Seriously though, it is a lot (at least by my standards). I just calculated it and its roughly $2250 including the stuff i sold. If i would subtract the stuff i no longer have i would probably be $1800 broke.
I calculated everything and I'm down to $1075 in payment. Thats a good start for a beginner right? but if I add the $15 shoe rack to hold everything its $1100. I put everything I bought in my signature.
For me... Sennheiser HD650 $369 NAD Viso HP50 $299 Q701 $123 HD7 DJ $229 V-Moda XS $199 Shure SE215 $99 Koss PortaPro $50 Koss TBSE $50
Schiit Asgard 2 $249 Modi $99 Xonar DG $25 Sennheiser HD558 $139 - sold for $79 Sony MDR-V6 $79 - sold for $60
SHE9000 - $30
SHE3582 - $7 $2046 in a span of 4 years.
$1219 over about a year (excluding S&H)...oops? I suppose I probably won't be spending much more for a while. I really like my wife's 558, and the leakage isn't bad, so I might pick up another pair of those for work. I think my main plan is to save up for something in the really really nice category, like the HD800. That should keep me from spending too much on headphones...right?

Probably averages about ~ $2500 - $3000 a month for the last ten years. Most of that went towards my music library. Perhaps 30% for equipment. Less and less these days though. Not much to add, harder and harder to find things I don't have.
