My first introduction to the high end audio world was when I discovered that there were such things as "Hi Res" rated headphones. I wanted a pair, because I thought it would make my music sound way better. I also found out that there was something called an "IEM", and it was a better, upgraded version of an in ear headphone, and it came with the "Hi Res" certification. Then, I saved up money to buy my first pair of IEMs. The amazing FH1s, made by FiiO. These gems made my music, although lossy compression, sound a million times better, with the muddiness and shrieking highs from my 5 dollar drug store headphones being thrown into the dumpster.
