My wife of 27 years does not know the half of it. Yet !

:beerchug: and here's to her (and all the wives of addicts) never knowing the other half of it.

I once told my fiancee about 200€ pair of headphones I got; never again. And I've moved on to significantly more expensive stuff. :evil:

You and I both. My spending per item is now averaging 15-20x the purchases in my earlier days :P

Probably because of the ridiculously large chain;
Source -> *insert expensive cable-* -> DAC -> *insert expensive cable* -> Pre-Amplifier *insert expensive cable* -> Amplifier -> *insert expensive cable* -> headphone

Not to mention the amount of money we spent on music albums biggrin.gif

I actually tried a pair of Beats Mixr's yesterday just for fun. Compared to my P5's, they sounded very veiled in the midrange and had too much bass, which made everything sound muffled and congested. My mother even said the same thing.

 

I can't fathom how people pay retail price for those things and think that they are the best things ever. I really can't.

Because mids and treble don't matter, only bass!

Wait, if anything I thought the Mixrs had too much in the 5k range and a huge peak at around 10k. Were they plugged into a Beats station?

The store had all of the Beats headphones plugged into a bunch of Apple iPods. The ones I tried were plugged into an iPod Nano.
