When you let the general manager of the only Grado distributor in the country listen to the Audez'e LCD-3 and laugh at his reaction to how awesome they sound.

That had to be quite a departure from the usual Grado sound signature for him. Bright and colored versus warmish neutral and uncolored.

IIRC, there is no audible difference between those two.
... You missed the point of that, OFC there's no differance, 


You know you an audiophile when you realize, lossess is maybe 10% better than lossy [if your rig can let you hear it] and 96/24 is only about 5% better then 16/44.1  and that's only if you can trick your brain into hearing it ;3
 
Hence is why your "trick" your self to thinking there is :D, and in reality while technically there isn't a differance... the sheer joy of playing a 96/24 lossless song just brings me so much joy! An that extra "joy" makes the music more enjoyable... because I'm an AUDIOPHILE [get the joke xD] 
 
Your know your an audiophile when you waste time explaining for failed Audiophile jokes to other Audiophiles <3

So Head-Fi, please help me determine which headphones are on my shower curtain.


 
I think they look pretty close to these ones by Pioneer:

Or the artist's way of not getting sued.

Good on you for taking it, and thanks for posting a pretty good how-to.
Your 7/10 is actually a statistical fail. Next time try to do 15 iterations - the more you do, the better the results bear out. Ideally, to prove you weren't guessing, you need to get under 5% (pretty hard to do when you get 15 iterations - for most of us impossible at aac256 which is pretty much transparent).
Also - try it with the "hide results" box checked. Then its a true blind.
Yeah I would have done more than 10, but the video was getting kind of long, and as boring as it is I don't think very many people would care. I would have also checked the "hide your results" box, but the video was meant to demonstrate what the ABX test is.
also, blind tests are illegal to speak of here >.>

I don't buy into the whole "HD" music stuff either. It certainly sounds good, but how much better is it to your ears than 16/44.1?
^ so maybe you're a die-hard audiophile if you do believe in that stuff. XD

When it's not even 1 month since I bought my first can and I'm now contemplating a new can 10x the price while on a non-existent budget.

When your local audio store sells you aftermarket cables they don't offer anyone else.

When you wear t-shirts with a Telefunken 12AX7 at the back.
