I think it's funny, but not illogical. To me, I recognize the fact that spending $400 on headphones is kinda silly, not to mention the $1800 I plunked into the audio system in my car. I don't look at these as rational choices. They ARE, however, MY choices. I'm happy to have what I have and I don't regret it all, and when people ask why I spend what I do?
"Why make the money if ya can't enjoy spendin' it?"
I feel some satisfaction in seeing people compliment my headphones or say they sound great, but I'm not such an arrogant knob that I think I'm superior to them for how they choose to spend THEIR money versus what I do with MINE. Remember that to THEM you're a weirdo who tosses money away on headphones instead of going out and having fun.
Perspective, folks, perspective...
