Sometimes when talking to audiophiles I'm reminded of XKCD 915: Connoiseur. 

 

You can look it up yourself, not going to link because it is my first post.

 

Would you say that's an appropriate description?

I think this is a more appropriate description:

 

XKCD 1378: Turbine

I think so - an audiophile is simply a connoisseur in the specific area of audio. Every hobby is the same - there are always those that will take it to a nutty level.

I love being an audiophile. It makes me happy!

Yep, any interest can be taken to the extreme. When it becomes entirely about the thing itself, and not about how said thing makes you happy, that's a sign that things have gone too far.
