totally respect their own hobbies, and at the same time, i am kinda glad that they dont know too much than just how it looks, otherwise they would know how much i am paying for each iem/cm/headphone/cable and get even one way or another

Well, I've found it impossible to explain to any woman sound quality and the difference you get with better equipment. Even to women who have professional music education. They might use customs on stage but if you ask them how they sound in comparison to your gear or why did they choose this particular brand, they just say they like the fit and isolation. It's weird. Some of them state they hear some of what I'm describing them but don't think it's such big a difference. I think it might have something to do with how since the dawn of time males were mainly hunters and their hearing evolved more than the women's to make them able to hear everything and tell the difference between even the quietest noises or something.

Anyway, I think this thread got sidetracked quite a bit with all the gender and spousal discussions.

Or they don't give a crap. My gf can hear most of what I describe just from a cursory listen but would rather not sit there and do so. The disconnect starts when I use words without exactly explaining what I mean. Words she's never heard before to describe sound and would rather just do something else than listen to an audio dictionary. Or when I try to make her care more than she would like.

To assume that men have some evolved state of being able to hear and describe sound is borderline ridiculous. It does a disservice to women trying to get into the hobby.

To get back on topic:

Looking forward hearing a Noble offering sometime soon.

I'm still hoping to see new edition of good old Tzar series. Soren doesn't sell Tzar 350 to me, so maybe Noble can remake them with even finer tuning :rolleyes:

I may not use them all the time, but the Tzar's won't be sold! When it comes to analysing the rest of the audio chain, they are indispensable, they cut through anything. Including your eardrums, if you feed them poor recordings and/or a bad source ;)

*sigh* Okay, don't sell, I am sure(!) Dr. Moulton will come up with even better design than Tzar 350 while keeping the extreme levels of clarity and revealing nature :happy_face1:

I've been around these forums long enough to know that The Wizard always has something up his sleeve...

Probably his arms.

Actually there's strong scientific evidence women have a more refined/better sense of hearing than men (especially for higher pitched sounds).  They generally have a superior sense of smell as well.  The former doesn't seem to translate into greater interest in quality audio products.
