    You know you're an audiophile when you know what heaphones you need for a certain genre of music.
    Or you have a source for a certain type of sound.

    When you search for headphones on websites by going: "Price: High to Low"
  3. mechgamer123
    This! I've done this in a few of my classes actually, one to show another head-fi'er and the other to listen to IEMs... Everyone says "hey what's that, it looks really cool!"
    I tell them it's amp, make the usual speech like you. The last person I talked to was the funniest though. "does it work?"

    When it interferes with work and family. When you can only be around others who are too. When it jeopardizes your work or schooling. If you or a loved one is an audiophile, they need help. And they can get it here, at Head-Fi, which will help them move on with their life. There is still hope.

    Oh here's another one...
    When I told my friends I didn't like halo4, they said it was probably the soundtrack or the music.
    I said "although the music is bad, that's not why I dislike the game,"
    all he said is: "whatever, audiophile..."
  6. takato14
    Halo 4 is a failure. It's the absolute pinnacle of the "graphics are the only thing that matters" ruse.
    Back to music! You know you're an audiophile (or just weird) when you talk to your new headphones and tell them how good they are ._.
  7. mechgamer123
    Yes! It also sounds like the sound effects are also encoded in 160kbps mp3...
    I guess that qualifies as a "you know you're an audiophile when..." post too!

    ...when you treat headphones or other audio gear as your best friend. XD

    you know you're an audiophile when your friend thinks that you are seriously out of your mind and wasting your money when you already have a HD558 but end up buying an MS-1 a few months later, and you have to frantically try and explain to them that its is worth it because it is like different flavors of an icecream, and also admit that an eq cannot make a sennheiser sound as exciting and fast paced as an alessandro

    also i have never played Halo 4 before, what's the bad parts of the game? gameplay,story,others?just curious

    I actually heard that Halo 4 is a mighty good game. 87/100 on Metacritic, 9.8/10 on IGN, etc. Sure I don't like some games, but that doesn't mean it's a bad game. Obviously Halo 4 must be doing something right if nearly every major reviewer gives it a 87%+ approval rating.
    As for the soundtrack, I heard it's pretty decent as well. I'm not a fan of soundrack music in general, but Halo 1 definitely had a great soundtrack (that was what, 10 years ago?).
  11. mechgamer123
    I like halo's soundtracks in general, but this one wasn't as good in quantity or quality compared to previous games.
    Also, look at user reviews right now, 5.7 on meta critic. Just because a reviewer likes it doesn't mean people will, and vice versa.
  12. takato14
    The soundtrack is absolutely ATROCIOUS, especially in comparison to the rest of the series.
    The sound effects are quite bad too.
    The storyline is bloated and full of controversy. You have to go around searching every nook and cranny of the game to get the full storyline and even then it's not worth it.
    Gameplay is virtually identical to Reach, and the multiplayer is exactly the same. The weapons are worse tbh. Two of them are absolutely useless.
    The graphics are absolutely stunning, but its such a bad game that it's not worth it. Plus, they overuse frame-buffer effects a lot and its just too much. I don't need the screen to flash and make a huge impact wave every ******* time I hit an enemy with a bullet.
  13. mechgamer123
    I completely agree!
    Problem is that if you post a negative review anywhere you get flamed SO bad..o

    LOL wow my friend was telling me how amazing the sound was in halo 4 today too..... what an idiot, Ive never played halo but this made me laugh.
  15. miceblue

    Wait What. You're totally right!
    SMH. It looks like this will be another "Diablo III". High "professional" reviews, poor user reviews. Wow, OK so maybe Halo 4 really is an epic fail after all. >.>
