ARE AUDIOPHILES OVERLY SENSITIVE BY NATURE?FEELINGS AND OPINIONS?


I have been an audiophile the last 20 years for the last 5 years I have worked with Infigo Audio as my industry affiliation.  It’s been my experience in business and audio conversations that there are 2 areas that are interesting. When giving opinions many audiophiles try to come off smarter than the people they are talking to. Also in conflict resolution if you have disagreements they are more willing to go to extremes. Has anyone else experienced this.  Some seem like they can tell you what to do? How to post etc. which to me is crazy. Most of us are 30, 40, 50, 60,70 plus.  Thoughts everyone?

@jacobsdad2000 i 100% agree with you. I’m not a measurements freak. You can have great measurements and a system that sounds like crap.I have people telling me that it must measure this and that. Then I have people telling me I’m not hearing differences that I hear that it’s just confirmation bias. Whatever! 

@roxy54 yup I’m overly sensitive about folks telling other folks what they are hearing and not hearing.  That people who spend a lot of money on gear are idiots that know nothing about audio.  That it has to measure this and that. That I can’t post in CAPS! That I have to put industry affiliations down when I’m not even discussing the gear or the brand. That the only people who know audio are the guys that are telling others in the end that they are a bunch of suckers.  Yup I’m overly sensitive to that.  

@calvinj 

You have the right to feel that way, and I share your distaste for most of those things. As far as using all caps, I think that is silly and improper. Why do you do it?

@roxy54 actually I do it to make the point. We do things that others don’t agree with and that’s ok
