You also become picky of the resulting sound in a way that's impossible if you wrre forced to live with whatever was given you. Most people find it easier to have their sound cooked and readied for them by a handful of rich manufacturers
, but from what I heard going to head-fi meets and the plentiful headphone shops in Hong Kong, I'm being better served with the sound from my $80 Ety MC3 and $50 Somic MH463 exquisitely tuned for my own ears for 99% of my music than most any phones I heard at any price without tuning.
I can imagine all those mean an rich manufacturers coming at night to take the money from you student allowance...boooooouuuuhhh. I love this vision, so realistic, multi layered an complex.
Well I guess for those of us who do not necessarily have time to spend days in their parents basement to read graphs and eq their music, but want to actually do a CRAZY thing: buy a pair of iems and listen to music, their is always the possibility of giving money to rich manufacturers. What stupid victims of capitalism we are.
Ok now could you guys just quit it, it's not funny anymore.
