    You know you're an audiophile when... you're having this whole vinyl argument. ;P

    On another note, if you're doing any tuning on an equalizer and know what you're doing.... you're an audiophile.

    I wouldn't go that far.

    Tubes definitely sound different. There IS some THD but not too bad, so as far as which is better depends on your preferences and of course on the headphone as well. Piezos and orthos for example pair very well with amps with a high output impedance, which (pure) tube amps will deliver. I tried my SE-700s out of my grandma's old tube receiver (which she has yet to let me have :<) and they sounded absolutely AMAZING. It was completely unlike anything i've ever heard.

    You buy your girlfriend some customs, just because you can't stand it seeing her with some 50 bucks universals.

    Considering their are now customs like Cosmic Ears making cheap CIEM's, that's in the realm of a fairly nice gift. What did you get the girl?

    when you're more afraid of losing your hearing than going blind or becoming paralyzed...
     
    I don't know what I'd do without my ears.

    You know you're an audiophile when you're auditioning headphones and making the weirdest expressions because they're sibilant.

    I shudder everytime I think about my GF using iBuds >,<
    It gets worse when she complains about not being able to hear me over skype because of her earbuds.

    She loves the bass and clarity of my old Triple.Fi10, so i thought i'd buy her some new ones and let them reshell from UM because she needs the awesome fit of customs for sports :)
    So much better than seeing her with cheap earbuds rly

    You know you're an audiophile when you dumpster dive for a repairable rig and attempt to fix it and make it work for you and you're out of money because of your expensive wife/girlfriend shopping for some *COUGH barfs by COUGH COUGH you know COUGH the rest COUGH COUGH* because they look good for her and you decide throw her "barfs by you know the rest" in the trash where they belong. :)
