101JaxonHTue 7th Sep 2021 @Wavey84 You really like those Beyer Dynamics, huh. It's hard to know how much you'll like headphones until you try em. Guess that's why some ppl buy so many. Speaking of which, I got 4 new pairs in the last week alone. But it feels like each one has its distinct purpose... 560S: HiFi reference headphones 38X: go-to gaming headset 800S: high end gaming headphones Clear MG: high end music headphones Guess it's time to sell all the SteelSeries. I still have an itch to know what the Hifiman Arya sound like with those planar magnetics. Basically the 800S, Clears and Arya are the big 3 high end $1500 headphones. Having 2 out of 3 just feels so... incomplete lol. But those large oval earpads on the Arya seem like they extend to your jawbone. Not sure how to feel about that. You get one life. I've been living like a cheap grinch for the last 15 years, never spending money on anything besides games. Getting close to 40 yrs old, working day in day out year after year. No fancy car or boat or any of that. I made like $80k investing in crypto recently and hadn't spent one cent of it to date. It's high time to enjoy something nice and buy some toys. Feels good to have something new and exciting for a change. The future of hifi will certainly be wireless, with amp and dac built right into the ear cup. Once we have Bluetooth 6.0, Bluetooth 7.0 and 5G takes over. Higher bandwidths as standard. One day wired headphones will be a relic of the past. Or at least, constitute a much smaller share of the high end market.
