    No, it most certainly is not hipster. Hipsters orient the choices in their lives around what other people do just as much as the average lemming does. They just do so in a negative fashion, instead of in an affirmative one.
     
    Your taste reflects your own personal choice, irrespective of whether it's popular or not. Hipsters don't think like this. They're the equivalent of the kid that contradicts everything you say--they need somebody to make the first move so they can counter, meaning paradoxically their entire ethos is dependent upon what's trendy--they just choose to do the exact opposite. If hipsters played chess, they'd always want to play as black. [​IMG]
     
    As I think you can tell, this is a way of looking at the world that I have very little patience with. It falls under the immortal "against inspired lunacy, what can you do?" category, and I usually do the best I can to pretend that it doesn't exist. I'm too busy doing my own thing and enjoying myself to worry about what other people are doing.

    Hell, if being an audiophile is being a hipster then hipsters are damn good people.

    You know you're an audiophile when you agonize over which IEM to get the way some people agonize over which color to paint the walls.

    When you consult head-fi before your next audio purchase.

    That's just common sense (at least it should be).

    When your newest headphones impress you so much that you worry if you'll ever use your other sets again.

    When you're trying to celebrate your 100th post on Head-Fi by trying to think of something clever to say.
     
    Oh wait... NOOOO!! I made a mistake!!! This is my 100th post! NNNNOOOOOOOO! THIS IS NOT SPECIAL ENOUGH!!!!!!! FFFFFFFFFFFU!!
     
    *calms down*
     
    Anyway, for my 1000th post, I'll review a bunch of pillows, and I'll try to analyze if the material or the consistency of a pillow whether or not have an impact on soundstage, brightness and bass impact. This should provide some valuable insight for those who listen to headphone in bed.

    I have kissed my headphones before. I have also given them compliments on how well they performed after taking them off for the night. I have even given one pair a hug. 
     
    Please tell me I'm not just weird and others have done things like this >__________________________>

    Nope. At least, not to such extent. Although, I'd probably stab to death with a spoon anyone who'd dare touch my headphones.

    well i don't listen to mainstream music, use ibuds, use apple or samsung for that matter, or use beats. i assemble my own computer thus saving me about 40% and like anthro art over anime. 
    well everyone's different, its right to express yourself through your choices and preferences and not let some people up top tell you what you should choose

    Yeah...um...I've never done that before. I did recently pick my DT880 up and shout "What do you want from me?!" at it in a joking manner, but that was because at that point it was the third night in a row I'd been compelled to listen for hours on end when I should have been sleeping.
     
    I swear, it's like there's aliens up there somewhere and they've introduced headphones to us as mind control devices, and they're laughing their big green butts off at us as we waste hour after hour listening and comparing and spending our hard earned cash.
