I purchased a nice pair of headphones the other day on line. They shipped to our house yesterday and I am stunned by what I can now hear. It is almost like when I was thirteen and got my first pair of glasses and could actually see clearly for the first time. I listened to some of my favorite music and was hearing things that I had never heard before. I heard the various instruments go from one ear to the other. I could hear details and nuance that may have been completely lost otherwise.
I am not the kind of guy that typically gets into a lot of gear so spending just under a $100 for a pair of headphones felt pretty extravagant. What I have are a pair of Red Wave Numark headphones that are often the choice for professional DJs. I am telling myself this is my fathers day present to myself.
