Default Is there anything more satisfying than new headphones?

Oh I just had my second round of audio elation. My Audio Technica ATH-M50s just came in the mail! Just like I did about 9 months ago with my Panasonic RP-HJE900s, I threw em on right away and had aural sex with Gorillaz' Feel Good, Inc.

Nothing better than throwin' on a new pair of headphones and pumpin' your favorite jams

New headphones FTW (as well as new a new DAP), but I still have to agree w/WG and TDS. There are other things more satisfying

Actually, one thing that I can think of as better is the good, new headphones at a steal of a (fair) deal.

I wouldn't go quite that far.....there's a couple things that are better. It is a great experience though.

A new nice set of speakers are much more satisfying than new headphones.

I have much more use for headphones, though. Besides, I'm covered for speakers with my Kicker dock.

roflmao! You know me oh so well.

Indeed, new headphones are awesome. But to put things in perspective:

If I ever found myself marooned on a deserted island and I had to choose between my Panas or Gisele B., guess which one I would choose...

Congrats stein and enjoy!

Ah, but even if they aren't as high maintenance, you can't neglect your headphones.
