Heh, your long winded intro is going to make mine look short.
Well here goes. Hi, I'm Rich Yee (Eve). Or for any Chinese speakers here 谭俊彦。(Tan)
Hmm, I go to Saint Francis High School and am currently a senior struggling with those lovely college apps.
I've been doing art for around 13 years and plan on continuing the profession into college, my dream school being... *looks at my avatar.
Anyways, it's interesting how fast I've escalated into this hobby. Just last year, I was sorting an M80 going for the M100s which I returned a month later. Then the purchases started escalating. From the Frogbeats C4s to the Ocharaku Kaedes, Stax SR2050, and eventually the TH900. But I'm happy to say that I will be simplifying soon. (cough cough... they are for sale cough cough) Headphones are just not future proof enough for me in terms of practicality.
And perhaps I've noticed a limit to how far gear-fi can take my music. I've made myself at home in our resident head-fi anime club here. And although much of the music I listen to is poorly mastered, there is a beauty in it that I haven't been able to move on from. I'll probably end my Head-fi with a bang. Most likely a FitEar CIEM. Less for the aural bliss, this is probably a more of a choice to become closer to the artists I listen to, to wear what they wear. Hence, that's why I can confidently say I will purchase one without having heard one (that's my reason Warren :P).
Well anyways, nice to meet you all :).
