Why do you people spend hundreds of dollars on headphones - Page 9

post #121 of 134

Disagree. I have the choice to spend the money I spend on headphones on other things--cameras, car accessories, whatever--but I don't because I'm not interested in those things. I am interested in hearing at home a sound something like I hear in the concert hall, and thus I spend money on headphones. Having the means only gives you the ability to spend; it doesn't determine on what you'll spend.

Why spend money at all? Or why spend more money than you ralistically should or need?? No matter how much money you earn. 

 

What is very interesting reading this forum's threads is that many young people (I have seen 14-year-olds) spend huge amounts of money on headphones. I really don't want to dig into the question "Where can a teenager earn so much money to buy such expensive stuff?". One thing is obvious though. It is not only the love for the music that makes people invest in headphones (or any other "cool" stuff). It is also the sheer consumerism and money-spending-culture of our time that drives many people. We are just a part of a big engine, a big machinery called free market economy.

Unless they get a nice set of headphones as a birthday gift, or something..

(Then come onto the head-fi forums and argue with everyone about how good they are)

this is like asking why you spend so much money on X product in different niche enthusiast forums ..  I'm sure the OP is a troll because he has only 2 posts and created this thread 3 weeks, 4 days ago (same day he created his head-fi account) and Last Online: 3 weeks, 3 days ago.... and already disappeared...

Don't feed the troll then

post #133 of 134

Yeah- I know we shouldn't feed the troll.  But I do think it is a worthwhile conversation to have.  If nothing else, I have read the point-of-view of some people I otherwise would not have had contact with.

 

But still: troll feeding is bad frown.gif
