Also when you look back in four years time at the posts you made when you were 15 you'll cringe.

 

Yup. I joined this place when I was 14/15 and when people necro threads I posted in, I try to avoid reading what I said. 

 

Also, I likewise advise you to leave while you can. If you find something that you like, stop buying new things. I got curious and tried the HE500, and when I found flaws with even that, I've been continually trying to find what my preferred sound signature is, even within different genres. Heck, now I'm saving up for a setup consisting of an RS1 (or AD2000, wasting a lot of time here reading as much as I can about them), M100, and Q701, and I'm sure I'll still find some issues with all that. You get really picky after a while.

This might be true for some but for me I eventually found my perfect headphones and stopped buying more. 

 

On the bright side headphones don't really depreciate (unless they're FOTM) so you can usually get like 90% of the value back by reselling them, then invest that money in newer BETTER headphones.

PLEASE!! A loooong time ago (when I was around 11 or 12) I saved up some money and bought myself a pair of Sennheiser HD448s. I was so happy that I showed all my family and friends. They were all like, "why did you spend 60 bucks on ugly headphones?" I sighed with greif and just went on with my life. Soon I realised that none of my friends or family cared at all about sound. All they care about is the bass BASS BASS!!! If there is no bass in the phones then they are apparently bad! I then upgraded to the M50's when I was 13 and they didnt impress anybody (except for me)  My dads like, "oh yeah, I like the company Bose I heard they are the best so thats all im going to listen to'. My dream is just to own a pair of Sennheiser Hd800's!!!! I havent even listened to them yet. All of my headphones came from Ebay. Because there is literally NO store that sells cans. I can't even try out common headphones! The only *******ed ones I can test out is the ******** beats by dr. Dre piece of crap line and the overpriced Bose quiteconfort line.

 

           I dont even want to get started on my highschool. Oh man! What a sight! ibuds EVeRYWHere and beats by dre EveRyWherE. I once saw one guy actually wearing a pair of Sennheisers though. I wasn't close enough to get a good look at them. I also know a guy that owns a pair of cans! (can you believe that?) Its only the sony Xb500's though. You know why? BASS BASS BASS

 Well, thats all i have to say for now. Hehe Please Share,

 

TEENS UNITE!

I'm 13.  I've listened to the HD800 multiple timeswink.gif just to make you more jealous, I've listened to every high-end headphone out there(almost..)

You have a point, although I'd never give away my childhood. It's already being eaten by the future and the people around me. Slowly slipping.

Oh of course, like I said, if the OP finds something s/he really likes, stop buying new things because it's highly likely that A: You won't even like it or B: You'll find flaws with your current headphones and flaws with your new headphones and spend a lot of money trying to rectify that. I'm in the latter section. I loved my AKG K271 but when I got a pair of Turbine Pros, I realized that the AKGs were pretty thin sounding. And now here I am. But I will admit that the journey has been fun, and I've had quite a few cool experiences.

 

And yup. I've bought used for all of my headphones and I'm fairly certain if I was in a bind for cash and stuck all my stuff on eBay, I'd at the very least break even because some of the older stuff appreciates in value if they get hyped up.

Yeah. Like when I buy headphones I don't consider the money gone, I've just converted the money into something I can use. I could convert it back to money if I got into a pickle.

I never found a setup I 'really liked' before I ran into a properly amped HE500... First time I felt satisfied with the sound. Everything in this hobby is relative.
