    when you wish you have perfect vision so you can ID headphones correctly from 50 meters away

    How the hell? Anyone could tell the difference between those, the SR-325i is one of the harshest, brightest headphones there is, and the solo is the exact opposite =_____=

    This place is definitely not an audiophile site.

    Far too much talk of EQ and people needing more and more volume and bass

    I think head-fi has created a new type of customer with very different priorities that audio companies don't seem to understand.
    It reminds me of 2 channel hi-fi in the 70s , all about value, tweaking , and a bit of the pioneer spirit

    To an old git like me it's very refreshing

    Yeah, the site does not always seem to be about how you can improve the art of music, which audiophilia is to me

    I'd agree with this. Very well put.

    Well I think an EQ can be useful for minor tweaking, I tend to avoid it. I don't even know how it works in terms of what the audio source does...

    Software based equalizers dynamically process the sound, which is why they can be either very good or very, VERY bad.
     
    Hardware-based equalizers... I have no ******* clue. All I know is a "transparent" hardware EQ is hard to come by and very expensive.
     
    I use EQing to fix frequency spikes, and sometimes to even out the sound of a vintage set.

    When thinking about buying a headphone, it doesn't look too appealing to you aesthetically, but when you actually receive it you start to absolutely love its looks.
     
    Happened with my DT1350s and now my SA3000s. <3

    When people ask wut headphones you are wearing and the guy next to u says a cheap version of beats. Then they both go in awe that my whole rig is worth $700 hahaha (including $300 iPod so more like $400)
