so there is better chances of finding audiophile women.

 

I'm trying to find a woman who is an audiophile, a gamer, and an anime fan. ...Oh wait, I actually do know a few. Ha!

Hifi is a hobby which can enhance the listening experience and the enjoyment of music to some degree. I don't see that as a bad thing persae i.e. in achieving an appreciably better sound over mainstream products. However there is a point at which the means become an end rather than enjoying music. At that point I agree about it being ridiculous, and it's probably best that women don't get into that part of it unless it is their job. I don't think all male hifi enthusiasts are audiophiles either. It's probably just a subset with the extra cash (or being foolish) that are chasing that extra 2-5%  in sound quality.

Some of us gladly spend large amounts of money to get the gear to be able to experience recordings we enjoy in higher quality, or whatever particular qualities of sound we are looking for.

I only meet 4 to 5 of them, whish could find more. What would fashinate me seing a woman with such a hobby is that
its so uncomon. I barely see it. True they are all unique, but at the same time so the same. :/

My Gf was in the US recently so i joined the massdrop k7xx drop and shipped it to her.
She checked them out and was super surprised on the sound quality and how awesomely crips they were.
To be fair, she is usdd to apple earpods and ber crappy notebook speakers.

This doesnt make her an Audiophile or anything and she doesnt want to try any of my other headphones but at least she saw *or heard* a difference wink.gif

But i honestly don't even like the k7xx a lot lol.
