well i just spent a load of cash...not sure if i'm eligible to post in here ^^;
i started with a hand me down Technics SL-XP350 with Sony neckband headphones then bought a Sony D455 CDP and bought a hell lot more headphones/earphones. some of the more memorable ones would be the Pro.2 PH1000 (eggo look alike except gold), Panasonic hje50, Sony ex71sl and the best of the lot the Grado SR60s. I didn't have the money to buy the iPod at that time so i skipped it all together until...
my aunt gave me her old 3rd gen iPod. Then the craze started. I bought an Ultimate Ears Super.Fi 5 Pro then bought the Xtra X1 headphone amp with default IC. Within the week i sold the Xtra X1 away, ordered a Portaphile V2^2 Maxxed. Bought a better cable from a local DIYer. I then started to buy cables and experiment getting different sounds myself. Also built a cMoy while waiting. Then my Portaphile came. Still not satisfied with the sound i searched for a 4th gen iPod and sent it to Vinnie. Bought a Ultimate Ears Super.Fi EB. Got my iMod back recently with an iTank and DIYed a Mini3 and my own home brewed cable (Silver n Gold costs a bomb...). And just when i thought i can save up for customs...G.A.S kicks in and i bought a Warwick 5 string corvette basic bass guitar ><
Hope i pass the 'curse-of-head-fi' club test
