Well maybe in the long run? Lol jk.

A calamity was about to happen that day, but decided to leave before things got really ugly... In her defense: she's pregnant and I already have a lot of headphones.

Coming back to the subject: Those who collect coins or currency don't really care about the value itself. Either card/comics collectors etc

I justify it by thinking how long I'm going to be using the thing. For example, I bought my Sennheiser HD580s for $150 6+ years ago and I still use it every day. I can't say the same thing about my other electronics like phones/computers.

Also, because they're so good at just about everything, I've never been compelled to upgrade.

I got this. 

 

Everything I have is rare vintage equipment that I have replace with silver wire. 

 

If the speakers don't appreciate in value....the silver will very_evil_smiley.gif
