else is not.

YKYAAW you actually calculate how much less you should spend on food in order to afford a new amp to pair with that new headphone that you think you will own 1 year down the road!

My colleague in the OR and I use this benchmark:  YKYAA if your home system cost (not is worth) more than your car(s).  Sorry if this one has been previously posted.

Guilty as charged. More than any car i have ever owned for myself (bought a few more expensive to sell over the years) and that's just my headphones LOL

You know you're an audiophile when you critic your friends' car stereos

Yeah, that was funneh when I was sitting the other day in my friends '07 e60 550i bimmer quite loaded with optional extras - listening to that stereo and couldn't NOT notice there was much less details even when compared to my - back then - Sennheiser HD465 crappy headphones. Now what you supposed to say about the system in a 100k car, huh?!? "Yeah, don't like it, bro, come listen to me Golf!" :D. To be fair to the car, the system was just a quite an average Business, not top of the line L7. And pretty good for a car also, you just can't drive around w/ your headphones on :)

You know you're an audiophile when you keep giving mean stares at people wearing beats headphones.

YKYAAW you are busy ordering a pair of headphones and the box for the most recently acquired pair is still sitting on the kitchen table.

YKUAAW you make your friend buy much more expensive headphones/speakers then what he was planning.

YKYAAW you think it is reasonable to spend £20/$30+ on a Sennheiser brand CD which only contains 5 songs.

You know you're an audiophile when you see a cable priced at $150 and think "that's not too bad!"

You know you're an audiophile when you remove the back of your TV just to check out the "build quality" and when you have headfi.org as your homepage.smily_headphones1.gif
