Yep, Head-fiers are a pretty "chill" crowd. I love it here Sittin here with some Oscar Peterson tunes (thanks to head-fi for the recommendations), I'm thinking about headphones I see everyday. I promise, here at the university of North Texas, 1 in 50 have an ipod, that's a lot IMHO. No kidding. I think there's 1 or 2 at least in each of my class, and that's just people who are wearing them coming in to class. If I had money for a good portable MP3 player, I'd go portable-audiophile too ... but that would mean new 'phones too though, as these A500's are quite the "head"full, haha. EDIT: Almost double posted, got the 'unspecified thread' error after posting... decided to see if it went through before I hit back and post again... Growing pains?
