But, sometimes there is a big difference between those who consider themselves audiophiles and those who actually are audiophiles. Being a true audiophile is more than owning high-end audio equipment; it’s a way of life. If you think you’re an audiophile, below are five signs that will either confirm or refute your claim.
#1: You Don’t Multitask When Listening to Music
Most people put on some music and then go about doing chores around the home. Not the audiophile. When an audiophile puts on music, he or she sits and listens to it. The music is what they are focused on. They want to hear every nuance, so they don’t do anything else but listen.
#2: You Don’t Listen to Music on an iPod or Other Digital Device
True audiophiles scoff at digitally reproduced music because it is almost always compressed. Most don’t even care for CDs. Traditional audiophiles enjoy their music on good old fashioned lossless vinyl. If they do opt for digital music every now and then, they will always choose lossless music, which is an uncompressed form of music and the closest that digital music can get to what was recorded in the studio.
#3: You Won’t Get Within Ten Feet of “Ear Buds”
To an audiophile, ear bud headphones are a disaster. They’re not only uncomfortable, the sound they produce is terribly substandard. An audiophile only uses headphones that are comfortable to wear (so they can enjoy longer periods of listening), built to the very highest quality, and of course, capable of delivering accurate sound reproduction.
#4: You Fuss Over Room Acoustics
Every room has its own acoustics, but most just aren’t up to snuff for the true audiophile. Therefore, changes often have to be made to a room in order for the audio to sound warm, lush, and tonally accurate. So, if you took your home audio room’s acoustics into consideration before you built your set up, then you just might be an audiophile.
#5: Audio Quality is More Important Than the Music Itself
An audiophile will revel in a piece of music, even if it is made by an artist he doesn’t particularly care for as long as that piece of music is of the utmost quality. By that same token, an audiophile will almost surely refuse to buy their favorite artist’s latest album if it is only being released on CD or MP3. To the genuine audiophile, audio quality is what it is all about.
