"As a ... , I prefer ..." (Audiophile One-liner)

Thought this would be an interesting exercise to see what people’s preferences are, but the key is to keep it concise. In academic writing we used to use this as a training to help ourselves clarify our ideas so that it can be better convey to the readers. I’ll start off with two of my own:

  • As a music lover, I prefer the texture of sound.
  • As a movie lover, I prefer sound stage and immersiveness.

Although this is just for fun, it might also show how different folks perceive their personal experience with gears and sound, makes it easier to know how preferences varies!

As a tinnitus sufferer, I prefer darker sounding anything.


Oof… sorry mate… It’s good that there are gears that may still fit your preference. As far as I know, the opposite could be that people who have hearing loss may prefer a brighter sounding anything, I suppose?

As an amateur and noob to the hobby, I prefer soundstage.

Dunno why, it just takes me places. i’ll take a wide as fuck headphone over a detailed one any day as I can’t tell detailed from very detailed anyway :stuck_out_tongue:


wait till you experience imaging!!!

it’s very cool with headphones…but way better with speakers!

I definitly here imaging too. And I like it… But somehow ‘less precise but wider’ still kills it for me :stuck_out_tongue:

Also no speakers. No money

Oh yeah no, I couldn’t afford even a 20$ pair atm… I mean I could. But priorities :stuck_out_tongue:

Speakers are low priority. I live in a flat with thin walls so wouldn’t be able to use them too much since I hate being an annoyance.


Same problem here
