Just wondering how other people got started on (dragged into) this wallet destroying hobby!
For myself; it was when I bought a pair of ADDIEMs on a trip to America (2010) as they were comparatively cheap (exchange rate).
After I had used them until their cable fell apart, I thought there must be a way to prevent that and discovered IEMs with detachable cables, this brought me onto the TF10 Pros (now sadly lost), which in turn led me to their 'successor' the UE900 and from there onto CIEMs...
Now I am acquiring a pair of HD800s in a couple of weeks time and I can see it just going downhill from here, probably with a new amp and pair of Audeze.
So, what's your story and how, (if at all possible) do you end up stopping?
Also, do you think it's 'cheaper' to say "I'll live with something ok for now" and then save up for the TOTL gear instead of buying something new every couple of months?
P.S. I couldn't find a similar thread more recent than two years ago, so thought I should open a new one!
