I lied to my wife about the price of Stax 009S headphone
My wife is the youngest of my mom in law who is 88 years old.
Recently my wife is staying with her mom to take care expecting her mom can live just one more year or so.
Thus I am having happy life playing music loud even during midnight.
My house is seated on 2 acre lot so that my neighbors does not get bothered unless windows open wide.
My wife dropped at home yesterday ( She drop once a week to clean the messy kitchen while she is away. She is an angel Ha ha).
She happened to see my new headphone of Stax 009S headphone and asked its price.
I could tell her the real value ( new price 4,500$ and I got 4 months used one for 3,200$).
I did not mean to deceive her but answered it costs me 1,500$ by chance.
Then she had listened to K-Pop using both
Stax 009S headphone driven by Carbon amplifier and Massdrop Empire Zeus IEM( I told her the real value as 1,000$ No lie here Hehe).
The source was
Cocktail Audio X30 music server feeding Chord Dave and Mscaler ( I did not tell her how much
Chord Dave and Mscaler
cost, if she find out, I may have to buy her diamond necklace)
On first few songs, she prefer
Empire Zeus IEM to
Stax 009S headphone on lively sound of the former.
But after listening few more songs, she expressed that
Stax 009S headphone sounds more natural than
Empire Zeus IEM .
Whew if I had told her that I had spent 3200$ on headphone, I may have to go out to buy her something like expensive bag or clothing.
Reality is I had also spent additional 3300$ on
KGSSHV Carbon headphone amplifier.
How many of your audiophile had lied to your wife or girlfriend about the cost of audio components?
I guess 98% from my 41 years of audio history.
