Put the age aside, you are lucky!!! EXTREMLY, lucky!

I feel even older. 20 (just turned a few days ago tbh)

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go blow some money on things I don't need to make me feel younger.

Anyways, I let my mom listen to some MJ. I picked thriller, in flac 24/96, admittedly through my laptop. She loved it, though she hates MJ.

Now, she'll never be able to go back to cheap **** muahahahahahaha

I love Nisekoi! The faces characters make are just so priceless! I also know how your mom feels! Music that didn't excite me that much when I was listening on low-fi suddenly seemed to gain new life when I upgraded my audio for the first time. I'm proud to say that my audiophilia helps me enjoy my music like never before! 

 

Back on topic: After my brother's old pair of headphones broke while studying abroad in Singapore, I successfully nudged him to buy a better pair. I didn't point out any particular models for him, so I was pleasantly surprised when he managed to pick out the Shure SE215 LTD on his own (an IEM I've always wanted myself). He claimed it was the best he could afford, but I think the Jaben store nudged him to Shure as well.

 

One more week until he comes home for winter break! I can't wait to "borrow" his Shures for a test run. :biggrin:

I leant my HE500s to a mate who owns the M50s, UE600s and XBA3. He complained to me that I've now made all his other cans sound muddy and unclear.

That's how I felt after I heard HD800s for the first time and compared them to my HD600s.... And then I listened to some dubstep/electronic music and badly mastered hip hop and was happy with them again because I know how much worse the "lets only release this album for download at 192kbps" would sound through the HD800s

I actually like this. It will work against me in my senior year of high school but I like socializing with people older than me. A majority of my friends are all older than me and I get along better with them than I do people in my grade (that and a lot of them share the same interests as me). Probably the most obvious example of this is the enormous thread I have.

This phenomena you're describing is typically known as adolescence.

50 is the new 30 or was that 40.

Good fun. Something like that, 50 is the new 30. A common complaint of the women and of the parents and of the concerned government bureaucrats is that these days men at 30 are still behaving like adolescents and that they finally became adults around the young age of 50.

Too bad that I now have to replace the tubes in my T1, and risk killing myself at eighteen with high voltage doing so, all in the name of audio nirvana wink.gif  

Why would you replace the tubes with the unit plugged in or powered on?

My friend just randomly picked up my Annie which is beside me. He twist and band it and still can't get it to sit on his head T.T he didn't try it at the end.

ALAC tom tom club, genius of love and money for nothing by dire straits. The quality of those two tracks paired with the grado 325 was life changing for him. You could see it on his face , I'll never forget his expression.

You're driving a car with headphones on?

 Capacitors may retain a charge long after power is removed from a circuit [...]

 

And if that wasn't enough danger in itself;
