Audiophile

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
What does it mean to be an audiophile? How do you know if you are one? Do you have to be certified? Do you have to spend your entire life savings to be considered one? I really need help I'm looking for a pair of iems that can support all ranges of music from hip hop/ rap to jazz classic rock rnb opera, well I don't listen to opera but you get the point I don't want to be limited. My budget is $100. I live in Michigan I'd rather go to a local store than buy online. What do you think about the skullcandy inkd 2.0? I'm sry about beating a little off topic

Also I'm going for a ampless which i think means I don't need to plug my headphones into an amp to enjoy my music

By dictionary definition, "Audiophile" means people who occasionally, if not frequently, listens to music without doing anything else. They listen to music, for the music, not just for accompanying them to multitask.

 

So does one need to spend a fortune on audio gear to be an audiophile? According to the dictionary definition, no. But it seems that we live in a world where most people thinks one would have to spend a fortune on proper audiophile gear to be considered an audiophile.

Also I thought that Audiophile meant people who were interested in audio in general, not just music. BTW, if you're looking for some IEMS for $100, I think the Klipsch S4 are well recommended, although I haven't heard them. I use the Yamaha EPH 100, although this might be out of your budget.

Also I wouldn't mention Skullcandy around these parts.

Being a real audiophile is a curse. It's a super expensive hobby and they are never satisfied:)
