"I hate music. Man, it's just a bunch of random sounds and pitches and it makes my head hurt. I'd rather listen to pink noise and test tracks, that way I just have the satisfaction of knowing how good my system is. It's so good that it makes me better than everybody else just by having it. Except, of course, the people that have better systems. They're better people than me, but one day, someday, I will have a better system than them, and then I'll be better. On that day, I will gloat, and come here to let everybody know how good I am... I also hate fun, happiness, and kittens".

||How to proper take care of headphones (suggestions are welcome)
-"First off, I am going to reiterate a point which I have made in several other articles since many of our readers are not familiar with the audiophile world when it comes to sound quality. With high end audio equipment, the value per dollar greatly decreases as you go up the cost ladder. For example, a piece of audio equipment that costs twice as much may only sound slightly better. But this is what the audiophile world is all about. People spend big bucks on audio equipment to get ultimately great sound rather than spend less and maybe settle for only great sound. And remember, good sound quality is a very personal thing. If it sounds good to you, you have accomplished your goal, (but to be on the safe side, you might just consider avoiding listening to someone else’s audiophile setup)."

Microphonics are with most headphones in some way or the other as ALL materials have microphonics -plastics-metals-woods-etc.
One thing to know about microphonics is that once you have power/sound running thru cables most if not all microphonics are nullified. teflon insulation has the most as pe insulation has the least.if you put any set of headphones on without power/sound and scratch-touch each part you'll hear how different materials resonate.the softer the material the less the microphonics.
