Maybe, but in the long run it is much more likely a purchase will go well if well informed . That said, there is only so much you can really glean from reseach on audio related components. So much is subjective, overblown, and in reality, downright false information that the only true way to make an informed decision is through direct listening.

Well, then you are limited only by the audio processing portion of your brain as well as your ear structure, too bad most people can't even tell the difference between bose, and a good hifi system if it bit them in the face.

Ignorance is bliss in this case. The alternative costs too much for most .

Mind if I join?

I have some Shure SRH840s for use at the PC when I need to keep things quiet, and some Sennheiser IE8s for my portable .
