.., but I'd value posts by an EE or audio engineer, with a post count of 12, 100x more than the post of a 15 year old who hangs out all day in the video game forum and the "what I'm listening to right now" thread, posting thousands of youtube links and/or about how great his $50 skullcandy buds sound. That the latter is a "supremus" bums me out.
(Edit to correct typo)
I'm an electrical engineer (with a Ph.D.), written a textbook on signal processing, served as President of the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) Signal Processing Society, elected a Fellow of the IEEE for work in signal processing, worked on acoustics research at Bell Labs, and I'm *still* a novice at "headphonology."
I like to think that some of my better posts, e.g., this one: http://www.head-fi.org/t/721406/how-we-rank-our-own-headphones-statistics-of-2-000-owner-rankings-compiled#post_10597847 that tells how we compare our own headphones in a way that allows others considering a particular model of headphone to know how others that already have it compare it to their own inventory, with the chance that the prospective buyer can relate to one or more of them, or my so far 10 systematic 3-way comparisons of headphones as most recently summarized here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/723136/battle-of-the-bassys-beats-pro-yamaha-pro-500-and-beats-studio-2013-compared#post_10634722 , gives me license to post some really stupidly funny stuff, like this... http://www.head-fi.org/t/709045/spank-those-celebrities-cans#post_10344094 about what we can DO about the popularity of Beats By Dr. Dre headphones, or this... http://www.head-fi.org/t/720963/ode-to-dr-7a-the-headphone-con-s-sewer#post_10588447 which is my poetic ode to a DR. other than Dre, the DR-7A, that got me started on all this.
I have so much to learn! But I do think putting my recently-ordered color-coordinated Sennheiser HD 800 and HDVD 800 into my avatar makes me look smarter already, even though they won't arrive for a few weeks, don't you?
