I find this thread very humane and full of interest. Nice people. I ascribe this to the beneficient effect of listening to music with Grado headphones. I propose a new UN program dedicated to the purchase and distribution of Grados to areas of conflict and to persons of violent or ignorant demeanour. It would be important to get the music right, though, as well as the headphone model. The leader of N. Korea, now, he would be a challenge...
I think that Grado fans understand that the enjoyment of our hobby rests on A LOT more than having a good pair of headphones, or even, a good sound system.
You mention the word ''demeanour''. I think that good, or bad, demeanour, can make, or break, a listening session.
I believe that the mood we're in, before a listening session, can determine the degree of satisfaction we get from our said, listening session. If we're sad, angry, or stressed, the odds are we won't enjoy ourselves as much as we would if we were happy and relaxed.
Another factor is, bias. for example, all the negative comments regarding the RS1e's lack of treble extension, and overall exitement compared to the previous RS1(i) models. Of course, this can have a negative biased effect against the RS1e. The human brain can be very powerful, and I'm sure that you're familiar with the term auto suggestion.
Oh!, I almost forgot, being exposed to loud noise, or even loud music, for a few hours, can play havoc with our hearing and can skew the way we hear certain frequecys, putting a damper on our listening session.
Alright, that's enough rabling for tonight!.
