Truth be told, though, arguing on Youtube is like trying to tell a blind man what blue looks like. It's a pointless waste of energy, effort, bandwidth and time. People are always going to be firmly seated where they are, even if they know they are wrong. You also have to consider the fact that he/she may only have experience with Fanny Wang, Bose and a bunch of crap headphones, so for him those are the best sounding. I salute and your rather pointless attempt to lay down some knowledge, but Youtube is one of the last places you should do that. It'll accomplish nothing in the end. He/she must also not own any CD's or get every song through "youtubedownloaderbecauseI'mpoorwithbadtaste.net" if they don't know the difference (you can tell with even Bose or Fanny Wang so yeah).

When ever I get new cans , I always ask my wife to give a listen, to what I think sounds so great.
 
She will always listen and has always said, yeah that sounds nice or something to that effect.
 
I just recently got an HD800 and when I asked her to give a listen, I actually got...."wow"..."those sound incredible"

+1, mine leaves them on for 2 seconds and says "yep, sounds good", with the HD800 she said "that's amazing", and kept them on over a minute!

I can't remember if I have already posted this, but a girl went to tears when she heard some songs on my TH900. She had never heard anything better than a 20 bucks earbud of course.

My wife has never tried on any of my headphones. She walked by when I had a picture of some headphones on my screen and she said "You're obsessed with ear muffs." :xf_eek:

Just had my Mother listen to my T-Peos H-300 & Vamp Verza that I just got preceded by "I can't believe you spent $XXX on that!!!!"
 
Further proceeded by "I NEVER EVEN HEARD THAT PART BEFORE" She then commented about it still lacking bass (???) so I flipped on the Bass Boost on the Verza and she sat there like laughing in disbelief to herself.
 
Needless to say, she no longer thought it was  "complete" waste of money, ahah.

It's just some people don't appreciate sound quality as much as other stuff. Us audiophiles and headphone enthusiasts.
Some people don't need $2,000 setup's to enjoy their music. but for the audiophile's who do, may god have mercy on their wallets.

Ladies and gentlemen, here we have a poor fellow who not only spent all his money, but also sold his wallet to buy headphones.
