You know your an Audiophile when you discover that your first real headphone 8 years ago was an OPEN BACK :O

 

I never knew my old Koss TD 75's where an open back... and they didn't sound to bad actually! A little Vshapped, but they had very tactile deep bass, and some what thin vocals. Still not a bad first can :O it kinda sounded like an HE 400 but not ANY where near as good [but that sound signiture] 

 

Pretty cool huh :D I was DESTINED to find the Dt 880 it seems xD

YKYAA when you get annoyed when you have to justify having a pair of HD 25 Aluminiums (especially the price) to non-audiophiles. YKYAA when you're scared of telling them that you're going to buy a pair of HD 600/650s later on.

Damn that just happened to me I thought I was going to have a mental breakdown.  Pulled the tonearm cartridge clips off by accident.

I soldered the clips back on, which was a real miracle since I have never soldered before.  The TT with the new upgraded cartridge has never sounded better.  The Great Audio God smiled on me that day.

Plus the Radio Shack guy told me not to waste my money on the $12 solder iron and recommended the $10 one.

How much do they cost? $2,000?

 

The audiophile taste. Very crisp.

That got a chuckle. +1.

 

I'm sure we've all seen or heard of the Lays Stax Earspeaker reference by now.

YKYAA if you can recognize real "gems" in cheap thrift stores. I picked up a Fuze v2 for $28 today. I also tried to buy a unmodded HD580 from a local vinyl store, but the failed to do so...

Congrats on the Fuze purchase. That's a steal of a deal you got!

Thanks! That thrift shop also had a ipod 5.5 for less than $70. A sketchy place, but they sell some rare audio stuffs(and the owner doesn't know how valuable they are).

YKYAA when you walk into an Apple shop... Not to buy iPhone...nor iPod or iPad. It's to test AudioEngine A5+. Sound pretty good! Still can't justify the instrumental separation though

Or to test momentums,amperiors, and other non beats stuff. But eventually try them on anyway to laugh at them.
