I assume that I have taken headphone world into a serious world already even though I have just spent around $500 (headphones, amp, etc.) since I joined this community. But I am happy with the money I've spent as a complement to headfi.

Fellow headfiers, at this time, how much money have you spent to show that you are really serious on headphones?

In the month I've been here, $300 or so. It's not much but at this point I'm still in my audiophile infancy and $200+ on headphones is a lot for me. Hopefully, I can stay happy with my D2000's for a while.

Well, take a look at my sig. I got the AD700 when I joined, stopped posting until about October, that is when I started researching and posting again. I racked up about 1,400 posts in 4 months

I've spent quite a lot more than I should have, but I generally sell headphones that I'm not satisfied with, so my costs have been remotely reasonable (at least considering the number of phones I've been through...)

I started collecting at about the same time you joined head-fi (which is when I started posting). I consider myself to have a normal amount of gear, not too much, nor too little. I still have MANY things I want to get and try. Don't you still want to try AKG K701, HD600, HD650, DT880, PRO 750, PRO 900 etc? Or have you already tried the majority of those?

On my WTB list still lays things like a Little Dot DAC_I, Lavry DA11, Little Dot MKVII(+), Little Dot CDP_I (just want a transport) and a few more. On my want to try list, well, there are too many things to even list

I'm completely satisfied with my AD900. I don't see any point of spending any money on an amp or better phones because i can't imagine the music i listen to would sound any better.

TBH, i don't think you need to spend much money at all. I find KSC-75's and a cheap Meizu M6 80% as satisfying as my AD900's...
